2010 TG Awards: full winners list
And the Top Gear Car of the Year is... the Citroen DS3. The Awards issue of Britain's best-selling car magazine hits the newsstands today, with Citroen claiming top spot for the first time in the contest's 11-year history.
The DS3 fended off competition from a dozen of the most desirable cars of the last 12 months.
TG's most spectacular Awards issue ever was shot on location in China, against a backdrop of the Forbidden City, downtown Beijing and the Great Wall. The 12 category winners include nominations from Jeremy, James and Richard.
"Editing 2010's cars down to just 12 worthy winners was tough enough,"says Charlie Turner, Top Gear's Editor-in-Chief. "Getting them to China was even tougher. But I'm delighted with the results, and especially delighted to be crowning the DS3 our car of the year."
