Best Cars 2019: These are real winners

C editor Ralph Alex on the real heroes of the Best Cars readers' poll, the results of which are now available: the models with the most victories in election history.

Björn Borg was once a guy, Roger Federer is one today. Angela Merkel, in her own way. The Rolling Stones, of course. Over many, many years they have won: titles, elections or millions of fans. There are series winners like this in the Best Cars readers' poll, in which readers of auto motor und sport have been voting since 1976 about which car is the best in its class. We'll tell you how your vote went this time from page 30. The report on the big award ceremony with celebrities from the international automotive industry will follow in the next issue. I can already reveal a little surprise here: Take a look at the winner of the import ranking in the sports car category, it is a very interesting newcomer. It is even more surprising how clearly our readers perceive and reward the special quality or performance, i.e. the great ability of certain models. Because that's the only way to become a serial winner.
