Most successful manufacturer

Fiat is comfortably in the lead here, with nine winners. It took victory for the first time in 1967 with the 124, and went on to earn four awards between 1984 and 1996. Its last success was with the 500 in 2008.

Fiat won’t be able to improve this year because it doesn’t have a contender in the seven-car shortlist, but it will still have the most wins for some time to come.

Renault has won six titles, while Ford and Peugeot are on five each.
