After weeks of competition, it’s official: the Mercedes GLA becomes the most beautiful car of the year, winning the final against the Mazda MX-30.

It had already been two months since the competition was launched, and now we finally know the one that was voted Most beautiful car of the year 2021. This is the new Mercedes GLA, which finally dethroned the Mazda MX-30 against which it fought in the final, after the successive elimination of the other models, namely the Honda E, le Skoda Enyaq et l’Opel Mokka-e. A victory that sounds like a small revenge for the star brand, after having seen its Class A and CLA be eliminated from previous editions. And what a victory! Because many Internet users have preferred the German SUV to the Japanese model, since the latter was elected by 60.73%. Among the voters, one lucky person will also be offered a copy of this Mercedes GLA, as is the case every year at the end of the competition. But for the first time, no physical award ceremony, health measures required, while this one, which takes place at the foot of the Invalides, opens every year on Festival Automobile International.

As a reminder, the participating models must have been launched in the year preceding the election, for a starting price of less than € 60,000, and must have been registered by the manufacturer directly. During this competition, the public is the only judge, with an online voting system allowing them to choose their favorite after a simple registration on the event site. No professional judgment therefore, unlike other competitions such as the Car of the Year. A jury is nevertheless set up to elect the winners of other categories, such as the hypercar of the year, the most beautiful interior or the Grand Prix du Design. We invite you to discover them now, just below!
