Every Motor Trend Car Of The Year Winner From 1949 To 2020, Visualized

Do you drive a car that is a "Car of the Year" winner?

Motor Trend magazine, which has been handing out the accolade since 1949, grades vehicles on six criteria: "advancement in design, engineering excellence, efficiency, safety, value and performance of intended function."

The Budget Direct Car Insurance team scoured the data and put together a chart of every car that Motor Trend has recognized since the inception of the honor.
