Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

The 2015 Car of the Year is already waiting for us to take it for a test drive in Denmark. Too bad we haven’t got a clue which one it is yet.

Like last year, three of us editors here at totalcarmagazine.com are travelling to Tannisby in Denmark to test all cars in the running for the Car of the Year title. András Stump and myself are accompanying our colleague Zsolt Csikós, one of the Hungarian members of the Car of the Year jury. We’ll do our best to collect as much information as possible on the candidates waiting for us in the sleepy Danish seaside town.

Last year’s line-up was pretty awesome. To name but a few we had the opportunity to test the BMW i3, the Mercedes-Benz S-class, the Jaguar F-type and of course the 2013 winner, the Peugeot 308. We all loved the Tesla Model S, which didn’t win, but surprised and amazed everyone who took it for a drive.

The list of this year’s nominees is equally impressive:

  - BMW 2-Series Active Tourer

  - BMW X4

  - Citroën C1

Citroën C4 Cactus

  - Ford EcoSport

  - Ford Mondeo

  - Hyundai i20

  - Infiniti Q50

  - Kia Soul

  - Lexus NX

  - Mercedes-Benz C Class

  - Mercedes-Benz GLA

 -  Mercedes-Benz S Coupé

  - Mini Cooper

  - Nissan Pulsar

  - Nissan Qashqai

Nissan X-Trail

  - Opel Corsa

Peugeot 108

  - Renault Twingo

  - Skoda Fabia

  - Subaru WRX STI

  - Suzuki Celerio

  - Toyota Aygo

  - Volkswagen Passat

  The Audi TT, the Jeep Renegade, the Porsche Macan and the new Smarts will be brought to Tannisby as well, so we’ll be spoilt for choice.

Please place your bets, gents. Which one do you think will be named 2015 Car of the Year?
