The countdown for the 2014 World Car Awards ceremony has begun and on Thursday, April 17th, 2014 we’ll have the results presented at the New York International Auto Show.
There are four prizes in the competition - one for the World Car of the Year, World Luxury Car, World Performance Car, World Green Car and World Car Design of the Year.

With each class now having over 10 entries, the top three finalists will also be announced prior to the big even at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show on Tuesday, March 4th.

The 69 distinguished international automotive journalists selected the 2014 Lexus IS for both the World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year awards due to its new characteristics.

For 2014 Lexus completely changed the IS sport sedan. In now comes with unique design features inspired by the LF-CC concept, like the big spindle grille, insect-like headlamps with separate L-shaped daytime running lights and swooshing side skirts with their lines merging into the taillamps that flow downwards on the rear quarters.

The interior is again completely new and offers more space while the engine range is now comprising three choices - a 2.5-liter V6, a 2.5-liter inline-four aided by and electric motor and the bigger 3.5-liter V6.
