2008 Geneva Motor Show: AutoWeek Editors Honor the Best

The magazine's Editors' Choice Awards recognize Best in Show, Best Concept, Most Significant and Most Fun

AUTOWEEK

The AutoWeek editorial staff today announced its Editors' Choice Award winners for the 2008 Geneva Motor Show.

For more than a decade, the editors of the weekly automotive-enthusiast magazine have scoured show floors in Detroit, Geneva, Paris, Frankfurt and Tokyo, selecting winners in four categories: Best in Show, Best Concept, Most Significant and Most Fun.

The 2008 AutoWeek Editors' Choice Award winners for the Best of Geneva are:

BEST IN SHOW: Alfa Romeo 8C Spider

MOST SIGNIFICANT: Ford Fiesta
