Carsguide car of the year 2008

The first five finalists have been announced.

It's time to reveal the second half of the carsguide Car of the Year field - and this time it's all closer to home.

The second group of five finalists includes a pair of Aussie icons and three of the perennial favourites out of Japan.

These COTY contenders have been through the same gruelling three-day test program as the opening five contenders - the Audi A4, BMW 135i Sport, Fiat 500, Jaguar XF diesel and VW Tiguan.

With the full final field of 10 revealed, the votes are in and a winner will be announced next Friday.
