I hope that I will be able to bring my humble contribution to the Autobest jury, the second biggest independent European motoring Jury and one of the most important organizations on the emergent markets which finds itself in a perpetual state of development”.

Ilia Seliktar, the President of the Autobest jury, stated: “We thank Neven for the 3 years of activity as a member of the Autobest jury and we welcome Ozren as a representative of Croatia. We believe that he is a good adition to our organization, being a journalist with a lot of experience in motoring.”

AUTOBEST organization is the only international independent jury focusing on “best buy” cars available on the European markets. To become an AUTOBEST winner, a car must be the best offer for the average customer. Price, service network, spare parts distribution and versatility are the most important criteria in the voting process. Design and new high-tech gadgets are also coming in line as important criteria’s for voting. AUTOBEST is using a transparent voting system, with a complex matrix of 13 criteria in deciding the winner.

The AUTOBEST Jury is also paying attention to the efforts that automotive industry is making. Investments, new automotive job opportunities for the population, spending funds for ecological initiatives, the support for the emerging regions of Europe are carefully checked and appreciated by the Jury.

For this year, AUTOBEST members of the Jury are coming from 15 European countries and represent a virtual market with more than 300 million people. Each member of the Jury is an outstanding motoring journalist, a respected voice in his country. AUTOBEST is the second largest independent motoring Jury of Europe.
