At the annual CNBC-TV18 OVERDRIVE Awards, we like to focus on the machinery being built or assembled here in India. However, we simply cannot ignore the machines that come fully imported into India, especially since there are now so many!

We have split the imported vehicles into different categories that are listed below along with the nominations under each category.

Import Car of the Year

  1. Audi TT 45 TSI Coupe
  2. Volvo V40
  3. Fiat 595 Competizione Abarth
  4. Maserati Quattraporte
  5. Audi S5 Sportback

Import SUV of the Year

  1. BMW X5M
  2. BMW X6M
  3. Volvo XC90
  4. Porsche Cayenne GTS

Performance Car of the Year

  1. BMW M3
  2. BMW M4
  3. Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG
  4. BMW M6 Gran Coupe
  5. BMW i8
  6. Mini Cooper S
  7. Audi RS6 Avant
  8. Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe
  9. Porsche Cayman/Boxster GTS

The judging for the import categories is a little different to our standard proceduresNot all of these cars are called to the track because we would like to focus on the cars that are assembled or manufactured in India. It's our way of helping out the local industry. Instead, the winners of these categories are judged in an internal process that takes place based on experience gleaned through our road tests. The criteria of course are the same - role fitness, value for money demand and of course, driver involvement.

The CNBC-TV18 OVERDRIVE Awards 2016 ceremony will be held on December 9, 2015. Stay tuned to know what we think are the best cars and bikes of the year.
