A hardback book with high production values and lavish design, this annual publication features the top 10 concept and production cars of the year, and profiles of the dozen or so design directors who vote to select CDN's Car Design of the Year in both categories.

Also included in the book are trend reports, launch summaries, 'who went where' tracking of the careers of design directors, winning entries in CDN's global student design awards, and a special profile of lifetime achievement (for Edition 1, reviewing 2013, it was Marcello Gandini).

Car Design Review is published at the time of the Geneva Auto Show. The awards for CDN's Best Concept Design of the Year and Best Production Design of the Year, along with a presentation for Lifetime Achievement, are made at Car Design Night.
