However, I think they will give it to the Toyobaru which, while a nicely handling car, barely deserves to be called a performance car
Its starting chassis has more potential than the majority of the BMW range. Were it equipped with a high-po engine with brakes and tires to match, it'd be running circles around anything with a roundel.
But it doesn't.

The car they're awarding does not have any high performance parts.

That like saying the 328i should be the performance car of the year because it can also be a M3.
