FINALISTS ANNOUNCED FOR CANADIAN CAR,
UTILITY VEHICLE OF 2018

The two winners from 14 eligible vehicles will be announced Feb. 15 at the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto 


The 14 finalists from which the winners will be drawn for the 2018 Canadian Car of the Year and 2018 Utility Vehicle of the Year were revealed Thursday at the Montreal International Auto Show.

The top two award winners will be revealed Feb. 15 during Media Day at the Canadian International AutoShow at the downtown Metro Toronto Convention Centre.  The AutoShow will open to the public the following day, Feb. 16, and run through the following Sunday, Feb. 25.

The 14 category winners come from seven manufacturers. Mazda and Jaguar Land Rover led with winners in three categories each while Honda/Acura, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Volkswagen each had two winners.

The category winners were chosen by nearly 100 voting members of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC), who assessed the vehicles throughout the year by driving and testing them in a variety of conditions. They were scored anonymously on a number of attributes, including performance, technology, design, fuel consumption and value for money.

“Our voting policy was changed this year to make it more relevant for today’s car buyers,” said AJAC President Mark Richardson. “Our journalists are all experts in their automotive fields, and I’m very proud of their ability to help people decide on the best new vehicles to buy in 2018.”

The 14 vehicles listed below are eligible for consideration for either 2018 Canadian Car of the Year or 2018 Utility Vehicle of the Year, both of which will be determined by a separate round of voting.
