AJAC 2018 car of the year finalists announced

The big Canadian Auto Show, held in Toronto, is only about a week away. It seems that every day, another showcase, or related attraction is announced. It should turn out to be quite the event this year!

This time, it’s the Automobile Journalist Association of Canada’s 2018 Canadian Car of the Year and Utility Vehicle of the Year finalists that are revealed.

This year’s process was different from the past where all new vehicles available to Canadian buyers, not just those new to the market, were eligible for an award. Nearly 100 AJAC journalists have cast 3,000 ballots on 182 vehicles and we now have the Top 3 in each category.

The three car finalists are:

Honda Accord (Best Large Car in Canada)

Mazda 3 (Best Small Car in Canada)

Volvo S90/V90 (Best Large Premium Car in Canada).

The three utility vehicles finalists are:

Chrysler Pacifica (Best Minivan in Canada)

Mazda CX-5 (Best Small Utility Vehicle in Canada)

Mazda CX-9 (Best Large Utility Vehicle in Canada).

The winners will be divulged at 8:15 a.m. on February 15 during Media Day.
