AJAC Canadian Car of The Year Award
Sponsored by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC), the Canadian Car of the Year Awards are presented annually to the best new vehicles in various categories?and to the best overall Car of the Year and Truck of the Year.
Once a year, the best automotive journalists from across Canada come together at the Shannonville Motorsport Park near Belleville, Ontario, for a four day “TestFest” of intensive and rigorous test-driving. Because they are based on objective and scientific testing, rather than popularity contests, and because the results are presented in secret ballots tallied by KPMG, an international accounting firm, these awards have proved extremely influential with consumers.
