The top two award winners will be chosen out of 14 finalists. These 14 category winners come from seven manufacturers and 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.”
