Winners to be revealed during Montreal International Auto Show TVA broadcast on February 20, 2021

TORONTO, Jan. 18, 2021 /CNW/ – The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) announced today three finalists in each of eight vehicle categories that will ultimately determine the 2021 Canadian Car of the Year and Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 250 vehicles were eligible for evaluation during the 2020 calendar year by AJAC journalist members, who collectively comprise the most esteemed group of professional automotive media in Canada. For the 2021 program, vehicles that are newly redesigned, refreshed, and carried over from previous model years were considered, provided a minimum number of ballots were submitted by AJAC journalists, who test entries on the same roads and in the same conditions experienced by Canadian drivers from coast to coast.

The next step in the 2021 Canadian Car of the Year and Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year awards will see the winning vehicles in each of these eight categories announced on February 20, 2021, during the Montreal International Auto Show’s “Auto Zone” broadcast to be shown on Quebec’s TVA network at 10:00 AM Eastern.
