AJAC Announces 2018 CCTOY Finalists

The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC), has announced the finalists in each category of vehicle for 2018 Canadian Car of the Year and 2018 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year.

This year, voting was expanded to include all new vehicles available to Canadian buyers, not just those vehicles new to the market. For the first time, AJAC’s voting journalists were able to directly score vehicles against their competition, whether they were all-new for 2018 or returning popular models.
