The four winners of the 2024 Canadian Car of the Year Awards (CCOTY), presented by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC), were announced during the opening ceremonies of the Canadian International Auto Show, earlier today.

The Toyota Prius is the 2024 Canadian Car of the Year. Judges loved the eye-catching latest generation of the pioneering hybrid model and placed it ahead of its fellow finalists, the Acura Integra Type S and Honda Accord, in the final ballots.

The 2024 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year is the Toyota Grand Highlander. Toyota’s new three-row SUV has attracted plaudits for its space and efficient hybrid powertrain options.

There are also two awards for the growing electric vehicle market. The Genesis Electrified G80 takes home the award as the 2024 Canadian Electric Car of the Year. It’s the latest of several CCOTY awards in recent years for Genesis, for whom the gas-powered G80 model was a CCOTY category winner in 2021.

Meanwhile, the 2024 Canadian Electric Utility Vehicle of the Year is the Genesis Electrified GV70, which edged out the two other finalists— the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV9—in the final vote.

“AJAC is proud to present our highest honours to the 2024 Canadian Car of the Year Awards winners, marking the cars, trucks and SUVs that our members have voted to be the best vehicles on sale in Canada this year,” said AJAC President Evan Williams. “AJAC members represent the country’s largest and most diverse group of automotive experts. We test vehicles from coast to coast on the same roads and in the same conditions that Canadians experience every day. When the time came to decide, our members cast nearly 2,000 ballots. Our depth of experience and expertise is how we know Canadians can count on our assessments and on the Canadian Car of the Year Awards when it comes time to choose their next vehicle.”
