Canadian Car of the Year announced

In an early morning press conference at the opening of the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, the Hyundai Elantra was declared the 2012 Canadian Car of the Year (CCOTY) by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC).

The Elantra was up against the Hyundai Accent and the Kia Optima. All three were among many vehicles put through a series of tests by 70 Canadian automotive journalists in the last week of October, 2011.

The win comes just over a month after the car was named the 2012 North American car of the year during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, where it edged out the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Passat.

The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) have awarded the Chevrolet Cruze as the 2011 Canadian Car of the Year at the Canadian International Auto Show.

"The Cruze represents our line in the sand: We're playing to win - and delivering the goods - in the small car business."

On the other side of town Ford fans were pleased to hear that the significantly revised 2011 Ford Edge was named 2011 Canadian Utility Vehicle.

"We are pleased to receive the 2011 Canadian Utility of the Year award from AJAC," said David Mondragon, president and CEO, Ford of Canada. "The Canadian-built 2011 Ford Edge features industry-leading technologies that create a whole new in-vehicle experience."
