The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) have announced three finalists in each of 12 vehicle categories that will ultimately determine the 2020 Canadian Car of the Year and Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year.

More than 1,200 ballots were submitted over nearly an entire calendar year by AJAC journalist members, who collectively comprise the most esteemed group of professional automotive media in Canada. Journalists drive the qualifying entries, which for the 2020 program saw last year’s category winners compete against next-generation or significantly updated vehicles, on the same roads and in the same conditions experienced by Canadian drivers from coast to coast.

The next step in the 2020 Canadian Car of the Year and Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year awards will see the winning vehicles in each of these 12 categories announced on January 16, 2020, at the Montreal International Auto Show. The overall winners will be revealed as part of the opening ceremonies for the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto on February 13, 2020, and the Canadian Green Car of the Year and Green Utility Vehicle of the Year awards will be presented at the Vancouver International Auto Show on Wednesday, March 25, 2020.
