The hunt for the best car begins! Go for the win!


Our auto brands are aiming for the win!

The hunt for the best car of the year has begun as Cagi (Car Awards Group Inc.) finally launched its vehicle test which started on October 6 at the Filinvest City in Alabang.

With over 60 of the newest vehicle contenders, our brands Chevrolet, Foton, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Nissan, and Suzuki, are up for the challenge by sending their best latest unit to the test fest.

Instrumented tests done by Cagi reveal the actual performance of the tested cars during pedal-to-the-metal acceleration, pylon, and hard-braking challenges. The tests are done three times for each and are implemented using the latest and most precise instruments, such as the GPS-racelogic VBox with gyro sensors for the handling test.

This test fest by Cagi has been considered as the most ideal organized vehicle evaluation system. Cagi’s evaluations are structured and simple enough to be understood by common readers especially the media and precise enough for motoring technical evaluators.

Cagi will award the much-coveted Car of the Year-Philippines (Coty-P) and Truck of the Year-Philippines (Toty-P) titles to the best vehicles evaluated. Other awards will also be given for the following categories: basic subcompact; subcompact, premium subcompact; compact car, executive car, luxury compact car; ultraluxury car, subcompact crossover; compact crossover; large crossover; compact SUV; midsize SUV; pickup 4×2; pickup 4×4; subcompact MPV; compact MPV; and large MPV/van.

The entries that top their respective classes then become the candidates for Coty-P and Toty-P.

Cagi has started hunting for the best cars since 2004, giving recognition to the most outstanding vehicles in the market, and, in the process, its program has been a big help to the consumers giving them awareness about their chosen cars.

This year’s search for the Car of the Year Philippines is supported by Caltex with Techron, Filinvest City Alabang, the Manila International Auto Show, Worldbex Services International, SpeedLab, AAP, Victoria Court, Team Spyder, MG Madrid & Co., Icubus Solutions and Winner Graphics.
