Car of the Year Philippines 2011-2012 to be awarded this week


It’s that time of the year again where another vehicle will be crowned as Car of the Year Philippines by The Car Awards Group Inc. (CAGI). This time it’s for 2011-2012, and a total of 36 cars in different categories ranging from basic mini cars to full-sized luxury SUVs introduced between November 1, 2010 and October 31, 2011 are competing.

Every ride has gone through a qualitative test that’s based on “look” and “feel”, and a technical test that analyzes acceleration, braking, and handling performance. Carried out by some of the country’s best motoring journalists, the results have been tallied and audited in order to determine the car with the best value for money.

Among the previous winners of this award are the Honda Accord (2004), Honda Civic (2005), Mazda 6 (2006), Volvo C30 (2007), Subaru Impreza STI (2008), Subaru Legacy 2.5 Liter GT (2009), and the Chevrolet Cruze (2010-2011).

The award will be given on the opening day of the 8th Manila international Auto Show the day after tomorrow, March 29, 2012 at the Philippine Trade Training Center (PTTC) in Pasay City.
