2013 AJAC TestFest - Canadian Car of the Year testing

With almost 2000 individual test drives under their wheels in the past two-and-and-a-half days, more than 80 journalists have cast their ballots to determine the "Best New" vehicles of 2013 in 11 different categories.

Those ballots have now been compiled and the results are being audited by KPMG in preparation for announcement of the winners at a press conference in Niagara Falls, tonight (October 25).

In the meantime, AJAC's journalists are continuing to test vehicles for two more days in preparation for a final round of voting for the overall Canadian Car of the Year and Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year.

Each of the 11 category winners will be eligible to compete for one or the other of those awards, which will be announced on February 14, 2013 at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto.
