Best cars in Canada for 2021

Best cars in Canada for 2021

The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) announced today the vehicles its members selected as the best in Canada for 2021 in each of 8 categories spanning segments that include cars, utility vehicles, and pick-up trucks.

With this announcement, 6 vehicle manufacturers move one step closer to winning the ultimate accolades of 2021 Canadian Car of the Year and 2021 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year. 

Kia and Genesis have both earned a pair of category wins this year with the Kia Telluride marking a repeat win in its category. Mazda, Subaru, Nissan, and Ram each take home best-in-class trophies to add to their cabinets, with the Mazda3 also receiving a second win in a row.

More than 250 vehicles were eligible for evaluation and voting in this year’s awards, including all on-sale vehicles: those newly designed, recently refreshed, and carried over from the previous year were all eligible upon receiving a minimum number of ballots submitted by AJAC journalists. Voting data was collected from expert jurors based from Vancouver to Halifax, who tested each vehicle on the same roads and in the same conditions faced by Canadian drivers from coast to coast every day.

“Despite the many challenges presented throughout 2020, AJAC journalists rallied to submit ballots based on real-world test drives and produce this list of winners presented on Zone Auto today in collaboration with the Montreal International Auto Show,” said Stephanie Wallcraft, AJAC president. “AJAC counts dozens of Canada’s foremost automotive critics among its membership. In producing these results, our journalist members demonstrated fierce dedication to their craft, informing Canadian drivers of the vehicles worthy of their purchase consideration in 2021.”

All 8 of these vehicles now qualify to be named 2021 Canadian Car of the Year or 2021 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year. These awards will be presented in March; details of that announcement will follow at a later date.

Here are the 2021 Canadian cars of the year and 2021 Canadian utility car of the year:
