Part 1: Family Cars (over $25,000), Prestige, Sports and Performance
Part 3: Family Cars (under $25,000), Luxury Coupe & Sedan, Minivans
Part 4: Wagons, Intermediate & Luxury SUVs
Economy cars and sport coupes under and over $30,000 are on the menu this
week in this our second instalment of the cars entered for the AJAC Canadian
Car and Truck of the Year awards. The economy category is an East vs. East
battle between Korean and Japanese car companies. Unfortunately the Toyota
Echo was not entered, as it would have been a serious contender for honours
in this group and the new Lexus IS 300 should have been entered in the over
$30,000 sport coupe/sedan category.
Economy (under $18,000)
Although the price bar for economy car has climbed
to $18,000, the quality standard in this class has also risen sharply in
Sports Coupe/Sedan (under $30,000):
In this vehicle class performance is
married to economy, value and practicality.
Sports Coupe/Sedan (over $30,000)
Lots of high-octane excitement in this category.
Next Week: A look at the entries for Family Car under $25,000, the Luxury
Coupe/Sedan category and the Minivan entries for 2001 Canadian Car and Truck
of the Year.
