The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada’s Best Car award is now down to three finalists.
Well, six, technically - but that’s a pretty steep winnowing from the 182 vehicles that were eligible for this year’s Canadian Car of the Year Awards. And it means there are now only three contenders (or a contender and two pretenders?) for the titles of Canadian Car of the Year and the Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year.
Mazda leads the way with three vehicles that are still in the running - and as a Mazda fan I’d be happy with any of them taking their categories. Alas, the prevailing “wisdom” seems to be aimed elsewhere, at least in the “car” of the year category.
