Race for Car-of-the-year Hots Up
The organiser of Nigeria Car-of-the-year (COTY) Award has selected Toyota Corolla, Kia Rio, Peugeot 301 and Nissan Almera to compete for the coveted price.
Winner of the Car-Of-The-Year will be announced on November 26 at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The Nigeria Car of the Year competition has been around over the years and the strictest criteria apply to the finalists. To appraise and select the winner, each of the listed cars will thoroughly be put through its paces on the road by the motoring journalists. To emerge tops, the car that will win the shield will have to tick all the boxes in terms of value for money, safety, innovation, technology and dynamics.
During the test drive, a number of factors will be used as parameters to select the car that would be selected as the eventual winners.
These factors, according to the Nigeria Auto Journalists Award (NAJA) include, but not limited to each car’s value proposition in terms of road handling, stability, functionality, comfort, safety features, overall design, availability and accessibility of spare parts and product affordability.
The annual NAJA Award, which is the most respected automotive award in Nigeria, attracts a lot of excitement and suspense among stakeholders within and outside the industry.
