After the dust has settled down, I'm sure some of you might be curious as to how we've arrived at the results of sgCarMart's Cars Of The Year 2010. You can check out all the glitz and glamour here, but for the benefit of some people, let's revisit them once again. The Criteria We've used a total of eight criteria to determine our Cars Of The Year, and the first seven are as follows: - Views on model on sgCarMart.com - Price - Features (sunroof, push start button, smart key, electric seats, etc) - Performance (cc, turbo, engine type, top speed, acceleration, etc) - Fuel economy - Size - Safety features Each of them accounted for 10% of the score. That, of course, adds up to 70%. The final 30% comes from the last criteria, which comes from Consumer Voting. This gives the power to you, the viewers and readers, to determine sgCarMart's Cars Of The Year. Next, the categories. In this increasingly complicated world, it's hard to pigeonhole cars into specific classes nowadays. So, we've decided to keep it simple, and classify the entries into six basic categories, namely sedan, luxury sedan, hatchback, Sports-Utility Vehicle (SUV), Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV), and sports. However, even within each category there are a wide variety of cars to choose from, from both ends of the value spectrum. Therefore, for fairness, we've further divided each category into Premium and Normal classes. Making The Decision Apart from the thorough research and the in-depth judging criteria that were conducted for the contest, we worked out and based our choices on the ever-so-passionate testing and thorough reviews of almost every car make and model in the industry. Of course, it can't be just our opinions. As set out above, you, the readers, have a say as well through your voting. To thank you for your participation and support, we offered prizes to a few lucky voters, and you guys certainly didn't let us down. The Results When the votes were in and tallied, there were a few surprises. Needless to say, not everyone agreed, but the people have spoken. And the winners are... Hatchback - Honda Jazz Hatchback (Premium) - Volkswagen Golf Sedan - Mazda2 Sedan Sedan (Premium) - Mazda3 Sedan Luxury Sedan - Volvo S60 Luxury Sedan (Premium) - Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sports-Utility Vehicle - Honda CR-V Sports-Utility Vehicle (Premium) - Audi Q5 Multi-Purpose Vehicle - Honda Stream Multi-Purpose Vehicle (Premium) - Toyota Alphard Sports - Volkswagen Scirocco R Sports (Premium) - Audi RS5 Coupe Conclusion It had been a tough contest, but in the end, I'm sure everyone involved felt that it was worth the effort. As you can see from the pictures, the winners were certainly pleased too. We look forward to more and better contests in the coming year, and you can guarantee that sgCarMart's Cars Of The Year 2011 will be as fiercely competitive and exciting as 2010's, or even more. See you next year!
