The Drive Car Of The Year (COTY) Award is one of the biggest tests of it’s kind in Australia. Every year the Drive team retreats to a small patch of Victoria with 45 cars and a week of testing for the Drive COTY Awards.
COTY is a massive event that involves months of preparation, a grueling week of testing covering a combined 20,000km and the most expensive coverage in print and online of any COTY awards in the country.
The result is a comprehensive consumer guide to the entire new — car market, giving an insight into the best car for you — whatever you’re looking for.
This year we felt that four of the winners were really worth highlighting:
* Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel, Drive’s Best 4WD Of The Year.
* Ford Territory, 2011 Best SUV Over $40,000.
* Ford Mondeo, 2011 Best Family Car.
* Ford Focus Trend, 2011 Best Small Car.
