No Toy on SA Car of the Year list

The 2011 SA Car of the Year finalists has been announced. I’m not a car expert but I know South Africans love their Toys (aka Toyota). So it is strange to see no Toyota on the Top 10 list.

Here are the finalists:   

BMW 5 Series 530d

Citroen DS3 1.6 THP Sport

Ford Figo 1.4 Ambiente

Honda CR-Z 1.5 i-VTEC Hybrid

Hyundai iX35 2.0 CRDi GLS Automatic AWD

Hyundai Sonata 2.4 GLS Automatic Exec

Kia Sportage 2.0 VGT Diesel AWD Auto

Opel Astra 1.4T Enjoy Plus

Volkswagen Amarok 2.0 BiTDI 4×2 Double Cab

Volkswagen Polo 1.6 Comfortline TDI 77kW

The next step in the process will be to determine the winner at a two-day test session to be held in February 2011 at the Gerotek test facility near Pretoria, where the cars will be assessed independently by the jury members.

What car do you think will be the SA Car of the Year 2011?
