Jury's out on the Best of the Best car finalists Add to ...

And so it begins. As we draw nearer to the end of the year, the new car awards start rolling in - beginning with the Canadian Automotive Jury, which has announced its third annual Best of the Best Award finalists. The not-for-profit organization consists of 10 writers - including Globe Drive contributors Jeremy Cato, Petrina Gentile and Michael Vaughan - who cover the automotive industry in Canada. According to the CAJ, its format is such that the judges "don't exclusively focus on a specific model within a family of vehicles or only "all-new" models and include the reigning 2011 Canadian Automotive Jury Best of the Best Winner, the Ford Fiesta, which is automatically included as a finalist." The winner will be announced in November. The Volkswagen Golf won the group's inaugural award in 2010.
