The Annual Canadian Automotive Jury’s 2019 Best of the Best Announced


A jury of senior Canadian automotive journalists have selected the Genesis G70 as the Canadian Automotive Jury’s 2019 Best of the Best Winner.

From the 10 Best of the Best Finalists the Genesis G70 was recognized as “the one and only, best of the best” of the current crop of 2019 model year vehicles sold in Canada.

The Canadian Automotive Jury’s annual Best of the Best Awards, which are funded exclusively by the jurors, are unique in Canada. The Jury, which is made up of senior automotive journalists who account for the vast majority of automotive coverage read or watched in Canada, fully evaluate the latest vehicles to determine the Best of the Best.

To qualify for the Best of the Best Award, 2019 model-year vehicles must have be on sale in Canadian showrooms by October 31, 2018. From this group, Jury members chose nine finalists. The reigning champion, the 2018 Best of the Best Winner, the Kia Stinger, is automatically included and rounds out the top 10 contenders.

In selecting the Genesis G70 as its Best of the Best, Graeme Fletcher said, “ It was a difficult choice with so many great cars hitting the road — the list ran from the Jaguar I-Pace and Mitsubishi Outlander to the Hyundai Kona. However, the cream always rises to the top, and so it was with the Genesis G70.”
