2018 OzRoamer COTY Magazine 1200

Industry’s Most Comprehensive 4WD and AWD SUV Awards, OzRoamer’s Car of the Year, Announced.

OzRoamer’s annual Car of the Year awards, widely regarded as the industry’s most comprehensive review of the 4WD and AWD SUV’s in the Australian market, have been announced.

Covering seventy vehicles in twelve categories, price ranges of sub-$40,000 to in excess of $100,000 and nearly every manufacturer, the complete buyers guide is known for being specifically aimed at helping consumers make educated buying decisions.

Editor in Chief, Rob Fraser, explains: “By breaking down the categories into those that best represent consumers buying decisions and parameters, the buyers guide enables consumers to compare vehicles in a logical fashion and really get a feel for each individual offering in their chosen segment.

“All the vehicles nominated in these awards are strong contenders and hold individual merit, however the winners highlight class-leading attributes and those that offer the coveted combination of outstanding design, functionality, performance and value for money.

With SUV’s accounting for around 45% of the new vehicle market last year, a thorough buyers guide and considered awards process to help consumers navigate the market has never been more pertinent.”

Now in its eighth year, the awards continue to receive recognition from within the industry, individual consumers and motoring organisations.
