judging list
We have once again shortlisted more than 80 cars, which will compete in over 25 categories in this year's Sgcarmart Car of the Year competition. As you would probably know by now, the annual Sgcarmart Car of the Year competition is aimed at recognising the efforts and creativities of car manufacturers in advancing the automotive industry to a higher level once more in terms of design, performance, efficiency, versatility and value for money.
These seven criteria will contribute 5% to the total.

about car list

12 months of driving, hours of comparing, bickering, laughing and of course, writing about the cars we love the most, have gone by once again.


And as before, the sum of our yearlong endeavours has led us to the ninth instalment of Sgcarmart's Car of the Year Awards. This tedious car-on-car competition is a product of the Editorial team's strive for continuous improvement, as we invite you, our readers, to also have a hand in deciding which cars are going to be crowned the kings of their segments.


We've toiled (and overtimed) to ensure that the impartial system of this yearly competition is retained without compromising credibility, which means the same rules, and regulations remain - only cars that were launched and tested before 15 October 2018 qualify for Sgcarmart's Car of the Year Awards.


And of course, we're stoked to see the ninth iteration of this competition get under way for your reading and voting pleasure. To ensure you're just as fired up as us, we've also rounded up some very exciting prizes for you voters to take home. So, skim through our nominated cars and go pick your favourites!

As the Editorial Team grows, changes and learns, we aim to continuously improve the quality and quantity of our content, to bring about a more engaging and positive online experience, with credible pieces that will stay with our readers' forever.


While it sounds more evolutionary than revolutionary, it's definitely no walk in the park for us. This competition isn't just about throwing cars of a feather in a category and crowning a champ. It's about rewarding carmakers according to their achievements and capabilities of being the absolute crème de la crème.


There's no doubting the prospect of a few laughable outcomes in some categories but the Editorial Team is watching closely to ensure that nothing of such foolish nature goes down. And not to worry, we're not just any automotive website. We're Singapore's number one automotive portal. We'll get the show on the road and evaluate these cars just the way you want to read about them. So go and cast your votes and break some hearts.
