2016 NACTOY shortlists

Jurors have decided which vehicles are going to be eligible for the 2016 North American Car of the Year and Truck / Utility of the Year awards.

Their next task is to vote on the two shortlists, in order to determine the three finalists in each category. Those results are due to be announced on the 8th of December.

A final ballot will then take place, ahead of the overall winners being named at January's 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

2016 North American Car of the Year shortlist:
  • BMW 7 Series
  • Cadillac CT6
  • Chevrolet Camaro
  • Chevrolet Malibu
  • Chevrolet Volt
  • Honda Civic
  • Kia Optima
  • Mazda MX-5 Miata
  • Nissan Maxima
  • Toyota Prius
