Experienced Test Team

Our panel of testers research and debate each of the cars on sale in South Africa and determine their eligibility and all-round ability against the predetermined “pillars of success” in each of the 13 categories we have selected. Five cars are selected through rigorous debate and analysis in each category during the first (semi-finalist) stage.

External Jury

When selecting our highly respected external jury, emphasis was placed on selecting candidates that are not necessarily active in the automotive space. This was done to ensure that alternative viewpoints to our "petrolheaded" test team's opinions are also incorporated.
