Test Team

Making up our test panel are our own experienced Cars.co.za road test team members, as well as respected guest judges that join us for back-to-back testing at Gerotek in Gauteng in November. In building the expanding judging panel, the goal was to achieve a balance of motoring expertise (particularly in the first two phases of the programme, which determine the finalists) and respected non-motoring, highly analytical media professionals, who, in many ways, represent the consumer at the test days.
