Vehicle Of The Year Winners 2021 Final Results

Another year and another great list of winning vehicles on sale in Malaysia.

There are many Car Of The Year events (we call our event vehicle of the year) around the globe and we Malaysians have had our fair share of awards ceremonies over the past two decades.

It is the best way of honoring the best vehicles the automotive industry has brought to our showrooms and to give our Malaysian car buyers (and maybe some regional car buyers as well since we have regional readers) an idea of which is the best vehicle in each and every segment.

However, for most ‘car of the year’ events, the winners ‘buy’ their trophies as the event marketing people forward sell the possibility of a win. This we DO NOT do!

Then there are some others who just proudly ‘offer’ the trophy to car manufacturers willing to pay for the trophy.

Well, it is a known fact over that past 12 years that the vehicle of the year (VOTY) event is 100 percent HONEST and TRUE where all car manufacturers in Malaysia have no idea of their success or not until the evening of the yearly event when the winners are announced.

This is why our event has been ‘powered’ by Allianz General Insurance Company (Malaysia) Berhad’ from the start until this year and this partnership will continue.

The co-sponsor of the event, Giga Martime Group (GMG) continues to be a part of this event because of its honest judging team of 4 experienced judges from , and also .

Here are this year’s winners.

We wish all the winners a well deserved congratulation (which should be shared with their engineers and designers) and for those who did not take an award back, we wish you all the best for next year.
