CAGI members, motoring journalists from various publications and media outfits, conducted a series of test fests based at the Eton Centris Walk for the qualitative rounds. The test fests serve to provide each tester a feel for how each model fares in everyday driving.

After the Metro Manila test fests, CAGI’s tech team spent 4 days at the Clark International Speedway for the technical testing. Using equipment provided by technology partner SpeedLab, they were able to measure how each model performed in a series of acceleration, braking, and cornering exercises..

Utilizing the combined results of the qualitative and instrumented tests, CAGI then determines the winners in their respective classes ranging from entry level all the way up to premium and luxury brands.

“There can only be one Car Of The Year, and that winner will be revealed when the 2013 Manila International Auto Show opens at the World Trade Center on April 4,” said Lao.
