The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) named its 2018 Canadian Car and Utility Vehicle of the Year at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto.

FCA Canada won the 2018 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year award for the Chrysler Pacifica. The Pacifica also won the AJAC Best Minivan of the year title for 2018.

“There’s an extra air of significance, when one of our homegrown products wins a domestic award,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, FCA Canada. “Chrysler Pacifica’s recognition as 2018’s Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year reinforces its position as the most-awarded minivan of the last two years, and provides important third-party validation for the exclusive suite of versatility, style, safety and technology that it brings to Canadians.”

The Honda Accord was named 2018 Canadian Car of the Year.

"We're honoured and humbled to receive this recognition from a group of respected automotive journalists in Canada," said Jean Marc Leclerc, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Honda Canada. "We're both proud and thankful for all of our associates who supported the production and development of this vehicle and for our passionate customers who have supported the Accord for the past forty years."
