The NACTOY awards are decided by a jury of 53 automotive journalists from the US and Canada.

The judging panel votes for the vehicles that set new benchmarks in innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value.

The panel voted early in December, with ballots sent directly to Deloitte.

Winners will be revealed during a news conference at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

Last year’s winners were the Volkswagen Golf and the Ford F-150.
