Another Car of the Year adds safety nod

coty-2015Another Car of the Year award has added a safety category – acknowledging the importance of the issue to buyers.

The AMI Autocar Car of the Year will announce a safety award as one of their categories as part of their awards in early December.

The award was added off the back of research AC Neilson research showing that 78% of New Zealanders identified safety as an important factor when choosing a new car.

The New Zealand Car of the Year, run by the Automobile Association and New Zealand Motoring Writers Guild, already offers a safety award, based off Australian New Car Assessment Program data.

The AMI Autocar process is also based off ANCAP results, but includes a review of proactive safety features.
