It would seem like the guys behind the Car Awards Group (CAGI) are building a strong foundation for a tradition by again revealing the Philippine Car of the Year awardee at the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS). As you already know based on an earlier report, CAGI will be announcing the best car launched in the Philippine market in 2011 and 2012 with an awarding set at the World Trade Center tonight. 

In keeping with tradition, if we may already call it that, we also took a chance at getting the list of category winners from no less than CAGI president Ferman Lao, who is also the technical editor of Top Gear Philippines. We got lucky. 

So here, folks, are the category winners in the 2011-2012 Car of the Year: Kia Picanto 1.0 MT (basic subcompact car), Suzuki Swift 1.4 AT (subcompact car), Hyundai Elantra 1.8 GLS AT (compact car), Volvo S60 T4 (luxury midsize car), Kia Sportage 2.0 (crossover), Mini Countryman S (luxury compact crossover), Mitsubishi Montero Sport 4x2 MT (4x2 sport-utility vehicle), Mitsubishi Montero Sport GT-V 4x4 AT (4x4 SUV), Ford Explorer V6 AWD (luxury SUV), Mitsubishi Strada 4x2 AT (4x2 pickup truck) and Mitsubishi Strada 4x4 AT (4x4 pickup truck).

And now for the other part of the tradition, it's time for you to guess which vehicle from this list of category winners will receive the 2011-2012 Philippine Car of the Year trophy. Let's see if our pick matches the one chosen by the car experts from CAGI.
