INDIAN CAR OF THE YEAR

It all started back in 2005, when senior and eminent journalists from all the leading automobile magazines in India got together and decided to create and confer the Indian Car of the Year (ICOTY) award.

This award is an expert and independent judgment of the best new car. The highly experienced jury members are responsible for selecting a single decisive winner, and the voting process has been designed to be very fair and tamper-proof. Criteria like price, fuel-efficiency, styling, comfort, safety, performance, practicality, technical innovation, value for money, and suitability for Indian driving conditions are particularly important factors while deciding on the winner.

The ICOTY is the most credible and coveted award, and almost like the ‘Oscar’ of Indian car awards. It is gaining prominence with each passing year, and credit for this must go to JK Tyres, which have been supporting this award and sponsoring the grand award ceremonies right from the inception.
