The South African Guild of Motoring Journalists has announced the candidates for the 2009 Car of the Year competition (COTY).
SA Car of the Year finalists
Every year members of the SAGMJ are invited to take part in a mail vote to decide on "semi-finalists" from among the vehicles launched during the year - usually from November of the previous year to October of the current year.
There are NINE finalists for the COTY competition and judging will take place in January.
The winner of the award will be announced in March 2009.
