Next year’s South African Car of the Year competition has kicked off, with the first round of elimination done and dusted.

The 10 finalists were recently revealed by the South African Guild of Motoring Journalists.

The naming of the finalists follows voting by a 28-member jury from an original list of 35 eligible vehicle ranges.

All cars launched from August 2015 to August this year were eligible for the annual competition. All guild members could vote for 10 cars to be selected as semi-finalists.

Once voting closed, the jury members gathered and discussed the eligibility of all the cars. From this list, the top 20 cars were chosen, of which each member voted for his top 10.

The 10 finalists in alphabetical order are Audi A4, Honda Civic, Hyundai Tucson, Jaguar F-Pace, Mazda CX-3, Opel Astra, Renault Kadjar, Toyota Fortuner, Volkswagen Tiguan and Volkswagen Passat.
