Who judges Australia's Best Cars? Now in its tenth year, Australia's Best Cars is a joint program that combines the experience and expertise of Australia's six state auto clubs, under the umbrella of the Australian Automobile Association. The chief judge is R ACV's Er nest Litera. Back row from left: Mark Borlace RAA, Barry Green RACQ, Darren Moody RACT, Aaron Harding RACWA, Ernest Litera RACV Front from left: Scott Nargar NRMA, Tim Pomroy NRMA, Greg Smith RACV, John Ewing RACQ, Kirstie Miller AAA, Alby Martin RAA What are weightings? Australia's Best Cars are scored across 17-21 criteria. Depending on the category, each criterion carries a weighting that denotes the importance -- either 'low', 'medium', 'high' or 'critical' -- that the consumer places on it when making their buying decision. That weighting is applied to the scores to help produce the overall score. The weightings are determined by surveys of consumers carried out by Australia's Best Cars each year, and as market expectations in a particular vehicle category change, so do the weightings. Read all about it! Again this year, the results will be presented in a comprehensive magazine. Think of it as a dedicated car-buying handbook, with detailed assessments, opinions and verdicts beyond the bare bones of winners and runners-up. Australia's Best Cars 2009 magazine is on sale in RACT branches and on the stands at newsagents now. Which car is best for you? On the Australia's Best Cars website you can choose your perfect car by selecting the criteria that are important to you. Safety and environmental factors are heavily-weighted. The best car for you may not be the winning car in its category. Check the interactive website at www.australiasbestcars.com.au 37 December 09 / January 10
