Singapore’s trusted motoring portal nominates the best of motoring from 2022, from the best eco-cars, to family cars, and value champions


CarBuyer Singapore is pleased to announce its very first Car Of The Year awards event, which in true CarBuyer fashion, is not about the cars, nor the brands, but you – the readers. 

CarBuyer has been bringing Singaporeans quality, authoritative motoring content for decades, thanks to its crack team of experienced writers. With its evolution into a full new and used car marketplace, we decided it was high time to reward our readers further – by answering the most common question we get: Which is the best car? 

What’s so special about CarBuyer’s COTY? 

Only cars the CarBuyer team have personally tested and reviewed will be nominated – like the BMW i4 above

It’s by us, obviously. Jokes aside, our COTY is much like our content – it’s been designed with the readers in mind.

The CarBuyer editorial team has temporarily fused into a singular hivemind with a hunger for tyres and car knowledge, and shortlisted the most worthy cars they tested in 2022. But it’s up to only one multi-brained entity to vote for the winner: Our readers. 

What do I get out of it? 

Besides helping to choose the winners of one of the most authoritative car awards in Singapore, you’ll also stand a chance to win one of the closest things to cold hard cash in the Lion City : S$50 NTUC vouchers. And the more you vote, the more chances you stand to win. 

Who’s in the running for the main award?

What are the other categories?

In our true reader-centric way, we’ve kept our COTY very digestible and easy to understand. There are eight categories, each shaped with a specific purpose in mind. There’s a main COTY award, as mentioned above, for our overall winner, with seven other sub-categories:
– Value Champion
– Best Eco Car
– Dream Car
– Fun To Drive
– Best Family Car
– Funky x Fashionable
– Best Luxury Car

But on the whole the COTY awards are all about letting regular Singaporean carbuyers know what’s best, including those who want maximum bang for the buck, those who are eco-conscious, or those who just wanna have wheely good time. 

Which other cars are nominated? 

The nominees cover cars that the CarBuyer team actually tested and reviewed in 2022. We’ve nominated more than 40 cars across the eight categories, and they span all budgets, brands, and segments, ranging from some of the most affordable cars around to dream machines. Whatever floats your automotive boat, it’s probably here – now go vote and make sure to support what you think deserves to be awarded!

How do I get started? 

Visit our COTY microsite here and you’ll be on your way. 

And lastly, while this is made to serve our readers, we also have to take a moment to thank those who made it possible – our excellent official sponsors:

– Starhub, the official media partner.
– Caltex, our Gold COTY sponsor and official petrol partner,
– SP Group, our official EV charging partner.
