The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) has named the Toyota Camry Hybrid, in front of nine other best new category winners, overall winner of the 2007 Canadian Car of the Year. The Camry is the first hybrid to ever win the top award which is based on new vehicles released during the year. Each entrant is thoroughly tested and must perform well in the real-world to have a chance at joining the winners' circle.

The hybrid was not the only low emissions, high efficiency winner on the night; Mercedes-Benz's BlueTec diesel emissions-control technology took the gong for Best New Technology.

Analysis: With fuel economy and environmental impact so prominent in the mind's of today's car buyers, vehicles like the Camry Hybrid are sure to gain favour come awards night. Great to see two top technologies taking home prizes.
