The Automotive Journalists Association of Canada gets together every year to determine the best of the newest crop of vehicles. After sorting through 150 cars in 11 categories, the AJAC has chosen its "Best Ofs" for 2011.

U.S. manufacturers did quite well throughout the competition, taking home five of the 11 awards. Volkswagen also did well, earning awards in two categories. Last year a VW even took top honors, with the GTI winning Car of the Year. This year's COTY title has yet to be handed out, but based on the overall category winners, our money is on an American automaker earning the prize.

Hop the jump to see the list of categories, along with the respective winners.
