The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Corvette Stingray have been named Auto 123’s Car of the Year in their respective categories. The Tahoe received the “2015 Full-Size Utility of the Year” award, with the Corvette being recognized as the “2015 Convertible of the Year.”
The Auto123.com awards are chosen by a judging panel of automotive journalists, who rate cars in 20 different vehicle segments. This year marked the sixth ever Auto 123 Awards, which are presented to winning automakers in Toronto, Ontario.
“We’re honoured to have two of our iconic Chevrolet nameplates recognized by the Auto123.com team,” said brand director for Chevrolet in Canada, Bob McClelland. “Both the Chevrolet Tahoe and Corvette Stingray redefine their segments, providing the world class design, performance and technology our customers have come to expect from Chevrolet.”
The Tahoe was up against several entries in the Full Size Utility segment and edged out the two other finalists, the Ford Flex and GMC Yukon, to win the award. The Corvette also beat out two strong finalists, the Jaguar F-Type and the all-new 2015 Mazda Miata. Several other GM products were listed as finalists in Auto 123’s study, including the Chevrolet Impala for Full-Size Car of the Year, the Chevrolet Silverado for Full-Size Pickup of the Year and the Cadillac ATS for Luxury Compact Car of the Year.
