The Mercury Cars Guide : November 14th 2009
4--- Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Saturday, November 14, 2009 car of the year 2009 Choice gives power to people VOTE WINNER: Last year's COTY People's Choice Award, the 2008 Ford Falcon XR6 FG G6E Turbo. EVERY Carsguide reader across Australia can have their own say on Car of the Year 2009, thanks to the People's Choice award. By voting for their favourite car from eight individual categories, 14 People's Choice winners will get a year's free fuel from Coles Express. The People's Choice vote has been expanded this year, with contenders in eight categories: best overall voted by men; best overall voted by women' best family car; best first car; best prestige car; best SUV; best performance car; and best commercial vehilce. The Carsguide team has already done the hard work, culling the field to five contenders in each category. Last year's People's Choice winner was the Ford Falcon G6E Turbo. For full details on the competition, and to cast your votes before the December 9 cutoff, head to carsguide.com.au/coty Panamera misses tilt at award THERE is no Porsche Pana- mera in the Car Of The Year '09 field. The first four-door Porsche sports car made the cut for the top-10 run-off and should have been a contender, except . . . Porsche has yet to land supplies of the Panamera and the two cars the company air- freighted to Australia for its lap-of-the-continent introduc- tory tour are past their test-by date and are already with their owners. So Porsche could and should have been a contender, but not. And that's how the Hyundai i30 CW got a late, late call-up from the bench for this year's judging.
