Winning the class for the Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year is the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

The awards are decided by members of the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada, after their annual Test Fest in which members from across the country drive and compare each new vehicle in each class.

The winner of the North American Car of the Year, announced early last month at the Detroit Auto Show was the Cadillac ATS, with the winner of the World Car of the Year set to be revealed at the New York Auto Show in late March.

    Much too early to give Honda awards given how much Honda went out of their way to destroy their designs and customer loyalty.
