Toyota and General Motors are the biggest winners of Vincentric’s 10th annual list of Canada’s Best Fleet Values. Each of these manufacturers has won five of the 35 titles awarded, we learned in a press release published on July 15 by this US company of analysts.
Toyota won in three of the six categories, namely popular cars, popular public service cars and minivans. For its part, GM stood out above all else in the pickup truck category with three out of five titles.
In addition, Ford, Stellantis, Volvo and Hyundai-Kia all follow previous Aequo winners with four titles each.
Other award-winning manufacturers in this year’s list are: Audi (1), BMW (1), Mercedes-Benz (3), Nissan (2) and Subaru (2).
Repeat winners and big absentees
The 10th edition of this annual Vincentric Awards list highlights award-winning models on a recurring basis. This is the case for the base BMW i3, which took its sixth title in a row. For their part, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 Passenger and 3500 Cargo took its seventh and fifth titles, respectively, while the Nissan NV200 S pickup truck took its sixth title. Finally, the Subaru Outback and Kia Niro each took their fifth titles in a row.
There are also two major absentees from this year’s list. 1st place Cadillac won four titles last year. This year, the GM premium brand received nothing. Second, the Ford F-Series trucks stand out by their absence from the 2021 list. Last year, this popular car won three out of four titles in the Pickup Truck category.
