ACOTY 2024 – Overall Best Value

Four Round 1 winners vie for the title of Overall Best Value.

How Does ACOTY Define This Class?

Cars eligible for this class need to be priced at or under $200,000 with COE. This means only some Round 1 winning Cat A vehicles are eligible for this award.

Meet The Contenders

Toyota Sienta Hybrid

The Toyota Sienta Hybrid feels like more car for the money. Coupled with its excellent fuel economy and the fact that it can transport up to seven people at a go puts it in contention for this award.

BYD Dolphin

The BYD Dolphin Dolphin offers a very compelling value proposition here, and that the polished tech implementation within combined with how energy efficient it is makes it that much more of a contender for this title.

BYD Atto 3

Offering up great efficiency and how it feels the more complete package as an EV SUV, the BYD Atto 3 impressed the judging panel to make an appearance here for this award.

Peugeot 408

One cannot deny how well one will stand out and make a statement while driving the Peugeot 408. That it’s offered at a very compelling price-point puts it that much more in contention for this title.

So who won?

Four compelling Round 1 winners in their respective Cat A categories, but only one can claim this award.

Where the points tally in Round 1 was the final determinant of each category’s winner, here in Round 2, points are taken into consideration but are not the final arbiter of victory.

The BYD Atto 3 won as a result of offering the best value proposition of the four here. That it is comfortable, quite well appointed, spacious and has a techy interior puts it on top, despite not being the highest points scorer from Round 1.

Congratulations to the BYD Atto 3 for winning the AutoApp Car of the Year 2024 Overall Best Value!
