For the seventh year running, Torque – a monthly motoring title published by SPH Magazines – has partnered with The Straits Times (ST) to select the best new cars of the year, based on a robust voting system that sets the standard for automotive awards in Singapore.
The contenders were rated against their typical rivals based on nine criteria: performance, handling, ride, build quality, efficiency/economy, ergonomics, styling, value for money and the X factor.

Mr David Ting, Editor of Torque, said: “Thanks to continuous advancements in automotive design and vehicular technology, good cars are being introduced every year without fail. Some of them, however, go beyond “good”, by scoring great marks in the score sheets of the ST-Torque Awards and convincing the judges that they are the best cars of the year, in their respective categories.”


Straits Times Car of the Year 2017 – Lexus LC500
Best Compact SUV – Audi Q2
Best Executive Saloon – BMW 5 Series
Best Flagship Saloon – Porsche Panamera
Best Family Saloon – Renault Megane Sedan
Best Seven-seater MPV – Renault Grand Scenic
Best Seven-seater SUV – Mazda CX-9
Best Family Crossover – Peugeot 3008
Best Family SUV – Volkswagen Tiguan
Best Premium SUV – Volvo XC60
