The criteria that allows us to determine who will be 4x4 Australia's best 4x4 Of The Year 2017.
VALUE FOR MONEY
What you get for what you pay. A particular vehicle may be expensive, but if it delivers on what it promises it can be good value. Conversely, a less expensive vehicle may not deliver at all and therefore be poor value.
BREAKING NEW GROUND
Each vehicle is rated for the new technology or features it has and on the effectiveness of that technology or those features.
Each vehicle is rated on how well it is designed and built.
Each vehicle is rated on how practical it is in the bush and in the outback, and how readily it can be made more bush and outback practical via aftermarket enhancement.
DOING THE JOB
The vehicle is rated on how well it does the job it has been designed for. If it’s a ute, how good is it at being a ute? And if it’s a family wagon, how good is it at being a family wagon?
