2008 Detroit Auto Show: Car, Truck of the Year
Malibu, CX-9 win North American honors
Ultimately, the car and truck of the year is the one you choose. That's how it works: if you buy more Camrys than Accords, by golly no group of experts can tell you that the Accord is better for you than the Camry. But they can tell you which one drives better, which one looks better and which car - or truck - has more comfortable seats.This year, the North American Car and Truck of Year turned out to be the Mazda CX-9 and the Chevrolet Malibu, two well-designed and all-new cars sure to please many a car buyer. That is, after all, the point, right?
