NST’s Life and Times has put a twist on the whole car of the year award thing, with the Life & Times-Shell Malaysia Readers choice contest. The contest had been on-going for quite some time – basically readers send in their choices for the car of the year with their opinion on why the car should be car of the year, and the results will be tabulated.

For one, it was a chance to win free petrol sponsored by Shell Malaysia, and secondly, it was a chance to see if the general public agree with our local motoring journalists: the 2006 Honda Civic had won Autocar Asean’s Car of The Year as well as NST-CBT’s Malaysian Car of The Year.

The top three results…

Honda Civic: 45%
Toyota Camry: 20%
Proton Satria Neo: 8%
