Currently in its inaugural year, the Middle East Car of the Year (MECOTY) integrates a complex yet transparent nomination and scoring methodology which is developed, tested and implemented by the most experienced ‘motoring minds’ of the industry.
“We are truly overwhelmed at the successful response that we have received in organizing the first ever edition of MECOTY,” said Saeed Al Marzouqi, Chairman, MECOTY. “There was always a need for car manufacturers to be recognized by an award body that will judge independently and be free of any commercial bias and end users also needed a common platform to read authentic reviews from professionals. Rest assured, MECOTY will continue to be a key platform for acknowledging automotive brands in this region.”
