Benefits of the Year 2019 Argus: five vehicles in the race


the argus will be presenting his 26th Utility of the Year Award on December 11, 2018, during the evening dedicated to his VP Trophies. This year, five competitors are in the race.

The election held this year at the Linas-Montlhéry Autodrome in the Paris region is still ongoing. Twelve jurors (journalists, landlords, manufacturers) classify the vehicles (from 1st to 5th place) into seven criteria: useful qualities, services, environmental qualities, active and passive safety, ergonomic life on board, prison costs, crowds. These ranks are then converted into points (5 for 1st, 4 for 2nd, etc.). The benefit of the year is the vehicle that scores the most points out of the seven criteria.

Keep in mind that the jury does not have to compare vehicles directly (we can not compare a pickup truck to a big 3.5 ton truck …) but to assess the interest of each vehicle in terms of what it brings back to his segment and / or to the manufacturers.

Here are the competitors for Utility of the Year 2019 the argus (in alphabetical order of their brand).
