MITSUBISHI MOTORS CORPORATION (MMC) has announced that eK X (pronounced eK cross) and eK Wagon Kei cars have been named "RJC Car of the Year 2020" at the Automotive Researchers' & Journalists' Conference of Japan (RJC) after the final judging on November 12.
RJC praised the vehicles' comfortable cabin and interior capacity, as well as driving performance and efficiency, which have been improved by newly-developed platform and powertrain. In addition, it recognised that eK X and eK Wagon reduce drivers' stress and have expanded Kei cars' capabilities with the introduction of MI-PILOT (Mitsubishi Intelligent-PILOT), MMC's advanced safety system which includes segment-leading driver aids such as adaptive cruise control and forward collision mitigation.
Following Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross in 2019 and i Kei Car in 2007, this is the third time that MMC has won the RJC Car of the Year.
The 29th RJC Car of the Year was selected from the new Japanese models launched in the domestic market during the period from November 1, 2018 to October 31, 2019. The selection committee chose six best models on November 1 before voting on November 12 to decide the overall winner.
