Best cars to be displayed at Australian Motoring Festival

Australian Motoring Festival to put the best cars from each segment on display in Melbourne.

The top three cars across 15 different segments, as chosen by the Australian Automobile Association (AAA), will be on display as part of the Australian Motoring Festival to be held in Melbourne later this month.

Over 40 vehicles will feature in the lineup, including CarsGuide's own Car of the Year for 2014 - the Mercedes-Benz C200.

In determining each winner, the AAA (which comprises representatives from state motoring bodies the RACV, NRMA, RACQ, RAASA, RACWA, RACT and the AANT), took into account driving performance, design and value for money.

The 15 segments cover the wide gamut of car types from tiny tots to city runabouts and mid-size sedans, through to people movers and SUVs both great and small.

This show format differs from the more traditional motor show, where cars are normally displayed by each manufacturer individually, with the innovative format allowing consumers to weigh up segment rivals side-by-side.

There will still be room for the more manufacturer-centric displays however, with Ferrari showcasing their current range of cars along with older models going back 30 years.

The Australian Motoring Festival will be held at the Melbourne Showgrounds from March 26-29.
