The program is sponsored by AAA and the Active Network. Twenty manufacturers participated in the 2010 competition, entering vehicles in seven categories.

Athletes on hand included members of Team Aquaphor, Active Network Media and the San Diego Triathlon Club, participating in sports that ranged from surfing and sprint triathlons to ultra-distance running. The athletes’ votes weighed 50 percent in the final tally, with jury panel votes comprising the remaining 50 percent.

The designers dealt with ergonomic challenges in the case of both vehicles. The standard safety available also was impressive because that’s tremendously important to people with active lifestyles.” – Nina Russin, Active Lifestyle Vehicle Jury Coordinator “Many Fusion customers have a very active lifestyle, often including outdoor athletic activities. They want a vehicle that supports their ‘On the go’ spirit and the Fusion delivers.” – Chantel Lenard, Group Marketing Manager, Global Small and Midsize Cars “MKT is versatile enough for any athlete. With plenty of cargo space for gear and three rows of seating for teammates or friends, we’ve got any sport covered. It also has the functionality of an SUV and the technology of a luxury sedan to get you where you need to go in comfort and style.” – Kate Pearce, Lincoln MKT Marketing Manager
