In all processes, decisions are made to select, evaluate and progress. Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) methods have been used in several industries to make reliable decisions under multiple conflicting criteria. In the automotive industry, MCDM methods have predominantly been used in supplier selection problems. This study uses the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and the Preference Ranking Organisation Method for Enrichment Evaluation (PROMETHEE) methods for selecting the most suitable automobile for consumers. AHP was used to attribute weights for each criterion. Three subject matter experts were involved in the study to evaluate the importance of each criterion. PROMETHEE was used to rank seven alternatives under nine criteria. This study provides an insight into the use of MCDM methods in the selection of an automobile.
