Summary form only given. This paper deals with the utilization of the modern evaluation tool in the field of the automotive market. Evaluation methods are often needed to optimize manufacturing in sense of sales or to estimate appropriate storage times. There can be found several examples from the literature concerning this kind of problematization. Methods themselves may often feel quite complicated. Fortunately, there are available certain software tools that contain the particular instruments for evaluating purposes. A widely used method is the analytic hierarchy process (AHP), that is included as a software tool in some books dealing with the decision making. The method used in this paper has the close relationship to the AHP. Presenting all phases of this kind of process should give researches an idea of quite simple principles of the basic priority theory. This article aims to evaluate which cars succesfully fulfil the combination of performance, economy, ecology and safety
