Seven best cars launched in 2013 were chosen from 49 models by jury consisting of motor journalists, designers, celebrities, technicians and race drivers. And it is no wonder that most of winners represent Germany.

    The winner in Small Class, probably, the most important for Europe, became Volkswagen Golf. The actual version of this legendary hatchback has already been declared the best European and world's car in 2013.

    Audi A3 Saloon took the first place in the middle class category. This model has won its first The Golden Steering Wheel award when it was first produced in 1996.

    The best luxury car is declared the new generation of Mercedes-Benz S-Class. It is noteworthy that it managed to leave behind one of the most unexpected this year's contenders: Tesla Model S.

    BMW X5 new generation made its debut in 2013 and ranked first in the SUV class.

    Jaguar F-Type tops Coupe/Cabriolet class – and this is one of two winners not representing Germany. There is only cabriolet version of this car at the market yet but F-Type is going to become coupe in the near future as well.

    Citroen C4 Picasso is considered to be the winner of MPV class. This car is fitted with modern electronics and provides sufficient for this class reserve power. KIA Carens finished second in this class being the only one South Korea representative at this award.

    And finally, BMW i3 electric car is awarded with a special prize for the best Green Car of the year. This car is not common for BMW however it became more than popular this year.
