The Canadian Automotive Jury (CAJ) has announced its fourth annual Best of the Best finalists.
The 2013 finalists reflect a wide variety of vehicles available to Canadian new-car buyers, including sedans, coupes, hatchbacks, SUVs, crossovers and sports and performance cars.
The CAJ’s annual Best of the Best Awards are unique in Canada. The not-for-profit organization is independently funded by its jurors, 11 senior automotive journalists, and its secretary, a senior automotive editor, who account for the vast majority of automotive industry coverage in Canada.
Also noteworthy is that the CAJ’s Best of the Best finalists don’t exclusively focus on a specific model within a family of vehicles or only ‘all-new’ models, and they include the reigning 2012 Canadian Automotive Jury Best of the Best winner, the Audi A7, which is an automatic finalist.
For 2013, four European, four Japanese, three domestic and one Korean model make up the Best of the Best finalists.
The 2013 Best of the Best winner will be announced in January during the Montreal Auto Show.
The 2013 CAJ Best of the Best finalists are, in alphabetical order:
Audi A7 (2012 Best of the Best winner)
Honda Accord sedan/coupe
Volkswagen Golf R.
