World Car of the Year finalists announced image

The judges of the World Car of the Year award have recently announced the finalists after the total entries have been narrowed down to just four cars.

After the brand new Volkswagen Golf 7 has been named the 2013 European Car of the Year, during the Geneva Motor Show just last week, time has come for another prestigious award to search for a winner. We’re talking about the World Car of the Year, whose judges have just cut down the total of 42 entries to just four vehicles.

“In the voting for this year’s WCOTY award, we saw a very closely fought race which resulted in not three, but four finalists!”, said Peter Lyon, the World Car Awards co-chair.

According to the judges who have the difficult job of announcing a winner soon, the four finalists of the World Car of the Year award are the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, the Subaru BRZ / Toyota GT 86 / Scion FR-S, the Porsche Boxster / Cayman and the European winner, the Volkswagen Golf 7. In order for a car to qualify for this award, it must be on sale on two continents between January 1, 2013, and May 30, 2013. The finalists were voted by 66 journalists from 23 countries. The overall winners will be presented during the 2013 New York Auto Show, later on this month.
