The best 2013 cars all, for one reason or another, earned a great deal of praise during the years as the best to drive, own and enjoy. From the sporty to the roomy, all of these 2013 best cars are at the top of their respective classes and were voted best of the year.

While the absolute best car of 2013 is debatable, for the first time in the 64-year history of the award, Motor Trend selected an electric car as the best of the year. The somewhat controversial and revolutionary Tesla Model 6 earned the nod with praise for style, performance, efficiency, safety, value and a number of other factors. Not to mention, this beauty can nail 60 mph in four seconds and travel 265 miles on a single charge.

But for the rest of us, there are dozens of other cars which earned top marks in 2013. Consumer Reports, for instance, picked the Audi A6 as their top luxury car of 2013 as they did with the Honda Odyssey for the best minivan category. Car and Driver also liked the A6 but added the Ford Focus, Honda Fit and Porsche Boxster, among others, to their best of 2013 list.

These cars might be the best of 2013 but which is best for you? That depends on what you're looking for. Whatever your criteria, there is plenty of great options from which to choose among these best cars of 2013. Want more from 2013?
