According to a panel of 66 automotive journalists representing 23 countries around the world, this year's 2013 World Car of the Year is the next-generation Volkswagen Golf, which goes on sale in the United States early next year as a 2015 model. This is the second time in two years that Volkswagen has received the World Car of the Year award, the laurel also bestowed on the Volkswagen Up!, a mini-compact not sold in the United States.

The redesigned Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman, both mid-engine sports cars, received the 2013 World Performance Car of the Year award; the Tesla Model S electric luxury performance sedan took home the 2013 World Green Car award; and the Jaguar F-Type roadster won the 2013 World Car Design award.
