Australia’s Best Cars 2013 is a celebration of the very best cars on the market. 

2013 saw the introduction of a new category in Australia’s Best Cars: the 4x4 dual cab utes. This category is the third largest seller in Australia, more popular than the SUV categories, having grown 25 percent since 2011. They now outsell all of the popular SUV categories. 

There was close competition across the 15 categories in the 2013 awards. Value for money was outstanding, and the 12 ABC judges found it hard to pick winners when they tested the top three cars in each category at the purpose-built Australian Automotive Research Centre in Anglesea, Victoria. 

But they eventually settled on the 15 winners. See which cars won, and why, below.
