The recognized American firm Motor Trend, revealed recently and after many tests, which is best car of the year 2013 for them, the Cadillac CTS 2014.
For including a vehicle as a participant of car of the year, Motor Trend first considers if the unit is completely brand new or significantly revamped to increase its value.
Secondly, price is taken into account, originally the maximum was $100,000 but with the inflation it has risen up to $120,000.
From this perspective 22 candidates were chosen to compete for the prize. Among these were vehicles relatively simple as the Kia Forte, Mazda 3 to luxurious and sports like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class or the SRT Viper.
