Each year, automakers introduce or redesign roughly 70 cars, and our experts spend hours upon hours driving them, putting them through their paces. We're looking above all else for quality, innovation and value for the consumer. From those cars, we pick our nominees for Cars.com's top honor, our Best of 2013 award. Check out our nominees, along with why we chose them, and see why this year's picks are already unique.
