Volkswagen's new Golf 7 was the big winner as a number of "world car awards" were announced at the recent New York auto show.

The Golf was named "world car of the year 2013" with other top awards going to the Jaguar F-Type as the "world car design of the year" while the "world performance car of the year" went to the Porsche Boxster and Cayman with the Tesla S named the "green car of the year".

The World Car Awards (WCA) are presented annually in four categories - car design, green car, performance car and car of the year. Winners are determined by an international panel of 66 automotive journalists from 23 countries. Jurors are appointed by the World Car Steering Committee based on automotive expertise, experience, credibility and influence.
 
Golf's award was the 17th it had received worldwide since being launched in November 2012.
