The Green Car Journal finally made up its mind about the top 5 cars that will be running for the 2014 Green Car of the Year Award. This time the BMW 328d was picked out of the Germans' garage to compete against names such as Audi A6 TDI, Honda Accord, Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla.

Alongside the nomination for this coveted award, the 328d also already won the magazine's "Green Car Product of Excellence" title and as honored as one of the "Top 5 Green Cars of 2014".

The award will be presented at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show by the Magazine's officials, continuing a tradition started back in 2005.

"The diversity of this field of finalists illustrates not only that 'green' has gone mainstream, but also that there is no single approach to achieving ever higher levels of fuel efficiency and environmental performance," says Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal.

"There's something for everyone in this year's field of finalists, including clean diesel, high efficiency gasoline, and hybrid/plug-in hybrid power featured in mainstream, sporty, and executive models," he added.

The jury includes auto enthusiasts, leaders of the nation's major environmental organizations (including Jean-Michel Cousteau, president of Ocean Futures Society, Matt Petersen, board member of Global Green USA and others) and Jay Leno.
