Volkswagen Golf Models Earn More Praise as Car and Driver “10Best”

Volkswagen recently announced that its efficient and versatile range of Volkswagen Golf models has once again been named to the Car and Driver “10Best” list. Recognized VW Golf models include the Volkswagen Golf, e-Golf, Golf GTI, Golf Alltrack, Golf R, and Golf SportWagen. This marks the vehicle’s twelfth consecutive victory in earning a spot on this highly coveted list. It also beat out 65 other contenders.

Each year, this list is generated by Car and Driver editors, who pick their favorite new vehicles. The judgments are made based on a variety of factors, including performance, value, and, as Volkswagen puts it, “the ability to satisfy the comprehensive driving needs of the consumer.”

So what cars were considered for this honor? They had to be on sale by January of the current calendar year. They also had to be priced 2.5 times below the average car price for that year. On top of that, automakers must also offer a vehicle to Car and Driver for testing. Car and Driver will only consider significantly updated vehicles or vehicles that made it onto the list the previous year.

Volkswagen Honored

“We are honored that Car and Driver has named the Volkswagen Golf models to its 2018 ‘10Best’ list,” remarked Hinrich J. Woebcken, president and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. “Earning this award for the twelfth consecutive year validates the consistency of the Golf family in delivering unmatched quality and performance at a competitive price point.”
