Volkswagen claims double honours at What Car? Awards 2010
The new Polo and Golf have claimed a brace of titles for Volkswagen at this year’s prestigious What Car? Awards.
At the annual ceremony, the new Polo kicked off a successful evening for Volkswagen claiming the hotly contested Supermini title. Presenting the Polo’s award, What Car? Group Editor, Steve Fowler commented: ‘We first got behind the wheel of the new Polo at the Geneva Motor Show and we were immediately blown away by its airiness and the quality of its interior. The Polo’s fine drive and a cabin that is effectively a Golf in miniature had us convinced.’
Volkswagen’s second major award of the evening went to the Golf hatchback which successfully defended the honour of Small Family Car for the fourth year running. Steve Fowler commented: ‘The Golf is a great all-rounder with a record-breaking star rating tally that has yet to be beaten and, to be honest, we’re not sure it ever will be. With a cosseting ride that shames that of many luxury cars, it’s all the car that most people will ever need.’
Completing a strong showing for Volkswagen at this year’s awards, the Scirocco was also highly commended. The 1.4-litre 160 PS model was named as the Best Buy coupé in the under £25,000 category.
