Volkswagen has collected three highly valued trophies at the Australia’s Best Car Awards. Earlier today the Golf 90TSI Comfortline collected the award for small cars priced under $35,000 while the Golf GTI took out the ‘Best Sports Car under $50,000’ for the second year in a row. The formidable Touareg also once again collected a trophy, making it four in a row for our premium SUV.

Volkswagen Group Australia’s Managing Director, John White, was extremely pleased with the company’s success: “It is without doubt a great honour to receive these accolades for our multi-award-winning products.”

“The Golf has been such a great success both here and around the world, we only wish we could secure more vehicles to meet the demand.

“Our Touareg continues to deliver year after year and we are very pleased the judges agree that it remains the benchmark in its class,” said Mr White.

Reflecting on the Golf’s win, the Australia’s Best Cars judges lauded the Golf’s impressive package, stating: “Almost sports-like in performance, Volkswagen’s attention to detail gives the Golf 90TSI Comfortline a number of firsts.”

The judges also hailed the Golf GTI as “the quintessential all-rounder”, adding: “One of the nicest aspects of this sports car is that it has no unwanted traits; it rides well on all surfaces and is enjoyable for day-to-day commuting and touring.”

For a fourth year in a row, Australia’s Best Cars picked Volkswagen’s Touareg over its competition, saying:  “Having been successful in Australia’s Best Cars in 2013, the Volkswagen Touareg was again in a strong position this year, but it also faced some new challenges.

“…the winning vehicle had to combine superlative luxury with excellent abilities both on and off road, and all for a reasonable price. The Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI did just that.”

Australia’s Best Car Awards places the country’s most popular vehicles through rigorous testing and analysis to determine the best vehicles on offer for consumers. It is the nation’s most comprehensive and independent customer-focused vehicle testing and awards program.
