New Volkswagen Golf is Europe's Car of the Year 2013

The new Volkswagen Golf has been named Europe’s “Car of the Year 2013” during a special event in Geneva. The panel of judges, consisting of 58 automotive journalists from 22 countries were very impressed with the new Golf as it had a total score of 414 in the final vote – the closest rival was Toyota GT 86 / Subaru BRZ (202 points), followed by Volvo V40 (189 points).

Two Volkswagen models have received the coveted prize before: the Golf in 1992 and the Polo in 2010. The Golf is now the second model together with Renault Clio to receive the European Car of the Year twice.

Since its debut in 1974, nearly 30 million Golf vehicles have been produced and more than 150,000 new seventh-generation Golf vehicles have already been ordered throughout Europe.
