The awards keep coming for Volkswagen! The latest to join the parade of winners is the Golf R which was named the 'Best Performance Car' by Honest John.
The fiercely quick Golf R, a range-topper, the halo of the extensive Golf line-up, beat some tough competitors to take the top spot in the hotly contested Performance category. Dan Powell, Managing Editor of HonestJohn.co.uk, said "The inconspicuous but blisteringly fast Volkswagen Golf R leaves its rivals in its dust when it comes to popularity at HonestJohn.co.uk
"Praised for its sophisticated four-wheel drive system and potent turbocharged petrol engine, the Golf R is a car that clearly doesn't need a lairy body kit to underline its quality. Fast, surefooted and wonderfully refined, the Volkswagen Golf R is a triumph of engineering and a worthy winner of our Performance Car of the Year award"
Prior to its win the Golf's smaller sibling, the new Polo, has in recent weeks been taking the awards spotlight with both a 'World Urban Car' title in the prestigious World Car of the Year awards, and a 'Safe Car of the Year' prize at the inaugural FirsCart Awards here in the UK.
