2017 VW Golf Family Car and Driver “10Best” List
Four members of the 2017 Volkswagen Golf family recently earned one of the most coveted automotive awards — Car and Driver magazine’s “10Best” list. This marks the eleventh consecutive “10Best” award for the Golf family and includes the Golf, Golf Alltrack, Golf GTI and Golf R.
Car and Driver “10Best” List Award Process and VW Golf Family
The VW Golf models competed against 60 vehicles for the “10Best” list. All production vehicles for sale in the current calendar year are considered, with the following restrictions: The vehicle must be on sale by January. It must be priced below 2.5 times the average car price for that year. The manufacturer must provide a vehicle for testing. And only substantially changed vehicles and the past year’s “10Best” winners are nominated.
Cars are judged on value, performance and the ability to satisfy the comprehensive driving needs of the consumer. In the case of the Golf models, they were praised by Car and Driver for their exceptional versatility, dynamics and value.
“We are honored that Car and Driver has named the Volkswagen Golf models to its 2017 ‘10Best’ list. Earning this award for the eleventh consecutive year validates the consistency of the Golf family in delivering unmatched quality and performance at a competitive price point.” – Hinrich J. Woebcken, President and CEO, Volkswagen Group of America
