Cars.com recently announced their Best of 2018 Awards, and two Volkswagen models took home honors. The all-new 2018 VW Atlas SUV won the top spot for Best of 2018, while the high-performance 2018 VW Golf GTI won the Most Fun-to-Drive Car of the Year Award.
“Big is back, and Volkswagen has brought to market its biggest SUV ever, the 2018 Atlas. With three rows of seating that are incredibly flexible, it’s possible to fit seven full-sized adults in the Atlas with no complaints about comfort from anyone. There are no trade-offs with the GTI. Volkswagen’s hatchback excels for its blend of performance, comfort and refinement.” – Jennifer Newman, Cars.com’s Editor-in-Chief.

The Golf GTI is the high-performance version of the iconic VW Golf. First debuting in the U.S. in 1983, the Golf GTI boasts a pleasing combination of playful performance, style and refinement.
