Polo named "World Urban Car"

Go Back

29 March 2018

The World Car Awards concluded yesterday at the New York International Auto Show, with the Volkswagen Polo winning “World Urban Car 2018”.

2018 marks our sixth win at the World Car awards, previously winning “World Car of the Year” four times. With the Golf in 2013, Up! in 2012, Polo in 2010 and Golf VI in 2009.

“The whole team at Volkswagen is delighted to have won the 2018 World Urban Car award with the Polo,” said Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design. “With around 17 million units sold, the Polo is one of the most successful compact cars of all time and a pillar of the brand. And the sixth-generation, based on the MQB platform, is even sportier and more grown-up than its predecessors.”

The World Urban Car award was introduced last year because it's an award whose time has come. World Car vice-chairman, Mike Rutherford, commented, “Everyday cars in many - perhaps most - parts of the world will have to become smaller if road and parking space is to be found for them in increasingly packed towns and cities whose populations are swelling annually.” Last year’s inaugural World Urban Car winner was the BMW i3 (94Ah). The Polo was chosen from an initial entry list of eight cars from all over the world, then a shortlist of three finalists as announced in Geneva earlier this month: The Ford Fiesta, the Suzuki Swift and the Volkswagen Polo.
