Volkswagen have scooped three seperate prizes at the annual What Car? Awards across a wide range of categories

The Polo retains its "Best Small Car" title for the second year in a row

This is the second year that the Volkswagen Polo has claimed an overall victory beating others in its category, maintaining its position at the top of the ever-more competitive supermini segment. Judges applauded every part of the Polo, including its quiet engine, comfortable interior and overall value as a whole. 

"The Volkswagen Polo has an interior that's easier to get along with than other small car rivals, along with its quieter engine. When it comes to comfort, the Polo is the small car in which you'll feel freshest after covering lots of motorway miles...it really is the complete package." said Steve Huntington, Editor of What Car?

The T-Roc R is presented with its first award of "Best Sports SUV under £40,000"

The newest member of the Volkswagen SUV family has been presented its first award, just weeks after its arrival! The flagship of the Volkswagen T-Roc range collected its price point award as an extremely strong start for Volkswagen's first compact performance SUV.

What Car? Editor Huntingford said "The T-Roc R is more reminiscent of a hot hatch than an SUV in the way it handles, despite the elevated driving position that SUV drivers prize...at the same time it's spacious enough to serve as family transport." 

The Touran continues its run of success of price point as "Best MPV between £22,000 - £30,000"

The Volkswagen Touran has received an award in the MPV category for the fifth consecutive year by the What Car? judges. "The Touran offers a plush interior, along with an enormous boot and seven seats with plenty of flexibility. Three independently sliding and reclining chairs in the rear means no-one should have any trouble getting comfortable, and even the third row is roomy enough for adults. It's even good to drive, thanks to precise steering and tidy handling" said Huntingford.

Geraldine Ingham, Head of Marketing at Volkswagen UK said: "After such a successful 2019, it's encouraging that 2020 is continuing the same momentum with this fantastic award for our top-selling Polo. 

"This is the year of the Golf 8, the enhanced up!, e-up! and up! GTI, the T-Roc Cabriolet and many more. This year also sees the debut of the ID.3...they will be the electric 'People's Cars' through and through."
