Voted the 2015 Best of the Best by the Canadian Automotive Jury (CAJ), this month brings yet another win for the impressive Volkswagen Golf.

The competition was stiff but the Golf beat out both the Ford Mustang and Porsche Macan for first place at the Montreal auto show.

Volkswagen in Fiji is sold by Palas Autohaus.

Winners of the CAJ are chosen based on the following criteria: style, design (exterior and interior), ride and handling, performance, ergonomics, comfort, space, cargo capacity, fuel efficiency, market significance, and noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).

The CAJ is a non-profit organisation that is independently funded by 10 jurors, who are renowned automotive journalists and Volkswagen is honoured to accept the 2015 Best of the Best award.


2015 North American Car of the Year

Good things come in pairs. This year both the Golf and Golf GTI were recognised for setting new standards in their segments with the prestigious 2015 North American Car of the Year award.

The awards are now in their 22nd annual iteration and judged by 57 North American journalists and experts in the automotive industry.

The two Golf models have been acknowledged for their unmatched innovation, design, comfort, value, and available driver assistance.

“This award highlights our achievements and hard work in the past year, and we are confident that the Golf family will continue to pate the way for the brand in the year ahead” said Michael Horn, CEO, Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.


The awards programme

The Canadian Car of the Year Awards program is created by journalist members of AJAC to provide buyers with comparative information on new vehicles.

Starting in September of each year, hundreds of eligible new model vehicles are evaluated by AJAC’s expert journalists based on comparative “real world” testing and data.

This extensive evaluation recognises the best new vehicles across a range of categories.


2015 Motoring TV Award

February brought another win from Motoring TV for the all-new 2015 Golf as Motoring’s Car of the Year.

What makes this award so unique is that it judges the whole lineup, not just individual models.

Each model is put into a category where it competes against it’s class based on everything from style, ride/handling, interior execution, comfort, cargo, drivability, value, etc.
