Volkswagen has won two of the prestigious What Car - Car of the Year 2016 Awards.
The manufacturer has been voted best Electric Car of the Year for the Volkswagen Passat Estate GTE, and the best MPV went to the Volkswagen Touran 1.6 TDI 110 Bluemotion Tech SE.
The What Car Awards, now in their 39th year, hail the very best cars on sale in Britain and Ireland, with the title’s team of expert testers assessing all cars to ascertain which are the finest money can buy. Each car underwent a raft of 16 core test criteria, each with numerous layers of detailed investigations.
Jim Holder, editorial director of What Car, said: “Our guiding principle is to recommend the best cars on sale today. We have tested all cars with our unrivalled rigour and scrutiny on a level playing field with all of their rivals. The VW Group still builds cars that rank among the very best on the road and, tested against our criteria covering all of the rational reasons that consumers choose one car over another, the results are clear to see.”
Volkswagen Ireland has extended until the end of January its offer on R-Line exterior packs as well as extensions to upgrades to Edition-R models. Volkswagen’s R-Line exterior kits offer stylish and sporty upgrades to the Polo, Golf, Golf estate, Beetle, Scirocco, Passat, CC and Touareg models, and include alloy wheel upgrades (excluding Passat ) and specific R-Line body kits.
