2020 Sunday Times Motor Awards: Volkswagen Wins Three Awards
Volkswagen receives three fantastic awards from the Sunday Times 2020 Motor Awards, showing that Volkswagen are still one of the most successful car brands in the world.
- Value Car of the Year
- Family Car of the Year
- Manufacturer of the Year
Value Car of the Year - Winner: Volkswagen Up! GTI
The Volkswagen Up! GTI is a pocket rocket that is not only incredibly affordable but extremely fun to drive and packed full of tech goodies. The Up! GTI comes in at just £16,560 for a basic version (which is all you need with this plucky car), which is insane given its 113bhp engine which will sprint to 60mph in just under 9 seconds. The car might not be setting any speed records but the fantastic handling and keen performance more than makeup for the power figures.
The Volkswagen Up! GTI won the award over the following shortlisted cars:
- Fiat Panda Hybrid
- Hyundai i10
- Ssangyong Tivoli
- Dacia Duster
Family Car of the Year - Winner: Volkswagen Golf 8 Hatchback
The recently released Volkswagen Golf 8 Hatchback has set the benchmark for affordable family cars that just ooze quality. The Golf 8 is versatile, spacious, practical, economical and retains that classic Golf silhouette whilst evolving with sharper, sleeker looks. With its plethora of engine sizes to suit every type of driver and amazing high tech interior, the Golf 8 Hatchback is one of the best family cars on the market right now.
The Volkswagen Golf 8 Hatchback won the award over the following shortlisted cars:
Manufacturer of the Year - Winner: Volkswagen
