Volkswagen’s Polo and Touareg win again at Australia’s Best Car Awards

Volkswagen has received two industry accolades at this year’s Australia’s Best Car Awards event earlier today. The frugal Volkswagen Polo 66TDI was once again named Best Light Car over $20,000 for a third consecutive year, while the well-appointed Volkswagen Touareg V6TDI defended its 2011 title as Best Luxury SUV Over $60,000.

Volkswagen Group Australia’s Managing Director, Anke Koeckler, was delighted to accept the awards for these two vehicles.

“This is the third time the Polo 66TDI has won its category and the fifth time a diesel Polo has collected an Australia’s Best Cars award,” said Ms Koeckler.

“Our Touareg also showed why it is such a remarkably capable vehicle, with back-to-back titles in the Best Luxury SUV category. “

Since its launch in May 2010, the Polo 66TDI has outclassed its rivals in a hotly-contested segment with remarkable fuel efficiency and class-leading build quality. The Australia’s Best Car judges once again lauded the Polo 66TDI for its third win.

“On the road the Polo continues to be a standout...On winding sections of road, the Polo is nimble and fleet footed.”

“From the moment you step in, and hear the reassuring thud when you close the door you know you’re in a special vehicle.”

Volkswagen’s Touareg emerged as Best Luxury SUV Over $60,000 among more expensive competition. The Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI was praised by Australia’s Best Cars judges for its outstanding fuel-efficiency and value for money.

“The Volkswagen Touareg has done it again and with a country mile between it and the rest of the field”, commented one of the judges.

Australia’s Best Car Awards is now in its twelfth year, a co-operation between Australia’s Motoring Clubs. The Australia’s Best Car Awards represents the nation’s most comprehensive and independent consumer-focused vehicle testing and award program.
