The Volkswagen Golf recently picked up the ‘best car for new drivers’ at the Auto Trader new car awards 2019. Now the Volkswagen Golf has another award to add to its vast collection of awards over the years. The 2019 Autocar awards have bestowed the title of ‘Used Car Hero’ at its recent awards ceremony.

The ‘Used Car Hero’ award is designed to celebrate the nearly new cars and give recognition to used cars that are currently still on sale. Autocar recognised the diverse model range of the Golf that includes the eco-credentials of the e-Golf and the economic running costs of petrol and diesel engine variants.  During judging, Autocar regularly selected the nearly-new seventh generation versions of the Golf including the e-Golf and other variations.

Barney Francis, National Used Car Manager at Volkswagen UK said:

“Over the last 45 years, the Volkswagen Golf has built a loyal following. It has long been a favourite of car buyers in the UK and consistently ranks very highly as one of the UK’s best-selling new cars.

“Buyers have even more choice on the used market with the Golf, which is also one of the UK’s most searched for used cars. From economical diesel to high-performance GTI and R models, with electrified powertrains like the all-electric e-Golf in-between, the Golf is truly the People’s Car, and so we are thrilled that Autocar has recognised its position with the ‘Used Car Hero’ award.”
