As the second-best-selling car in the UK for 2018, the Golf received praise from Auto Express, The Sunday Times, and Diesel Car & Eco Car. Winning “Compact Car of the Year,” “Commuter Car of the Year,” and “Best plug-in hybrid car” (respectively), the Golf was one of several awarded models from Volkswagen. Additional charts topped include Fleet World’s “Best Lower Medium Car.”

Leading the way for electric cars

Volkswagen is actively participating in the EV movement / shift away from high-emissions cars.
