Volkswagen has received a duo of honours at the Auto Express New Car Awards 2012, with victories for the Golf Cabriolet and the Amarok pick-up.
The awards, which were presented at a ceremony in London, recognise the best cars on sale today, as judged by the editorial team at Auto Express. Both new and existing models are eligible and the best vehicles in every class are selected for an award.
The Golf Cabriolet was named ‘Best Convertible’, while the Amarok won the inaugural award for ‘Best Pick-up’.
‘Volkswagen’s latest Golf Cabriolet is the best yet,’ said Auto Express editor-in-chief Steve Fowler. ‘It has all the attributes that make every other Golf so brilliant, but with a huge dollop of sex appeal. It has its sensible side, but it sure knows how to let its hair down.’
