The Automotive Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) announced its annual list of nine ‘Best New’ category winners and Volkswagen received two class wins in the 2016 competition:

• Golf Sportwagon – 2016 Family Car of the Year
• Golf R – 2016 Sports/Performance Car of the Year under $50K

The category winners represent voting results by the largest group of Canada’s best-known automotive journalists, who gathered this past October in Clarington, Ontario for a four-day test-drive evaluation of brand-new or significantly changed models.

The winning vehicles across all nine categories will now compete for the overall Canadian Car of the Year and Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year honours, which will be announced at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto in February 2016.

In the midst of challenging times, these important wins help to reaffirm for us all the significant underlying quality of the Volkswagen product and the high opinions held by some of the most discerning experts in the Canadian industry.
