The Car of the Year is also the most successful European car ever.
Since production began in 1974 an average of 2,000 people have bought a new Golf every single day. Do the math and that's 30 million Golfs. Taking the title as the 30 millionth to roll off the VW assembly line in Wolfsburg was a Golf TDi BlueMotion – the most fuel efficient in the model's history. The best-selling vehicle of all time is the Toyota Corolla with more than 39 million sales over nine generation since 1966, but the Golf is unquestionably the most successful European car of all time.
