Sorry Ford Mustang, Motor Trend Names Volkswagen Golf 2015 Car of the Year

Award

Takes top honors among a strong field of 23 new vehicles.

After nine days of testing, driving and deliberation, focusing on design, engineering, safety, value and performance, Motor Trend has selected the Volkswagen Golf as its 2015 Car of the Year. Out of an initial batch of 23 contending models, and ten finalists including the Ford Mustang, Lexus RC, Maserati Ghibli, Mercedes C-Class, BMW 2 Series and Audi A3, the seventh-gen VW Golf came out on top.

“VW floored our judges by reimagining the seventh generation Golf for nearly every need and want," said Motor Trend Editor-in-Chief Ed Loh. "From the value-laden Golf 1.8T and high-MPG Golf TDI to the legendary hot hatch GTI and all-electric e-Golf, there truly is a Golf for everyone."
