Your friends here at Pugi Volkswagen are here with some good news – two of our favorite models just received some much-deserved recognition! Today we’re here to answer your questions about these latest awards!
What cars won?
Both the Chicago Volkswagen Golf TDI Clean Diesel and the Volkswagen GTI were named “All-Star’s” on AUTOMOBILE Magazine’s annual list. This is a huge honor and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
What’s an All-Star?
Each year, the editors at AUTOMOBILE Magazine choose ten outstanding cars that they deem “All-Stars.” Jean Jennings, President and Editor-in-Chief of AUTOMOBILE Magazine explains:
“While the lineup of this year’s All-Stars covers nearly every vehicle segment, each one shares one major characteristic. … Regardless of the purpose or cost, every All-Star is fun to drive.”
Why did these two win?
David Zenlea, assistant editor at AUTOMOBILE Magazine, explains:
“The Golf TDI Clean Diesel and GTI are cars in a class of their own. … They’re German enthusiasts’ cars that just happen to be compact and fuel-efficient.”
What do Volkswagen officials have to say?
Tim Mahoney, Volkswagen executive vice president and chief product and marketing officer, speaks for all of us by saying:
“We’re thrilled to be honored by AUTOMOBILE Magazine. … Volkswagen is committed to making German engineering accessible to the American consumer, and being a part of the All-Star list for yet another year underscores that we’re succeeding in our efforts.”
