VW Golf Named 2015 North American Car of the Year

Volkswagen is known for its superior German engineering, which has never been as obvious as it is now. The German carmaker recently announced that the Golf and Golf GTI were recognized as the 2015 North American Car of the Year, showcasing Volkwagen’s performance prowess.

“Volkswagen is thrilled to start 2015 with the Golf and Golf GTI taking home the incredible North American Car of the Year title,” said Michael Horn, CEO for Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. “This award highlights our achievements and hard work in the past year, and we are confident that the Golf family will continue to pave the way for the brand in the year ahead.”

The cars beat out two other finalists, showcasing a superior design and available driver assistance features that can’t be beat. Add the availability of four different models within the Golf family—the two winners, plus the Golf TDI Clean Diesel and all-electric e-Golf—and it is easy to see why the Golf is considered one of Volkswagen’s best-selling cars in the US market.

New Volkswagen SUV Concept Scheduled to Pirouette In Detroit Next Month

Sources at the automotive rumor-mill say Volkswagen will be towing a new SUV concept to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month. This vehicle will be sporty as all get-out and seat five happy campers. As always, we at Sierra Volkswagen are excited to get more details on this Volkswagen concept.

This isn’t the first time Volkswagen has teased us with a crossover concept. As Truck Trend reminds us, VW dangled the Volkswagen SUV concept CrossBlue before our eyes a couple of years ago in Motor City. The CrossBlue could accommodate six passengers, one short of the special number that typically qualifies a vehicle as an SUV.

Luckily for those sticklers, this new crossover will likely “spin off into a production seven-seat SUV,” reports Truck Trend. Families of seven rejoice! This seven-seater will slide in above the Touareg in VW’s lineup, if everyone’s calculations are correct.
