Volkswagen, Europe’s leading car manufacturer, begins the year on a high-note with eight awards for its internationally successful carlines – the All-New Passat and Tiguan.
The all-new Passat, in all its versions, has been one of the most successful premium sedans in the world and is one of the highest-volume series of the Volkswagen Group worldwide. Now in its eighth generation, this celebrated model is regarded as one of the most innovative cars in its class with its distinct combination of power, performance and efficiency. One of the three finalists for the prestigious title of, ‘World Car of The Year 2017’, the Tiguan is yet another global best-seller from Volkswagen. With more than 3.5 million owners around the world and equipped with innovative technology, a powerful stance as well as enhanced safety features, the Volkswagen Tiguan has acquired a leading position worldwide.
Their distinct appeal as accessible premium luxury cars and their sheer breadth of capabilities is what has made both the Tiguan and all-new Passat captivate audiences in India and carve a niche for Volkswagen in the country.
Speaking on the occasion, Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars said, “We are extremely proud of the accolades we have received this year. The Tiguan and the all-new Passat have been universally lauded for the standards it has set in its respective classes, in terms of safety, technology and quality. We are confident that we are delivering the relevant products to our customers and these awards are a true testament to our customer’s belief in Brand Volkswagen.”
