Volkswagen Canada is pleased to announce that the 2015 Golf has been named as the winner of the Canadian Automotive Jury's annual "Best of the Best" award. The Jury is comprised of prominent Canadian Automotive journalists.

This is the second time that the Golf has taken overall honours, the previous model having won the Jury's inaugural award in 2010.

The Golf features a variety of 4-cylinder turbocharged engines from the all-new 1.8TSI, to the economical 2.0 TDI Clean Diesel as well as the high-output 220 hp 2.0L TSI found in the sportiest Golf, the GTI.

Praised for its overall refinement and excellent value, the Golf is available in a variety of trims and bodystyles, and is priced from just $18,995.

"Since arriving in Canada in 1974, the Volkswagen Golf has been a perennial favourite. Now in its seventh generation, it continues to do everything demanded with great aplomb," says CAJ member Graeme Fletcher. "From the base 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder to one of the hottest hatches on the planet, the Golf R, Volkswagen has the bases covered.

"Regardless of model, all bring versatility and flexibility and they do so with a dash of spice and significantly more refinement than ever before. All of this means the Volkswagen Golf family, from entry-level to R, is the Jury's Best of the Best."

The latest member of the Golf lineup, the all-new 2015 Golf Sportwagon, was just unveiled at the annual Montreal Autoshow and will be at Volkswagen dealers in April. It delivers all of the qualities of the Golf hatchback line, and offers drivers an extra bit of luggage space without sacrificing driveability.
