The iconic Volkswagen Golf has achieved decades of success — and for the 2019 model-year, it continues to bolster its legacy with its stylish and versatile hatchback design, fun-to-drive nature, user-friendly multimedia technologies, a generous amount of cargo space, and high-level safety. Recently, Good Housekeeping gave the 2019 VW Golf the 2019 Best New Car Award in the Compact category.
2019 VW Golf Wins Best New Car Award
The Good Housekeeping Institute partnered with Car and Driver for the Best New Car Awards, creating a guide to the year’s best cars and rated vehicles on safety, value, handling, design, and technology. The ratings are based upon more than 5,000 miles of driving on city roads, highways, and test tracks. Contributing factors to the Best New Car Award for the 2019 VW Golf include standard driver assistance features, a generous amount of storage space, and roomy back seats.
“Based on our testing, we recommend this sturdy, reliable option for anyone — from a young family in the suburbs to a recent grad in the city.” – Laurie Jennings, Good Housekeeping Institute Director & Lead Consumer Tester
