VW Golf 1.4 TSI

The VW Golf 1.4 TSI has been awarded as Car of the Year in South Africa.

The VW Golf 1.4 TSI beat off strong competition from the Alfa Romeo MiTo 1.4 Turbo, Audi Q5 2.0T S tronic, Chevrolet Cruze 1.8 LS, Hyundai i20 1.6 GLS, Suzuki Alto 1.0 GLS, Toyota Prius 1.8 ECVT Advanced and Volvo’s XC60 3.0T Geartronic which were the other finalists vying for honours in the country’s premier motoring event.

By definition, the SA Car of the Year should evoke automotive passion and excitement to make it a truly outstanding car both in its class and in the whole market.

The COTY competition is about automotive excellence and the winning car must score highly in its class across a variety of categories including those which reflect value for money, safety, dynamics, technology and aesthetics.
