VOLKSWAGEN GOLF NAMED WORLD CAR OF THE YEAR
The Volkswagen Golf was honored as the 2009 World Car of the Year. A jury of 59 international automotive journalists from 25 countries around the world chose this year's World Car of the Year, which was announced at a news conference during the New York International Auto Show.

"It is a tremendous honor for Volkswagen to have its global best-selling model named the 2009 World Car of the Year," said Stefan Jacoby, President/CEO, Volkswagen of America. "This is a great way to kick-off the new Golf here in America. We're excited for the arrival of the sixth generation Golf, which will be in showrooms later this year. We believe this is the best Golf ever."

The Golf, a perennial favorite in the VW line-up, has sold more than 26 million units in 120 countries, making it one of the top selling vehicles of all-time. The sixth generation Golf debuted at the Paris Motor Show last autumn, and is making its US debut at this year's New York International Auto Show.

The Golf has been designed to be quieter, sportier, fuel efficient and present a clean, distinctive appearance that is fun-to-drive. The 2010 Golf will be available in dealer showrooms across the US this fall in both gasoline and TDI versions.
