Herndon, VA (January 7, 2019) — Volkswagen of America, Inc. is pleased to announce that the 2018 Golf SportWagen was named Best Wagon in the 2019 AutoWeb Buyer’s Choice Awards. The awards represent the most in-demand vehicle in each category, based on price quote requests submitted on AutoWeb’s network of automotive websites.
“We are very proud of this win for Golf SportWagen,” said Derrick Hatami, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing and After Sales for Volkswagen of America, Inc. “The SportWagen offers a unique blend of style, spaciousness and Volkswagen’s hallmark fun-to-drive nature, and awards like this serve as proof point that we are hitting the mark with buyers.”
