2017 Golf SportWagen Alltrack picks up two awards

The 2017 Golf SportWagen Alltrack has made its mark in Canada. Recently, website and the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) respectively, bestowed two awards on our newest addition.

The 2017 Edition of the Awards were recently announced. We’re proud to report that Golf Alltrack came out on top as “Subcompact SUV of the Year”. Along with the Alltrack, the Mazda CX-3 and the Honda HR-V rounded out this year’s finalists.

In addition, AJAC announced their Canadian Car of the Year Awards today. We’re also pleased to announce that the 2017 Golf SportWagen Alltrack received the AJAC Award for BEST NEW LARGE CAR. Along with the Alltrack, category finalists included the Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid and the Kia Optima HEV.

The AJAC Awards were created by journalist members of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) to provide consumers with sound, comparative information on vehicles that are new to the market. Each year, the top automotive journalists from across Canada gather to evaluate new or significantly improved vehicles making their debut on the market. The evaluation is based on real-world back-to-back testing to ensure the most relevant results possible. At the end, the best new vehicles in various categories are selected as well as an overall Canadian Car of the Year and Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year. A “Best New Technology” award is also chosen.
