ID.3 and Golf GTI triumph at Carbuyer awards

The Volkswagen ID.3 has picked up its 14th award alongside the legendary Golf GTI picking up another prize for its appeal to those in the market for a used hot hatchback. 

Carbuyer named the ID.3 ‘Best Small Company Car’ – it's a second consecutive award from the title, as well as the ID.3’s second accolade celebrating its virtues for business users. The publication’s sister title, Auto Express, presented the ID.3 with a similar prize previously for its appeal as a company car, highlighting the model’s low running costs, as well as Volkswagen’s huge investment into EVs, which has seen it well-positioned for the switch to electric mobility by the British public.

Richard Ingram, Editor of Carbuyer, said: “Electric cars make fantastic financial sense – and even more so for business users. If you’re after a company car that’s good value, spacious inside and easy to live with, with cutting-edge technology and a usable electric range, the Volkswagen ID.3 is impossible to beat.”

Alongside the ID.3’s triumph as Best Small Company Car, Carbuyer also awarded the Golf GTI the title of ‘Best Used Hot Hatchback’ at its annual awards, celebrating the Mk 7.5’s appeal as a hot hatchback on the used market. Ingram, commenting on the Golf GTI’s success, said: “A sound purchase new, the Mk 7.5 Volkswagen Golf GTI blows its rivals out of the water when buying one second-hand. Everything we loved about the hot hatchback at launch still rings true today; strong performance, excellent everyday usability, and a high-quality interior. All for a fraction of the price.”

This latest victory is the seventh time the Golf as a whole has been celebrated this year. Titles have been given across both the current and previous-generation models, as well as the standard Golf and Golf R, spanning all aspects of the model, from its company car appeal to towing skill, to sheer all-around talent. 

This latest set of trophies takes Volkswagen’s 2021 haul to 29, over one-third of which were won by the highly acclaimed ID.3.

Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited are Appointed Representatives of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 571076). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time.
