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.
