Readers vote for Touareg and Golf GTI in Autotrader & Autocar awards!

The people's cars: Auto Trader and Autocar readers vote for their chosen vehicles in respective categories

The Volkswagen Touareg and Golf GTI have both been awarded impressive titles in seperate awards ceremonies voted for by the public, praising each model in an area for which it has long been renowned!

At the Auto Trader New Car Awards, the Touareg won the title for Best Car For Towing with owners highlighting the model's safety features, practicality and comfort as well as smooth 3.0L V6 TDI engine. Auto Trader readers also pointed out the Touareg's opulence, design and commanding driving position as particularly desirable characteristics.

The Touareg's Trailer Assist system was given a special mention as one of its most intuitive features, by temporarily repurposing the door mirror adjustment joystick to control the steering angle and guide the trailer. This takes the unpredictability out of reversing with a trailer, and leaves the challenging element of this task to the highly-intuitive Touareg.

Another public vote was won by the Golf GTI, bringing home the title of Readers' Champion as part of the dream three-car garage challenge put to the audience. The three categories represented the ultimate three-car combination, with 'Just for Fun', 'Wildcard' and 'Daily Driver' (of which the Golf GTI triumphed. Autocar readers chose the Golf GTI as their Daily Driver of choice, opting for the spec with a 6-speed manual gearbox for this category. This is the second time the Golf GTI has won the Readers' Champion award having received this title previously in 2017 by readers of Autocar.

"Awards from expert panels are always appreciated, and let us know that work we're doing is hitting the spot with consumers. But accolades like these, where the public votes for our cars, are all the more satisfying.
The Golf GTI is the consummate all-rounder, which is why it has reached icon status among car fans, and why it was the first car in the voting public thought of as Autocar's Daily Driver. Meanwhile, the Touareg's sheer capability, both as a tow car and as a luxury SUV in its own right, make it formidable competition in most categories, but the model's trailer-friendly talents have been a hit with expert panels, as well as the readers of Auto Trader, who together judge it to be the best car for towing." said Andrew Savvas, Director at Volkswagen UK. 
It is a pleasure to be able to offer both the Golf 8 GTI and Touareg models here at Breeze Volkswagen, they are both huge favourites for our customers.

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.
