Touran wins ninth consecutive What Car? trophy

It's a great start to 2022, with awards from three separate UK publications presented to models across teh Volkswagen range. The Touran, Golf and ID.4 have all been recognised as the best in their segment, with the ID.4 deemed ‘Family EV of the Year’ by Company Car Today; the Golf named ‘Medium Car of the Year’ by Company Car and Van; and the Touran collecting the ‘MPV of the Year’ title at the annual What Car? Awards.

The Golf’s win with Company Car and Van is attributed by the publication to its interior, technology and driving characteristics, with Editor, Andrew Walker, adding: “The benchmark car in its class, the Golf is still the one to beat and retains our Medium Car of the Year Award for 2022. Others have tried, and some have come close, but for us the Golf is still the stand-out five-door family hatchback, and is practically perfect in every way.”

The ID.4 was the next to be praised by UK media, with the expert panel at Company Car Today naming the ID.4 ‘Family EV of the Year’ at its 2022 CCT100 Awards, based on running costs, efficiency, practicality, breadth of range, performance and car park appeal.

Paul Barker, Editor of Company Car Today, said: “Volkswagen’s new ID.4 is another great step on the route to EVs being a mainstream part of the motoring landscape, offering a good variation of models to suit differing driver needs, plenty of space and practicality and enough range to banish anxiety. It’s sensible and stylish, and makes sense on a balance sheet and a driveway.”

Last but not least in the trio of triumphs, the Touran’s latest victory is its ninth from What Car? , adding a remarkable sixth overall category win to its collection of What Car? trophies. This is n addition to two price point prizes, and its other accolade of ‘Best Used MPV’ from What Car?, which it was awarded in September. The Touran holds the dual titles of being What Car?’s reigning new ‘MPV of the Year’, as well as its ‘Best Used MPV’.

Judges noted the Touran’s considerable practicality combined with hatchback-like handling, its seven-seat potential with flexible seating arrangements, and its refinement, equipment, value and quality – attributes touching every facet of the family-focused model.

Also at the prestigious What Car? Awards ceremony, two of Volkswagen’s battery electric models were recognised for their class-leading appeal. First. the e-up! city-car BEV was presented with ‘Best Value Small Electric Car’, while the big-selling ID.3 was judged to be ‘Best Small Electric Car for Long Distances.’

Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car? said: “One of the things that makes the Touran so good is that it drives more like a well-sorted hatchback than a traditional MPV. Even when every seat is occupied, the comparatively small 1.5-litre engine is plenty strong enough. Plus, you get Isofix child seat points on all five rear seats, there's space for adults in all three rows, and interior quality feels a cut above rivals.”

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.
