Volkswagen SA rake it in at 2019 #CarsAwards

Volkswagen continued its rich vein of form in the Consumer Awards – powered by WesBank, of which the winners of the 2019 awards programme were announced during a gala event at Kyalami recently.

Nominated in a record 7 categories, Volkswagen South Africa walked away with no fewer than 4 awards on the night. The feat elevated the Wolfsburg-based marque into a comfortable lead in terms of the most category wins (10) in the history of the #CarsAwards (since 2015/16), ahead of Mercedes-Benz (6) and Suzuki (5).  

In the Compact Hatch category, the new Polo Comfortline clinched the title, while the new Tiguan Allspace regained the trophy for the best Family Car. In the hotly contested Business Class and Leisure Double Cab categories, the Arteon sedan and Amarok bakkie beat out stiff competition to win both awards (the former was arguably the biggest upset on the night).

While Volkswagen is renowned for its popular vehicles, the brand also scores very well in the Ownership Satisfaction Survey, which counts for 50% of the scores in each category. VW owners across South Africa tell us they are very pleased with the reliability of their vehicle and importantly the after-sales service from their Volkswagen dealer.

Volkswagen South Africa will undoubtedly be very keen to repeat its success at the 2020 Consumer Awards, and you can be part of it. Visit to fill in our survey and find out all the details about the winning cars from Volkswagen.
