Milton Keynes: The Volkswagen Golf (Mk 7) has added another accolade to its illustrious trophy cabinet, claiming the top prize in the ‘Best Used Family Car’ category at the annual Auto Express Used Car Awards. The iconic family hatchback, manufactured in Mk 7 guise between 2012 and 2019, was praised by the publication’s expert panel for its comprehensive range of engines and trim levels that suit every taste and budget.

Another win for the Volkswagen Golf

It is the second time in three years that the Golf has scooped an award in this highly competitive segment, previously taking the title in 2020 with the e-Golf. The prestigious award once again highlights Golf’s wide-ranging credentials as a leader in its class.

Steve Fowler, Editorial Director at Auto Express, said: “With nearly half a century of development under its wheels, it’s no surprise the Volkswagen Golf still sets the class standard. That’s particularly true of the Mk 7 that made its debut in 2012: smartly styled and spacious, it’s also great to drive and has one of the most comprehensive range of engines and trim levels in the business – so there’s something for every taste and budget.

“Factor in excellent reliability and it’s not hard to see why the Golf is such a used hatch hit, and our best used compact family car for 2022.”

Stuart Knott, National Used Car Manager at Volkswagen UK, said: “As a brand, we’ve always prided ourselves on delivering stylish, practical and affordable products to our customers, and it’s great to see the Golf recognised once again for leading the industry in this respect and continuing to win awards. Now in its eighth generation, the Golf is one of the most successful cars ever produced and is still as relevant today as it was in its original Mk 1 guise back in 1974.”
