This is the CAR OF THE YEAR 2015

The 8th generation Volkswagen Passat has just been announced as the Europe’s new “Car of the Year” after a multinational jury voted the MQB-based machine ahead of 6 other competitors – BMW 2 Series AT, Citroen C4 Cactus, the new Ford Mondeo, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Nissan Qashqai and Renault Twingo.

This is the second MQB-based car to win the same award, as the Golf 7 received the title in 2013. Before that, Volkswagen also won with the Polo supermini in 2010. We’ve already tested the Passat and found that it has made great improvements in terms of refinement, cabin space and build quality. Right now, the model is available in sedan and estate forms, but a new Passat Alltrack will be launched in Geneva, where the 2015 award was also handed over to VW officials.
