The Volkswagen Golf has been named Best Lower Medium Car of 2011 by Fleet World. The trophy was collected by Lee Rabjohn, Volkswagen's Regional Fleet Manager at the Royal Automobile Club in London.
Lee Rabjohn commented: "I'm delighted to receive this award on behalf of the brand. The Golf has long been a fleet stalwart - and it's a huge credit to the car that it continues to win awards such as this. Vehicles that appeal to drivers and fleet managers in equal measure are not easy to find, but the Golf consistently remains one such car."
The Fleet World Honours are an annual event, and are presented to motor manufacturers, service companies and individuals who have been judged to have achieved the highest possible level of excellence in their sector.
Fleet World Editor, Steve Moody, said: "The Volkswagen Golf just keeps performing, whatever point in its lifecycle, and the Mark VI is no different. Strong residual values, dependable on-fleet performance and classy styling mean it never goes out of fashion. And in BlueMotion guise it does something few cars can do: it matches its on-paper claims."
The judging panel is chaired by Steve Moody and includes members of the Fleet World editorial team.
