Auto Motor Und Sport readers like their Volkswagens

Readers of the German car magazine “Auto Motor und Sport” have chosen three Volkswagen models in the annual poll for “Best Cars”.

The new subcompact Polo, a model not sold in Canada, scored 44.1 percent of the votes in the small car class. The Golf was declared best in its class for the 21st time, with 24 percent of the votes. In the “Van” category, the compact Sharan minivan, another Volkswagen model not available in Canada, was given 17.1 percent of the readers’ votes, which put it ahead of the field. The Volkswagen Caravelle was runner-up.

162,000 readers of the magazine took part in this poll, considerably more than in previous years.
