What Will the World Car of the Year Be: Volkswagen or Mercedes-Benz?

Posted on April 24, 2013 by admin No Comments


Will the A-Class take the award?

It is down to the final four cars competing for title of World Car of the Year. With an announcement expected by the end of March, the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, Porsche Boxster/Cayman, Volkswagen Golf and combined Scion FR-S/Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ all still remain in the running.

From a list of 42 cars, judges have pared the list down to just the final four. To be eligible in 2013, a car must have been available for commercial sale on at least two continents between January 1, 2012, and May 30, 2013. Cars are judged on a broad range of criteria.


Or will it be the Volkswagen Golf?

Volkswagen is becoming quite experience at building world-renowned vehicles, as this is the fourth time they find themselves in the final four since 2009, and second year in a row, as the Volkswagen Up! was judged the World Car of the Year in 2012. For the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, it has been quite a heady year. Mercedes-Benz just launched the A-Class earlier in 2012 in response to other manufacturer’s entries in to the premium hatchback class.

No matter if your imported vehicle finds itself in the running for a major award or not, it is still welcome at Munich West. Our certified mechanics have the experience in working with Volvo, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Mini, Saab and Audi, and will do their best to keep you on the road.
