2012 New York: Volkswagen Up named 2012 World Car of the Year

The Volkswagen Up! has been named the 2012 World Car of the Year by a jury of 66 top journalists from 25 countries at the 2012 New York Auto Show.

“This award shows once again that in the up!, our designers and engineers have created a vehicle that has been thought through in minute detail. A vehicle that sets standards in its class for efficient use of space, safety, motoring fun and environmental compatibility,” said Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG.
