One of the oldest car models the German car manufacturing brand Volkswagen has in its production line is the Volkswagen Golf. The VW Golf is an automobile which has been in production for almost 4 decades now, with its first introduction dating all the way back to 1974. The Golf is classified as a B-Segment, or a supermini vehicle. It is currently in its 7th generational change right now, and is still one of the most popular supermini models out there in the market today. In the United States, the Golf is also known as the Volkswagen Rabbit, and in Mexico, it is dubbed as the Volkswagen Caribe.
The Volkswagen Golf is the successor the Volkswagen Beetle. In this context, the Beetle gave its success to the right successor. The Golf was given the title of the “All The Car You’ll Ever Need Car of the Year 2012” award last year by the car magazine Top Gear. Though surely not the only award the Golf has won (the Golf Mk3 won the European Car Of The Year Award back in 1992) in its whole existence of 39 years, and certainly not the only award it was nominated for, it is certainly one of the most illustrious ones it has attained.
