Golf Wagon wins gold award

Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - SHEPPARTON CAR WEEKLY -

Volk­swa­gen’s Golf Wagon has won the 2014 iF gold award. The highly cher­ished prod­uct de­sign award was pre­sented in Mu­nich to Ste­fan Wallburg, ex­te­rior de­signer for the Volk­swa­gen brand.

For 60 years now, the iF prod­uct de­sign award has been a glob­ally recog­nised hall­mark, hon­our­ing out­stand­ing de­sign achieve­ment.

An in­ter­na­tional jury made up of 49 de­sign ex­perts, who judged the more than 3200 en­tries over re­cent weeks, re­warded the Golf Wagon with the sought-af­ter iF gold award in the Trans­porta­tion De­sign cat­e­gory.

The gold awards are granted to the best com­pe­ti­tion en­tries in 17 cat­e­gories.

In its of­fi­cial state­ment the jury said: ‘‘The Golf Wagon has a clean and orig­i­nal de­sign that is un­mis­tak­able and sig­nif­i­cant for the brand.

‘‘The de­sign is so su­perb be­cause it does not cry out for any ex­ag­ger­ated emo­tion­al­ity.

‘‘Rather it shows how even with sim­ple means it is pos­si­ble to achieve a per­fect re­sult in prod­uct de­sign. ‘‘The car sim­ply oozes qual­ity.’’ The new Golf Wagon has been on the mar­ket in Ger­many since last Au­gust and launched in Aus­tralia in Fe­bru­ary.

The sporty and el­e­gant all-rounder com­bines low fuel con­sump­tion with dy­namic per­for­mance and great flex­i­bil­ity.

At 605litres, for in­stance, the boot space is even big­ger than that of its pre­de­ces­sor. The Golf Wagon is thus the per­fect ve­hi­cle for fam­i­lies and ac­tive people, who need a spa­cious, ev­ery­day car for a di­verse ar­ray of pos­si­ble uses.
