Golf Wagon wins gold award
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.
