Europe’s car of the year is the new Passat. It received the prestigious “Car of the Year” award in the run-up to the Geneva Motor Show. “This award is a great tribute to our engineers, designers and the entire team,” said Prof Dr Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG. The “Car of the Year” award has been conferred since 1967 and is one of the most prestigious prizes in the automotive industry.
