The dynamic 2016 Volkswagen Passat was named the region’s ‘Best Mid-Size Sedan’ at the second annual ArabWheels Awards.
Commenting on the award, Andrew Savvas, Director Volkswagen Middle East said: “The Passat has established itself as the preferred sedan by our customers across the Middle East, who choose the Passat for its design, technology and state-of-the-art safety features, that are second-to none in its class. Taking home the award for “Best Mid-Size Sedan” by one of the region’s leading automotive magazines is a resounding endorsement of the class-leading features of the new, best-selling Passat.”
