Both the Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion and Audi TT missed out on two other awards at the 2007 WCOTY Awards.
Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion was up for the 2007 WORLD GREEN CAR which was won by the MB E320 BLUETECH.
The Audi TT was up for the 2007 WORLD CAR OF THE YEAR which was won by the LEXUS LS460.
I’m glad the TT won in the design category rather than this and feel other Audi models would have fit better here. 2 out of 3 isn’t bad.
Now on the Polo loss, I’m not sure why exactly except that the Polo is a much smaller car with a different audience.. who knows.. I feel it should have one and I’ve seen polls where others thought the same.
