Volkswagen Up! Becomes 2012 World Car of the Year
This year, the VW Up! managed to get in front of all the other contestants, being the best of the initial 34 cars. Actually, there are four categories, including the overall one, where the Up! competed, the Green World Car of the Year, which crowned the Mercedes-Benz S250 CDI BlueEfficiency (you might know this as the four-cylinder diesel S-Class), the World Car Design of the Year, which was dominated by the Range Rover Evoque.
Of course, we also have our favorite, the World Performance Car of the Year, but this deserves a dedicated piece of news, which you can find here.
