6 VW models picked for Car & Driver’s (C&D) Editors’ Choice Award

In an exciting turn of events, Volkswagen has received the 2022 Car and Driver’s Editor’s Choice Award for six vehicles in their lineup. Let’s walk through them one by one.

Golf GTI

The GTI has been around for decades, but instead of fading into the background, it continually stays in the forefront of automotive excellence. Drivers love the snappy handling and sharp acceleration, and the fit and finish inside and out speak to the quality of German engineering. The GTI also ranked in the top 10 best cars for C&D 2022 – its 16th consecutive placement.

Golf R

The Golf R merges practicality and performance into a well-balanced package. Now sporting a 315-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter motor and rear-axle torque vectoring, the Golf R puts the R in performance.

ID.4 Electric SUV

The second model year of the ID.4 has proven to be an exciting one. It has both a 201 horsepower variant, as well as a 295 horsepower AWD (all-wheel drive) version. The ID.4 has a range of up to 280 miles, supports DC fast charging, and may receive a federal tax credit of $7,500.


It may be small, but it is mighty. The 2022 VW Taos has available: IQ.DRIVE advanced safety features, 4Motion® all-wheel drive, Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, and more.

Jetta GLI

Compact sports sedans are made to be fun and practical for day-to-day driving. The GLI delivers with a high-revving 228 horsepower 4-cylinder matched to a standard 6-speed manual transmission. Call it a “GTI with a trunk” or not, it is a great car.


The Tiguan offers an available third row of seating, comes standard with Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, standard LED headlights and taillights, and retains that VW sense of being fun to drive.
