Volkswagen Philippines bagged eight plaques from the 2016-2017 Auto Focus People’s Choice and Media’s Choice Awards that held recently at the Valle Verde Country Club Ballroom in Pasig City.

All of Volkswagen Philippines’ eight victories were in the Media’s Choice component, spread over three categories, namely: Best Engine Performance for the Golf GTI, Touran and Passat; Best Value for Money for the Golf GTI, Touran, Passat, and Touareg, and; Best Design for the Golf GTI.

The 2016-2017 Auto Focus Media’s Choice Awards (AFMCA) is a significant part of Sunshine Television Venture’s (STV’s) automobile industry merit program, which aims to further recognize the industry’s continuing efforts to provide car owners and motorists with the best on-board features, styling, performance and over-all value.

To earn a Media’s Choice award, the winning model must receive at least 51 percent or more of the total votes cast by active members of the Philippine motoring media in that model’s specific performance category. This year, only 49 of the 88 award categories had a winner.

The Awards Night was attended by members of the auto industry’s two lead organizations, the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI) and the Association of Vehicle Importers & Distributors (AVID).
