Big honor for Chattanooga built VW Passat

November 18th, 2011 in Opinion Free Press

Whether or not you plan to buy a Volkswagen Passat yourself, it is exhilarating for our community that the Chattanooga-made vehicle has been honored by Motor Trend magazine as Car of the Year.

The Passat narrowly beat out the Chrysler 300.

The Passat was praised for its design, engineering, fuel efficiency, safety and value. All those factors are obviously important as buyers choose a car.

This honor can only enhance the Passat's prestige and increase sales, benefiting our community as well as Volkswagen.

We reflect with pride on the success of the Passat, and on the economic boost that success will bring.
