The recently concluded 2015-2016 Auto Focus People’s Choice Awards saw Volkswagen Philippines take home a total of 12 awards including 8 Media’s Choice plaques.
According to Volkswagen Philippines President and CEO John Philip Orbeta, what made the 2015-2016 Auto Focus People’s Choice Awards so meaningful for them was the Media’s Choice recognitions, saying
These were selections made by professionals and a much tougher group of judges.
The Media's Choice Awards saw the Golf GTI win the Best Engine Performance and Best Value for Money in the Luxury Subcompact category. Meanwhile, the Luxury Midsize SUV category saw the Touareg bag 3 out of 4 awards - Best Design, Best Engine Performance, and Best Value for Money. The case was the same for the Touran only this time it was for the Luxury MPV category.
On the other hand, The Touran and the Beetle bagged the Best Luxury MPV and the runner-up for the Best Luxury Compact awards respectively.
The Auto Focus People's Choice Awards is organized and conducted by Sunshine Television Ventures (STV) and is promoted through their long-running motoring TV show Auto Focus.
It employs a nationwide online public poll to determine the most popular automobile brands and models. This goes in tandem with the Media's Choice Awards by way of gathering the educated opinions of media professionals and practitioners to determine which vehicles stand out in terms of design, styling, performance and overall value.
