Volkswagen AG has announced that the Polo has brought home the prestigious World Car of the Year award for 2010, which was judged by 59 automotive journalists from across the world.

"We are honoured that the Volkswagen Polo was chosen by this distinguished group of jurors. After the triumph of the Golf last year, we are delighted to repeat this success with the new Polo. This shows that Volkswagen is on the right track and is offering arguably the best range of products in its history," says Professor Dr Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG.

VW Polo had earlier won the 2010 European Car of the Year (ECOTY) award.

The Volkswagen Polo competed with none other but well-known contenders including the Toyota Prius and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class to be awarded as the 2010 World Car of the Year.

The Polo which won the award is no different from the Polo which is currently being sold in India.
