The Canadian television show Motoring 2007 has awarded the title of the best “Family Car (under $30,000)” to the Volkswagen Rabbit.


“We are thrilled and honoured by the success that the new Rabbit has encountered from the Canadian consumers and media alike,” said John White, executive vice-president of Volkswagen Canada.

Since its June 2006 launch, the Rabbit has been praised by the media and hopped into the hearts of young family sedan buyers.

This latest award joins a host of other awards that the ‘07 Rabbit has garnered from various Canadian groups, publications, and media outlets.

Available in either three- or five-door body styles, the Rabbit is powered by a 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder that develops 150 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque and can be mated with a standard 5-speed manual or optional

6-speed automatic with self-shift Tiptronic mode. Pricing starts at $19,990 for the three-door model.
