It’s summertime and the long semester at UF has finally ended. You’re itching to put the campus in your rearview mirror and take off for a well-deserved summer break. Sounds like a road trip is in your immediate future. So why not text one of your BFFs, make your plans, gather your gear, and head out to Orlando, the beach (well, of course, the beach!), or maybe even a longer trek to places you’ve never been before.
We forgot one not-so-minor detail. How will you get there?

Because last year the 2015 Golf received the automotive industry’s most prestigious accolade: Motor Trend Magazine’s “Car of the Year.” You have to have some serious mojo to win the coveted “Golden Calipers.”
Speaking of awards, the 2016 Golf achieved a milestone when it was named Car And Driver Magazine’s prestigious “10Best” for the 10th time in a row. That’s 10-out-of 10 in case anyone was counting. (Well we were counting, of course.)
In fact, the Golf has become the benchmark against which all other hatchbacks are measured. The publication heaped praise on the Golf, with it earning top marks in six of the COTY’s judging categories. “No matter which Golf variant we jumped into, we emerged with smiles on our faces,” the publication enthused.
