In a comparison test of six entry-level sedans, the editors of Car and Driver ranked the 2007 Volkswagen Rabbit first. Other vehicles included entries from Honda, Hyundai, Mazda, Nissan and Toyota. The results appear in the December 2006 issue of the magazine.The Rabbit swept top rankings in several vehicle attribute categories, including driver comfort, ergonomics, features and amenities and exterior styling. More importantly, editors scored the Rabbit highest in the subjective experience categories of “Gotta Have It” and “Fun to Drive.”

“This acknowledgement reflects upon the Rabbit’s distinctly German-engineered ‘driver’s car’ image, as well as its exterior and interior design qualities,” said Adrian Hallmark, executive vice president, Volkswagen of America, Inc.

The Rabbit made its return to the U.S. market this June, having been previously marketed from 1975 through 1984. It has posted year-to-date sales of 8,245 units through October, more than doubling the monthly average posted by its Golf predecessor. Available in both two-door and four-door hatchback body styles, the Rabbit starts at $14,990.
