As it turns out, women in South Africa love all things Opel. Opel vehicles took top honors in the 2015 Women’s Car of the Year Awards in the hatchback and MPV categories, thanks to the ever-lovable Opel ADAM and Opel Mokka.

“Our new Germans, Opel ADAM and Mokka, came into the market in 2015, representing excitement, approachability and German Engineering with drive,” said GMSA VP of Sales Brian Olson. “We are working closely with our dealer partners to ensure that we continue to grow in Southern Africa. Backed by our comprehensive customer support package, Opel Complete Care, we are committed to providing our customers with outstanding levels of service.”

The annual Women on Wheels Awards are voted on entirely by women. Awards decided in the WOW Awards include the best: budget buy, hatchback, sedan, MPV, green car, crossover/compact SUV, large SUV, convertible, road racer, super car, tick tock, and overall car of the year.

Earlier in 2015, Opel was named Car Magazine’s “Company to watch out for.” Through the first eight months of 2015, brand sales in South Africa are up 76%.
