For years Volkswagon has been one of the biggest and well-respected automobile brands in the world. Their vehicles offer reliability, class, style, and value. If you’re in the market for a new or used car, it’s well worth it to give VW vehicles a try. Here are three of the most popular Volkswagon vehicles you can find at your local dealership and at Coachella Valley Volkswagon.
Volkswagon Golf GTI Sport
The Volkswagon GTI Sport is a quick and sporty compact that offers drivers a refined, quiet, and smooth ride packed with tech and safety features. Look up reviews of the 2017 Golf GTI and you’ll be hard pressed to find anything less than 4 out of 5 stars.
Available in several trim levels, the new-for-2017 GTI Sport level comes standard with pretty much everything you could need or want including 18-inch wheels, the iconic plaid fabric upholstery, bixenon headlights, an upgraded touchscreen featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and even proximity entry with push-button start. A powerful turbocharged engine, light and accurate steering and sprightly handling, make it a fun car to drive. Plus it has plenty of room inside.
The 2018 Volkswagon Atlas is the latest addition to the VW line, and it was well worth the wait! This sporty three-row crossover offers room for seven, with more space for luggage in the back. The base model comes packed with standard features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, voice recognition, a panoramic sunroof, and smartphone integration. The available optional features list is even longer and includes options such as navigation and forward collision monitoring.
Despite it’s large size, the Atlas handles like a smaller vehicle, and offers a smooth, comfortable ride with two powerful engine options. Drivers can choose from either a 235-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or a 276-hp, 3.6-liter V6 with front-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is also available on the V-6.
The Volkswagon Passat remains a popular midsize sedan, offering drivers a quiet and upscale cabin, spacious seating, smooth performance, and a powerful optional V6 engine. It is available in four main trim levels including the S, R-Line, SE and SEL Premium. All trim levels come standard with a turbocharged four-cylinder with 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, and a 3.6-liter V6 is available on the SE and SEL Premium trim levels.
Standard safety features on the Passat include antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, a rearview camera, multiple airbags, and a forward collision mitigation system with automatic braking. Optional safety features include a lane departure warning system, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring and more.
If you’re look for a vehicle that offers quality, reliability, style and affordability, take a look at Volkswagon. In addition the the three vehicles I shared above, VW also offers a full line-up of models that are definitely worth a look.
