2019 Volkswagen Arteon Review

Volkswagen has a new halo model and no it’s not a W8 or a Phaeton. They’ve named it the Arteon and it picks up where the CC left off, offering VW shoppers a more stylish alternative to the Passat. MSRP of this one with no options is $42,790.  It’s a car I’d be happy to drive every day and with 4MOTION it’s a perfect year-round family car with some flair. https://testdrivenow.com/2019-volkswagen-arteon/

2020 VOLKSWAGEN MODELS TO OFFER NEXT GENERATION CAR-NET & Wi-Fi

Volkswagen of America, Inc. announced its changes for the 2020 model year. Across the lineup, most models are equipped with the next-generation Car-Net telematics system and standard in-car Wi-Fi capability when you subscribe to a data plan.

2019 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

There is a surprisingly large faction of car buyers who don’t want “stuff.” I see it in my comments section all the time: “I don’t need…just more to go wrong, more I’ll have to fix, too complicated.” Well, this review is for those people: the VW Golf SportWagen. There’s no smart key, no push button start, no power liftgate, no full-power seats, no leather, no sat radio, no navi, no LED headlights, no sunroof, no USB ports in the rear, no adaptive cruise control. So those who prefer basic can rejoice because this VW offers up a whole lot of no for about $27k.

2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Review

Affordable, fun and frugal; the GLI has been fitting that bill now for a number of years. And even though this model is all-new the GLI continues to deliver on that heritage. Getting into a VW is like going to visit your grandparents; familiar, welcoming, but kind of stuck in time. You know exactly what you’re going to get and that’s not necessarily a criticism because VW’s formula for building fun to drive cars simply works. The GLI still offers a stick shift and it’s as easy as Sunday morning, the flat cowl provides excellent forward visibility and the turbo adds zip. It’s not groundbreaking stuff but put it all together and it just feels right. Spacious, efficient, reasonably priced and dialed in the GLI is the right Jetta for the driver who wants a little more.

2019 Volkswagen Arteon First Look

VW pulled the wraps off of this one over 2 years ago which is why it already feels somewhat familiar, despite the fact that it’s just gone on sale here in the U.S. Following the tradition of difficult to pronounce names, this is the all-new 2019 Arteon.
With competitors such as the Acura TLX, Infiniti Q50, Kia Stinger and Nissan Maxima in its sites, the 2019 VW Arteon is an amalgam of gotta have it styling and capable dynamics.
