2019 Volkswagen Atlas S trim features

When Volkswagen released the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, it was clear that the automaker held nothing back. The three-row SUV segment is a competitive one, so it only made sense to focus hard on being better than the competition. For this reason, you might think there isn’t much to change for the second year Atlas, but 2019 does bring some new features to the base trim level S. This is a popular choice for many shoppers because it’s the most affordable and the only trim to offer both the 4-cylinder and V6 engines. Read the rest of this entry »

2019 Volkswagen Beetle Final Edition features

It seems we will soon be saying goodbye to the Beetle once more. Though the whimsical model has been going strong since the New Beetle revived it back in 1998, it won’t be lasting past its 21st birthday. We often talk about the Beetle having the longest-running nameplate in the lineup, but this can be misleading. It’s true that it never technically went out of production because the first-generation Type I continued in Mexico up until 2003. That doesn’t mean it was available in all markets. In fact, it went out of production for the U.S. after the 1979 model year, which means it was gone for nearly 20 years for us. Now it is about to be discontinued once more and the 2019 Volkswagen Beetle Final Edition is the last hurrah for the hatchback. Today we’re looking at the SE and SEL trims and what features you can expect. Read the rest of this entry »

Engineering advancements have made turbocharged engines much more competitive, with them found not only in compact cars, but even in crossovers. Recently, it has been indicated that the upcoming 2019 Volkswagen Passat will have the V6 discontinued as an option. Considering it wasn’t offered on any but the top trims, this isn’t surprising, though it may be missed. Read the rest of this entry »

Where does the VW Arteon get its name?

What’s in a name? For Volkswagen fans, the lineup can not only be hard to pronounce, but the model names have unknown origins. The Golf, which you might think gets its name from the popular sport (the hatchback is perfect for packing up those golf clubs), but the model is actually named for the Gulf Stream. The Jetta and Passat are likewise named after trade winds. Joining the lineup for 2019 will be the Volkswagen Arteon, and you may be wondering where this unique name originates.
