And Where to Find the Best Cars at a Volkswagen Dealer Near You

We are well aware of our reputation here at Volkswagen. We make fun cars and we make them well. Full stop.

Our audience has seen this with classics like the VW Beetle, the VW Microbus, and newcomers like the VW Taos. When VW engineers and designers conceptualize our vehicles, they do so knowing that our audience expects the kind of driving experience that brightens their day.

We don’t make point-A-to-point-B cars here. We make stand-outs and scene-stealers. We make cars that are so fun to drive that people wind up taking the scenic route to get home. Time in a VW is time well spent.

Okay, so it sounds like we’re tooting our own horn, so what do the reviewers have to say?

The Volkswagen ID.4, our first foray into the electric market, won the 2021 World Car of the Year award. Additionally, several of our other vehicles like the VW Golf GTI and the VW Jetta were featured on Car and Driver’s Editors’ Choice List. Many of their reviews remarked about the amazing driving style and sleek design of our vehicles.

So, what are drivers loving about VW these days? What’s trending at a Volkswagen near you?

#1 – VW Drivers Love Not Paying for Gas

The prices at gas pumps are scarier than most horror movies these days. Paying $70 or $80 at the pump can be a real gut punch, and fuel-savers programs can only do so much. There’s got to be a better way, right?

There is, in fact, and it goes by the name VW ID.4, our award-winning electric vehicle. Able to drive up to 275 miles on a single charge, this gorgeous and futuristic compact SUV is the perfect solution for never having to pay for gasoline ever again.

And if you think electric vehicles are too expensive – think again. The VW ID.4 has a starting MSRP of just $41,230 ($33,730 after potential federal tax credit).

#2 – VW Drivers Love Big Storage Capacity and Power

Out here in Lee’s Summit, we all dream about that big family road trip out to the lake. However, in order to do that, you need an SUV that packs some serious size and power. You’re also going to need some extra muscle if you plan on hauling your boat out to the Lake of the Ozarks.

Fortunately, Volkswagen always comes through in the clutch. The 2022 VW Atlas has a max cargo space of 96.8 cubic feet and can comfortably accommodate up to seven people. It’s the perfect SUV for any lakeside camping trip or long-distance cross-country adventure.

The Atlas has towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds, up to 266 lb-ft. of torque, and up to 276 horsepower. You’ll be the most powerful vehicle on the road in the Atlas.

#3 – VW Drivers Love Our Features

Another big win for VW drivers is the amount of features that they have at their beck and call. Of course, features like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, expansive touchscreens, app-connect features, VW Digital Cockpit, and a professional sound system all make driving more enjoyable.

However, we’re also big on safety here at Volkswagen as well. Features like travel assist, adaptive cruise control, active blind spot monitor, rear traffic alert, and emergency assist all ensure our drivers and their precious cargo get to where they’re going safely.
