VW at NAAS 2017
Given our proximity to NYC, we are pretty familiar with Fashion Week. However, we feel like fashion is not limited to clothes, hair, shoes, and handbags—it can include automobiles as well! We are just wrapping up one of the biggest automotive fashion weeks of the year, which took place in Detroit. At the North American Auto Show, vehicle brands—including Volkswagen—displayed their latest innovations and designs. Here are some of Volkswagen’s biggest highlights:
2018 Volkswagen Atlas Made an Appearance
Volkswagen fans have known about the upcoming Atlas for a few months now, but it was awesome to get another look. As a full size SUV, the Atlas was designed specifically for the American family that is active and likes to travel. It has three rows of seats and lots of space for cargo. The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas should be arriving at our dealership later this spring, so keep checking our blog for the latest details.
Debut of the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
It is hard to believe that as of 2017, the Volkswagen Tiguan has been in production for 10 years. In that time, it has become a best-seller, especially at our dealership! For 2018, the Tiguan will be starting its next generation with a new look, which was unveiled at the NAAS. The aspect that audience members were most excited about was the growth of the Tiguan. For 2018, the crossover will be 10 inches longer, which allows for a significantly larger cargo space (up to 57%) and the ability to fit a third row of seats.
Debut of the Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ Concept
Do you remember the VW buses from the 1960s and 1970s? They were pretty awesome and we miss them! We were delighted with the unveiling of the Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ concept vehicle, which gives us that throwback to yesteryear while being incredibly futuristic. The Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ is an electric vehicle that can cover as much as 270 miles! It can also fit up to eight passengers, and the seats can be turned to promote socializing. As a concept, we don’t think that the Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ will be available to consumers anytime soon, but there is always a possibility in the future.
