The 2018 Autoshow season is here

All-New 2019 Jetta debuts in Montreal

It’s that time of year again when automotive manufacturers and enthusiasts come together to celebrate automotive excellence at Autoshows around the country.

This is such an exciting time of year for us at Volkswagen Canada. Some of our newer models will be on display, like the 2018 Atlas, Tiguan, the Passat GT and the e-Golf, alongside long-time favourites, Beetle, Beetle Convertible, Golf, Golf R, Golf GTI, Golf Alltrack and Golf SportWagen.

But what makes this Autoshow one worth checking out is the All-New 2019 Jetta. Fans of this popular sedan can look forward to a sleeker, more streamlined exterior body. The all new interior features driver-centric features like our digital cockpit and assistive technologies.

In fact, our team recently invited a group of Canadian automotive journalists to the Volkswagen Proving Grounds in Arizona to test drive the newly redesigned sedan. Find out what they had to say about the 2019 Jetta.  If you like what they had to say, be sure to sign up to receive updates and information about the 2019 Jetta, as it becomes available.

If you’re considering making the trip to one of the upcoming Autoshows, be sure to drop by the Volkswagen booth to get an up-close and personal look at the All-New Jetta. And, while you’re there, you can sneak a peek at our other models, especially if you’re in the market for something a little larger. The 2018 Atlas, with its third-row seating, 4MOTION All-Wheel Drive and massive interior is a definite must-see. Not sure you need something that big? No worries. The 2018 Tiguan has got you covered. It’s bigger and bolder than its predecessor and it comes with optional third row seating so there’s no need to sacrifice passengers space for cargo space. So, be sure to drop by an Autoshow near you to check them out.

We hope to see you there!

The 2017 Golf GTI gets an epic review

They don’t call it a hot hatch for nothing.

William Clavey of Clavey’s Corner recently wrote about his experiences driving Golf-R and GTI. If you’re looking for a performance hatchback and are wondering which is the right one for you, Clavey’s got you covered.

While the two models share similar features, the Golf-R possesses a slightly more aggressive ride. Given that, you might expect Clavey to choose it as one he would own. Surprisingly, the GTI is the Volkswagen Golf that wins his heart. According to Clavey,

“[…] whatever roads you’ll devour with your little hatch, you’ll have a big fat grin plastered all over your face, because this thing is absolutely epic.”

It’s true. GTI is one powerful hatch that has truly been designed with drivers in mind. It produces a breathtaking 210 horsepower with 258 lb torque. Add to that a solid sport suspension that delivers precise handling and produces less body roll, and you get one hot hatch that really sticks to the road. The result is an exhilarating driving experience.

Clavey’s review is both succinct and comprehensive, covering performance and design in equal measure. He enjoys the comfort and support of the seating while admiring the simple, yet elegant dashboard design. Small touches like red stitching and ambient lighting provide a luxurious feel that complements this little hatch’s performance features.
