Things to Consider When Picking Your Volkswagen

As you start your search for the perfect Volkswagen, you’ll find your options are plentiful and stretch from luxury sedans to spacious SUVs. So, how do you determine the best model for your needs? Answering this question starts by knowing your budget or what you can afford to spend on a vehicle. As you determine your budget, you’ll also want to factor in other expenses like insurance and maintenance.

Once you have a general idea of how much you can afford to spend, it’s time to look at your driving style and passenger and cargo-hauling needs. For example, if you primarily use your car to navigate your commute to work and rarely haul passengers, you might start your search with a compact sedan or an electric vehicle. However, if you’re driving kids to and from school and running errands around town, a larger SUV is likely ideal.

As you narrow your choices down to a sedan, SUV, or electric vehicle, it’s time to revisit your budget and weigh it against everything you want and need in your Volkswagen. Does your budget limit your choices on the new lot to a base trim with only a few luxuries? If so, you’ll find your money will go a lot further on the used lot and can easily get you behind the wheel of top-tier trim in exchange for a few miles on the odometer.

You’ll also want to consider warranty coverage, added protection that engineers confidence long after your purchase. Every new Volkswagen model comes with Scheduled Carefree Maintenance for two years or 20,000 miles, VW Roadside Assistance for three years or 36,000 miles, and a New Vehicle Limited Warranty for four years or 50,000 miles. Depending on their age and mileage, some used models may still be covered by the brand’s new vehicle warranty. Or, you can opt to purchase additional coverage for extended peace of mind if you’re shopping for an older model.

Our Selection of New Volkswagen Models

Volkswagen translates to “the people’s car company,” reflecting the automaker’s early goal to build vehicles designed to meet the evolving needs of drivers around the world. Today, shopping for a new Volkswagen is an excellent example of how Volkswagen has accomplished this feat and lives up to its namesake as a car company for the people. So, what does this mean for your search for a new Volkswagen?

Volkswagen recognizes that every driver has unique needs, so its lineup doesn’t offer a cookie-cutter approach to vehicle design. Instead, its fleet is diverse and runs the gamut from compacts and luxury sedans to spacious SUVs and EVs that usher the Volkswagen lineup into the future. Compacts like the Golf R and Golf GTI prove that performance doesn’t come at the cost of size, with models like the Golf R able to satisfy any need for speed.

Volkswagen has plenty to offer drivers looking for a larger sedan with stunners like the Arteon, Jetta, and Jetta GLI. Larger in size than their compact counterparts, these sedans are sophisticated, aerodynamic, and loaded with features that make them exceptional values and ideal for drivers who need extra room without sacrificing efficiency or performance. But what if you need more passenger and cargo space than a sedan offers? Volkswagen has you covered.

The Volkswagen lineup of SUVs and EVs is exceptional and offers something for everyone. You’ll find all-electric options like the ID.4 maximize efficiency and deliver superior power, making it easy to adopt an all-electric lifestyle. Best-sellers like the Atlas, Taos, Tiguan, and Atlas Cross Sport are also staples in the fleet and offer various cabin sizes, seating configurations, and a progressive suite of features across their lineups to meet all your transportation needs.
