If you’re heading to the coast this summer for a yearly vacation, there are few better ways to get there than to drive a sporty VW Beetle Convertible. Now available for a test drive at Chapman VW Tucson, the Beetle convertible is affordable, sporty and a hoot on the highway. Imagine yourself driving up the coast with the top down and the wind in your hair while jealous minivan drivers wistfully watch and wish they were you.

Friendly Beetle Now Tech Savvy

While the friendly VW Beetle convertible still resembles the flower-power Bug of the 1960s, technology-wise this is an entirely different animal. With a power top that gently lowers the soft roof into its storage space, Bi-Xenon headlamps, modern gauges, and a 6-speed automatic transmission that lets you go into manual mode when you want to sow some wild oats, the new Beetle is a people’s car for the modern age. Powered by a 1.8L Turbo engine that has plenty of kick when you need it while still achieving 33 mpg on the highway, the Beetle Convertible has the zip to back up it’s sassy design. An infotainment system with VW Car-Net App-Connect lets you stream your favorite tunes, podcast or summer audio book while still maintaining connectivity with the outside world. Choose the premium 400-watt Fender Audio system and you’ll be the coolest cat on the beach, pumping out sounds to the beat of the crashing surf.

VW Engineers Didn’t Forget About Safety

Although the new VW Beetle Convertible is undoubtedly one of the coolest cars on the planet, the engineers didn’t forget to add an abundance of safety features. A rear-view camera pops out from under the VW badge on the back to help you avoid any unforeseen obstacles. Blind spot monitoring alerts you to objects in those areas that you often miss when changing lanes. VW’s Car-Net not only helps you find your Beetle in the massive parking lot at Disneyland, but also calls for help in the event of an emergency.

This is One Rigid Convertible

When it came to designing the new VW Beetle Convertible, the engineers took the rigidity up a couple of notches when compared to other soft-tops. Logically, convertibles are usually never as strong as hardtops for obvious reasons: hardtops have a solid roof with support structures helping to keep the two sides together. VW engineers sharpened their pencils and created a design with a protective safety cage in the Beetle Convertible, creating crash crumple zones while increasing the stability of the body. The net result is a safer convertible that helps protect the occupants during a crash. If it’s time for you to let your hair down and have a little fun, head to Chapman VW Tucson and take a test drive in the sport VW Beetle Convertible.

To celebrate Volkswagen enthusiasts everywhere, the automaker recently unveiled a fleet of five show vehicles at an event in Savannah, Georgia. The VW Beetle, Jetta, Golf GTI, Golf R and Golf Alltrack all received a facelift with some impressive aftermarket accessories. Personalize your VW by visiting the aftermarket department of Chapman VW Tucson.

BMX Rider Inspires Beetle Concept

Alise Post, a title-holding BMX rider, was the inspiration behind the Beetle Post Concept. With two BMX bikes affixed to a roof rack, the VW Beetle proves to be the perfect vehicle to transfer your equipment for a Sunday ride. Mr. Drama Queen wheels provided some flair, while a special coil suspension system lowered the stance and made the friendly Beetle look a bit more aggressive. Designers added some special Habanero Orange paint and special lettering to round out the look.

Nardo Grey Jetta Offers Stealth Appearance

The Jetta GLI is a popular VW model, both for its performance and looks. The GLI delivers unexpected driving dynamics, so the designers went for more of a stealth appearance. They borrowed the Nardo grey paint color from Audi, which accentuates the lines of the vehicle while still remaining subdued. As this car moves from show to show, it will feature different sets of wheels.

Three Versions of Golf Make Fleet

The VW Golf Lineup is one of the most versatile in the VW domain, so it makes sense that three different models made the fleet concept lineup. The Golf GTI RS Concept utilizes a Rocket Bunny wide body kit to deliver a more muscular stance. A stripped down interior screams “race car,” but the aluminum trim, racing seats and other accents are true to the exterior look. Vossen wheels and a Thule carrier box round out the presentation.

The German flag is honored in the Golf R Heritage Concept, with a unique pin striping dissecting a circled racing number. A lower accent stripe grounds the look of the car, which also utilizes Vossen wheels. A lowered sport package brings the center of gravity down, helping reduce body roll when powering around hairpin corners.

The Golf Alltrack Country Concept starts with the newest member of the Golf family. The Alltrack already has the clearance and all-wheel drive necessary to take on trails, but the Concept Vehicle adds another 2-inch lift. Fifteen-inch wheels with all-terrain tires add to the beefy look of this vehicle. You can take a look at all the concept vehicles here to give you some ideas on how to modify your own VW. Check in with the aftermarket pros at Chapman VW Tucson for the best way to personalize your vehicle.

One-size Atlas Fits All

Tired of making choices between the kids, the dog and a week’s worth of groceries? Head to Chapman VW Tucson to check out the new big kid on the block, the VW Atlas. Whether it’s your turn to drive the carpool or the family is heading out for a weekend adventure up on the Mogollon Rim, the Atlas full-size SUV has the room and the power to make any trip memorable.

Seven People Travel in Style

You’ll no longer have to make multiple trips to get everyone to the soccer game on time when you have the new VW Atlas. With room for seven adults to sit comfortably, the Atlas makes long trips less exhausting. There are plenty of amenities to keep everyone happy, including two rear USB charging ports, a Fender Premium Sound System with 12 speakers, and an 8 inch touchscreen to control all the music and communication. VW’s new digital cockpit is a revolutionary way for the driver to control what vehicle information he or she sees, all on a 12.3-inch high definition display.

This VW Has Plenty of Power

Initially, the Atlas comes with a 3.6L V6 engine that provides 276 horsepower and an ample 266 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough for a 5,000-pound tow rating, or more than enough for most recreational camping and boat trailers. You also have your choice of front-wheel drive with precise handling or the VW 4MOTION all-wheel drive system that allows you to choose your driving mode.

Safety First, As Always

As always with VW, safety comes first. With the new VW Atlas, safety starts on the inside with a safety cage that features front and rear crumple zones to protect the passengers. Seven different stability enhancing systems, such as electronic stability control and electronic brake pressure distribution, help you keep control of the Atlas when conditions get rough. An Intelligent Crash Response System shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors and turns on the four-way flashers in the event of a collision. Available driver assistance features that help you avoid collisions includes blind spot monitoring, rear traffic alert, park distance control, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and an overhead view camera. Park steering assist helps you maneuver the large VW Atlas into even the tightest parking space.

Welcome to America’s Best Warranty

Volkswagen is so confident in the new Atlas that it offers an unheard-of 6-year, 72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. That’s double the warranty of most manufacturers. See why the VW Atlas is the next big thing in the SUV market when you take a test drive at Chapman VW Tucson.

Golf R Performance Package Adds More Pop

Although the thoroughly nimble and extremely responsive VW Golf R already has enough pep and agility to satisfy most driver’s needs, Volkswagen is upping the ante with a Performance Package for the European 2018 model. Air curtains, a new rear spoiler, titanium exhaust and high performance brakes are all options on the upcoming model year Golf R, turning this mini-beast into a certifiable monster on the track. The Performance Package also disables the speed limiter, allowing the new version of the Golf R to hit 166 mph. Although the package won’t be available in the United States initially, be sure and stay in touch with Chapman VW Tucson to see if that changes.

Cut to the Chase Quickly

With a massive 292 horsepower delivering a dynamic thrill ride, the compact Golf R hatchback can go from 0 to 60 mph in under 5 seconds. The high-performance turbocharger delivers 280 pound-feet of torque while the sport-tuned suspension and Dynamic Chassis Control keeps you in charge as you power around corners. The adjustable damper valves in the Golf R shock absorbers let you fine-tune your way from comfort to aggressive handling. The 6-speed automatic transmission allows you to paddle shift up and down the gear range with just the touch of a finger. Add the 4Motion all-wheel drive system and the VW Golf R automatically transfers torque between the front and back wheels as needed.

Cool Features Add a Sporty Touch

From the blue accent illuminated gauges to the dual exhaust with quad tips, the VW Golf R has a number of features that take sportiness to a different level. Sink into the bucket-style racing seats and let the large bolsters hold you firmly in place as you put the little hatch through its paces. From the moment you fire up the engine with the push-button start until you engage the parking brake at the end of your run, the VW Golf R unleashes a “fun-to-drive” feeling that’s unmatched in its category.

Technology Lives in VW Golf R

The days of performance cars providing an austere existence to drivers and passengers are long gone. Bare bones dashboards are now filled with classic infotainment systems, including a Fender Premium Audio system that delivers 400 watts of raw power in the VW Golf R. Use the App-Connect feature to plug in your smartphone and stream music, podcasts and books while using the communication features without ever taking your eyes off the road. The Golf R is also packed with driver assistance safety features. Be amazed at the power and innovation when you take a test drive at Chapman VW Tucson.

When the all-new VW Tiguan and Atlas show up on the Chapman VW Tucson showroom floor later this year, they’ll bring with them America’s best SUV warranty. The 2018 Tiguan and Atlas will have a 6-year/72,000-mile transferable bumper-to-bumper warranty that far exceeds any competitor’s coverage. “We specifically designed and built the all-new Atlas and Tiguan for American customers. This warranty further addresses the needs of American buyers head-on,” according to VW America CEO Hinrich J. Woebcken. “We’re confident in the reliability and workmanship of these SUVs and we want our customers to be confident in their purchase. We believe this warranty will lead to reduced cost of ownership for Volkswagen owners.”

Includes Coverage on Engine, Transmission and All-wheel Drive

The 6-year/72,000-mile warranty not only includes components such as air conditioning, electronics and basically anything between the two bumpers, but also the expensive powertrain, including the engine, transmission and all-wheel drive system. Most competitors only offer a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty with powertrain coverage up to 5 years and 60,000 miles. Aside from providing much longer coverage, Volkswagen allows owners to transfer their warranty to a new owner, adding resale value to the Tiguan and Atlas.

New Tiguan Longer Than Predecessor

The 2018 Tiguan is almost 11 inches longer than the previous model, offering flexible seating for five with a second row that’s easily adaptable for people or cargo. “The new Tiguan demonstrates how we plan to give American customers the usability and versatility they demand without sacrificing style or Volkswagen’s trademark driving dynamics,” Woebcken said. The new Tiguan offers a whole suite of driver assistance technology, designed to help avoid collisions. Optional 4Motion all-wheel drive gives you complete control during the worst driving conditions. The new VW Tiguan is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged engine, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission to deliver the best performance and fuel mileage.

Full-size Atlas Built in Tennessee

The all-new VW Atlas full-size SUV is built at VW’s Chattanooga, Tennessee plant, boosting the local economy and providing hundreds of jobs. The new Atlas is roomy and powerful, designed to quench the American thirst for big SUVs. “This is the biggest and boldest Volkswagen we have ever built in the United States, delivering the distinctive design and craftsmanship we’re known for, now with room for seven,” Woebcken said. See the new Tiguan and Atlas for yourself and take a test drive this fall when they arrive at Chapman VW Tucson.
