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.

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.

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.
