Check out the entire VW Jetta lineup and take a test drive or two when you visit Chapman VW Tucson.

GLI Offers High Performance Turbo

If you’re looking to get the most out of your daily drive, it’s essential to take a look at the Jetta GLI. Starting at just a tick over $27K, the GLI has the most horsepower in the vehicle lineup, thanks to a 210 horse 2.0L turbocharged engine. It comes with a 6-speed manual transmission for those who want to get the most out of each time behind the wheel, but a 6-speed DSG automatic is also available. Even with all that horsepower, the VW Jetta GLI still earns a 33-mpg highway rating from the EPA. It comes with a sport suspension setup for supreme handling. The price includes all the popular VW creature comforts, including navigation, a premium Fender audio system, keyless access with push-button start and a multi-function sport steering wheel.

SE Provides Near-hybrid Fuel Numbers

For numbers that rival that of a hybrid without the additional cost, take a look at the Jetta 1.4T SE. Powered by a 1.4L turbocharged engine, this version of the Jetta gets 40 mpg on the highway. It also includes popular VW features such as push-button start and VW’s Car-Net App-Connect so you can hook up your smartphone to play music, listen to podcasts and stay in touch with the outside world. Heated front seats, blind spot monitoring, a sunroof and leatherette seating surfaces are just a few of the amenities that make the SE a popular choice at a starting price of just $20,895.

Sport Model a Celebration of Style

From the halogen fog lights to the rear spoiler, the VW Jetta Sport offers a splash of dash to people looking for a little excitement. A 1.8L turbocharged engine provides the power while still earning 35 mpg on the highway. Sport suspension smooths out the bumps and straightens out the corners, while a multi-function steering wheel puts controls at your fingertips. Test drive the Sport when you visit Chapman VW Tucson.

Looking like a cross between the old micro bus and a modern space ship, the I.D. Buzz electric vehicle from Volkswagen was named the 2017 Concept Truck of the Year at the recent North American Concept Vehicle of the Year festivities. Judges were wowed by the innovation that turns an old design into an energy alternative vehicle that may be showing up in the future on the showroom of Chapman VW Tucson. “We are proud that the I.D. Buzz was chosen as the 2017 Concept Truck of the Year, and that Volkswagen has been given this honor for the fourth time,” according to VW VP Abdallah Shanti. “Volkswagen will lead the world in the shift to electric mobility, and the I.D. Buzz demonstrates the kind of innovative design and engineering that’s a trademark of VWs past and future.”

Demonstrates Electric Power on Larger Vehicle

The I.D. Buzz is similar in size to the now extinct VW Bus, showing that it is possible to use electric power on larger vehicles. Constructed on the new Modular Electric Drive Matrix that VW pioneered, the I.D. Buzz offers plenty of interior room for large families. All the electronics and batteries are located in the floor, allowing for maximum use of interior space. The I.D. Buzz has a maximum range of 270 miles, proving that engineers are continuing to conquer the dreaded “range phobia” that has limited electric vehicle sales in the past. The I.D. Buzz also has other futuristic technologies, including a retractable steering wheel and lighting that actually communicates with pedestrians.

Recognizing Innovative Design

The North American Concept Vehicle of the Year Awards recognize those automakers who take risks to advance the automotive industry in terms of engineering, style and response to consumer needs. Automotive journalists serve as volunteer judges to rate entrants, which must not be scheduled for immediate production. There is a production preview category to award a model that is intended to be manufactured in the near future. The awards are intended to help shape the future of the automotive industry.

Plenty of Innovative Models to Buy Now

While the I.D. Buzz is not yet available for sale at Chapman VW Tucson, there are plenty of innovative models for sale. From the new VW Atlas full-size SUV and the redesigned Tiguan to the Golf Alltrack, VW continues to push the bounds of engineering to provide efficient, powerful vehicles that are fun to drive.
