Posts Tagged ‘VW Golf GTI’, one of the automotive industry’s leading sources of consumer information, has honored Volkswagen by naming the full-size Atlas SUV as the Best of 2018 and the Golf GTI as the car of the year that’s most fun to drive. “Big is back, and Volkswagen has brought to market its biggest SUV ever, the 2018 Atlas. With three rows of seating that are incredibly flexible, it’s possible to fit seven full-sized adults in the Atlas with no complaints about comfort from anyone,” according to the website’s editor-in-chief, Jennifer Newman. She went on to praise the advanced technology and creature comforts that make the Atlas the perfect interpretation of the American SUV, and had similar high praise for the VW Golf GTI. “Sports cars are a blast, but more often than not, drivers trade everyday comfort for behind-the-wheel thrills,” she said. “There are no trade-offs with the GTI, however; Volkswagen’s hatchback excels for its blend of performance, comfort and refinement.” See both the Atlas and GTI when you take a test drive at Chapman VW Tucson.

Good Things Come in Big Packages

The VW Atlas was introduced to much fanfare in the spring of 2017. The company’s bet that American consumers would flock to a well-designed large SUV has paid off in spades, keeping workers at the Chattanooga, Tennessee plant busy to meet demand. With features like a huge panoramic sunroof that lets the outdoors in, a bold design from every angle and the satisfying “thud” when you close a door that comes from German engineering, the Atlas is the new bully on the block. When you’re not hauling people around, fold the rear seats down for nearly 100 cubic feet of cargo space. This is no white, windowless van, however. The driver and passengers are always kept comfortable with little touches such as quilted seating surfaces and the use of upscale materials.

Good Things Come in Little Packages

If you like your hatchback with a little hot sauce on the side, you are going to love the VW Golf GTI. Now in its seventh generation, the GTI is a modern marvel of engineering, delivering raw power and phenomenal handling to driving enthusiasts around the world. A standard 220 horsepower turbocharged engine delivers the oomph and a sports suspension with adaptive chassis control helps you keep it on the road. Selectable driving modes allow you to tune up the sportiness or comfort, depending on your mood. Available paddle shifters let you power through the gears without ever taking your hands off the wheel. Both the Atlas and Golf GTI come with the industry’s best warranty, covering 6 years or up to 72,000 miles. See why they were named the best in their class when you visit Chapman VW Tucson.

The VW Golf GTI is the hot hatchback that not only maneuvers nimbly through city traffic, but is a hoot to drive out on the open road. Now in its seventh generation, the combination of a sport suspension, turbocharged 2.0L engine and your choice of a 6-speed automatic or manual transmission makes this athletic five-door sport machine the envy of others on the road. The Golf GTI is consistently one of the best-reviewed, and most affordable, sports cars on the planet. See yours today and take a test drive at Chapman VW Tucson.

2.0L Motor Both Powerful and Efficient

There’s no turbo lag when you tromp on the accelerator of the Golf GTI as the 2.0L engine kicks in with more than 200 horsepower and a scintillating 258 pound-feet of torque. Unlike other turbos, when you finally do stop at a gas station you only need to use regular unleaded fuel in your new GTI. Gas stations will be the least of your worries, as this peppy sports machine earns a very efficient 34 mpg out on the highway.

Choose from Four Different Models

The VW Golf GTI offers four different models for various needs and budgets. The base model is the S which includes a driving mode selector and the VW-Car-Net App Connect in its $25,595 starting price. Move up just a bit to the sport model and you not only get 20 extra horsepower, but also upgraded brakes, Bi-Xenon headlamps and keyless access with push button start. The SE, starting at just over $30,000, delivers a Fender Premium Audio System and leather seats. The Autobahn model, named for the famous German high-speed highway, is the top of the mark, with adaptive chassis control, touchscreen navigation and a 12-way power driver’s seat. All the Golf GTI models are equipped with the same dynamic chassis delivering superb control for aggressive conditions.

Hot Hatch Outfitted for Safety

With B-pillars made from advanced thermoform steel and a rigid safety cage that directs energy away from the cockpit in the event of a crash, the VW Golf GTI is engineered for safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded the GTI its highest 5-star rating, while the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the vehicle a Top Safety Pick. Every GTI model includes an automatic post-collision braking system that helps bring you car to a stop in the event of a wreck, keep the damage to a minimum.
