Volkswagen Changes in 2017
There’s a lot of new changes coming down the pipeline for Volkswagen in 2017, and as a fan of the brand it makes sense to stay on top of what’s coming up. Here’s an overview of what enhancements you’ll see in the Volkswagen lineup, what’s pretty much staying the same and what new releases are going to come out in 2018.
The Volkswagen Golf is going to benefit from a bunch of new changes this year, making it worth taking a look at if you’re planning on getting a new compact vehicle. The car will be offered with a Wolfsburg Edition trim. The GTI variation will now come with the Sport trim as well, giving you more power options to choose from. The e-Golf is receiving more power and a range enhancement and the Golf model is going to receive a whole host of updates in 2018 with an improved model.
The Volkswagen Beetle is always one of the more reserved vehicles that don’t receive too many changes in a model year. This year a Pink limited edition Beetle is being added for buyers to consider. There’s also going to be more aggressive bumpers on the 1.8T models of the Beetle.
The Tiguan gets a whole host of changes for the 2017 year of the vehicle. It will now come standard with a four-cylinder turbocharged engine across the whole range of vehicle. There’s a Wolfsburg and Sport trim of the vehicle available now, additional standard features were added to the vehicle and both the R-Line and SE trims were removed entirely.
While many VW vehicles are sitting still, the Passat is receiving a host of changes. The R-Line trim is getting more standard features, and both auto braking and forward collision warning are becoming standard throughout the lineup.
The Touareg is a popular SUV sold by Volkswagen and it’s getting some notable changes in 2017. For starters there will no longer be a Lux trim version of the vehicle, and a Wolfsburg trim option has been added. Just like the Passat it’s getting standard auto braking and forward collision warning. The vehicle will also be completely redesigned for the 2018 model year, so keep your eyes opened for that.
Overall this is a year for some notable changes to the Volkswagen lineup, but the 2018 model year is the one with the most dramatic changes on the way. There will be a new model for the Touareg, Tiguan, and the Golf.
