The 2019 VW Jetta at Steet Ponte VW!

By cmathias | Posted in Volkswagen on Thursday, October 3rd, 2019 at 5:04 PM

Betta Getta Jetta in Tornado Red  🔥 This one has cross traffic alert, backup camera, sunroof, and is just $24,289 MSRP! Rather than adding needless flash, the Jetta has been redesigned for a tasteful, more premium look and feel. One quick glance is all it takes to appreciate the result. It’s sportier and sleeker, with a sculpted hood that makes a statement without screaming. The overall effect stands out anywhere.

Nothing like an available power panoramic sunroof that tilts and slides to shine a little natural light on your drive. And this year, it’s even larger. We call it a driver-focused interior. You’ll call it the “I can’t believe I get all this cool stuff interior.” Either way, you’ll wish you had a longer commute.

Stop down and see why our customers always say, “It’s so easy to do business at Steet Ponte VW!”

We Spy: the VW Tarek Crossover?

By cmathias | Posted in VW Model News on Friday, August 2nd, 2019 at 12:54 AM

The (alleged) VW Tarek Crossover was spotted test driving in South America recently, and we have to say, we’re big fans! It’s supposed to come to North America by the end of 2021, and we can’t wait for this rugged crossover to hit the roads here. It seems to look like a larger version of the T-Cross, crossover, and has already been for sale in China. Its competition will be the Jeep Compass. Maybe we’re biased, but we like this one a lot better 😉
