The 2020 VW Golf Spied In Person!!

By cmathias | Posted in VW Model News on Wednesday, March 20th, 2019 at 9:58 AM

The 2020 VW Golf was spied in person the other day! What do you think of it? VW announced plans to start in June, and from the looks of the photo, it seems to have an Audi type feel. According to Motor1: “Although not noticeable, a minor bump in size is expected from the eighth generation, which corroborated with better packaging enabled by the updated MQB platform, should translate into a more spacious interior. The revised hardware might enable a minor weight loss, although nothing to write home about”

By cmathias | Posted in Dealer Information, VW Model News on Monday, February 18th, 2019 at 5:38 PM

It’s here, the 2019 Final Edition VW Beetle is prominently displayed in our showroom here at Steet Ponte VW! The details are incredible; we can’t help but admire them while we walk by every day! From the sleek black exterior, to the luxurious quilted leather seats (ladies, does this remind you of a very famous designer purse that rhymes with Banel?!) The ivory dashboard features and detailed wheels are the perfect finishing touches to the iconic Volkswagen model. We will be sad to see this go, but know that this gorgeous bug needs to go to a good home! Stop down for a test drive (yes, they do surprisingly great in the snow,) or contact us for more information!

VW Golf Racecar Review!

By cmathias | Posted in News, Volkswagen, VW Model News on Saturday, December 15th, 2018 at 9:50 AM

A compact car that will knock your socks off, is what is being said about the VW Golf R, and from what we’ve read we couldn’t agree more!

 

While the Type R is clearly a Golf on the outside, it sits lower than its siblings with all-around aerodynamic treatment and special badges. Four large tailpipes under the rear bumper of the Golf mimic a Corvette exhaust design. What impressed us with the Golf R’s performance is its firm connection with the road. It feels tight off the line or while winding around curvy pavement. We were smitten with the manual transmission and its drive-ability in city traffic as well as the control it provides under power.

Upgraded leather and heated seats, emergency braking, and great fuel economy makes us excited to say this car is unparalleled. Read the full review here!
