With all the deserved hype for the addition of the full-size Atlas and the redesigned compact Tiguan to the VW SUV lineup, the Touareg may have gotten lost a bit in the shuffle. That’s a shame because the VW Touareg is a sophisticated SUV that lets you haul, load, lift, pack and ride in the lap of ultimate luxury. With a V6 engine that delivers 280 horsepower, the Touareg is rated to tow 7,716 pounds. That’s more than enough for most midsize recreational trailers. The Touareg is also loaded with standard driver assistance features, including an automatic post-collision braking system and an intelligent crash response system that turns off the fuel pump, turns on the hazard lights and unlocks the doors in the event you’re in a crash that activates the air bags. If you’re in the market for a premium SUV, take some time to visit Chapman Volkswagen in Scottsdale and test drive the Touareg.

Get Ready for Your Glamour Shot

If there is one word to describe the feeling one gets when driving a VW Touareg, it just might be “glamorous.” From the available panoramic sunroof to the brilliant Bi-Xenon headlights, the use of premium materials and fine craftsmanship make the Touareg stand out from the rest of the SUV crowd. Front seats have active ventilation to keep you cool in the summertime, while the use of premium leather is as comfortable as your favorite pair of gloves. Heated front seats are standard, but you can choose to get heated seats to keep everyone in the vehicle warm and toasty. Four 12V outlets and one 115 plug-in will keep everyone’s electronics charged at optimal level. A hands-free lift gate provides easy access to the rear area, which adds up to 64 cubic seats once you fold the rear seats down. The 14-way power adjustable front seats have a memory to ensure you are in just the right position every time for the most comfortable trip possible.

Information is Just a Fingertip Away

The VW Touareg offers one of the most sophisticated navigation/infotainment systems available in the automotive industry. The 8-inch touchscreen not only maps your route, but provides both a bird’s eye view and two-dimensional rendering of your trip as it takes you turn-by-turn to your destination. Choose the available Dynaudio premium sound system and you get 620 watts flowing through 10 speakers to embrace you in a blanket of sound you won’t soon forget. Add on the overhead view camera and you’ll be able to see 360 degrees around your Touareg. This not only helps you park, but lessens the chance of hitting someone in your blind spot. See all the features and feel the luxury of the Touareg for yourself when you visit Chapman Volkswagen in Scottsdale.

The English translation of “Volkswagen” is, roughly, “the people’s car.” The popular German automaker is taking that translation one step further by offering “the people first” warranty on most of the 2018 lineup of Volkswagen vehicles. That translates into an industry first bumper-to-bumper coverage that lasts 6 years or 72,000 miles, whichever comes first. “Volkswagen has always been the people’s car, and with the People First Warranty, we’re putting our customers first,” according to VW CEO Hinrich J. Woebcken. “By bringing the right cars at the right time and making the offer very competitive, we believe we’re in the position to grow in the U.S. market.” See the entire VW lineup and take a test drive when you visit Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Expanding the People First Warranty

VW first offered the phenomenal warranty coverage on the new Atlas and Tiguan SUVs. The company has now decided to expand that coverage to the 2018 Beetle, Beetle Convertible, Jetta, Passat, Golf, Golf Alltrack, Golf GTI, Golf R and Golf SportWagen. “Volkswagen has begun to grow again in America, and buyers have welcomed the Atlas and Tiguan into their homes,” said VW Sales VP Derrick Hatami. “Expanding this warranty beyond those two models gives our dealers another competing argument for the rest of our lineup, and we believe it will lead to a reduced overall cost of ownership for buyers.” The warrant covers the engine, transmission and 4Motion all-wheel drive system, along with other components normally covered in bumper-to-bumper warranties. If you decide to sell your vehicle, the coverage transfers to the new owner for up to 6 years and 72,000 miles from when the vehicle was first sold. Most competitors only offer a 3-year and 36,000-mile warranty on new vehicles.

Now’s the Time to Buy or Lease

Along with the announcement of the new People First Warranty, VW has also offered some incentives to help clear out the 2017 models. Qualified lessees can lease a 2017 Jetta S for as little as $119 a month with just $1,999 down during the Volkswagen Sell Down Event. If you prefer to buy, qualified buyers can purchase the Jetta for 0 percent APR and get an additional $1,000 cash back. Great lease and purchase offers are also available on the Beetle, CC, Passat, Golf, Tiguan, Atlas, Touareg and Beetle Convertible.
