Atlas Awarded Five-star Safety Rating

The new VW Atlas, the next big thing in the SUV market, has another pair of trophies for its award shelf. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Atlas it’s top five-star safety rating after earning almost perfect scores in all the government tests. When you add that to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s “Top Safety Pick” honor, you know the Atlas is one of the safest SUVs on the road. Sales have been strong for the Atlas in its first few months on the market and should grow even stronger with these two important designations. See the Atlas and take a test drive when you visit Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Plenty of Room in Spacious Interior

The Atlas is plenty big for you and six members of your family, friends or office mates to stretch out in without bumping knees or elbows. Three rows of plush, comfortable seats mean you’ll travel in comfort, whether you’re just making a morning coffee run or taking the family to a theme park on a summer vacation. Need to haul a piece of furniture home? Just fold the second and third row seats down and the Atlas turns into the world’s most sophisticated cargo van, offering almost 100 cubic feet of space for the occasional trip to the big box store. If you don’t need all that seating, you can opt for second row captain’s chairs that deliver even more space for each passenger. Getting into the third row doesn’t require an advanced engineering degree. You just fold the second row forward with one hand and it creates easy access.

Plenty of Power for All Your Needs

Whether you’re taking the crew up to the mountains for an art festival or towing the boat to a nearby lake, the Atlas has the power and performance to get the job done. When properly equipped, the Atlas offers a 5,000-pound towing capacity, or more than enough for most recreational needs. Opt for the 4MOTION all-wheel drive and you can switch between four different driving modes to fit the current road (or off-road) conditions. Whether you choose the standard 2.0L turbocharged engine or the larger 3.6L V6, the Atlas will have the power to get the job done. The smaller engine still delivers 235 horsepower while earning 26 mpg on the highway. The V6 only sacrifices 1 mpg on the highway rating while improving the horsepower to a healthy 276.

Best Warranty in the Business

VW is so confident in the quality of the build and components of the new Atlas that it offers the best bumper-to-bumper warranty in the business. With 6 years and 72,000 miles of coverage, that’s double the warranty of most competitors. The warranty also transfers if you sell the Atlas, adding to the resale value.

New Electric Bus Coming in Just Four Years

Fresh off the success of winning the concept truck of the year and buoyed by the response from consumers, Volkswagen executives recently announced they are going to put the I.D. BUZZ electric van into production by 2022. Reminding nostalgic buyers of the beloved VW microbus, the I.D. BUZZ shows the spirit that made Volkswagen such a popular brand in America. “After the presentations at the global motor shows in Detroit and Geneva, we received a large number of letters and emails from customers who said, ‘please build this car,’” according to Dr. Herbert Diess, VW CEO. “The microbus has long been a part of the California lifestyle. Now we’re bringing it back by reinventing it as an electric vehicle.” Stay in touch with Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale to see the progress of bringing the iconic microbus back to life.

I.D. Buzz Design Allows for Massive Interior

With the batteries mounted in the floor and the electronic drive components taking limited space, the interior of the I.D. BUZZ is expected to be enormous. “The vehicle looks like a compact commercial van on the outside, even though it offers the generous interior space of a large SUV,” said Dr. Diess. The I.D. BUZZ will make good use of that room, offering both a version for hauling people and one for hauling cargo. “Along with a minibus version, we’ll also be offering an I.D. BUZZ Cargo variant for zero emissions delivery of goods,” said VW commercial vehicle boss Dr. Eckhard Scholz. “With Level 3 autonomous capability, this is an ideal concept for an electric van, particularly for delivering packages and goods to the inner cities.”

Perfect Balance Between Past and Future

More than 70 years will have passed between the introduction of the Microbus and the I.D. BUZZ by the time the latest version rolls off the production floor. The new model pays homage to the genes of the original, offering maximum use of space on a small footprint. Expect a lot of new technology in the I.D. BUZZ, including quick-change seating, automated driving and tons of connectivity with the outside world. “We are delighted that our parent company has taken the decision to produce the I.D. BUZZ. This vehicle is the perfect balance between emotion, usability and sustainability, while also showcasing our technological leadership,” according to Hinrich J. Woebcken, CEO of VW North America. “The high seating position, cargo capacity, overall versatility and all-wheel drive option packaged into such an appealing design is just what our customers want from us. And it’s the perfect fit for the zero-emissions American lifestyle.” There are still a few years before the I.D. BUZZ shows up on the showroom floor at Chapman Volkswagen, but now’s a good opportunity to examine the entire VW lineup and see all the innovations created by German engineering.

With a starting sticker price of just $21,995, the new VW Tiguan Limited trim package offers a number of popular features at a deep discount. The Tiguan Limited comes with 16-inch wheels, a color infotainment system that offers Bluetooth connectivity and a rearview camera. For a little bit more, you can all-wheel drive and upgraded wheels. Choose the Premium Package and VW provides a larger infotainment screen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also includes a leather covered steering wheel with multifunction controls, keyless access, push-button ignition and cruise control. Check in at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale to test drive the redesigned Tiguan, VW’s entry into the subcompact SUV market.

Offers Spacious Seating for Five Adults

The VW Tiguan was redesigned for 2018 on a longer wheelbase chassis. The result is comfortable seating for five adults, with wide door frames offering easy access to the second row. There’s plenty of leg and headroom for everyone in the new Tiguan. The adjustable 40/20/40 back seat makes configuring the interior to haul awkward cargo a snap. Just fold the second-row seats down and you have an impressive 56.1 cubic feet. The front passenger seat folds flat forward, allowing room for those extra-long items, such as skis and lumber. VW engineers thought of everything to make transporting items easier, including a high-lifting rear tailgate to allow plenty of room to load bulky items.

Four-cylinder Delivers Power and Economy

Volkswagen outfits the new Tiguan with a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder motor that not only earns 27 mpg on the highway, but also produces 184 horsepower and a smile-inducing 221 pound-feet of torque. The result of all that power, when paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, is that you get the most power and efficiency from every shift. All you have to do is sit back and step on the gas and let the marvel of German engineering take over as you smoothly merge onto busy freeways or get around large trucks ahead of oncoming traffic. Put the transmission in Tiptronic mode, and  take over the shifting duties, letting you enjoy the driving experience even more.

VW Digital Cockpit Puts Info Where You Need It

The 12.3-inch VW Digital Cockpit puts all the important vehicle information where you need it, right in your line of sight. You can choose the information you want displayed, including speed, RPMs, temperature and time, or you can switch to navigation mode for a wide map detailing where you’re going and how you’re going to get there. The Tiguan Limited model also features the Intelligent Crash Response System that senses a collision and then shuts off the fuel, unlocks all the doors and turns on the hazard lights once the airbags fire. Check out the entire VW Tiguan lineup today and take a test drive when you visit Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Atlas Earns Top Safety Pick Rating

The new VW Atlas, a behemoth in the full-size SUV market, was recently awarded the Top Safety Pick ranking from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). When equipped with forward collision warning and autonomous emergency braking, the new Atlas scored “Good” ratings in five test categories. “Volkswagen’s commitment to safety and driver assistance technology is unwavering. We take great responsibility to ensure our driver assistance technologies get smarter,” according to VW VP Hendrik Muth. “The Atlas is an example of our ongoing commitment to offering these features, and we are proud it has been recognized as an IIHS 2017 Top Safety Pick.” The new VW Atlas is in stock and ready to test drive today at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Atlas Offers Post Collision Braking

Based on the premise that a collision is a series of ongoing events and not a single blow, VW offers automatic post-collision braking on all trim levels of the new Atlas. The system detects a primary collision and then automatically applies the brakes, reducing the chance of further damage. The VW Atlas also offers other automatic driver assistance systems, including lane departure warning, front and rear park distance control, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and parking steering assistant. An overhead view camera provides a 360-degree view around your vehicle, lessening the chance you’ll run over any hidden obstacles.

Personalize Your Information Display

The Atlas offers the 12.3 inch VW Digital Cockpit, which personalizes important vehicle information for a wide variety of settings. You can store four different profiles in memory, so it always displays your selected information at the touch of a button. Choose the wide map navigation option and your route and destination are displayed widely in your field of view, allowing you to stay focused on the road while you concentrate on not getting lost. The VW color touchscreen sound system puts all your audio controls and communication needs at a touch of the finger away. Connect it to your smartphone to stream your favorite music or podcasts, or take advantage of a free three-month SiriusXM satellite radio connection for a world of entertainment.

Choice of Two Engines

Right now, the only choice for the VW Atlas is a powerful 276 horsepower V6 that offers 5,000 pounds of towing capacity while still earning 25 mpg on the highway. A 2.0L turbocharged engine is coming later this year, with a little less horsepower but greater efficiency. Test drive the new VW Atlas today when you visit Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Volkswagen Sales on the Rise

Buoyed by the release of the new full-size Atlas and compact Tiguan SUVs, Volkswagen enjoyed a 4 percent increase in June sales from the previous year. The company sold 512,700 vehicles worldwide in June, with especially strong sales in the USA, China and South America. “The Volkswagen brand saw worldwide deliveries increase in June as well as overall for the first half of the year and recorded strong growth in China and other key regions,” according to Jurgen Stackmann, VW board member. “In the USA, the Atlas got off to a successful start in the first two months of sales and helped the brand outpace market growth.” See the new Atlas, redesigned Tiguan and the entire VW lineup at Chapman Volkswagen in Scottsdale.

New Tiguan an Affordable Compact SUV with Plenty of Room

The VW Tiguan has been completely redesigned for 2018, offering more room and four different trim packages to entice a wide variety of buyers. Starting at just $25,345 for the S model, the Tiguan comes with front wheel drive and a peppy turbocharged 2.0L TSI motor. For about $1,300 more, you can get the patented VW 4Motion all-wheel drive system that turns this daily commuter into a capable off-road machine. The SE model adds an upgraded infotainment system, keyless access with push-button start and dual zone climate control to the equation. This is also where you start to get the advanced VW driver assistance safety features, including forward collision warning and blind spot monitoring. You get even more driver assistance technology with the SEL trim package, as well as navigation, a power lift gate, sunroof and remote start. The SEL Premium is the top of the line and includes adaptive headlights, rain-sensing wipers, leather seats and a whole host of other sophisticated features.

Atlas Has the Size Your Family Needs

The 2018 VW Atlas delivers the size and sophistication large families desire to solve all their daily transportation needs. With five different trim levels and two engine choices, the Atlas lineup is designed to appeal to a wide variety of consumers who need both room and power. Available with an efficient 2.0L engine, the Atlas TSI S has LED headlights and daytime running lights, a rearview camera and a 6.5-inch color touchscreen to control your infotainment and communication requirements.

Now through July 31st, qualified lessees can lease the Golf SportWagen for just $219 a month for 36 months.

VW Takes Aim at Compact SUV Market

With a longer wheelbase that creates more interior space for both cargo and people, the 2018 VW Tiguan is painting a bullseye on the American compact SUV market. One of the main complaints of the compact SUVs is that they are, well, small. Although they technically will hold four to five adults, riding in the back seat sometimes requires the ability of a contortionist to adapt to the space. The new VW Tiguan is almost 11 inches longer than the previous version, creating more leg room and giving the ability for adults to enter and exit the rear seating area without folding themselves in half. See the new Tiguan for yourself when it comes to Chapman Volkswagen later this summer.

Evolution of Timeless Design Delivers Refined Appearance

The first thing you’re sure to like about the new VW Tiguan is the sophisticated appearance that shows off modern lines and a sculptured, muscular look. The use of a new platform allows for a lower and wider stance, creating both a dynamic driving experience due to the low center of gravity and a design that turns heads. All the trim packages include LED running lights, LED taillights and fog lights that illuminate the way around corners. Heated exterior mirrors include turn signal indicators. Both the S and SE trim package come with 17-inch wheels. When you step up to the SEL model you get 18-inch wheels, while the SEL Premium and R-Line packages come with 19-inch wheels.

Versatile Seating Sets Tiguan Apart

Slide into the driver’s seat of the new VW Tiguan and you’ll be impressed by the thoughtful layout of all the controls. Everything’s within an easy reach, allowing you to focus on the road rather than look at how to turn the volume up on the radio. All the front wheel drive Tiguan models have three rows of seats. The second row is the result of some clever engineering that allows it to recline, slide forwards and backwards, fold completely down or split 40/20/40. This not only makes entering the third row easier, but makes for quick configuration when hauling large or awkward items.

MBII Infotainment System Offers Tons of Features

VW’s MBII infotainment system offers the most comprehensive grouping of features available from any automaker. It comes standard in every VW Tiguan with a number of different multimedia interfaces, Bluetooth connectivity and a rearview camera. From the SE model on up, buyers will receive a glass 8-inch touchscreen with at least two USB ports, a JPG viewer and SiriusXM subscription that’s free for three months. Choose the SEL Premium package and you’ll get a premium Fender audio system that delivers 480 watts through a 12-channel amplifier.

Comes with 6-year Warranty

One of the best features of the new VW Tiguan, and the item that shows the company’s confidence in this new product, is a 6-year, 72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. That’s three more years and double the miles of coverage from most competitors. Stay in touch with Chapman Volkswagen to see when the new Tiguan will be available for a test drive.

New Tiguan Features Powerful 2.0L Engine

Utilizing new technology that delivers better performance and efficiency, the four-cylinder EA888 engine that powers the new 2018 Tiguan is truly a modern marvel. As VW continues to decrease the size of their engines without sacrificing power, drivers can expect greater fuel mileage and longer engine life. VW engineers concentrated on creating a new combustion cycle that works best in the range of driving most often used by consumers. By closing the intake valves much earlier than normal, the new engine creates a longer combustion cycle and a more efficient fuel/air mix. The result is a 200-horsepower engine that has plenty of torque and still delivers 24 mpg on the highway.

Choose From Four Models

When the 2018 VW Tiguan arrives at Chapman Volkswagen, you’ll have four different models from which to choose. The Tiguan S front-wheel drive model starts at just a tick more than $25,000, and includes alloy wheels, LED running lights, halogen headlamps and LED taillights. You’ll also get a rearview camera, heated side mirrors and a 6.5-inch color touchscreen infotainment center. Step up to the SE and you get a larger touchscreen with voice control and three additional USB ports, keyless access, push-button start, dual zone climate control, leatherette seating surfaces and a suite of driver assistance features. The SEL adds even more goodies to the package, with 18-inch alloy wheels, navigation, remote start, power lift gate and panoramic sunroof. The SEL Premium is the top-of-the line, adding features such as 19-inch wheels, LED headlights with adaptive lighting (it goes around corners), rain sensing windshield wipers, leather seats and a heated steering wheel. All models come with your choice of front-wheel or 4Motion all-wheel drive.

Industry’s Best Warranty

The VW Tiguan offers a six-year/72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, the best in the automotive industry. While other companies leave you on your own for repairs after 36 months, the VW Tiguan major and minor components are covered for another three full years. With the cost of repairs skyrocketing due to the complex technology of today’s automobiles, that can mean thousands of dollars saved over the life of the vehicle.

Custom Packages Available

When you look over the new Tiguan inventory at Chapman Volkswagen, make sure and ask about all the different custom packages available. Third-row seating is standard on all the front-wheel drive models, but is an option on the 4Motion all-wheel drive units. You can add Driver Assistance features such as forward collision warning and pedestrian monitoring to the S trim package for just $850. A panoramic sunroof is an available option on the SE trim for $1,200. If you desire a more sporty look and parking assistance, make sure and inquire about the R-Line package, which is an option on the SEL and SEL Premium models.

KBB Puts Jetta on Coolest Cars List

Sometimes to feel cool is to be cool, and you’re bound to be one of the coolest cats on the block when you come home in your new 2017 Volkswagen Jetta. The Jetta made the Kelley Blue Book list of “10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000,” proving that you don’t have to spend a lot of dough to make a statement. Scoring high in both the fun and looks department, the VW Jetta is ready for a test drive today at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale. Hurry in to take advantage of Memorial Day specials that let you lease a Jetta for as little as $119 a month.

Jetta is VW’s ‘Heart and Soul’

“Volkswagen is honored to receive this award from Kelley Blue Book,” said VW Senior VP Hendrik Muth. “The Jetta represents the heart and soul of Volkswagen, with its sporty driving dynamics and high-quality workmanship.” Jetta remains the best-selling Volkswagen in America, with an affordable price and tons of standard equipment in a simplified lineup. With technology such as a premium color multi-function trip computer, a slew of driver assistance safety features and and infotainment system that features VW Car-Net to both guide and inform you and your passengers, the 2017 VW Jetta sets a high bar for German engineering.

Pick Your Performance

The VW Jetta offers three different engines that deliver a variety of horsepower and gas mileage, but all three have a heaping helping of “fun” that put the Jetta on the coolest cars list. Chose the standard 1.4L turbo and you get 150 horsepower, 184 pound-feet of torque and a hybrid-like 40 mpg on the highway. Move up just a bit to the 1.8L turbo and the highway mileage drops a smidge to 35, but the horsepower increases to 170. The 2.0L turbocharged engine is the largest option, producing 210 horsepower and a remarkable 33 mpg on the highway.

Safety at the Heart of the New Jetta

With the best possible five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Top Safety Pick honors from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the VW Jetta is one of the safest choices to transport all your precious cargo. A German-engineered safety cage features front and rear crumple zones to direct the energy away from the passengers in the event of a crash. A liberal use of high-strength steel helps enhance the vehicle’s sturdiness, which also improves handling. The VW Jetta comes in five different trim levels, starting with the S at just $17,895. Check out the entire inventory and take a test drive today at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.

Manual Transmission VWs Have Many Benefits

If you’re of a certain age, you remember that it was a big deal when your father (or mother) taught you how to drive a stick. The ability to deftly move between three different pedals and smoothly transition from one gear to another was a real rite of passage into adulthood. According to government data, the day of the stick shift is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Just 3.1 percent of all new vehicles delivered in the U.S. had a true manual gear shifter last year. Volkswagen is attempting to reverse that trend and bring the excitement back to driving with vehicles such as the 2017 VW Golf Alltrack.

Now in Stock at Chapman

Now in stock at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale, the VW Golf Alltrack comes with all-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission. Aside from the manual transmission’s ability to repel car theft, there are other reasons to drive a stick according to Megan Garbis, VW Golf product manager for the U.S. The manual shifter “gives you a strong connection with the road and the vehicle,” Garbis noted. “A lot of our owners care about driving, and coming out of a Jetta or other Golf, we sant to give them as much as possible without compromise.”

You Can Get an Automatic

Of course, for those who are so inclined to let the car do the brunt of the work, the Alltrack comes with the option of a six-speed automatic transmission with Sport mode. Whether you choose an automatic or manual, strongly consider the $845 Driver Assistance package that includes forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking with front assist, and park distance control. The Golf Alltrack comes in three different trim levels starting at a suggested retail price of just $25,850. All include the patented VW 4MOTION all-wheel drive system that transfers torque from the front to rear axle as needed. Features like a panoramic sunroof, keyless access, navigation and leatherette seating surfaces are available as you move up the ladder in price.

4MOTION Won’t Leave You High and Dry

Along with increased ground clearance, the VW Golf Alltrack comes with the innovative 4MOTION all-wheel drive system that automatically adapts to changing road – or trail – conditions. You won’t be shy about taking this juggernaut off-road, as the all-wheel drive system works in conjunction with an electronic differential lock to make sure you can conquer the beaten path or power through a bout with inclement weather. The 1.8L TSI turbocharged engine provides plenty of power, along with earning a highway rating of 32 mpg from the EPA. For a fun, stylish off-road vehicle that doubles as the perfect commuter, check out the 2017 VW Golf Alltrack today at Chapman Volkswagen Scottsdale.
