These turbocharged engines use direct injection to provide only the necessary amount of fuel for your desired performance.Take efficiency a step further with the Volkswagen Hybrid engines. Combined with an electric motor, you enjoy the greatest fuel economy possible. When using only the electric motor, the vehicle produces no emissions while recharging every time you put your foot on the brake.


Every drive is a safer drive with the latest equipment and features in place to keep you on the road. Multiple systems are in place to assist the driver in monitoring road conditions and avoiding a collision. For instance, the Multi Collision Brake helps reduce the likelihood of a second collision after an initial one occurs. Brakes are applied to help reduce the severity of impact. Lane assist ensures you don't veer out of your lane by sounding an alert if the camera module recognizes that you have drifted over into another lane unintentionally.

Think Blue

While most manufacturers focus on helping the environment by driving green, Volkswagen wants to put fun in the mix through driving blue. BlueMotion technologies are includes in all VW models, which help make your vehicle more efficient while still being fun to drive. For example, start-stop technology shuts off the engine when you are stopped and turns it back on when you are ready to accelerate. Since it is automatic, you don't even have to think about it. The design ensures the vehicle is ready to move when you are.

Braking your vehicle becomes even more important with the use of regenerative braking.
