Knowing Your VW: Climate Control Videos

We all know that traveling with multiple people can be a challenge when it comes to the cabin temperature. One person prefers the temperature to be warmer, another person wants the A/C on at full blast, and the last person wants something in the middle (are we traveling with Goldilocks the three bears?). With the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, everyone can enjoy their ideal temperature thanks to special climate control settings. Find out how they work by watching the videos below!

In addition to the comfortable passenger space and generous cargo dimensions, the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is quite efficient so you can visit more of our country’s national parks with fewer fill-ups!

What are Volkswagen Muddy Buddy Trunk Liners?

With the spring season finally here and summer approaching very quickly, we are excited to get outside and play again. We are not truly enjoying the great outdoors unless we get wet and dirty in the lake, swamp, or mudholes. Of course, some of the best vehicles that allow us to make the most of the great outdoors are Volkswagens – like the Golf Alltrack, Tiguan, and Atlas. As much as we love the dirt and mud, we do want to keep the interior our Volkswagen clean – and we can do that with the help of available Muddy Buddy trunk liners! Read the rest of this entry »
