VW’s 2017 lineup of cars and crossovers are sharply styled and German engineered for true driving enjoyment. Which will look best in your driveway? Read on.

Small and Sassy

An iconic ride leads Volkswagen’s pack of compact cars for 2017 as the famed Beetle returns, combining classic styling elements with thoroughly modern technology. Available in coupe and convertible versions, a new limited-edition Pink Beetle features an eye popping Fresh Fuchsia Metallic exterior with pink club cloth seats on the inside.

The Golf hatchback continues to combine practicality with lively driving dynamics, and offers a new Wolfsburg Edition for 2017 that packs a long list of standard features at an affordable price, including a blind spot warning system and forward auto-braking. For added utility, a new Golf Alltrack model combines VW’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive (AWD) for added foul-weather traction and rugged styling cues to the ultra-practical Golf Sportwagen as a burly and beefy SUV alternative.

Long the enthusiast’s favorite, the Golf GTI continues to light up the pavement in two-and four-door versions with a 220-horsepower turbocharged engine and quicker cornering abilities. The “pocket rocket” Golf R model ups the ante with a track-friendly 292 horsepower (0-60 mph in under five seconds!), AWD and assorted performance-minded upgrades.

Sharp Dressed Sedans

For those who instead prefer a closed trunk instead of a hatchback, the compact VW Jetta sedan continues to offer more rear-seat legroom than many far larger cars, with a sporty demeanor that enlivens even around-town errands. That’s especially true with the top GLI version that packs a potent 210-horsepower turbo-four engine and can give some costlier luxury-branded sport sedans a run for the money.

The midsize Passat sedan offers all that and more-- interior room, that is -- with one of the most spacious back seats this side of a Bentley. It becomes safer for 2017 with a forward collision warning system and auto braking added across the line. Choose the top SEL model for the best performance in the line with a strong and smooth 280-horsepower V6 under the hood.

Those looking for a more expressively cast sedan should consider the midsize Volkswagen CC, which comes wrapped in a comely “four-door coupe-like” profile and rides on a sport-tuned suspension for athletic performance. A 200-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine is standard. The top R-Line Executive model includes Adaptive Cruise Control to maintain both a set speed and distance from traffic, and Forward Collision Warning with auto-braking and Lane Change Assist blind-spot warning to help a driver avoid getting into crashes.

Capable Crossovers

The VW Tiguan is already one of the most fun-to-drive compact crossover SUVs that flavors its underlying practicality with a sense of adventure. The 2017 model underscores its value with added features that include the automaker’s Composition Media infotainment system with USB, Bluetooth and easy app connections.  An energetic 200-horsepower engine is standard with AWD optional for added grip on wet or snowy roads.

Finally, for those who prefer to live large, the midsize Touraeg crossover handles easily and rides smoothly, and treats five passengers to a roomy and nicely finished interior. A new feature-packed Wolfsburg Edition adds brushed aluminum and stainless steel interior trim for a richer look and feel. AWD is standard, with newly added items including several of the latest accident-avoidance systems for added safety and a heated steering wheel for added luxury.
