Volkswagen or the “People’s Car Company” is a German automaker founded in Berlin, Germany in January 1937. Volkswagen started creating cars as a response to a request from the Germany Government to design affordable yet speedy vehicles for German people. Before that, German car manufacturers produced only luxury models. Nowadays, Volkswagen continues making people’s cars of good quality. Let’s have a look at five high quality Volkswagen’s that definitely impress.
The logical place to start is with the Volkswagen Golf. These hatchbacks are very popular for the peppy engine choices available and their sporty styling. The Golf has been in constant production since it was introduced for the 1974 model year. Currently in the MK7, or seventh generation, the Golf can be powered by a variety of turbocharged petrol engines. Depending on the trim level selected, the Golf can be equipped with a reliable automatic gearbox or a fun-to-drive manual.
Here at BE FORWARD we have dozens of Volkswagen Golf’s on hand. You can view our Golf inventory at this link.
The Volkswagen Polo may be one of the best supermini cars built by the automaker. The Polo debuted in 1975, just one model year after the Golf.
Currently in its fifth generation, the Polo is available with a huge selection of petrol powerplants. Engine choices range from a tough 1,190 cc I3 to a peppy 1,505 cc turbocharged I4. With an awesome twin-charged I4 in the middle, the Polo can be both economical and exhilarating to drive. Having the added bonus of being a supermini that can handle urban traffic may well make the Polo the perfect car.
We currently have more than 50 models of the Volkswagen Polo for you to choose from. You can browse our VW Polo inventory here.
Volkswagen Golf Touran
Compact and supermini cars are not for everyone. Young families often need an MPV to fit their active lives. The Volkswagen Golf Touran may just be that MPV.
The Touran was introduced during the 2003 model year. It is in just its second generation, but it has had a few facelifts along the way. The current generation is powered by three petrol engines; beginning with a reliable 1,197 cc I4 and ending with an economical 1,798 cc I4. The standard gearbox is a five-speed automatic. The second generation offers improved fuel economy and a wide array of advanced driver assistance systems and infotainment options.
