The hardest thing about purchasing a Volkswagen vehicle is deciding which one to get. The options are just excessive, but not unless you narrow down your choices down by size. For this comparison, we at Desjardins Volkswagen narrowed down our searches between the Volkswagen Golf, Jetta, and Tiguan. This way, you get a better understanding of each vehicle class, while also exploring their different features.
This compact-sized vehicle has a lot to offer, combining turbo-charged performance with mix-and-match versatility and customization. It’s packed with technology, especially with its App-Connect system. This allows you access to your music, mapping, messaging, and more hands-free features using voice command. With its 60/40 split seating, front centre armrest, and adjustable cargo floor, driving the Volkswagen Golf never feels repetitive. You have plenty of options to choose from with the way you want to drive it. From parties, to bringing home a 50” TV, you name it! Just fold the seats for more space. And with the lightweight 1.8L TSI engine, you not only get spirited and sporty performance, but great fuel efficiency as well. If you’re looking for a compact-sized vehicle that’s efficient, versatile, and packed with great smartphone integration, then the Golf should be for you.
So what sets this sedan apart from the rest? The Volkswagen Jetta is packed with even more features and technology—and then some! On top of the standard App-Connect system and rear-view camera, a keyless entry push-start button is available for starting your vehicle. There’s no need to ruffle your pocket or purse; just push and go. On top of its fuel-efficient 1.4L TSI engine, an available 6-speed automatic transmission provides smooth and quiet cruising in the city and on the highway. For 2018, the Jetta updates and re-imagines its design. With side mirror signals, bi-xenon headlights, LED running lights, and available climatronic temperature control, the Jetta advances to fit the modern age. The Volkswagen Jetta is definitely for more than just a one-man drive. If you’ve got extra friends and family you wanna cruise around with aside from the morning commute, then maybe the Jetta is for you.
For the SUV portion of this comparison, the Volkswagen Tiguan best exemplifies the company’s capabilities for manufacturing a full-sized vehicle. It can conquer mud, sleet, snow, and other road conditions with available 4MOTION All-Wheel Drive, giving you added traction and easy driving for the family. The available driving profile selection also lets you access the digital cockpit to activate your personalized driving preferences, up to 4 drivers. From mirror positions, climate controls, favorite radio stations, and more. Built for SUV capability, the Tiguan provides available 3rd-row seating, power liftgate, and 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats. You’re getting everything an SUV has to offer with additional Volkswagen flair.
