With more than 9 models available, and dozens of trim levels to choose from, it can be difficult to choose the perfect Volkswagen to suit your needs. That’s why OpenRoad Volkswagen is here to help! We’ve created a series of questions to help you narrow down what VW would perfectly fit your lifestyle and budget – so let’s get started!
How Much Space Do You Need?
Or you a young person who just needs enough space for you and maybe a couple friends? Or are you a growing family that needs enough room for a couple kids? Volkswagen makes vehicles in a variety of sizes, including the new full-sized Atlas SUV. Also consider factors like trunk space and backseat space when deciding how much room you need. Depending on whether you’re regularly transporting children or adults, you’ll also need to think about things like headroom and legroom. Obviously an adult will need more space than a child, so carefully consider whether or not your intended audience will be comfortable riding with you.
What Features Do You Need?
There are some things that we just can’t live without, so think about yours. Perhaps it’s heated seats, a sunroof, or all-wheel drive. Whatever they are, keep this in mind when shopping so you have a better idea what Volkswagen’s or trim levels you’re most interested in. For instance, if all-wheel drive is critical, a Golf Alltrack is a better choice than a Jetta. Also keep in mind that our dealership offers affordable Parts & Accessories that can add extra features to your Volkswagen, such as a bike rack or ski box, which may help you decide whether or not you need to opt for a different model.
What Kind of Driving Do You Do?
Do you drive primarily in the city and need something compact to fit into tight parking spaces? Does your commute involve lots of highway driving where comfort and fuel economy are key? Something like a Golf is better for those of us who live and work in the city, while a Passat is perfect for those of us who spend lots of time out on the road. Also consider the condition of the roads you drive on – those living closer to the Rockies may want something with more ground clearance for snow, while those living closer to Vancouver may want something that’s comfortable in traffic.
How Much Performance Do You Want?
Some of us are happy to sit back and cruise along with traffic, while others want to hear the roar of the engine and feel the rush of the road flying by. OpenRoad Volkswagen offers a number of different models designed to get your blood pumping. These include the classic Golf GTI, as well as its more powerful cousin, the Golf R. Or perhaps your idea of performance is more in terms of passing on our one-lane highways, in which case opting for a more powerful engine than standard may be everything you need.
Want to Stand Out From the Crowd?
Some of us just don’t have what it takes to be a wallflower – and that’s okay! Volkswagens are available in a multitude of colours that range from the understated to the wild. Most VWs are also available with R-Line packages that up their visual flair with bigger wheels and more aggressive styling. A new Tiguan in Habanero Orange Metallic for instance is sure to garner some looks! So whether you’d prefer to blend into the crowd, or stand out from it, there’s sure to be a colour combination that suits your personal sense of style.
Those were just some of the questions you should ask yourself when deciding what kind of Volkswagen you’re interested in. But no matter what you choose, know that OpenRoad Volkswagen has all the brand-new VWs you could ever want – so visit our Burnaby-based dealership today!
