2017 Volkswagen Beetle

It's hard to approach the status of the Beetle. Only a couple of cars on the road have similar lifetime sales numbers and few have the instantly recognizable shape of the Beetle. Introduced in 2012, the third generation is longer, wider and has an overall more aggressive look. Modern Beetles are front wheel drive with the engine in front. A large hatchback and fold-down rear seat fill the space where the engine used to be. Beetle powertrains include an inline five-cylinder engine and a turbocharged four cylinder. The turbocharged Beetle with 200-horsepower and a six-speed dual clutch transmission should be quick enough to turn some heads. In today's market, Scion, Hyundai, and Kia provide the kind of value that the original Beetle was known for, but a unique combination of heritage, style, utility, and fuel economy should help keep the Beetle on some shopping lists.

2017 Volkswagen CC

The CC is a stylish four-door serving as Volkswagen's top car model in the United States. The CC is related to the 2006-2010 Passat so it is roughly equivalent to a midsize sedan. By comparison, the sleek roofline of the CC is 2-3 inches lower than that of Passat. Beginning with the 2013 model, the interior has seating for five passengers. CC is offered in four trim levels, three of which are front-wheel-drive with a 2.0l turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The top model includes Volkswagen's 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system and their narrow-angle V6 engine. With prices starting at around $30,000, the CC is an interesting alternative to the usual conservative mid-sized sedan.

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan

Volkswagen's first compact SUV, the Tiguan takes on the segment popularized by the Honda CR-V. This four-door, five-passenger SUV is sized at the smaller end of the segment with proportions similar to the Kia Sportage. The standard engine is Volkswagen's, 2.0l turbocharged four-cylinder rated at 200-bhp. This exceeds the output of other larger displacement four-cylinders in the segment, but falls short of the V6 power offered in some models. Fuel economy is average at 21/27 for AWD models. The Tiguan is offered in three trim levels ranging from the base S model to the top SEL model. The base S model is well equipped, but includes steel wheels with wheel covers on the least expensive model. The SE trim level adds simulated leather seating and a premium audio system. The top SEL trim level includes real leather seating, HID headlights, automatic climate control and keyless operation. All-wheel-drive is about a $2000 option on all trim levels. With pricing for the SE and SEL models in the low thirties, the Tiguan carries a premium price several thousand dollars higher than some of the alternatives.

2017 Volkswagen Touareg

The Touareg is Volkswagen's entry in the premium SUV market. Developed in conjunction with the Porsche Cayenne, the Touareg offers a luxurious interior paired with a chassis and drive system that is more than capable off-road as well as on-road. The Touareg starts at around $44,000 for the V6 powered model. A diesel-powered model is priced from $47,000 and adds more torque and improved mileage. On paper, the Touareg has a lot going for it, but its premium pricing places it in competition with models from brands that have more prestige than the one known for the "people's car".
