The 2015 Tiguan

It should come as no surprise that the compact sport utility segment is one of the fastest growing in the entire Canadian automotive market.

Combining excellent interior space for passengers and cargo alike with a “go-anywhere” personality has made these vehicles a favourite, and this year’s brutal winter weather in much of the country has made their all-wheel-drive capabilities all-the-more desirable.

What a week it was for Volkswagen and its icon, the Golf.

The annual Auto Show season kicks off in Detroit each January and this year’s show was special for Volkswagen as the all-new, 7th generation Golf was named “North American Car of the Year”.  The honour was bestowed by the 57 Canadian and American judges of the annual award.

Just four days later, at the Montreal Auto Show, the accolades continued with the Golf being named “Best of the Best” by the Canadian Automotive Jury, a panel of well-known Canadian Auto journalists.

Later that same day, the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) named the Golf as one of the finalists for their annual “Car of the Year” award.  The announcement of the outright winner will take place at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto.

All-in-all, it was a very busy… and extremely rewarding week for the Golf. Since its introduction last summer, the Golf has set all kinds of sales records.  Journalists have noted the Golf’s refinement, fun-to-drive character and solid value, and we are quite proud that Canadian consumers seem to agree!

As Canadians, we don’t complain about winter- we embrace it. We don’t look forward to the snow melting – we turn snow in to art. We don’t hibernate all winter – we go outside to enjoy the brisk cold of our country. We attack winter – we don’t let winter attack us. Read this article

2015 Golf in NYC day

I am very pleased to announce that Volkswagen Canada has achieved our 5th consecutive record sales year.  Outside of the obvious significance of this event comes the emotional impact…we now have more “Volkswagen Fans” than ever before and could not be prouder!

This truly has been the “year of the Golf” for us in Canada.  In the spring, the all-new, 7th generation Golf and GTI made their way to our market.  After winning countless international awards, the new Golf was enthusiastically welcomed by the motoring press and consumers alike.  The cars have quite literally been “flying off of the shelves”, and the accolades continue to pour in.  Recently, the Golf was named a finalist for both “Canadian Car of the Year” and “North American Car of the Year”.  We won’t find out until the New Year if our Golf has taken home top honours, but are confident that our customers have received the best Golf ever.

As long as there have been cars, people have been “hopping them up” and taking them to the races.  There are road races, oval races, drag races and races we don’t even know what to call.  One form of racing seems to do a good job of combining all types into one, and that is rally racing.  In a rally, drivers pilot their cars over hill and dale, sometimes on roads, sometimes through the mud, and sometimes in the craziest weather you have ever seen. At the top of the rally mountain is the WRC, the World Rally Championship. And at the top of the WRC is Volkswagen.

I attended the Berlin Klassik show in Kitchener last month and was able to show off some new accessories for the All-New 2015 Golf. Volkswagen Canada put together a “Trendline” 2015 Golf with some of the coolest accessories like the skirt kits, 19” twin spoke rims, rear centre exhaust, and many other parts that are all available through the Volkswagen parts department.
