As a parent, you know how difficult it can be to find a vehicle that not only suits your performance and safety requirements, but also comes loaded with features to keep the kids comfortable and occupied – even on long car rides. Featuring a family-friendly lineup for 2017, Volkswagen checks off several bullet points on your must-haves list for a family vehicle. From roomy backseats to impressive safety features to adjustable cargo room and more, the VW Passat, Jetta, Golf SportWagen and Tiguan offer a little something for everyone in your household.
Whether you’re headed to soccer practice or traveling to the grandparents’ for a weekend stay, your family needs plenty of cargo space to stash suitcases, sports equipment and more. Fortunately, the 2017 VW Passat includes 60/40-split folding rear seats, allowing you to configure the storage space as you see fit, and it also features an available hands-free Easy Open trunk for convenient access, even when your hands are full. Kids will enjoy the best-in-class rear leg room, and parents will appreciate the touch-screen entertainment system. Plus, with seven available Driver Assistance features and a standard Rearview Camera System, the 2017 VW Passat helps you arrive at your destination safely.
If fuel economy is what you’re after, then the Volkswagen Jetta may be just the right fit for your busy household. With an EPA-estimated 33 - 40 highway mpg range, the all-new Jetta means less time at the gas pump and more time making lasting memories with your family. Although the Jetta is more compact than the Passat, there’s still plenty of room to buckle in three youngsters in the rear seats. Choose from a variety of family-friendly features, like Blind Spot Monitor, dual-zone climate control and SiriusXM Satellite Radio to keep every passenger happy.
Designed with a driver-focused interior, the 2017 Golf SportWagen is as fun to drive as it is to sit and watch from the spacious back seats, which fold down to reveal 66.5 cu. ft. of cargo space. The available 4MOTION all-wheel drive delivers enhanced traction, grip and handling to help you navigate various road conditions, while the available Driver Assistance features, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Rear Traffic Alert and Park Pilot, lend a hand while in motion. When you’re out and about with the kids, the all-new Golf SportWagen lets you locate your last parked car, call for help in an emergency and more with the Volkswagen Car-Net Security & Service 3-month trial subscription.
Built with tech-savvy, versatile features, the all-new VW Tiguan is the perfect compact SUV for families. Enjoy the heated front seats while you select the kids’ favorite tunes on the touch-screen display using VW Car-Net App-Connect. On long car rides or while running errands around town, you’ll be able to keep drinks and snacks cool by placing them in the glove box and adjusting the cooling feature. Plus, the 40/20/40-split folding rear seats offer flexibility when storing soccer equipment, groceries and other gear. Each Tiguan trim boasts rain-sensing windshield wipers, seven stability-enhancing systems and a review camera to boost safety. For added peace of mind, the available 4MOTION all-wheel drive increases agility and handling – even in less-than-ideal road conditions.
