    Volkswagen 2017 Model Overview

    Broadly speaking, Volkswagen gives its 2017 lineup a significant boost in terms of driver-assistance and collision-avoidance technologies, either adding them as standard equipment or making them available at lower cost. The company has also pared down the number of trim level variations for several of its models, and has dropped both the Eos convertible and the Jetta Hybrid from the lineup. The only debut for 2017 is the Golf Alltrack, which essentially applies a Subaru Outback treatment to the Golf SportWagen model.

    Detailed changes for each 2017 Volkswagen car and SUV model are shown on the pages that follow.
