2003 Volkswagen Ratings, Reviews and Awards

Volkswagen kept its lineup mostly the same in 2003 except announcing that the Eurovan, its commercial van, wouldn’t be returning for another year. The manufacturer focused on upgrading its other existing vehicles with changes to trim levels and packages to remain more competitive in their classes. The GTI, for example, saw its vehicle stability control system moved to a higher trim level, making the lower levels slightly more affordable but with the option of adding the feature. The Golf received that same stability control system on all of its trims, plus standard power windows and locks and cruise control. Volkswagen dropped a trim level for its wagon body style and wrapped some of its features, like power seats and rain-sensing wipers, into a premium add-on package. The Beetle’s Sport trim dropped, but all trims received a redesigned rear seat and mirror-mounted turn signals.
