2008 Volkswagen Ratings, Reviews and Awards

Volkswagen continually re-introduces former models and makes adjustments to its current line-up. 2008 was no different. The brand made a few changes to its Jetta sedan, notably reducing the number of trim options to three and introducing a 2.5-liter engine. The GLI trim wasn't eliminated but instead became a separate model in 2008. The 2008 Jetta also put on some weight, gaining 300 pounds and seven inches in length. In 2008, the Volkswagen Golf was called the Rabbit and got a slight boost in power, with the addition of 20 horsepower. The 2008 New Beetle was based on the Rabbit/Golf platform and shared a few updates with the Rabbit, such as a tire pressure monitoring system. The Touareg 2 might have seen the greatest number of updates in 2008, among them the introduction the option of a 5.0-liter diesel V10 engine and a luxurious leather, wood, and chrome interior.
