2017 Volkswagen Ratings, Reviews and Awards

Volkswagen announced in 2017 that many exciting changes were coming to its lineup the following year, like an improved Golf and the new Atlas, but that meant that this year saw little changes aside from some tweaks to trims and packages and some new standard features. The coveted Beetle received a new trim level, #PinkBeetle, which entered the scene with a candy-colored pink exterior, hints of pink on the interior trim, and the same features from the standard Beetle that drivers know and love. Despite its updates schedule in 2018, the Golf still saw some notable changes, like a wagon body style option, revised e-Golf styling, and a Wolfsburg Edition trim level. Volkswagen decided to nix the Tiguan’s SE and R-Line trims but added Sport and Wolfsburg Edition trim levels to fill the void, plus added an improved turbocharged engine and new standard features, like a larger touchscreen and app connectivity, throughout the line.
