New Engine for 2016 Volkswagen Jetta GLI

Here at Knight Auto Haus WV, the #VolkswagenJetta is one of the most admired vehicles in our lineup by our #Brandon and #Winnipeg customers. Its sporty design coupled with its powerful engines, high-end features, and affordable price point make it a real hit. While the #2015VolkswagenJetta is currently available at our dealership, we’re excited for the premiere of the #2016VolkswagenJetta GLI.
 
The new Jetta will be redesigned to adopt an aggressive appearance that’s comparable to the look found on the #Volkswagen GTI. Its exterior will be composed of a GTI-inspired honeycomb grill, new fog lights, a new diffuser, and a pair of chrome-plated exhaust tips.
 
In addition, the 2016 Jetta will be powered by a 2.0L, four-cylinder engine that can produce an astounding 210 hp. While a six-speed manual transmission will come standard, a six-speed DSB dual-clutch is an option. Drivers will also enjoy performance upgrades such as 18-inch alloy wheels and a sport-tuned suspension.
 
The cabin of every new Jetta will be loaded with modern features such as dual-zone climate control, a six-way power adjustable driver’s seat, parking sensors, push-button start, a rearview camera, and a Fender audio system. While all-season tires are included with every new Jetta, summer performance tires are available.
 
Volkswagen’s new Automatic Post-Collision Braking system that automatically applies the brakes when an impact is detected to prevent additional impacts is also included on every Jetta. Those who opt for the higher level SEL trim will reap the benefits of a wide array of luxury features that include adaptive xenon headlights, a navigation system, rear traffic alert, and blind spot detection.
 
The 2016 Volkswagen GTL is expected to launch later this year. Although pricing for this model has yet to be announced, we predict the sedan’s starting price to be similar to the $27,740 figure found on the 2015 Jetta.
 
If you’d like to find out more details on the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta or take the 2015 Jetta out for a spin, take a trip to Knight Auto Haus VW today. We’re only a short distance from the Winnipeg and Brandon areas and we can’t wait to see you soon!

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf Will Feature Gesture Control
 
The #VolkswagenGolf is one of the most popular models here at Knight Auto Haus Volkswagen. Drivers from #Winnipeg, #Brandon, and surrounding areas appreciate the Golf for its modern technology, compact design, and top-notch fuel economy.
 
#Volkswagen is pleased to announced that the upcoming 2017 Golf will feature a gesture-controlled infotainment system that’s similar to the one found in the Golf R Touch concept that was revealed several months ago at the 2015 International Consumer Electronic Show show in Las Vegas.
 
The system’s five in-car sensors and three high-definition color screens will allow passengers to access all of the Golf’s features without the use of buttons. In addition, the segment first gesture recognition software that can be found within the system will let the driver set the climate control, open and close the sunroof, and adjust the radio’s volume virtually.
 
According to Auto Express, operations on the new Golf that cannot be controlled by gestures will be completed by digital displays instead. There hasn’t been an official notice on when the #2017VolkswagenGolf will make its debut but we’ve heard rumors that it may be revealed next spring at the Geneva Motor Show or at the Paris Motor Show next fall. We won’t be surprised to see this gesture control technology on other Volkswagen models after the 2017 Golf premieres.
 
We have no doubts that the upcoming Golf will be as impressive as the #2015VolkswagenGolf. This seventh generation compact car is powered by a standard 1.8L TSI four-cylinder engine that gives off 170 hp or a 2.0 TDI clean diesel engine that is capable of 150 hp while still offering excellent fuel efficiency. The current Golf also comes with two exhaust gas recirculation systems that allow it to emit 40% lower emissions than the previous model.
 
Every 2015 Golf is equipped with a wide array of standard conveniences including an anti-theft vehicle alarm system, LED turn signals, a media device interface with iPod connectivity, and an infotainment system with a 5.8-inch colour touchscreen.
 
While we wait for the upcoming Golf to hit the market, we welcome Winnipeg and Brandon residents to take a trip to Knight Auto Haus Volkswagen to test-drive the #2015VolkswagenGolf that is currently available.

The Golf R400 Prototype Displays Stunning Performance

From the moment we heard about the #VolkswagenGolfR400 prototype, we couldn’t wait to share more details with our customers from #Winnipeg and #Brandon. Here at Knight Auto Haus Volkswagen, we’re excited about this upcoming high-performance #hatchback.
 
When the Golf R400 concept was first unveiled at the at the Beijing Motor Show last year, #Volkswagen stated it would be paired with a 400-hp 2.0L turbocharged engine capable of stunning acceleration.  
 
Aside from its incredible power and speed, the Golf R400 will feature aggressive styling with front and rear tracks that are wider than the typical Golf R, a prominent roof spoiler, larger wheels and tires, and an enlarged intercooler. Tinted taillights will also be installed. Suffice to say that driving enthusiasts around Winnipeg and Brandon are waiting with bated breath for a production model to show up.
 
While we wait for the Volkswagen Golf R400 to come to fruition, we’ll enjoy exploring the #2015VolkswagenGolf. The 2015 Golf is the first Volkswagen to be built on the revolutionary German-engineered MQB platform, which allows for increased efficiency and improved performance.
 
Drivers can select from two advanced powertrains that include a 1.8L TSI four-cylinder engine that cranks out 170 hp or a 2.0: TDI Clean Diesel that offers 150 hp. The 2015 Golf is also equipped with two exhaust recirculation systems that cause the car to produce 40% lower emissions than its predecessors.
 
High-tech standard features on the Golf R include 18-inch wheels with performance tires, LED daytime running lights, xenon headlights, a rear spoiler, selectable drive modes, heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seats and an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Entertainment amenities such as a 5.8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and an eight-speaker CD player with satellite radio are also included.

Volkswagen Designs Exclusive Polar Expedition Amarok For the Sochi Winter Olympics

As the official vehicle partner of this year’s Olympics in Sochi, Volkswagen has supplied more than 3,000 different Volkswagen, Skoda, and Audi vehicles for the event. Out of all the vehicles sent over for the games, the Polar Expedition Amarok truck is definitely one of the most exciting.

The Polar Expedition Amarok was actually built last year to help promote the event in more remote areas of Russia. Three trucks were created for this nine-person journey from Moscow to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, which is 9,942 miles to the east. In fact, the team who took part in this expedition achieved a Guinness World Record for the longest off-road journey across a single country over a period of 66 days.

The special edition Amarok trucks were specially outfitted to be able to handle frigid temperatures and unpaved roads. The traditional suspension system was swapped with long-travel, heavy-duty shocks, and large tires that offered improved traction. Both the body and the engine remained nearly the same, but a roll cage and additional navigation equipment were added for enhanced safety.

Although the Polar Expedition Amarok will not be hitting North American showrooms any time soon, there are plenty of great models from Volkswagen that are dependable and up for a challenge. From the fuel-efficient Jetta to the spacious Tiguan, you can’t go wrong with a Volkswagen. If you are looking for a vehicle you can rely on, be sure to browse our extensive inventory at Knight Auto Haus Volkswagen in #Winnipeg! (http://www.knightvw.ca/new-vehicles/)

VW is Saying Farewell to the Hippie Bus
#Volkswagen enthusiasts worldwide will bid farewell to the legendary “hippie bus” as the last model rolls off the assembly line in Brazil on December 31. This news is quite the downer for those who have found memories and connections with the icon of the American counterculture movement in the 1960’s. Originally debuting in 1950, proudly boasting its boxy, utilitarian shape and funky rear engine, the Volkswagen minibus is the longest-produced model in automotive history.

Whether you knew it as the beloved “hippie bus”, the “Kombi”, the “Spliittie”, the “camper van”, or just the “#VWBus”, the illustrious symbol of freedom is rumored to be incompatible with the safety mandates that will be required in Brazil by 2014, such as air bags and anti-locking brake systems. Brazil has stood behind the classic favorite for decades, producing over 1.5 million vehicles since 1957.

Volkswagen has produced over 10 million VW Bus models across the globe since its debut. Its home country of Germany put its production to rest in 1979 and Mexico did the same in 1994, but the beat went on for the minibus as production continued in Brazil. As production model termination grows closer, the final VW buses that roll off the line will be turned into special editions for a truly groovy ride.

For more information about the VW Hippie Bus or any other Volkswagen models, contact Auto Haus Volkswagen in #Winnipeg at (204) 284-7520. (http://www.autohausvw.com/aboutus/contactus.aspx?lng=2)
