Driven by Devin: 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible

A classic icon has received numerous modern updates in the past decade while still retaining its old charm. This year however… this year the 2016 Beetle has stepped up its game. Big time.

For starters, the 2016 Volkswagen Beetle has brought with it three new color options to its already diverse variety. Silk Blue Metallic, although not new to the Volkswagen brand, is newly placed on the Beetle, while a new Dark Bronze Metallic has been introduced. But perhaps the most exciting color option added is quite unique and spicy…

Habanero Orange Metallic.

This fiery addition is quite orange as you can see below and although it has a reddish tinge, it is certainly distinguishable from Tornado Red. The ‘metallic’ makes it even spicier by adding in metal flakes to make the orange really sparkle. The boldest Beetle color next to Yellow Rush, this color is not for the conservative; while driving the short distance that I did, it attracted quite a few chasing eyes.

 2016 Beetle Convertible in Habanero Orange Metallic. Trim: SE, Engine: 1.8T, Wheels: 17″ Turbine, black leatherette interior.

2016 trim levels have expanded a bit, with a Wolfsburg Edition, S, SE, SEL, TDI SE, TDI SEL, R-Line, R-Line SE, R-Line SEL, Dune (special edition coupe model), and Denim (special edition convertible model), and been renamed for clarity.

The 2016 Beetle has been updated both externally and internally. It still pays homage to its classic ancestor with bubbly curves and a happy smile, but has been substantially modernized. A lower and flatter roof line has been established along with a more upright windshield. Paint colors and wheel styles are in abundance, with 17″, 18″, or 19″ sizes offered depending upon trim level. As always, it is available in a coupe or convertible.

The Beetle comes with a 1.8T or 2.0T engine. For those with a greater taste for style, a turbocharged 1.8L with a six speed automatic is offered at a lesser price than its turbocharged 2.0L counterpart (with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed DSG auto), which is for the more speed oriented. Regardless of the engine, the 2016 Beetle is pretty quick and responsive with good acceleration and braking, smooth shifting, and a comfortable ride.

It is worth noting that Volkswagen has introduced a Beetle 1.8T Wolfsburg Edition (listed above). The Wolfsburg takes over as the base Beetle model, while still packing in the features.

The interior of the Beetle remains as clean and simple as ever, keeping true to the Beetle style. V-tex leatherette seating is standard, complete with a leather wrapped steering wheel, shift knob, and e-brake. And heated seats! Heated seats come standard at every trim level as well.

The biggest changes to the 2016 Beetle lineup are technology based as Volkswagen has integrated its Modular Infotainment System (MIB II) system and Car-Net connectivity systems -Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and MirrorLink- into 2016 models at SE and above trims. All trim levels, however, now come with either a 5″ or 6.3″ touchscreen, which is cleaner and easier to use than before.

Looking for features standard in all trim levels? Bluetooth, a 8-speaker sound system, USB/auxiliary ports, climate control, power adjustable heated mirrors, cruise control, multi-function display, variable intermittent windshield wipers with heated washer nozzles, and keyless entry are your basic options.

I think it is safe to say that no matter the trim, the 2016 Beetle packs in some serious options and technology. Of course, the higher the trim the wider selection of features, but that’s a different story (and probably a future review). But for now, you’ve read the jist of what the 2016 Beetle has brought to the car game, and it’s quite a bit.

IMG_0689

The SE trim level comes standard with a rearview camera, Car-Net, 6.3″ touchscreen AM/FM/HD radio and CD player with USB and auxiliary, 8-speaker sound system, Bluetooth, voice control, SiriusXM, power adjustable heated mirrors, keyless entry, cruise control, push button start, TPMS, and more.

Driven by Devin: 2015 Passat Limited Edition

The Volkswagen Passat, regardless of trim level, is a pleasant drive. It gets good gas mileage, handles well, drives smooth, is pretty spacious, and is Volkswagen’s family sedan. It features a 1.8L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that gets up and goes when needed. I drive one of these quaint sedans almost everyday between dealerships, and I must say they make for a quite comfortable daily driver. The current 2015 Passat is offered in several different trim levels; the S, SE, SE with sunroof and navigation, SEL Premium, and a new Limited Edition.

IMG_3643

A limited run, Volkswagen’s 2015 Limited Edition Passat replaces the Wolfsburg and offers a send-off to the current Passat model. A middle ground between the base Passat S and Passat SE, the Limited Edition is designated by a “Limited” badge and offers key upgrades from the S.

IMG_3636

Passat Limited Edition

Perhaps the biggest improvements are the rearview camera (which is uber helpful), the leatherette interior, power driver seat, and heated front seats.

The leatherette interior is a nice luxurious touch to the Limited Edition. A power driver seat is always a plus, as in some cars, I eagerly reach for those controls only to be disappointed by what is a manual seat (although I have owned my share of manually adjustable seat vehicles). And of course, these seats are heated too. Yes, we may live in Florida, but I personally freeze in the 40-degree weather. Since I haven’t lived anywhere but the Sunshine State, I am totally all-in for the warmers.

A rearview camera makes backing up so much easier. I have never personally owned a car with a rearview camera, and although I am a self-proclaimed expert “backer-upper” (yes I made that up, & I always back my car in wherever possible), the aid of a camera would be happily embraced. You cannot completely rely on the camera (please don’t Big Box store shoppers), but it helps for those tight spots, blind spots, and any other problem spots you encounter in reverse.

IMG_3595

The Passat LE also features an updated 8-speaker Premium VIII radio with a CD changer, SiriusXM(c) Satellite radio, Kessy(c) keyless entry, 17″ alloy wheels, a push button start, bright chrome exterior trim, and front fog lights.

IMG_3591

Surprisingly, the added features of the Limited Edition don’t actually cost you that much extra over the Passat S (which are getting hard to find). If I were in the market for a practical sedan, I would definitely consider the Limited Edition, mostly for that rearview camera.

Check out the shots below or come check it out in person! We have plenty Limited Edition Passats in several different color combinations to suite your tastes.

Lease VS Buy

When it’s time for your next vehicle, you’ll find yourself facing more decisions than simply “what make/model do I want?” The majority of us will end up financing rather than paying cash, but that raises a very important question; should you lease or buy?

The answer is not the same for everyone, so Volkswagen of Naples has created this nifty infographic exploring a few basic questions you should be asking yourself before making this decision. That’s not all there is to it, though, so let’s get a little more in-depth with the advantages and disadvantages
VW Lease VS Buy-2Leasing

When you lease a vehicle, you will end up with a lower monthly payment with less money due at signing than you would if you took out a loan to purchase the same vehicle. This is because you are essentially renting the vehicle for 2-4 years, so you are only paying for the portion of the vehicle that you plan to use. This is great especially when you are considering something brand new as it allows you to get a vehicle that would otherwise be out of your price range.

The lease agreement does have a disadvantage for some people depending on their driving habits. In your lease, you agree to driving up to a certain amount of miles per year (usually up to 15k/year). If you go over these miles at the end of the lease, it can cost you. If you tend to drive a lot, you should consider buying. Another thing that can be held against you in a lease is excessive wear and tear, however, Volkswagen offers several insurance packages for a small fee to protect you from any unpleasant financial surprises at the end of your lease.

Keeping with financial implications, leasing is great for people who can claim their vehicle as a business expense. When tax season rolls around, remember that leases are deductible! You can’t write off the purchase of a vehicle, but you can with a lease.

Leased vehicles belong to the bank. At the end of your lease term, you do not own the vehicle as you would with a loan when purchasing a vehicle. You then have the option toturn in the vehicle and walk away,
purchase your leased vehicle and make it yours, or lease a brand new one! If you like to have the latest and greatest technology and a brand new vehicle, this is perfect for you! Leases generally last 2-4 years and you can get a brand new vehicle once your term is up. You also do not have to deal with the hassle of selling or trading in your vehicle when you are ready for a new one. Depreciation is not your problem!

Leases can rid you of negative equity. Do often find yourself owing more than what your vehicle is worth with every purchase? It can sometimes seem like you’ll never get out from under it – but fear not! If you have great credit and are willing to make higher payments for a few years, you can rid yourself of this negative equity by rolling it into a lease. Your payments will be high for the next few years, but once your lease term is up, you can turn it in and you will not have any negative equity to speak of! It was all absorbed by the lease.

There is one downside to this – you cannot simply turn in your lease whenever you please. You are locked into the contract for the term that you signed for, and it can sometimes be very difficult and expensive to get out early. If you need the ability sell your vehicle at a moment’s notice or keep it for a very long period of time, then leasing might not be for you.

Buying

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room right off the bat: depreciation. Yes, your vehicle depreciates. Its value goes down as soon as you buy it. For this reason, purchasing a lightly used pre owned or a Certified Pre Owned VW can be the most cost effective option – but let’s admit it. There’s nothing quite like that new car smell, and some of us simply cannot resist.

When you purchase a vehicle, unlike leasing, the vehicle is yours to do with as you please. This doesn’t just play on the feeling of ownership; it does have some very important advantages and disadvantages. If you suddenly need to get rid of your vehicle or get something else, buying gives you flexibility to do so. For example, say you purchase a Volkswagen Beetle Convertible and a few months later you find out that you are expecting a little bundle of joy. A small convertible will no longer suit your needs, and you’ll need to opt for something larger like a Passat or a Tiguan SUV. Since you purchased rather than leased your Beetle, you can simply trade it in for something that better suits your needs – and you may even have some positive equity to play with!

The other side of this advantage is that you can keep your vehicle for as long as you want! Some of us tend to get attached and like to keep our vehicles for a long time, and sometimes even pass them down to our children. Buying allows you to do this…. Or not! The choice is yours, and you can decide when you’re ready.

Another advantage is no mileage restrictions! Since the vehicle is yours, it does not matter how much or how little you drive. You can drive cross country whenever you feel like it!

It is important to talk about credit scores too. To lease, you must have excellent credit. If you are concerned about your credit score, or if you already know that it’s on the lower side, then buying will likely be your best bet. Whichever route you take, as long as you keep up with your payments, you can improve your credit score thanks to your new car!

We hope that this was helpful to you! If you have further questions or if you are ready to buy or lease your new Volkswagen, please stop by Volkswagen of Naples or call us at (866) 364-0242.

2015 Volkswagen GTI: First Drive & Review

The 2014 Volkswagen Beetle GSR has arrived!

This GSR is one of 3500 that will be sold in the U.S. Here now at Volkswagen of Naples!!!

 

(Source: Volkswagen of America, Inc)

With this new car, Volkswagen has re-interpreted the 1970s GSR for the modern era. The bodyshell of the 1973 Beetle was painted yellow, while the hood, trunklid, and bumpers were finished in matte black. The look was rounded out by black trim strips underneath the side windows and black rocker panels. Yellow and black link old and new: the body and the R-Line® bumpers on the new GSR are predominantly yellow, the hood is mainly black, and the trunklid, roof, and the exterior mirror caps are all black. The new car has yellow/black stripes with “GSR” lettering above the side skirts and a large rear spoiler to complete the look. The stance of the new car is very different, as it rides on 19-inch “Tornado” aluminum-alloy wheels shod with 235/40 tires, compared with the original GSR’s 15-inch steel wheels and 175-section tires, which were quite common even on sporty cars back then. The new GSR also features silver-painted brake calipers.


Then as now, the GSR features a unique interior with a yellow/black theme, sport seats, and a leather sport steering wheel. The new GSR is a lot more sophisticated, however. The black-trimmed leather sport seats and high-grip leather steering wheel both have contrasting yellow stitching, for example. Other interior changes include an R-Line dash pad, a GSR shift lever, a leather handbrake lever, and black floormats with contrasting yellow embroidery. A badge on the steering wheel is marked with the special-edition number (1 through 3500) to emphasize the uniqueness of the car.

Forty years ago, the Beetle GSR had all of 50 horsepower, enough to give it the requisite performance for a sporty compact of the time. But the modern world demands much more under the hood. The new GSR’s 210 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque enable the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.6 seconds and to reach an electronically governed top track speed of 130 mph. Most impressively, the engine delivers peak torque from as low as 1700 rpm, giving smooth, effortless acceleration in all the gears. The GSR is standard with a six-speed manual transmission, but a dual-clutch DSG® six-speed automatic transmission will be an option.

Just like its predecessor, only 3500 GSR models will be made—and more than half of those will be sold in the U.S. Since the GSR is based on the Beetle Turbo with Sunroof and Sound model, it comes comprehensively equipped with the Fender® Premium Audio System; a panoramic sunroof; Keyless access with push-button start; Bi-Xenon headlights with LED DRLs; LED license-plate lighting; heatable front seats; Bluetooth® connectivity; a Media Device Interface (MDI) with iPod® cable; three-color ambient lighting; aluminum-alloy pedals; and three auxiliary instruments that include a clock with a stopwatch function and a boost gauge. The Volkswagen Beetle GSR will go on sale in the fall as a 2014 model; pricing will be announced closer to launch.

Ten good reasons to have a dealership service your car

 

Today’s new cars and trucks need a special kind of care. By going to a franchised new-car dealership. You can expect quality service and avoid unnecessary maintenance and repairs.

1. QUALIFIED TECHNICIANS

Many dealership technicians are certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). Usually they specialize in only one make of vehicles – yours.

2. TOP-NOTCH TRAINING

You can be assured that dealership technicians have current technical and product information. This generation of cars needs the computer skills, electronics and continuing education that your manufacturer provides to the dealership technicians who service your car.

3. STATE-OF-THE-ART EQUIPMENT

Dealers have access to specially designed service tools and the finest in modern diagnostic system to use in servicing your car.

4. HELPFUL HOT LINES

You benefit from a vast data base of current technical information available to your dealer. Technicians can usually call the manufacturer’s hot line which provides instant inside information about your specific model car.

5. THE RIGHT PARTS

With original equipment replacement parts manufactured for your exact model car or truck, you’ll be assured of the right look, the right fit, and the same original equipment manufacturer (OEM) quality you originally purchased.

6. PROTECTION FOR YOUR INVESTMENT

Since you’ve probably spent about $15,000 or more on your new car, you won’t want to rely on anyone other than top professionals. Your new car dealership helps you keep your car in top performance condition.

7. COMPETITIVE PRICES

Check their prices. They’re probably better than you think. Competition has forced many dealerships to lower their prices – especially on simple maintenance such as oil changes and tune-ups.

8. SOLID GUARANTEES!

Because reputations depend on customer satisfaction, many dealerships guarantee repairs for periods appropriate to individual automobile conditions. You’ll also get available manufactures’ guarantees on original equipment replacement parts.

9. PERSONAL CONVENIENCE

In an effort to earn and keep your business, many dealerships have extended service hours to include nights and weekends, opened express lines for routine maintenance and repairs, and started to provide guaranteed delivery times for work completed. Many also offer transportation or “loaner” cars while repairs are being made.

10. POSITIVE SATISFACTION

More than ever before, your dealership wants to please customers by combining superior customer service with quality work at a fair price. Because their business depends on it, dealers are making your satisfaction their priority.

Volkswagen of Naples shares family values: Volkswagen Passat named 2012 top family car

Kelley Blue Book’s KKB.com names the Volkswagen Passat “Top Family Car”. The Editors at the prestigious website single out Passat as the number one family-hauler, from a field of 10 cars

The 2012 Passat can add yet another accolade to its growing roster of awards: It has been named by Kelley Blue Book’s www.kbb.com as the number-one pick for its 10 Best Family Cars of 2012 list. Each year, the expert editors at kbb.com choose 10 vehicles that they feel address a wide selection of typical familial concerns, ranging from safety, comfort, child-friendliness and favorable consumer ratings to potential out-of-pocket costs during the car’s first five years of ownership.

The Passat—starting at $19,995, with class-leading rear-seat legroom and parent-friendly standard features like Bluetooth® technology and dual-zone climate control—represents a tremendous value for any modern family. And, with the option of a TDI® Clean Diesel engine that gets an EPA estimated 43 mpg on the highway and a range of up to 795 miles when equipped with a manual transmission, the Passat can also be an eco-conscious family-hauling machine.

In naming the Passat their number one pick, kbb.com editors said: “Crafted specifically for the American market—it’s even built in Chattanooga, Tennessee—the 2012 Volkswagen Passat is both larger and cheaper than the model it replaces. But the European driving dynamics and interior feel remain, making the new Passat a uniquely well-rounded family sedan and our best family car of 2012.”

“We’re flattered to have the Passat recognized as the best family car of 2012 by the editors at Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com, a company that is highly regarded by both the automotive industry and consumers,” said Jonathan Browning, President and CEO, Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. “Such acknowledgement further validates our efforts to make it the first affordable, midsize German-engineered car for the American family. And it’s built in America!”

Think new, think two, Think Blue: Volkswagen of Naples reports Volkswagen announces two new members of the Think Blue family.

Think of them as fraternal twins. At the Detroit Auto Show, Volkswagen unveiled two new future-forward members of the Think Blue family: the Jetta Hybrid and the E-Bugster concept car.

Joining our production TDI models as well as our up! And NILS concept car in the Think Blue line, the Jetta Hybrid and E-Bugster are big on performance and light on carbon footprint. Both new vehicles are great examples of Think Blue, Volkswagen’s initiative to create environmentally friendly solutions, encourage eco-conscious behavior and contribute to a sustainable future.

“Think Blue is the philosophy behind our environmentally friendly, high-performance cars, fueled by TDI clean diesel,” comments Brian Massoll, Managing Partner, Volkswagen of Naples, located in Naples, Florida.

The Jetta Hybrid offers all the style and driving fun you’ve come to expect from the Jetta, but what makes this model different is—well, lots of things. For one, it’s the world’s first hybrid to use a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. But don’t worry—we didn’t sacrifice the any of the performance you’ve come to expect from the Jetta. Sure, it drives as a full EV up to 44 mph, but when you’re ready to rev it up, the Jetta Hybrid will take you from 0-60 mph in less than 9.0 seconds. Turns out saving the earth can be a lot of fun.

The E-Bugster concept vehicle is a truly unique creation. The “E” in its name is for “electric,” and “Bugster” is a combination of “Bug” and “speedster,” an apt name for the open-top two-seater with shallow windows and a cut-down windshield. But unlike other speedsters, the E-Bugster boasts a lithium-ion battery that enables it car to drive more than 100 emission-free miles at a time. While it takes design cues from the classic Beetle, it also features futuristic styling, like an arched and stretched front end, LED Daytime Running Lights that form a distinctive graphic on either side of the lower air intake in the front bumper, and EV-specific gauges.
