2017 Volkswagen Sponsorship of Discovery Channel Shark Week
Discovery Channel has been running Shark Week since 1988, making it the longest running program on the network.

This year, it’s “Land of Sharks,” a short video series in which a family drives the 2018 VW Atlas across country to learn more about the history of sharks in America. Read the rest of this entry »
Why is the VW Touareg discontinued?
The price tag for the 2017 VW Touareg can be something of a shock for anyone who hasn’t slipped behind the wheel. At first glance, it’s a fairly compact SUV with a starting MSRP of $49, 495. That’s quite a hefty sum for a non-luxury brand. Part of this is because the most value the model had to offer came from the parts that aren’t seen. Built on a longitudinal layout, it simply drives differently than many of the economically-focused SUVs on the market today, and compares well to many premium-brand offerings, but at a lower price point. Unfortunately, the VW Touareg is now being discontinued, and there are a few reasons why. Read the rest of this entry »
2017 VW Model Year End Savings Event Tampa FL

That’s the point behind VW Model Year End Savings Event, which has launched for the 2017 models here at Brandon Volkswagen of Tampa FL. Read the rest of this entry »
We’re all aware that VW has a sense of humor, but the brand can go long periods without showing off risky ads. At least in America. Right now campaigns are launched to flaunt the many features of the 2018 VW Atlas and its family-friendly appeal, but you might be surprised to find that there are some less-than-serious ads that aren’t nearly as sentimental. Some of these hilarious foreign Volkswagen commercials are older, but we think they’re worth a view if you’re in need of a good chuckle. Read the rest of this entry »

Is the 2018 VW Tiguan replacing the 2017 Tiguan?
When Volkswagen first revealed the 2018 VW Tiguan, the long-wheelbase version set for a release this fall, we thought that it would get the “Tiguan Allspace” name. At least, that’s what plenty of sources speculated. Then Volkswagen failed to adopt the name officially, and things became a bit confusing. In fact, the automaker typically refers to it as the “all-new” Tiguan. Does that mean the 2018 VW Tiguan is entirely replacing the 2017 Tiguan? Read the rest of this entry »
