Last Friday, Justine and I went down to the Canadian International AutoShow to experience the latest lineup from Volkswagen. It was a fun-filled family affair and we even got to bring our dog, Sofia! It was a great opportunity for us to sit in each of the cars together and imagine ourselves driving them.
All of the latest Volkswagen models were on display, with three major highlights: the 2018 Tiguan Redesign, 2018 Volkswagen Atlas, and 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf. In addition to the cars, there was also an awesome virtual reality exhibit for guests to walk through and experience the 4 Seasons of Volkswagen.
My favorite car on display was the all-new 2018 Tiguan, which has been redesigned to be more spacious and comfortable, as well as, tougher and more rugged than its predecessors. Now 27” longer, the Tiguan features an updated, rugged exterior design and luxurious interior. The all-wheel drive is perfect for road trips out of the city and the unpredictable, mixed weather conditions we get in Canada. I could definitely see the Tiguan fitting perfectly in our lifestyle. Compact enough for city driving, but also spacious enough for all of the things we take and pick up with us on the go, like groceries, home décor, clothing, friends and family members.
The coolest new addition to Volkswagen’s offering is probably the 2017 e-Golf. Available in a wide range of colors, the new e-Golf features everything you know and love about the Golf, now 100% electric. That’s right, this car requires zero fuel! The e-Golf is fantastic for city driving, with assist features for driving in traffic and of course it’s small, sporty size. For the tech lovers, there is an optional fully digital cockpit, featuring a 12.3-inch, digital instrument display behind the steering wheel.
We also had fun checking out the Beetle Dune convertible with our friend Afiya! This iconic Volkswagen model is all about fun. Totally ideal for summer driving, this car took our imaginations right to the Pacific Coast Highway with the top down, blasting music under the sun.
