The Benefits of Buying New

The benefits of purchasing a new Volkswagen are numerous. You’re getting the most up-to-date tech we have to offer when you get your hands on a new Volkswagen. That is true for more than just the standard features and options of our vehicles. The performance parts available for the new Volkswagens are cutting edge too. The continuous advancement in vehicle technology has been most notable in regard to safety features.

New Volkswagens have standard airbags and an impressive suite of high-tech safety features that older models lack. These include active blind-spot monitoring systems, active lane-keeping programming, forward collision warning with autonomous emergency braking, and parking distance control technology.

Fuel efficiency has a significant financial impact on drivers, and it can really pile up over time. Choosing a newer model of Volkswagen means opting for a state-of-the-art engine with remarkable miles per gallon ratings. New Volkswagens have all-new parts, so they’ll last far longer than their used or certified pre-owned cousins. New vehicles also get superior warranties compared to vehicles in the used category.

Every new Volkswagen comes with a four-year/50,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty and a seven-year/100,000-mile limited warranty against corrosion perforation. The new Volkswagen factory warranties include original equipment manufacturer parts for the battery, brake pads and shoes, mechanical breakdowns, defective part replacement, halogen and xenon bulbs, mechanical adjustments, and paint.

Insurance Price Difference: New vs. Used

Almost every state legally requires basic liability insurance for all road vehicles. Most also require some level of personal injury coverage. Both these and many other forms of insurance are cheaper for new vehicles than used ones since newer parts represent a lower insurance risk than older ones. Having new high-tech safety features reduces the cost even further.

It’s wise to get full coverage for new vehicles since they are more expensive to replace compared to used ones. Although the cost of full coverage varies considerably from one location and person to another, the value gained through the coverage is more than worth it. Classic cars are far more expensive to cover than their new counterparts. If you love classic cars but want to avoid the higher cost, choose a new Volkswagen.

High-powered vehicle insurance plans are cheaper for new vehicles because of the high-tech safety features we mentioned. Risks relating to high horsepower and torque ratings are reduced by these features. New Volkswagens also have emergency communication equipment options, further decreasing the cost of coverage. Not all used vehicles have these.

The Volkswagen Arteon Sedan

The Volkswagen Arteon is one of the most responsive in our new vehicle lineup. The travel assistance programming in this sedan considerably increases handling efficiency and vehicle distance-related safety. Its adaptive cruise control system uses active sensor technology to detect nearby vehicles. It can then alter the Arteon’s speed to manage its distance from other vehicles.

Blind spots are a thing of the past with the Arteon due to its active monitoring system. This safety feature alerts the driver whenever another vehicle approaches. Smart driving and safety technologies augment the driver’s ability to confidently navigate every commute. All these systems and more come together to form Volkswagen’s IQ.Drive technology suite.

The Volkswagen Atlas

The Volkswagen Atlas is a three-row SUV that seats seven. It has an incredible 96.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity with the seating area included. The GPS in this high-tech SUV can be displayed in the digital driver’s information cluster in front of the wheel instead of off to the side on an infotainment screen. This means you check the map with a shorter glance time, increasing driving safety as you can get back to looking at the road ahead.

Engine sizes vary by model year, but the ones with the 3.6-liter V-6 are among the best. This engine pumps out an impressive 276 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque.
