    Again in a class of their own in 2017: Volkswagen's successful models Golf, Tiguan and Touran from Wolfsburg

    The success story of the Volkswagen Golf, Tiguan and Touran has entered the next round. With almost a million deliveries to customers over the past 12 months, the Golf, with its different body variants, continues to be the Volkswagen brand's most successful model. The Golf hatchback is especially popular and has a strong lead in its segment in Germany and Europe. This year, the Tiguan also convinced many customers, with about 730,000 units delivered throughout the world, representing remarkable growth of 40 percent compared with the previous year. The long version, the Tiguan Allspace, which was introduced this year, also played its part in this growth. The Touran was handed over to about 150,000 customers throughout the world and continues to be by far the leading model in the German MPV segment.

    LED is the new xenon – Daylight-bright headlights for safety through the winter months

    In Europe, the sun is rising around 7 am these days, and it already dips back below the horizon around 4 pm. That makes for a short nine hour period of daylight. By 21 December – the first day of winter on the calendar – the sun has an even shorter appearance. Many people consider it stressful to drive in the dark and under winter weather conditions that are often harsh. That is why Volkswagen is offering relief in the form of powerful LED headlights. They are replacing xenon systems in growing numbers of model series – from the Polo to the Arteon. The LED headlights even come as standard in 22 equipment versions – including all three lines of the Arteon. If the car is also equipped with the optional ‘Active Lighting System', its interactive LED headlights utilise data from the front camera and navigation system to predictively illuminate the next curve.

    Personalisation – individual settings on demand Arteon, T-Roc, Golf & Co. "recognise" their drivers

    People are different. Some are tall, others are short; some like loud rock music, others may prefer classical; some actually freeze in summer, while others are too warm even in winter. If a number of people share one and the same car, each change of driver involves setting, altering and adjusting preferences. Now Volkswagen is putting a stop to all this. "Personalisation" in the true meaning of the word is the key here: the individual settings are allocated to a user name – Driver1, for example – and the respective car key activates them automatically. The personalisation function is already available for the new T-Roc and Arteon as well as all versions of the current Golf, Touran, Tiguan and Passat. As soon as these Volkswagen models are fitted with the feature known as driving profile selection and/or (depending on the model) with a memory function for the driver's seat, personalisation is also included.

    Let the sunshine in! The panoramic sunroof is a re-interpretation of the legendary folding soft top

    The days are growing shorter, the leaves are changing colour, and fall is making its appearance. Despite the season, a lot of Volkswagens are still bright as in summer. There is a tradition here. Ever since the company's early years, intelligent roof systems have been capturing the light of the sun even in wintertime. As early as in 1950, Volkswagen began to offer the Beetle with a folding sunroof. In the mid-1990s, this roof concept was refined in the Lupo and Polo with electrically actuated versions. Today, transparent panoramic sunroofs are experiencing a boom. They are available for all Volkswagen models – from the small up! and new Polo to the large Touareg and new Arteon.

    Bye bye, hay fever! Volkswagen's "Air Care Climatronic" cleans the air

    Happily driving along, everyone in the car is in a good mood. Summer landscapes, forests and meadows pass by outside. But then the tranquillity is shattered by a shrill sneezing from the passenger compartment; the children rub their eyes and now the driver is sneezing, too. Trees, grass, pollen. Hay fever. These are all typical summer ordeals. According to the German Allergy Sufferers and Asthma Association (DAAB), about 20 per cent of all Germans will develop a pollen allergy in the course of their lives. One of the numerous allergy triggers are fungal spores, which are often present in outdoor air in the summer and autumn. In the light of this, Volkswagen has developed a special automatic climate control system, which prevents these pollutants from entering the car: "Air Care Climatronic".

    Relaxed driving in the summer holidays Traffic Jam Assist is your intelligent chauffeur in stop-and-go traffic

    Summer is the time for holiday travel. Unfortunately this also involves heavy traffic and long traffic jams, as the typical routes of travel are often overcrowded. Mountain passes become a chokepoint, ferry lanes a bottleneck, and high-speed motorways around major cities transform into carparks. Stop-and-go driving in traffic jams turns holiday driving into a test of patience, and also it presents a risk of rear-end collisions. Volkswagen's Traffic Jam Assist is there to help in such situations. This innovative assistance system is already available together with the dual clutch gearbox (DSG) on the Golf, Golf Variant, Tiguan, Touran, Passat, Passat Variant and Arteon.

    Stress-free manoeuvring with your trailer thanks to Trailer Assist

    Summer is garden and holiday time. So there is a lot to transport: from garden waste and building materials, the boat or motorcycle right up to the caravan to take on holiday – high season for every type of trailer. But manoeuvring with a trailer is not easy, especially for the occasional trailer-tower and can be an ordeal even for veterans. Because often the trailer does not respond as you would expect. The assistance system "Trailer Assist" ensures that difficult reversing manoeuvres succeed without the usual stress. This optional, easy to use assistance system takes the pressure off those who are travelling with trailers and trying to manoeuvre in confusing DIY-store car parks, small campsites or twisty harbour streets.
