With a history that dates back to before World War 2, the Volkswagen name was for decades synonymous with its iconic Beetle. A renewed focus on the US market has resulted in new versions of the Jetta and Passat tailored to American needs. Globally Volkswagen is one of the top automakers in the world with the Golf as its most popular nameplate.

Fuel Economy

Fuel economy has long been a key decision factor when buying a new vehicle. While the EPA estimates may not accurately predict your mileage with a given vehicle, they are useful for broad comparisons of vehicles. Note that many trucks and large SUVS are too heavy to be required to specify their fuel economy.
