Right off the bat, the team at our VA Hyundai dealership could provide you with a laundry list of the qualities that make driving a Hyundai such a riveting experience. From the powertrains tucked under the hoods of your favorite models to the sense of control that you find in the driver’s seat, nothing quite compares to starting up the engine and hitting the road.
Many of us, though, are so fixated on our love of driving that we tend to forget about the perks that come with being a passenger. After all, you don’t have to dislike driving to enjoy taking over as co-pilot for a while!
When you check out the 2016 Hyundai model lineup at our VA showroom, it won’t take long to see that comfort isn’t a quality that’s exclusive to the driver’s seat. With available features in many models that include heated and ventilated front seats, leather trim, and multi-directional adjustable support, it isn’t hard to get comfortable.
Of course, the mantle of co-pilot comes with its share of responsibilities. One timeless duty that comes with the shotgun seat is the role of navigator. Fortunately, Hyundai’s available touchscreen navigation systems with voice-recognition have taken the grunt work out of the equation. Even so, riding up front gives you the best vantage point for spotting the next greasy spoon diner you’ll be stopping at on your road trip!
Since you won’t need to spend your time up front struggling to fold a map back up, you can commit your full focus to crafting the perfect playlist for the road ahead. Whether you’re plugging in your MP3 player, streaming audio with Bluetooth, or kicking it old school with that perfect mix CD, everyone knows that passengers make the best DJs.
From behind the wheel to the backseat, Hyundai is focused on crafting the perfect machines for the open road. To learn more about the automaker’s latest models, or to schedule a test drive, be sure to contact us online or to call the Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg team at (800) 764-2652 today!

You’ve seen it covered on the evening news, parodied in movies, and maybe even experienced it firsthand: it’s the nightmare of holiday travel. With so many people around the country bustling to get to someplace else, it doesn’t take much for things to get backed up.
Thanksgiving is no time for stress, so check out these tips to help ensure that your holiday weekend goes smoothly!
Plans aren’t always flexible, but a small amount of wiggle room can make a big impact on your journey. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the most hectic travel day of the year, with the following Sunday hot on its heels.
Whether you’re driving or flying, finding ways to avoid these days is sure to save you some headaches. For jetsetters, it can also have a big impact on ticket prices.
Regardless of when you’re able to depart, a last minute hiccup can really throw a wrench into the works. By doing as much as you can ahead of time, you can reduce the chances of something going wrong at the last second.
Start by listing all of the things you need to bring along. Pack what you can, and keep the list of last minute grabs – things like your phone charger, toothbrush, and that sweet potato casserole from the fridge – where you can see it and won’t forget about it.
The holidays are the perfect time to disconnect and get back to basics while you catch up with family, but the trip there is no time to abandon the latest features!
Whether you’re driving to your destination or just trying to get to the airport on time, knowing what’s ahead is key to making it there in a timely fashion. With incredible features from Honda like satellite-linked navigation with voice-recognition and HD digital traffic, you can look forward to the smoothest trip possible.
Wherever you’re headed for the holidays, the most important thing is to stay safe and enjoy the time you spend with your loved ones. For more information on smart travel ideas for the season, be sure to contact Pohanka Honda online or to call our team at (301) 899-7800 today!

If you’re driving a Volkswagen, then you’ve already taken the most important step toward making your time on the road more enjoyable: you’ve gotten into a vehicle that’s stylish, exciting, and comfortable! The next step, of course, is to take things to the next level by making some one-of-a-kind upgrades behind the wheel. The team at Pohanka Volkswagen has some suggestions!
With so much technology built into your Volkswagen, you practically have it all. Even so, there are some fun little aftermarket extras that can make the space more personalized.
Winter is almost here, so you might want to consider a plug-in heated steering wheel cover or even a travel electric blanket for your legs if you want to be 100% cozy this season.
If those aren’t quite your style, then think about some other gadgets that can make things more convenient for you. From scent diffusers to GPS parking place locators, there are myriad options out there to take advantage of your 12V power outlet!
We certainly don’t recommend any distractions while driving, but who’s to say you can’t get some work done while you’re in park? Phone and tablet mounts are available in a wide range of styles, making it easy to fly through your inbox or check out other resources.
For a more hardcore approach, you can even find flexible extenders and surfaces for your center console. These are designed for a universal fit, and can work with everything from small tablets to full-sized laptops to help you crush your to-do list.
Whether you’re already a neat freak or you’re just now trying to break the habit of pouring your belongings into the back seat, extras can make it easy to keep everything in its place. This is ideal for busy drivers who are bouncing from place to place with gear and bags in tow!
From compartmentalized storage options to clothes racks and hangers for your headrests, the market offers plenty of ways to sort through the mess. Say goodbye to losing track of your favorite sweatshirt in a pile of clutter for months on end!
Whatever route you take, the most important thing is to hone in on your own personal sense of style when choosing your extras. After all, your car is an extension of your personality and it should reflect that.
