Necessity may be the mother of invention, but it’s innovation that drives progress for the folks at Volkswagen! The automaker is committed to bringing drivers the enhancements, improvements, and upgrades that they crave, and it shows at our College Park area Volkswagen dealership.
The automaker recently unveiled a collection of upgrades for the 2017 Volkswagen Golf range, capturing the attention of attendees at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. From its outer appearance to its inner workings, the 2017 Volkswagen Golf brings College Park area drivers more to love than ever before!
In the front and rear, each version of the 2017 Golf features updated fascia and lighting. What might be most exciting for drivers who are eager to go green, though, are the upcoming updates to the 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf electric model!
Under the hood of the upcoming 2017 e-Golf, shoppers will find a newly upgraded electric battery that packs a punch. The new 35.8 kWh battery provides a significant increase in range, bringing the e-Golf from the model’s current 83-mile range to a projected 124-mile range.
In addition to going farther, the 2017 e-Golf is also set to provide enhanced sporty performance. Volkswagen projects that the electric model will be capable of shaving more than a second off of its 0-60 mph time to check in at 9.6 seconds.
Charging the 2017 e-Golf will be faster and easier, too, thanks to the DC fast charging system. Available on the base SE and standard on the SEL Premium, this DC fast charging system provides an 80% charge in about an hour, allowing drivers to quickly get the power that they need.

When you slide behind the wheel of your favorite Volkswagen, heading out for an aimless joyride can be one of the most freeing experiences there is. When it comes to business, though, it’s typically best to have a solid plan for how you want to grow and move forward.
Having a clear plan is beneficial to both your company and your customers, and this is certainly the case with Volkswagen. At our College Park area Volkswagen dealership, we were certainly thrilled to learn of all that the automaker has in store for the coming months and years here in the United States.
While many of these changes won’t take place over night, we’re thrilled to see what’s coming around the bend. Take a look at what to expect!
Crossover and SUV models like the Tiguan and the Touareg are certainly popular among the 2017 VW models at our College Park area dealership, and the automaker plans to build on that popularity. As VW brand CEO Herbert Diess said, “We will be significantly stepping up our activities in the USA. The main focus will be on the key segments in the country, large SUVs and limousines. In those segments, we will be strongly expanding our range.”
This commitment to playing a larger role as an SUV producer is already evident in the arrival of a larger SUV: the 2017 Volkswagen Atlas. This family vehicle is set to arrive in the coming months, and introduced drivers to a larger body style and accommodating cabin.
Those looking to reduce their environmental impact will be excited to learn that Volkswagen is continuing to focus on the same goal. Volkswagen is aiming to bring more electric vehicles to North America, with a goal of selling over 1 million electric vehicles globally per year by 2025.
To learn more about the automaker’s future plans, as well as the innovative features that are already available on the 2017 VW lineup, don’t hesitate to contact Pohanka Volkswagen directly by calling (301) 808-7100 today!

While your first time ever getting behind the wheel may have been nerve-racking, it likely didn’t take you long to discover the incredible sense of freedom that comes along with driving. The only thing better than that untethered feeling is the sensation you get when you turn the key and start your own car for the first time!
At our VW dealer near College Park, we know that first time car shoppers have their own unique set of circumstances and factors to consider while shopping. If you’re like many first time drivers, then chances are that price is going to play a big role in your decision making. Even so, there’s no need to settle when choosing a vehicle!
With your first car, in particular, you want a vehicle that you can count on to provide you with a reliable performance and great safety features. As such, you don’t want to settle for the first car you see with a For Sale sign tossed in the window. Instead, take the smart approach while shopping for a used car!
On our lot, you’ll find a wealth of dependable used cars to choose from that have all passed our rigorous inspection. For even more peace of mind, we suggest checking out the certified pre-owned Volkswagen models on our lot near College Park!
These late model vehicles carry not only our steal of approval, but also that of Volkswagen. Along with benefits like being recent models with relatively low mileage, these certified models also include the perk of limited warranty coverage from the manufacturer. The result is significant savings on a vehicle that provides the confidence that you deserve in your first car!
To learn more about our current inventory of certified pre-owned VW models, or to schedule a test drive, be sure to contact us online or to call the Pohanka Volkswagen team at (301) 808-7100 today!
