Of course, “Das Auto” has a literal translation. It means “the car”. But, for us, the meaning
runs a bit deeper. It means that we want to build cars that you love. We want to build cars
that you love to drive and love to look at. We definitely want to build smart, efficient cars that
you feel good about driving. In the end, we don’t want you to think of your Volkswagen as
“the car”. We want you to think of it as “The Car”.
When you look at the 2012 models, you should see what we’re talking about. The Beetle, the
Passat and the Jetta GLI are completely redesigned and reengineered this year. And the Eos and the Golf GTI each have a new look. As usual, of course, we’ve pored
over the details of every vehicle in the lineup to ensure that you’re as proud to drive it out of
your driveway as we are to drive it out of the factory.
BlueMotion™ Technologies isn’t just a single technology, it’s a range of innovations
designed to help the environment and to help you get more out of your driving experience.
We’re deeply committed to improving every aspect of our vehicles. From improved
transmissions and better aerodynamics to weight-reduction technologies that lead to
drastically reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Here are a few innovative
technologies that make the 2012 Volkswagen lineup more efficient:
TDI Clean Diesel – It’s the poster child for our BlueMotion initiative. Running on the
new, industry-standard ultra-low sulphur diesel fuel, the whisper-quiet Volkswagen
TDI Clean Diesel engines offer outstanding fuel economy, incredibly low emissions
and a level of driving enjoyment you really have to feel to believe.
DSG – The Direct Shift Gearbox gives you the convenience of an automatic with the
performance and efficiency of a manual. It’s managed by dual electronically controlled
clutches, so not only do you shift faster, you also get enhanced acceleration and
reduced fuel consumption.
TSI – We devised Turbocharged Stratified Injection to get more power out of smaller
engines. By combining our FSI® direct fuel injection with a turbocharger, we can makeour cars more powerful while keeping fuel consumption and CO2 emissions low.
Every Volkswagen comes standard with many features that work in harmony to
both help you avoid an accident and help protect you if an accident is
unavoidable. And we are constantly updating it, because when it comes to
safety, there is no finish line.
Standard airbags* – Every 2012 Volkswagen comes standard with front
and side airbags for front seat passengers, as well as Side Curtain
Protection®** airbags which can deploy in severe side impacts to help
reduce head injuries for front and rear seat occupants.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC) – ESC helps the driver maintain their
intended course by generating corrective forces. ESC is most effective when
the driver is taking evasive action during sudden manoeuvres, like when
avoiding an accident. This feature is standard on all Volkswagen models.
LATCH (Lower Anchors and Top-tether for CHildren) – Standard in all
Volkswagen models, it allows for LATCH-compatible child seats to connect
to built-in anchors easily and securely.
Anti-intrusion side door beams – High-strength steel reinforcements
in each door which are designed to absorb impact energy to provide
additional protection in side impacts.
Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS) – Once a certain severity of
crash has been detected, all doors are unlocked, the battery terminal is
disconnected from the alternator cable, the fuel supply is shut off, warning
hazards are switched on, and high-consumption electrical components are
shut off, all automatically.
With the 2012 Jetta, innovation comes at a price. Good thing that it’s a positively affordable
one. Looking at its fluid lines and well-thought-out interior (the best-in-class rear leg room*
took some serious thinking), you might not believe the price tag. Take a Jetta for a test drive,
and you really won’t believe it. When you build a great car, everyone should be able to enjoy it. When you integrate dozens
of standard safety features, like 6 airbags and Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS),
everybody will be protected. When you develop intuitive and ergonomically aligned controls,
everyone should be able to use them. Basically, when we designed the 2012 Jetta, we had
everyone in mind.
Meet the 2012 Eos: the only hardtop convertible in its category with a sunroof.
Constructed with German ingenuity and designed for the open road, the 2012 Eos
is the perfect combination of power and sophistication. With beautifully structured
contours and available innovative features like KESSY keyless access with start/stop
button, you've got a car that really makes a statement. The award-winning convertible just got a makeover. After all, the view shouldn't be
the only beautiful thing about a cabriolet. From the leather-wrapped steering wheel,
wind-blocking system and 200-horsepower engine, the Eos is as breathtaking to
look at as it is to drive. In fact, it might be tough to tell if it's the wind making your
hair stand on end, or the car.
Meet the shape of things to come. And a real nice-looking shape, at that. Sporty
sleekness abounds in the completely redesigned 2012 Beetle, inside and out. Thanks
to a longer front end, wider wheelbase, and an available integrated rear spoiler, the
Beetle looks just as aggressive as it handles. The interior follows step with a distinctive
dash setup and a multitude of customizable details. But enough with the introductions.
If you really want to get to know each other, the road is your oyster. How do you improve on an icon? Simple: you make it more powerful. The available 200-horsepower turbocharged TSI engine under the hood of the 2012 Beetle does just that. As does the available specially designed 400-watt Fender® premium audio system.
And the available eye-catching, fiery-red disc brake calipers have plenty of stopping
power – in more ways than one. But when all is said and done, the most powerful thing
about the Beetle is its long history. Good thing then that this next chapter looks epic.cannot come up with it on their own, i you the best and original content available on the web!
The all-new 2012 Passat is a rare breed, for sure. Beneath that sleek, sophisticated exterior
lies the most spacious Passat yet. And that interior is loaded with class-leading premium
features . Designed and engineered in Germany and built in North America, the Passat
represents a new generation in classic sedan design. This is a car built to handle the rigours
of Canadian driving with the refinement and exhilaration you'd expect from Volkswagen. As you'd expect, the Passat is also a responsibly affordable choice . Not that you'd know from
the host of comforts, including a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, Bluetooth"'
connectivity and a multifunction computer. With the Passat, you'll always travel in style, but
you'll also always be firmly parked at the intersection of Premium and Affordable.
You can have your road and drive it too, with the best-of-both-worlds 2012 Tiguan.
Sleek yet bold, sizable but also compact – its versatility shines with rear seats that not only
recline and fold down but also slide forward or back for more rear cargo room or rear
passenger leg room. Standard safety features like front passenger front and side airbags
along with front and rear Side Curtain Protection® are there for your peace of mind.
The Tiguan’s available 4MOTION® all-wheel-drive off-road capability, on the other hand,
is there for whatever comes to mind. We took building the 2012 Tiguan very seriously. You can see that in its fluid yet rigid
structure, the result of energy-absorbing deformation zones and various protective
systems. But just because we took it seriously doesn’t mean you can’t take it for a wild spin.
Why else would we load it up with a 2.0 TSI turbocharged direct-injection
200-horsepower engine? It’s the same engine that adds adrenaline to the Golf GTI. When
you combine that kind of performance with the dynamic handling and reduced vibration
provided by the Tiguan’s compact architecture, you’re in for some serious amusement.
Sure, size is important when it comes to SUVs, but it’s definitely not the only way that the
Touareg measures up. In fact, the Touareg is equal parts brawn and brains. On the one
hand, it’s more than capable of tackling a rugged, 31-degree incline. On the other hand,
it comes standard with heatable, electrically adjustable 8-way front seats and a
voice-activated Bluetooth® system that can instantly download your songs and address
book to a 60 GB hard drive. It has a touch-screen navigation system with 3-D landmarks
and an available automatic tailgate that opens and closes at the touch of a button. It even
boasts a legion of innovations and weight-reduction technologies that substantially reduce
fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. All of which is to say that the Touareg is a redefinition
of everything an SUV can and should be. The exceptionally stylish 2012 Touareg lets you savour the smoothest highway and the
toughest terrain without sacrificing the finer things in life. Start by choosing from two
exceptionally powerful, impressively efficient engines: the 3.6 FSI or the 3.0 TDI Clean
Diesel. Then choose from three very well-thought-out trimlines that all start with standard
features like 4MOTION® all-wheel drive, fuel-efficient 8-speed automatic transmission,
power heatable and adjustable exterior mirrors, a Media Device Interface with iPod®
connectivity and Climatronic® dual-zone climate control. But the list of available luxuries
keeps on going: KESSY keyless access, panoramic power sunroof, Bi-Xenon headlights
with LED technology, power tailgate and Park Distance Control (PDC), just to name a few.
Whether you’re looking for luxury, utility or both, the Touareg is up to the task.
Available in nimble 3-door and handy 5-door models, the 2012 Golf is designed to drive
you happy. But that’s only if German-engineered responsive performance is something you
enjoy. Or if available sport leather seats and sport suspension sound appealing. Both
practical and pleasurable, the 2012 Golf doesn’t just get you there, it also takes you away. Award-earning and head-turning. Not to mention rubber-burning. The 2012 Golf is fully
capable of handling whatever you throw at it. Its convenient pass-through can even
accommodate longer items. And the available Premium 8 touch-screen sound system can
rock your hottest tunes. On the road since 1974, the Volkswagen Golf has seen many
things. And with you behind the wheel, it’ll be sure to see many more.
Shouldn’t the family chauffeur also get to enjoy the ride? Sure, your Very Important
Passengers will enjoy the 2012 Golf Wagon’s many comforts. But so too should the driver.
Take the available Climatronic® dual-zone electronic climate control, for example. Both
you and your front-seat friend can adjust temperature controls to within a degree of your
preference. Same goes for the heatable front seats. Then again, your companions might
be envious that you get the greatest pleasure of all: getting to drive. It’s a big world out there. You’re going to need a lot of room to fit it all in. The 2012 Golf
Wagon is the perfect vehicle to get you from A to Z – with extra space left over for some
numbers and symbols. But if you do really want to see it all, three letters are paramount:
T, D, I. The legendary efficiency and performance of the available TDI Clean Diesel
engine combined with the drivability of the Golf Wagon are guaranteed to turn road
trips into road voyages. Just remember to write.
Take a good look. A real good look. Chances are if you catch a glimpse of the 2012 Golf GTI
on the road, you won’t be seeing its low-profile front grille and tailgate for long. Powered
by the legendary 2.0 TSI 200-horsepower turbocharged engine and equipped with the
Electronic Transverse Differential Lock (XDS for short) to maximize traction and minimize
boredom, it’s never in one place for long. Excluding the head of the pack, of course. You
can always find it there. Buckle up then buckle down. Grab a hold of the leather-wrapped multifunction flat-bottom
sport steering wheel, and watch as the road opens up in front of you. Whether you’re in
the 3-door or the 5-door, the feeling of being in the driver’s seat of the 2012 Golf GTI is
a sensation. Words just don’t do it justice. But if you want to try, feel free to call someone
with the hands-free Bluetooth® mobile phone connectivity with voice activation to describe
We all know that a family vehicle needs to be functional. The Routan is most definitely
functional. The 3.6L, 283-horsepower V6 engine helps. Same goes for the European-tuned
suspension, immaculately designed and finished interior, head-turning good looks and
entertaining features like second-row and available third-row 9-inch video screens,
wireless headphones and remote control. Whether you’re behind its wheel or in its sliding
second-row captain’s chairs, the Routan makes it easy for everyone to enjoy every single
trip you take. Don’t let its sleek exterior fool you – the Routan has plenty of room in store for you.
Just poke your head through either one of the available dual power-sliding doors,
and prepare to be impressed. From the standard sliding second-row captain’s chairs,
to the under-floor storage, to the third-row seats with tailgating function, you’ll notice
excellent uses of space everywhere. And if you fold everything down, you’ll just notice
a lot of space (4 m3, in fact) that you can use for whatever you want. The more time
you spend with the Routan, the more you start to realize that the name “minivan” just
doesn’t apply here.
That’s what we tell people when they point to the CC and ask, “what is it?” or “is that a
(insert name of expensive luxury car here)?” And we get those questions all the time.
Although it’s not that surprising – it does have sleek lines on the outside, premium materials
on the inside, and it’s loaded with the latest technology. It also comes with a fuel-efficient
2.0 TSI 200 hp turbocharged engine, or an available 3.6 FSI 280 hp V6 engine with
4MOTION® all-wheel drive system. The 2012 CC is all about functional luxury. Its leather-wrapped multifunction steering
wheel, Premium 8 touch-screen radio and four individual sport seats labour just as
much as they lavish. Brought to life on Germany’s Autobahn, the CC’s splendidly tuned
performance will bring you to life no matter where you’re driving.
