Ah, Kamloops. We here at Volkswagen of Kamloops think our city is the perfect mix of the hustle and bustle of city life along with the quiet serenity of outdoors life. We’ve got our world-class ski resort, and 200 lakes within an hour’s drive. We’ve also got strong educational and healthcare systems for family life. Your lifestyle requires the right vehicle to accommodate it, and you’ll find there’s a Volkswagen for everyone and every family. Let’s take a good look at the different types of Volkswagen vehicles out there to find the particular vehicle for your particular lifestyle:
For Growing Families
The Volkswagen Golf and Passat
It’ll take you from one end of the city to the other easily, and then beyond on family road trips. It’s nimble, accommodating and versatile–everything a family could hope for, and it has a sporty look to it too, distinguishing it from all the SUVs out there. Family, friends, sports gear and everything else you could possibly think about can fit nicely into the Golf SportWagen, especially, and as for tech, a standard rear-view camera and available satellite navigation are here to make family life so much simpler. For a great experience off the beaten path, the Golf Alltrack has a raised suspension and an Electronic Transverse Differential Lock (XDS) System that offers a tighter grip and smoother cornering on the road.
The family sedan is one of the most elegant options for family transportation, offering aesthetics and amenities everyone is sure to enjoy. With the Passat, this is especially true. Standard heated seats (and available rear heated seats) definitely help ease the symptoms of cold Canadian weather, and with a powerful 3.6L VR6 280 HP engine under the hood, you can take on those Canadian winters with confidence.
For the Outdoors Person
The VW Tiguan
The Tiguan has been recently redeveloped from the ground up to be longer, roomier and more refined than it’s ever been before. In fact, the Tiguan has plenty of room with 40/20/40 split folding rear seats and available third-row seating, making carpooling a possibility for the kids’ classmates or sports teammates. Available 4MOTION All-Wheel Drive is there to make easy work of Canadian winters.
For City Dwellers, Students
The Jetta and Beetle
The Jetta is one of the most efficient and economical city vehicles out there. Loaded with tech, perfect for students. A rear-view camera comes standard, and a plethora of driver-assistance and -convenience technologies are available too, including Blind Spot Detection, Front Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control and more. If what you want is an enjoyable, affordable way of getting around the city, then the Jetta is a great choice.
The iconic Beetle is another excellent choice here too. Stylish and sporty, and affordable too, the Beetle is beloved by its owners. Bluetooth connectivity, and available Fender® Premium Audio System and Available Composition Media are all here to connect you to your Beetle that much more.
For Performance Enthusiasts
Golf GTI, Golf R
The GTI and R models of the Golf are more for performance… fanatics than for anyone else. A performance hatch is just what you need if you’re looking for an enthusiastic driving experience along with the convenience and versatility that come with a hatch. The Golf R is capable of 0–100 km/h in less than 5 seconds, to give you an idea of what you’re getting into here.
