With the support of local Volkswagen dealerships such as Auto Haus Volkswagen in Winnipeg (http://www.knightvw.ca/
, Volkswagen Canada has achieved 20 consecutive months of record vehicle sales. August 2013 sales totaled 5,804, which closely beat the August 2012 sales record of 5,782. Total year-to-date sales so far this year reached 42,248, which is a 7 percent increase over year-to-date sales last year at this same time.
Many vehicles in the Volkswagen lineup are continuing to sell well, but the Volkswagen Jetta (http://www.autohausvw.com/vehicles/2013/jetta/landingpage...
) outsold every model this past month with 2,708 total units moved. As the 2014 Volkswagen models continue to roll out, excitement continues to mount around the latest engine option. A 1.8L turbocharged direct-injection engine will be joining the extensive powertrain selection that is already available to the majority of Volkswagen models. It is lighter and more fuel-efficient than the 2.5L engine that it will be replacing, which is all part of Volkswagen’s “intelligent downsizing” plan, aiming to provide impressive fuel efficiency without compromising performance or space.
The second-highest selling vehicle last month was the 2013 Volkswagen Golf (http://www.knightvw.ca/new-inventory/golf/
). Total August 2013 sales reached 1,132 with year-to-date sales totaling 8,477. The 2013 Volkswagen Golf offers versatility in the form of various models in order to suit a range of styles or budgets. The Volkswagen Golf 5-Door can come equipped with either the 2.5L 5-cylinder engine that puts out 170 hp or the 2.0L TDI Clean Diesel engine that’s capable of 140 hp and 236 lb-ft. of peak torque. The clean diesel option offers responsive performance while maintaining an estimated efficiency rating of 6.7 L/100 km in the city and 4.6 L/100 km on the highway.
