Changes and Adjustments on the 2020 Volkswagen Lineup
The 2020 Volkswagen vehicles are just cresting the horizon, and from this vantage point it looks like a lot of exciting changes have been made. Though we don’t have time to go into every little detail, we picked out a few of the highlights that most joyfully raise our blood pressure. Read on to learn about the key changes and adjustments Volkswagen has performed on their much-anticipated 2020 model lineup!
General Changes for 2020 Volkswagen Models
Most of the 2020 Volkswagen models now have new tech in the form of standardized next-generation Car-Net® and in-vehicle Wi-Fi! You’ll now be able to connect to Wi-Fi on-the-go in more models than ever before, although note that it does require subscribing to a data plan.
To take the smart-device friendliness even further, specific 2020 VW models will have wireless charging on them. Specifically, this feature will be incorporated into the 2020 Jetta, Jetta GLI, and Tiguan.
Finally, the lineup is getting a hefty dose of more safety and driver-assistance features. These include such welcome gizmos as a standard Blind-Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert, Forward Collision Warning, and Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring (otherwise known as Front Assist).
Trim structures are also simplified on several models with the goal of emphasizing value.
The 2020 Volkswagen Golf will be available in just one trim, and it sure is well-equipped. Appropriately titled the Value Edition, this well-rounded configuration brings the new technology referenced above, and is also fitted with upscale features including KESSY® keyless access with push-button start, leatherette seating surfaces, heated front seats, a panoramic tilt-and-slide sunroof, and heated washer nozzles. In addition, to round things out, it’s fitted with standard 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
The 2020 Golf GTI is available in two trims and gets more standard features than before. In addition, an available Autobahn Package brings a variety of upscale elements.
What’s new on the 2020 Volkswagen Passat?
The VW Passat is redesigned for the 2020 model year. The midsize car now comes in four trim levels and features a bolder reworked style. Inside, the engine is upgraded with a new torque converter and new software, enabling it to increase its torque output to 207 pound-feet. The interior gets a new glass-covered touchscreen for the infotainment set-up.
What’s new on the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan?
The 2020 Tiguan gets a new SE R-Line Black trim which brings a bevy of imposing stylistic touches. In addition, certain trims get more features added.
