Best 2016 Volkswagen models for college grads and new drivers

2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI: If you’re really looking for a great model that offers a bit of pizzazz without reaching to sky-high sport car prices, this is the model for you. It has the practical features of the Golf, including cargo space and the latest available tech, but it also returns 210 horsepower and has attractive styling cues.

2016 Volkswagen Jetta: This is just the sort of compact car that’s perfect for anyone as it offers subtle styling and a cozy interior, but it also has the new 1.4-liter engine as the base option, returning 150 horsepower so it doesn’t feel underpowered. It also gets excellent fuel economy, whether you’re still pinching pennies to afford better meals than you ate in the dorm, or your new job involves a long commute.

2016 Volkswagen Beetle: Our instincts tell us to buy the vehicle that appeals most to our hearts, and the Beetle is a dream car for many graduates, even if they weren’t around when it was a 60s icon. The model also remains one of the more affordable options in the lineup, which doesn’t hurt. This four-seater is the perfect option for those who’ve been waiting too long to get behind the wheel of a new car.

Save money with the Volkswagen College Graduate ProgramCollege Grad Program

One of the hardest parts of getting a new vehicle is the fact that you need yet another loan. While there are plenty of sources to help students get through college, it seems far too many banks see those without a credit history as a liability. Our VW College Graduate Program offers special financing offers to new or upcoming graduates, without the need for a cosigner. To be eligible you must have graduated within the last 24 months or expect to graduate within the next six. You also have to have a full-time job and be able to provide proof of your income.

Aside from financing offers and the ability to get a loan without a cosigner, one of the main benefits of the VW College graduate program is the fact that your first month’s payment is waived. This is up to $800, though you’d be looking far above and beyond our vehicle suggestions to reach that monthly payment. For full details, contact us here at Napleton Volkswagen Springfield.
