Fuel Economy and the Rising cost of Gas in BC- Why Choose VW?

When Volkswagen is compared to brands such as Honda, Hyundai, Ford, Kia and others, Volkswagen comes out ahead in most cases. What might seem like a small difference in fuel economy between a Toyota Corolla and a Volkswagen Jetta for example, can translate into hundreds of dollars in savings in fuel costs. At Abbotsford Volkwagen we also have older model TDI (diesel) Volkswagens available if you are looking for a used car that will save you more in fuel. Diesel is generally less expensive and diesel engines have a further boost to fuel economy. Give us a call today to see how we can save you money in a Volkswagen!
