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

Gas prices in BC continue to fluctuate and we have no idea what the price will be in the following weeks. Summer is the time that we want to take vacation and go on road trips, and many British Columbians aren’t going very far due to the price of gas.  We are all looking for ways to curb and cut our fuel costs. Why not try to get into a VW? Volkswagen has one of the leading fuel economy brands on the market with many models to fit your needs.

Volkswagen Golf- 8.2L/100km city, 6.3L/100km highway (E-Golf is available soon!)

Comparable to the Volkswagen Golf is the Mazda 3 which has 8.5L/100km city and 6.2L/100km highway.

Volkswagen Passat- 9.3L/100km city, 6.5L/100km highway

Comparable to the Volkswagen Passat is the Honda Accord which has 10.4L/100km city and 7.4L/100km highway.

Volkswagen Jetta- 7.8L/100km city, 5.9L/100km highway

Comparable to the Volkswagen Jetta is the Toyota Corolla which has 8.2L/100km city and 6.5L/100km highway.

Volkswagen Tiguan- 10.7L/100km city, 8.0L/100km highway

Volkswagen Atlas- 12.0L/100km city, 8.6L/100km highway

A comparable SUV to these Volkswagens is the Honda Pilot which has 13.0L/100km city and 9.3L/100km highway.

When we compare Volkswagen to brands such as Honda, Hyundai, Ford, Kia and others, Volkswagen comes out ahead in most cases. Small differences in fuel economy between a Toyota Corolla and a Volkswagen Passat for example, can translate into hundreds of dollars in savings in fuel costs over the course of a year. At Chilliwack Volkswagen 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 on fuel in a Volkswagen!
