Volkswagen is, simply put, the king of cars. The Volkswagen Group is the world’s largest automobile manufacturer, thanks in no small part to its namesake flagship brand, and it continues to design and produce some of the most beloved vehicles around.
For nearly 70 years, the iconic Volkswagen Beetle populated roads around the globe, leading the way for enduringly popular models like the Golf, Polo, and Jetta. Today, Volkswagen has a comprehensive lineup of cars ranging from the budget-beating Polo Vivo to the elegant Tuareg SUV.
Here in South Africa, VW has a monumental legacy thanks to the success of the locally-produced Citi Golf, based on the Mk 1 Golf, and Mzansi wouldn’t be the same without the sounds of ‘vrrrpha’ Golf GTIs cruising the streets.
Recently, the company has enjoyed success with its Amarok pick-up, arguably the most well-rounded bakkie on the market today. VW is also leading the way in terms of vehicle electrification, as expected from a world leader in automotive technology.
