MotorWeek Recognizes the Excellence of Volkswagen ID.4 and Taos

2022 Volkswagen ID.4 & Volkswagen Taos | Bozeman, MT

Volkswagen is proud to produce stylish, dependable cars that — ultimately — are a joy to drive. This commitment to engineering excellence is evident in the awards that the automaker wins every year. The most recent accolades that recognized the brand’s stellar vehicles were the 2022 MotorWeek Driver’s Choice Awards.

The automotive publication’s editorial staff evaluate over 150 models every year, identifying the top ones in a list of categories. This year, two Volkswagen models took home awards: the 2021 ID.4 EV and 2021 Taos — both of which are for sale at Volkswagen of Bozeman.

The Volkswagen ID.4 received praise for its groundbreaking design as the automaker’s first global electric vehicle. Built on an innovative modular MEB platform, the ID.4 shows the brand’s commitment to a greener future — and to making eco-friendly driving fun. Its 295-horsepower version that uses AWD is particularly enthralling. The judges recognized the ID.4 as the first “everyman’s EV.”

Another recent addition to the Volkswagen SUV lineup is the Taos, a compact utility model that stands apart for its spacious seating, massive cargo area, dependable performance, and convenient digital displays. 

If either of these award-winning SUVs sounds interesting to you, contact Volkswagen of Bozeman to schedule a test drive of the VW ID.4 or Taos.

ID.4 EV Added to Petersen Automotive Museum

2022 ID.4 EV | Bozeman, MT

Last summer, driver Rainer Zietlow and photographer Derek Collins set off on a cross-country adventure in a Volkswagen ID.4 EV to attempt a new record for the longest journey by an EV in a single country. In total, the team traveled over 35,000 miles across 48 states and visited 628 Volkswagen dealerships. Now, that record-breaking car is headed to the Petersen Automotive Museum in L.A. as part of the new “Building an Electric Future” exhibit.

The Volkswagen ID.4 EV USA tour vehicle is part of a large exhibit that spans five rooms. The exhibit shows how the ID..4’s modular electric drive matrix, or MEB, platform was engineered, as well as how the EVs are assembled. The famous vehicle itself will await guests in the final room as they see what the finished product looks like and learn exactly what it’s capable of.

This exhibit is the latest in a series at the Petersen Automotive Museum called “Driving Toward Tomorrow.” The series examines how the automotive industry is preparing for an electric future and includes actual concept vehicles designed by automakers as they try out new technologies to determine what their future lineups will look like.

You can reserve your 2022 Volkswagen ID.4 now by contacting the sales team at Volkswagen of Bozeman.


Forbes Wheels Says 2022 Golf GTI and Golf R Are Superior Sports Cars

Volkswagen Golf GTI & Golf R | Bozeman, MT

When you think of the best sports cars on the market, which models come to mind? If you don’t already, you should be including the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Golf R in that list.

Forbes recognizes the stellar performance and style offered by these two VW models, as the 2022 Golf GTI and Golf R were given Forbes Wheels’ Sports Car of the Year awards recently. As the winners in their sports car categories, these two VW hatchbacks were impressive enough to win over the judges and take home Car of the Year trophies.

Andrew Wendler, Assistant Editor at Forbes Wheels, said that “the 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI and Golf R stand shoulder to shoulder with sports cars of all stripes regardless of price.” While other sports cars for sale in Bozeman may have a more prominent reputation, the performance and style of the Golf GTI and Golf R are just as good for an even better price.

It’s no surprise to us at Volkswagen of Bozeman that the Golf GTI and Golf R received such recognition, as both models received updates for this model year. Now they have lighter build weights, stronger engines, revised suspensions, and bigger breaks.

If you’re interested in driving these award-winning Volkswagen models, you can find them here at Volkswagen of Bozeman.
