The United States automotive consumer will be treated to four striking new vehicles from Volkswagen for 2012. Designed specially for the North American market, the 2012 Passat is re-engineered and re-purposed to compete against popular family sedans with more attractive pricing. The production of the new Volkswagen Passat accompanies the completion of the brand's new Chattanooga, Tennessee manufacturing plant that will serve as the home for the sedan's assembly. Volkswagen also makes news in 2012 for completely redesigning their Beetle. Longer but lower in profile compared to the previous version of the offbeat compact car, the new generation 2012 Volkswagen Beetle enters the marketplace with a 600-car Black Turbo Launch Edition. The most powerful Volkswagen Golf to be sold in the United States, the 2012 Golf R is an all-wheel drive vehicle powered through a 256-horsepower turbocharged engine. Last but not least in the 2012 Volkswagen line-up is the reintroduction of the Jetta GLI model. The Volkswagen CC boasts new R-Line, Lux Plus and Lux Limited trim levels for 2012.
