Volkswagen – What’s New For 2024
Volkswagen has had an exciting last few years. With the rollout of the ID.4 EV and updates to its high-performance hatchbacks, the GTI, and Golf R. Heading into 2024, the automaker has more updates planned, including the move to include its IQ.Drive safety tech in every model with an automatic transmission. Here are other model-specific changes coming for the year.
Volkswagen’s sleek four-door coupe will be discontinued after 2024, but before then, Arteon comes in two trims and gets minor styling changes for the new model year. Pricing for the SEL R-Line trim starts at $49,135, including $1,350 in destination charges.
Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport
The largest SUVs in VW’s lineup are getting a refresh for 2024, which includes an updated interior, no more V6 engine option, and a revised four-cylinder engine with more torque. The turbocharged 2.0-liter engine now makes 269 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, which the automaker said puts it on par with previous model years’ VR6. Interior upgrades include leatherette trim on the dash and center console, available 30-color ambient lighting, and nicer materials throughout. VW includes a heated steering wheel and ventilated front seats as standard equipment for 2024, and the automatic climate control system now works with voice controls. The Atlas starts at $39,075, and the Atlas Cross Sport at $38,065, including destination.
Golf GTI and Golf R
Volkswagen’s performance hatchbacks get power-folding exterior models and new wheel designs. Some had expected the automaker to reconfigure the cars’ confusing touch-based controls, but that change isn’t coming for 2024. Pricing for the GTI starts at $32,915, and the Golf R starts at $46,605, and both get a $1,150 destination charge.
Jetta and Jetta GLI
The long-running sedan adds standard safety tech for 2024, and the GLI variant is available in a new 40th Anniversary trim. The entry-level S trim gets a synthetic leather-wrapped steering wheel, and gear shift lever, and the top GLI Autobahn adds a heated steering wheel. The base Jetta starts at $22,585, and the GLI at $29,235.
The compact Taos is VW’s smallest SUV in the U.S. and now comes standard with IQ.Drive. Its interior got an update with new augmented stitching, and all models add more tech, including rain-sensing wipers and a heated steering wheel for the base S trim. VW offers a new Black package for the midrange SE trim that brings a black roof, wheels, and black exterior trim.
The Tiguan got new features for the base S trim in 2024, including a leatherette-wrapped steering wheel and standard IQ.Drive safety tech. The SUV also gets updated infotainment for the new model year with standard wireless charging. Pricing starts at $29,855 after a $1,350 destination charge.
