Volkswagen: People's Car
Known for a more upscale driving and ownership experience, Volkswagen, shortened to VW, is a German automaker headquartered in Wolfsburg. It is the flagship marque of the Volkswagen Group, which is German multinational automotive manufacturing company responsible for designing, manufacturing and distributing passenger and commercial vehicles, motorcycles, engines and turbomachinery and offering related services including financing, leasing and fleet management. Founded by the German Labour Front (Deutsche Arbeitsfront) in Berlin in 1937 under the project called "People's Car". But in fact, Volkswagen did not get its name until the British Army took it over. Now, despite the utilitarian and economical nature of its one of the most famous and successful vehicles, Volkswagen is still positioned as a more upscale brand.
Strength Through Joy
Since Volkswagen was built under the background that most automaker produced luxury models and the average German could rarely afford anything more than a motorcycle, and it has always stuck to produce vehicles with superior level of performance and comfort, adopt and develop advanced technology to improve driving experience. DSG, short for Direct Shift Gearbox, is one example. Working as one unit, direct-shift gearbox is two separate manual gearboxes and clutches enclosed in a unit. When the gear is running, the next gear is selected for the next gear and is on standby. When the shift point is reached, the switch between gears is completed in a flash and the change is done very quickly. And just because of such quick shifting, the driving power isn't interrupted, thus, drivers could enjoy the comfort and convenience of an automatic transmission with the fuel efficient and sporty feel of a manual gearbox. Another technology Volkswagen developed is the TSI (Turbo Stratified Injection) engine. It could make the fuel and air intake of atomized spray into the accurate, full and uniform mixed and realize homogeneous combustion. Pair with the DSG, it satisfies by maximizing driving experience and good fuel economy. More recent technologies Volkswagen adopts and develops include the ESP (Electronic Stabilization Program), which is linked to the EDL (Electronic Differential Lock), EBC (Engine Brake Control) and ABS (Anti-Brake System). It could reduce the engine's power and engage the brakes to one or more wheels to regain control of the vehicle before the wheels lose their grip. While the Driver Assistance Systems include the ACC (Automatic Distance Control), POPS (Proactive Occupant Protection System) and the FAATMS (Front Assist Ambient Traffic Monitoring System), they work together to make sure driving a Volkswagen is safer.
When it comes to popular and successful Volkswagen models, I bet no one won't exclude the Beetle. It officially is called as Volkswagen Type 1 and is the world's most influential car in the 20th century. Being produced from 1938 to 2003 as a two-door rear-engine economy car, now, the design of Beetle has evolved from its functionality-driven origins to the irrepressibly cheerful face. The compact crossover vehicle (CUV) Tiguan was introduced in 2007 is also a very exceptional vehicle. It once received a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP to prove its high level of reliability.

While the Jetta as a compact family car has been produced since 1979 and has an enormous fan base. Now, the Jetta is in its sixth generation as one of the best-selling VW models.
