Volkswagen Towing Capacity in Grand Rapids, MI

How Much Can You Tow in a Volkswagen?

Intro - The ability to take your life with you is one of the primary goals that Volkswagen has for all its owners around Grand Rapids and Wyoming MI. Along with a focus on fuel economy and reliability, Volkswagen wants its drivers to feel free to explore the world around them. Exploring the world doesn't have to mean leaving behind what's most important, and with a Volkswagen at your fingertips, you won't have to.

The Volkswagen brand has been around for the better part of a century, beginning in 1937 and is well known for producing some of the world's most iconic models. The Beetle and the Golf GTI are the two that stand out the most, but their catalog has also produced some highly reliable and affordable options such as the Jetta and the Tiguan SUV. With world-renowned German engineering under the hood of each vehicle, Volkswagen owners in Kentwood and Allendale MI have the luxury of peace of mind knowing that they don't ever have to worry about being able to get from Point A to Point B.

When it comes to hauling your more expensive toys, Volkswagen has endowed each of their cars with a towing capacity to rival their competition. Beginning at the base of Volkswagen's offerings, the incredibly affordable Jetta sedan has a payload of up to 926 pounds. If you're in the market for a sedan, but want the best possible payload, both trim levels of the Passat give drivers an upgrade in that department with 1,014 pounds of max payload.

Moving on up to Volkswagen's SUV, the base trim level of the Tiguan will give drivers 1,213 pounds of towing which remains consistent even up to its SEL R-Line trim. The next step up in the Volkswagen SUV family, the Atlas gets an equal amount of towing (1,213 pounds) when equipped with the 2.0-liter Turbo engine or when it is upgraded to the 3.6-liter V6.

If you're looking for a compact car with over one thousand pounds of total payload, look no further than the Golf GTI. It's the perfect blend of small size and big strength. The Golf brand also gets over a thousand pounds of towing capacity with its adventurous All-Track model.
