The New York Auto Show is one of the most anticipated automotive events of the year. There will definitely be plenty of futuristic concept cars and advanced technology in attendance. However, we would like to dedicate today’s Volkswagen blog post to our 2013 Volkswagen Golf.


Some of our Lindsay Volkswagen fans in Sterling may wonder, why spend a whole blog post about a Golf? Well, our favorite little hatchback is up for the prestigious World Car of the Year award, which will be presented during the New York Auto Show in late March.


A diverse panel of 66 judges from all over the world will cast their votes and deem one lucky automaker the ultimate bragging right: World Car of the Year manufacturer. The judges will look at everything from value, merit, environmentalism, appeal and significance. Needless to say, the panel will definitely have their work cut out for them.


Previous winners have been all different types and styles of vehicles. Everything from speedy sports cars, exotic supercars to sleek crossovers have earned their way to the podium. Which leaves us here at Lindsay Volkswagen to ask the question: why not our favorite hatchback?


In the meantime, while we wait before finding out with our Volkswagen Golf has what it takes to be a World Car of the Year, you can still schedule a test drive in any of our new or used Volkswagen models. We will happily work with you once you’ve decided on a specific model and help you find a suitable Volkswagen loan or lease. We are located at 22455 Cedar Green Road in Sterling, VA 20166.

Over the past few years, the crossover has become wildly popular due to its ideal size, handling, and safety rating.  Most automakers have at least one or two in their new vehicle lineup, but we don’t think any can compare to the 2013 Chevrolet Traverse.

Our car experts here at Lindsay Chevrolet aren’t the only ones who think this crossover blows away the competition, especially when it comes the keeping drivers and passengers safe.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently honored the Traverse with a Five-Star Safety Rating.  This is the highest honor a vehicle can get from the group, and with six airbags, StabiliTrak, and OnStar, this model definitely deserves it.

This vehicle stands out in other areas, too.  Inside, entertainment options abound, and with Chevrolet MyLink, which uses Pandora Internet Radio, Bluetooth, and a number of other popular applications, no one in the cabin will ever get bored on a road trip ever again.

The Traverse also has an unexpected utility range and can handle family outings, camping trips, and more.  It has plenty of cargo room (116.3 cubic feet) and split-folding rear seats, making packing for trips a breeze. And with its 3.6-liter V6 engine and an output of 281 horsepower, you won’t have any trouble speeding down the interstate with a car full of gear and kids.

If you’d like to take a closer look at the Traverse or any of the other new and used Chevy inventory here at our 15605 Jefferson Davis Highway Woodbridge, VA 22191 showroom, stop in today and we can set you up with a test drive.

Here at Lindsay Volkswagen of Sterling, we know that our 2013 Volkswagen GTI is a popular choice among drivers in the greater Fairfax area. That’s why we were excited to see that not one, but two new redesigns were debuted at the Chicago Auto Show.


Officially, the two new GTI variants are called the GTI Wolfsburg Edition and the GTI Driver’s Edition. Both will be extremely rare and are being released as limited-run models. Both of the variants have similar exterior designs but what enthusiasts from the Dulles area will probably care more about is what lies under the hood.


The GTI Wolfsburg Edition will only be available to 2,000 lucky Volkswagen fans and sports the same GTI trim as our entry level offering. Drivers will have the ability to pick and choose transmissions to match their automotive needs and driving style. When sporting a six-speed manual transmission the Wolfsburg Edition will run $25,095. Conversely, when equipped with an DSG dual-clutch automatic, the MSRP is $26,195.


Driver’s in the Tysons Corner area who are looking for more convenience and comfort features like a sunroof and navigation package, look no further than our GTI Driver’s Edition. While 3,000 units are scheduled to be produced, don’t be complacent, these models are going to fly off of dealership lots.

Come and take a test drive of our Volkswagens. You can learn more at LindsayVolkswagen.com.


If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our two GTI variants, please do not hesitate to contact us. Of course, if a GTI isn’t your style we have an extensive new and used Volkswagen inventory. We’re confident that we can find the perfect vehicle for anyone. Stop by today, we are located at 22455 Cedar Green Road in Sterling, VA 20166.

We know that there are already plenty of Chevrolet Cruze fans in the greater Woodbridge area, but we think we’ll convert a few more with the latest announcement from Chevy: starting with the 2014 model, this sedan will have a clean turbo diesel option.


There are a lot of reasons to love the 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel.  It gets an impressive 42 miles per gallon the highway, but doesn’t compromise on performance.  The 2.0-liter engine produces 148 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, and the car can go from zero-to-sixty in 8.6 seconds.  With specs like these, this diesel will leave its German competition in the dust.


The introduction of this green model shows just how serious Chevrolet and other automakers are about improving fuel efficiency for the benefit of our wallets and the planet.  Diesel has suffered from a bad reputation in the past, but obviously, manufacturers and consumers are looking beyond it and embracing the potential of the technology.


The revamped 2014 Chevy Cruze will also feature the MyLink infotainment system and has a two-year maintenance plan and five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty that make this car a great, reliable option for our customers.  It will be available later this year, and when it rolls onto our lot here at 15605 Jefferson Davis Highway Woodbridge, VA 22191, we’ll let you know on our blog.


In the meantime, stop by Lindsay Chevrolet and our team of Chevy experts can help you go through ournew and used inventory.  Our finance team is also available to help you decide which car loan or lease is right for you.
