First Drive: 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan

  First Drive: 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan All-new Tiguan proves Volkswagen is finally stepping up its SUV gameBut, one just has to remember the Passat four-door, formerly an upscale model VW used to compete with the German luxury brands, now a North Americanized and mainstream, lower-priced, higher-volume family sedan that competes with the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, et al.

Through the Amazon Prime Now platform, members will be able to schedule a 45- to 60-minute test drive with a VW Atlas expert, requesting vehicle “We are thrilled to offer Prime members the chance to experience the all-new Atlas through the convenient delivery of a test drive directly to your door.”

Volkswagen is making it easier for potential customers to test drive the new 2018 Atlas sport utility vehicle by offering bookings through Amazon.

The VW Atlas Prime Now Test Drive Program has several restrictions attached, with the most prominent one being that customers be in the Chicago and Los Angeles areas. And, it’s only available over two successive weekends — Sept. 22 to 24, and Sept. 29 to Oct. 1.

Still, Amazon Prime members in those restricted zip codes will have a chance at a limited number of convenient, home-based 60-minute test drives in an Atlas SEL Premium.
