2019 Golf GTI

A golf, just like always, but with all the new tech of 2019. The new Golf has a top speed of 155 MPH and can get to 60 MPH in only 4.9 seconds. Might impressive for a small car.

2019 Tiguan

The re-imagined 2019 Tiguan has a top speed of 142 MPH and will take between 6 and 9 seconds to reach 60. You can see the full specs courtesy of Car Info.

The 2019 Beetle

Iconic, is not a big enough word to describe the Beetle - but t has never been well-known for speed. The 2019 version of this popular car has a 1.4l 2C engine so it can't go as fast as others can. It's top speed is a little slower than some of the others on the list at 122 MPH.

The 2019 Passat

The Passat doubles the cylinders of the Beetle and throws in a bit more horsepower? But is this Volkswagen staple faster than its foes? The new Passat has a top speed of 147 MPH and can reach 60 MPH in 6 seconds. Not too shabby.

The 2019 Atlas

This is an all new mid-sized SUV type car by Volkswagen, which hasn't been built for speed so much as it has been built for picking the kids up from school. It's top speed is only 135 MPH and it reaches 80 MPH in 16 seconds...

The Arteon

Redesigned from its original release in 2017, the Volkswagen Arteon has a top speed of 155 MPH and can get to 60 MPH in a respectable 5.6 seconds.

So Which 2019 Volkswagen is Fastest?

If you have the need for speed and want the fastest Volkswagen of 2019 then we can only recommend that you try out the Arteon. If you prefer your cars a little smaller than the ever reliable Volkswagen Golf GTI, 2019 edition, is one of the faster, smarter, cooler new cars being introduced this year... and you can never go wrong with a Golf.
