Remember The Volkswagen Rabbit?

Stacey Wilson
August 17, 2006

Do you remember the Volkswagen Rabbit? Well, if you do not, let me refresh your memory.

First off, the Volkswagen Rabbit has been in production since 1974. This vehicle has been created and produced by Volkswagen AG. Since its birth, The Rabbit has been manufactured and marketed under various names which include the Volkswagen Caribe, the Volkswaegn Cabrio, and the Volkswagen Cabriolet. It is a simple FF compact car with quality Volkswagen car parts yet it finds competition in its segment through the forms of the Chevrolet Cobalt, Ford Focus, Opel Astra, Peugeot 307, Mazda 3, Saturn Ion, Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, and the Renault Megane.

And now, a generation of the Volkswagen Rabbit is ready for the auto market. However, this new vehicle was said to be marketed as the last generation of the Volkswagen Golf hatchback. But at the very last minute, the company has decided on using the Rabbit name for it. But if you do travel to other spots in the world, you will know that it is still marketed bearing the Volkswagen Golf nameplate.

The very famous and popular Volkswagen Beetle was actually replaced the Volkswagen Rabbit during its introduction. And now, Volkswagen has decided on bringing back the type of vehicle that gave the company its popularity and reputation through the Volkswagen Rabbit. And the company sure knows that the best way to bring in more customers is to make sure that this new vehicle version would be sent out and aiming for the compact vehicle segment.

The Volkswagen Rabbit is now offered with either two doors or four. Any version holds a good combination and package of features. As for the price, you sure can find that this vehicle is not too pricey. Imagine, for a vehicle from this brand with good features, you could be able to purchase it for only $14,990 for the version with two doors or for $16,990 for the one with four. It runs on a 2.4 liter inline engine with five cylinders which has the capacity to create 150 horsepower for the vehicle. Its gas mileage is not one of the worst but it is just enough that you do not need to rush to purchase gallons and gallons of gas each time you venture out to the streets and highways.
