Volkswagen is also on pace for an annual record, having sold 44,919

The month of October will mark the arrival of the new 2013 models,
including the recently redesigned Beetle, which will now be available

Golf Wagon, Passat and Touareg models, these engines are but one
example of Volkswagen's "Bluemotion Technologies," and part of

initiative.  
The 2013 versions of the top-selling Jetta and Passat models have
both had their value equations enhanced with more standard features
and lower prices. The Jetta will now be available from just $14,990,
almost $900 less than last year's model.
