At Auffenberg Volkswagen, we have a wide selection of vehicles, from new Volkswagen models to a diverse list of pre-owned cars — but our most common question is always about Volkswagen: what do the Volkswagen model names mean? We’re here to answer all O'Fallon drivers’ questions, including this popular bit of trivia.

What’s in a Name?

  • Atlas: The first Volkswagen of its kind, the Atlas is a seven-passenger SUV built to carry your family wherever it’s headed. Could there be a better name than the titan who holds the Earth on his shoulders?
  • Beetle: Originally the Volkswagen Type 1, this now-iconic car’s name sprung from a nickname from the way its original design resembled certain beetles (though not The Beatles).
  • CC: The CC is a simple one; it’s just an abbreviation for “Comfort Coupe.”
  • Eos: Eos was a Greek goddess who reigned over the dawn — could there be a more fitting name for a convertible with incredible views of the East St. Louis skyline?
  • Golf: There was a brief trend with the smaller Volkswagen cars — like the Golf — naming them after natural occurrences, and the Golf gets its name from the German for Gulf Stream.
  • Jetta: Much like the Golf, the Jetta takes its name from the German for “Jet Stream.”
  • Passat: Passatwinde is German for “trade winds,” and it completes the naming convention for these 3 popular VW cars.
  • Tiguan: The family-friendly SUV is the fusion of the words “tiger” and “iguana;” a truly unique name for a truly unique vehicle.
  • Touareg: Encouraging new destinations, this SUV was named after the nomadic Tuareg people of the Saharan desert.
