The introduction of the GTI in the US also helped in establishing Volkswagen’s so-called pocket rocket segment.

The launching of the iconic New Beetle and the TDI diesel vehicles in the US have increased VW’s sales volume by over half a million by 1998. As a matter of fact, Volkswagen has been able to sell over 800,000 diesel vehicles in the US ranging from its fuel-sipping 1977 Rabbit diesel to the powerful, torque-rich 2007 Toureg V10 TDI.
Volkswagen is optimistic that its high sales volume will continue with the introduction of the hardtop convertible segment with the Eos and its exclusive combination of sunroofs, coupe and convertible wrapped in one stylish package.
