Originally conceived in 1937 as an affordable car for the average German citizen, Volkswagen (which literally translates to "people's car") remains a beloved badge with a fiercely loyal fan base due to its high-quality, low-maintenance vehicles. Once known for quirky cult cars like the Beetle, the Microbus and the Rabbit, today VW remains a frontrunner in design and innovation with its forward-thinking line of stylish rides that now gravitate toward cool rather than kitsch. And although Das Auto may no longer be the exclusive property of the German people, Volkswagen's acclaimed engineering and uniquely European ethos have allowed it to assume its place as a worldwide leader in the global car market.
