While it would be just fantastic if you could preserve that “new car smell” in your 2016 VW Beetle interior, VW Eos, VW Jetta or whichever VW you may be driving, let’s face it – life happens and your car can start smelling like those unwashed gym clothes a lot sooner than you expected!
I’ve always been a big fan of my environment having a pleasant smell; whether from sprays, candles, incense or just plain letting the fresh air in, scents have a big impact on how you’re feeling during the day. The “scent-sational” team at my Indio area Volkswagen store let me know that the smells you have in your car affect how you feel during your drive as well. That totally makes “scents” to me (HA!), so I decided to look into ways you can get your car smelling cheery for this holiday season and perhaps help put you in a better mood when you hop in your Volkswagen to do some holiday shopping.
Luckily, most of the companies who specialize in festive car freshener scents and accessories are on the same page, and most of them have already started rolling out their holiday offerings. While you won’t find one that smells like a Thanksgiving turkey, there are at least a few that will definitely get you in the spirit.
Here are the top four:
This is the scent I imagine would work perfectly in a 2016 VW Beetle, with its rounded body lines conjuring up pumpkins, and more importantly, pumpkin pie! We’ve passed Halloween, but the pumpkin makes an appearance on the table at both Thanksgiving and Christmas – pies, tarts, soufflés and let’s not forget the Pumpkin Spiced Latte we love to grab when we’re getting ready for an extra long shopping excursion.
Your Volkswagen Routan, Tiguan or Touareg more than likely fits the bill for picking out that Christmas tree near Palm Springs, or other decorative evergreens. Get ready for that mountainside trek by getting your interior smelling as crisp and fresh as a pine forest!
For some reason, the warm scent of cinnamon reminds me of the 2016 VW Jetta – along with the turbocharged 2016 Volkswagen Passat, it’s the grown-up car – the cinnamon scent in your interior will bring to mind eggnog, pfeffernusse and lebkuchen. (If you’ve never had the last two, you’ve simply got to try them! German holiday treats are the best, just like your Volkswagen!)
Rounding it out, the 2016 Volkswagen Golf TSI is ready for the gingerbread scent, no doubt! With it’s adorable styling, compact lines, and TDI option to give you that extra get up and go, the VW Golf is ready to remind you of gingerbread cookies, gingerbread men, gingerbread houses, and gingerbread lattes! Who says they don’t like the holidays?!
Whether or not you’re driving a new or pre-owned Volkswagen in Palm Springs, you can step up your scent game and get ready to take on this holiday season… no matter what it brings! Stop by your Coachella Volkswagen store today and see what holiday Volkswagen incentives you can add to your wishlist, and let their professional VW finance team help make those wishes of yours a reality. It may be too early to open the presents under the tree just yet, but you’ll feel like you’re opening one every day when you get in your brand new Volkswagen in the Coachella Valley.
