New Gear for the New Year

As you’re ringing in the new year, don’t forget to give your car something to celebrate as well. Adding a few new accessories can help keep your ride feeling new well into 2018.

Whether you’re taking up kayaking this year (hello New Year’s resolution to be more fit) or you just need extra space, a set of Base Carrier Bars makes the perfect accessory. Customized attachments for bikes, skis, and snowboards can help you stay active all year long—and leave plenty of space inside to stretch out on the way home.1

The best adventures see their fair share of dirt and debris. No problem! Monster Mats (high-quality, all-season floor mats) help protect your floors from dirt, snow, sand, mud, rain, and slush.2 Take them out, hose them off, and you’re ready for the next adventure.

Perfect for long road trips, the Universal Tablet Holder attaches to the front-seat headrest and securely holds a tablet or smartphone in place.3 Tap and swipe, pull up a movie, and instantly create a rear-seat entertainment center to occupy even the fussiest travelers. This is the year when “Are we there yet?” becomes “We’re there already?”

Easy to install, the Snakey Headrest Hanger attaches to front-seat headrests creating a set of hooks to help you keep your car organized. No more backpacks, clothes, or trash bags on the floor!

Emergencies don’t announce themselves. But you can help prepare yourself for a number of situations with the VW Roadside Assistance Kit. Complete with booster cables, tools, warning triangle, blanket, LED flashlight, poncho, work gloves, cable ties, bandages, and a whistle.

Tiny details can make a big difference in how you feel about your ride. Whether you prefer polished exhaust tips, brass valve stem caps, a sleek steel license plate frame, or a stylish door sill protector, you’re sure to find something to find the flair that sets your car apart from the crowd.
