, Senior Pricing Analyst - October 4, 2018

If you're looking for a hidden deal, VW is offering unadvertised dealer cash incentives worth up to $4,000 on all-wheel drive versions of the versatile Golf SportWagen. Alternatively, the spacious Atlas 2.0T qualifies for a $1,500 dealer cash incentive plus a $1,000 bonus.

Looking for a family-friendly car with deep discounts? Most Passats are eligible for a $4,000 dealer cash incentive. As a result, expect to see extremely low prices at dealers, in some cases rivaling those of smaller and less-equipped cars.

Most of the offers listed here are available nationally through October 31, 2018. However, featured leases on vehicles like the Jetta, Passat and Atlas are regional specials in Western states like California, Oregon and Utah.

Insider Tips for VW Shoppers

Unlike its competitors, VW almost never offers cashback incentives. That doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get a great deal, however. The automaker’s preferred weapon of choice is unadvertised money given to dealers that allows them to provide large discounts. For best results, be sure to shop multiple dealers.

If you're a recent grad, be sure to ask about the VW College Graduate Program. It features a $500 bonus that can be combined with most other incentives. Just be aware that you'll have to finance through VW Credit in order to get it.

Sadly, a major emissions scandal has prohibited the sale of the automaker's TDI diesel models since 2015. At this point, there is still no guarantee that the models will return. VW has already signaled its intention to transition toward plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles in the years ahead.
