2018 VW Beetle

Has there ever been a more iconic car than the VW Beetle? Designed by Ferdinand Porsche (yes, that Porsche) in 1938, the Beetle has been a mainstay in the Volkswagen line-up and is the longest running and most manufactured car of a single platform ever made.

The 2018 Beetle is quite different than the 1938 model. 18” alloy wheels, power sunroof, rear spoiler, and premium sound systems are just a few of the options that have come about over the 80-year history of the Beetle.

The basic exterior design has remained recognizable and consistent through the years, however, the fit, feel, and technology inside the car is vastly different. Creature comfort options include:
  • Apple Car Play and Android Auto for music streaming
  • Ambient LED lighting
  • Navigation, weather, sports, and information on a 7” touch screen
  • 400-watt Fender premium audio system
  • Push button start


The icon got a bump in speed for 2018 with a standard turbocharged 2.0-liter TSI engine and an available 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport mode for real driving fun. All that fun and 33 highway mpg.


“While the size of the Beetle has grown, and its technology and safety features are as modern as any other car, its essence remains.” This is what KBB.com says about the 2018 Beetle. With safety features like blind spot monitoring, intelligent crash response, high-strength steel safety cage, and automatic post collision braking system, it is no wonder this car retains a high safety rating.
Come visit Volkswagen of Olympia in the Olympia Auto Mall and experience what 80 years of German engineering can produce. Once behind the wheel, you will be able to feel it for yourself.

2018 Subaru Outback

With six models to choose from, the 2018 Subaru Outback offers up a wide variety of options, inside and out. The Outback is way more than a wagon that is an attractive alternative to larger SUVs.
It has more cargo space than some of it’s larger competitors, yet still achieves a 24-mpg overall rating and a smaller price tag. From the base model 2.5i to the very well-equipped 3.6R Touring, there is an Outback that can suit just about anyone’s driving and lifestyle requirements.
Some nice additions to the 2018 version are Apple Car Play and Android Auto, both designed to interface with your favorite music provider. This is standard on all models. The technology does not end there. The 8” touch screen controls navigation, audio functions, and your favorite apps. Most models feature a 12 speaker Harman Kardon premium sound system with 576 watts.

Standard Symmetrical All Wheel Drive

Designed for optimal balance and an even distribution of power for maximum traction, standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive makes for exceptional stability, impressive efficiency, and a quick response to driving conditions.

Durable SUBARU BOXER engines combine with a Lineartronic® CVT transmission to deliver up to a fuel-efficient 32 MPG highway.


Once inside the cabin, you can enjoy all the cool options Subaru has to offer, such as:
·         60/40 split folding rear seatback
·         Power rear gate with adjustable stopping points
·         10-way power seats with 2 position memory
·         Heated front seats
·         Heated mirrors


The Outback earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick Award with good performance in crash testing and a superior rated front crash prevention system. The optional EyeSight system includes forward collision warning, autonomous braking and throttle control, and lane-sway and the lane-departure warning and assist. Models equipped with EyeSight also get blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic warning, welcomed features that are now standard equipment on the Limited and Touring models.

2018 Mazda CX-5

Mazda has completely redesigned the CX-5 for 2018 for a more mature and capable compact SUV. Improved ride comfort, and interior quality combined with typical high craftsmanship from Mazda, make this a very attractive choice in an extremely competitive market.

2018 sees the CX-5s ride improved, making it more nimble, comfortable, and responsive. It now ranks among the top in its class in ride and comfort.

Powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed automatic transmission, the CX-5 has plenty of responsive power while maintaining a 24 MPG combined rating.

Interior & Safety

The re-design efforts have also improved the overall quietness inside the cabin, with thicker glass, better carpeting, and upgraded sealing efforts, all making this the quietest SUV in the non-luxury market. While inside the quiet cabin, you will enjoy plenty of cool features and technology. Navigation with an SD map card for easy updating capabilities, a premium sound system, and an intuitive 7” touch screen with voice commands is just a few of the amenities you will find. With soft cushions, supple leatherette, and grippy suede, the CX-5's front seats are comfortable and have an upscale presence. The seats are roomy with just enough lateral support to hold you in place. The driver’s seat on our Touring model has six-way power adjustability.

Safety features are what you would expect from Mazda. Collision warning, lane departure avoidance, blind spot warning, and rear traffic warning just to name a few.

Make the short trip to the Olympia Auto Mall and visit the knowledgeable staff at Lincoln & Mazda Of Olympia and let them show you all the changes Mazda has made to the MX-5 for 2018.
