Volkswagen Model

At Timmons Volkswagen, we’ve got a wide inventory of vehicles with distinct names in our Huntington Beach showroom, but what do they mean? Volkswagen, itself, means “the people’s car” in German, and speaks to the popularity of this brand. Many of the current model names also have interesting, unique meanings:

  • Beetle: Originally dubbed the Volkswagen Type 1, this iconic car received its current name from its unique shape resembling the bug.
  • CC: This acronym stands for “Comfort Coupe”.
  • Eos: The Greek goddess for dawn is the namesake for this convertible that offers unbeatable views of the sky.
  • Golf: Many VW names come from natural occurrences, and the Golf is named for the Gulf Stream.
  • Jetta: Hinting at its sporty performance, this name translates to “jet stream”.
  • Tiguan: The family-friendly SUV takes its name from a combination of the words “tiger” and “leguan”, which means “iguana” in German.
  • Touareg: Encouraging new destinations, this SUV was named after the nomadic Tuareg people of the Saharan desert, who were a tribe of nomads.
