Volkswagen Debuts Five 2017 Concepts in Savannah

Volkswagen unveiled its enthusiast show fleet for 2017 at Southern Worthersee (SoWo): The European Experience on Hutchinson Island, Savannah, Georgia this weekend.

The car enthusiast event is open to all European makes and models. In the past it was held in Helen, Georgia and is inspired by the famous car meeting in Reifnitz, Austria next to Lake Worthersee.

There are hundreds of cars to check out at both shows, but here are five new models from VW that are worth a look. If you miss them at SoWo, they will be traveling around the country at other car shows this summer.

Golf Alltrack Country Concept

The Golf Alltrack Country concept has all-wheel drive, a 2-inch suspension lift, and rolls on 15-inch wheels with BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires. VW says additional fog lights are integrated into the lower bumper and a hitch-mounted Thule T2 Pro XT bike rack carries two Trek Stache 9.6 mountain bikes.

The crunchy concept comes with a roof-mounted tent system, topped with a flexible solar panel, curved LED light bar, and a solar-heated shower. Inside the trunk, there's an integrated entertainment system, custom LED light bar, and three batteries that are charged via the solar panel. Nice.
