2018 VW Touareg plug-in hybrid powertrain and features

Will the next Touareg feature a plug-in hybrid model?

2018 VW Touareg plug-in hybrid powertrain and features

Update: T-Prime concept shown in Beijing

Maybe it’s too early to speculate on the latest Volkswagen offering, what with the Beijing Auto Show a full week away, but VW has offered us just enough to get our imaginations going. In just 10 bullet points, we learned of an SUV that promises to be the most advanced yet for the luxury segment, and puts a clear emphasis on digital functionality. Naturally, we’re guessing this model is going to be a 2018 VW Touareg plug-in hybrid, with the powertrain and features pointing toward a new generation for the model. Read the rest of this entry >>

UPDATE: Volkswagen will show T-Cross Breeze at 2016 Geneva International Motor Show

2016 Geneva International Motor Show VW T-Cross Breeze

Could it be the year of the Volkswagen? For those who think VW hasn’t been taking enough risk in recent years, this is all about to change. Just in time for the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show, the VW T-Cross Breeze concept has been confirmed as one of the models the German-automaker will be displaying. We already guessed this was what would happen based on a whole lot of rumors, and now Volkswagen has announced it. So far there’s a whole lot going on with this model, but no strict information regarding potential production or release. Read the rest of this entry >>

Will Volkswagen be unveiling the T-Cross at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show?

VW SUV T-Cross and T-Roc concepts at Geneva Motor Show

It seems that 2016 is the year when Volkswagen is going to be revealing the most changes and innovations we’ve seen in a while. So far the BUDD-e has already been unveiled as a concept that flaunts the potential for improved electric vehicle options, while the e-Golf Touch adds on practical gesture control that we expect to see available in upcoming production models. Now we’re hearing rumors of a new subcompact SUV from Volkswagen, and rumor has it the VW T-Cross and T-Roc concepts will both be at the Geneva Motor Show. Read the rest of this entry >>

VW reveals its e-Golf Touch with production-ready features

VW e-Golf Touch Concept Infotainment Technology

When it comes to technology and concepts, we’re like most people in that we’re always looking ahead to what’s coming next and how it can make our lives easier and our time behind the wheel safer. Automotive shows provide some of the most exciting news next to new model releases because we get a hint of what could be, even if it’s not quite here yet. THE VW BUDD-e may have been a show stopper at CES 2016, but it’s the VW e-Golf Touch Concept infotainment technology that you’re most likely to see come to dealerships near you.

Technology is constantly changing, which is why every book ever written about the future includes some crazy technology that doesn’t seem realistic to our modern eyes. We suppose in some ways Volkswagen has offered up the same thing at CES 2016 with the Volkswagen BUDD-e electric concept. Some of the concept model’s technology will almost certainly make it to production models in the near future, while other aspects of what we’re seeing may never make it past automotive shows.

Volkswagen to launch budget cars in China by 2018

Will VW be lowering the cost of future vehicles?

Volkswagen to launch budget cars in China by 2018

It seems Volkswagen may finally be seeing one major gap in its current lineup, at least in China. While we naturally think Volkswagen has some excellent models to offer to new-car shoppers, premium materials don’t necessarily translate as “budget-friendly.” Now we hears new of Volkswagen to launch budget cars in China by 2018, which seems a clear sign the automaker now remembers its roots as the people’s car.

2016 Volkswagen Jetta GLI New Jersey arrival date and price

2016 Jetta GLI to be released with a new look

2016 Volkswagen Jetta GLI New Jersey arrival date and price

Don’t get us wrong, we like the look of the 2015 VW Jetta GLS, but it’s not exactly to the Jetta what the GTI is to the Golf. True, it’s sporting the same 210 horsepower, 2.0L engine which can be found in the GTI, and it certainly is fully-loaded with features compared to the base model Jetta, but it’s lacking that something special when it comes to the looks department, and Volkswagen has recognized this. The company has just revealed images of the next model year, so there isn’t much information regarding the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta GLI New Jersey arrival date and price, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth speculating over.

VW Golf Sportwagen Alltrack is coming to America

Family-friendly Volkswagen Alltrack takes safety seriously

VW Golf Sportwagen Alltrack is coming to America

Volkswagen already has one wagon-style vehicle on the market with their 2015 VW Golf SportWagen taking up where the Jetta SportWagen left off, so why do we need another version on the market? It would seem these practical vehicles put too much emphasis on a spacious interior in a fuel-efficient design, rather than a sporty look that turns heads. More likely, we Americans just can’t get past the old days of wood-paneling announcing to the world that we’ve got a baby on board. Either way, wagons aren’t what they used to be and we feel they make an excellent alternative to using a bulky minivan to tote the kids off to soccer practice. That’s why we’re so thrilled to hear the VW Golf Sportwagen Alltrack is coming to America. Read the rest of this entry >>
