Volkswagen really needs to decide what it wants to be when it grows up. Or gets out of a financial and regulatory prison sentence, I guess. And the new 2018 Volkswagen Arteon sedan has somehow emerged as the poster boy for this problem.
Volkswagen spent 2017 rolling out concepts for its new I.D. lineup, including a new Microbus, finally, and now it’s introducing one more called the Vizzion—a fully-autonomous, all-electric sleek sedan with no steering wheel or pedals.
Recently I put together an article about the VW W8 Passat, a car so needlessly complicated and expensive to operate I was sure it was the most infamously unreliable Volkswagen in modern history. Then the V10 Touareg showed up and blew my mentions into smithereens.
Hey there, hope your day’s going alright. I have a quick question for you: are you gonna buy a 2019 Volkswagen Arteon? I don’t mean to pry or anything, I’m just curious.
My 1974 Volkswagen Beetle is, by modern standards, a complete pile of garbage. But every time I get into a car that is up to par for a new vehicle, it feels like trash, and I think my VW is to blame.
The VW Up(!) is Volkswagen’s adorable little compact car that we don’t get in the United States because life is unfair and cruel. VW decided to spice up the Up a bit by adding a GTI trim. Just look at it. It’s like a tiny Golf GTI.
I tend to like German cars. The Volkswagen Golf is good. An E30 BMW 3 Series is also good. Throwing the rear subframe of an E30 under a forest green Golf and then destroying some tires is just something else.

Sedans and small cars are in a bad way right now as buyers flock to crossovers and SUVs, but they still matter at Volkswagen. In particular, the Jetta matters, as this Golf-with-a-trunk remains the brand’s best-selling vehicle. As VW seeks to recover from the diesel cheating mess, here’s the bigger, hopefully better…
Despite being the more exciting cars to read about and drive, sports cars and supercars usually aren’t on an automaker’s top moneymaker list. Which is why the first wave of electric offerings will be cars that appeal to the mass market. After that is when the fun stuff starts coming out, if this chatter about Porsche…
Are you prepared for the arctic apocalypse? This guy in a Japan-spec MK1 Volkswagen Golf sure is. Be like him.
Believe it or not, in the United States, Volkswagen’s best-selling model is still the Jetta. Yes, even as sedan sales implode, and even with the Golf being as good as it is, and even with two new SUVs newly embiggened and competitively priced for the American market, and even though the compact sedan itself is quite…
More than two years after Volkswagen came clean on how it managed to skirt diesel emissions tests, we’re still learning about new ways it used so-called defeat devices. Like on Tuesday, when Germany’s automotive watchdog announced a recall of VW Touaregs that were apparently equipped with defeat devices.
