The 2019 Mazda Miata takes an already-great, sharply styled tiny convertible and adds even more power. It’s a great buy. But the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI sports an updated look, has even more power and is probably the best-driving hatchback on the road without even trying too hard—but it’s not a true sports car. So if…
I was walking to work the other day, as the cold sunshine cast shadows from the scaffolding above 16th street. Wait, I realized. What is going to happen first: The base VW Golf will only be available as an electric car, or the base GTI will have 300 horsepower?
What we need in this world is more weirdness, and Volkswagen is bringing a bit of that to Brazil. At the São Paulo International Motor Show, the company showed off a nearly production-ready concept truck called the Tarok, which features a variable length bed. Fun!
Over the past week I had been thinking about selling my sweet little old Volkswagen. It had a few things wrong with it, and was something I had to deal with more than something I felt was indispensable. So to fix it, I drove it.
The world is going ape-shit over crossovers, and Volkswagen wants in on the fun. So behold the 2019 VW T-Cross, an SUV that’s even compact-er than the compact Tiguan and the subcompact T-Roc. And while it may look cute in the picture above, I say: Don’t be lured in by its adorable dimensions, for it is likely to be…
If you are a fan of wagons, your choices are slim in America. If you want a wagon with 3 pedals, you basically have one option in the way of the Sportwagen/Alltrack from VW. But for 2019 VW will allow you to get a fully loaded Alltrack SEL with manual goodness if you desire.
A new study implying that legalizing marijuana could cause more car crashes, more news on Hyundai and Kia fire reports, VW’s boss says the future of Germany’s auto industry could be bleak, and much more. This is The Morning Shift for October 18, 2018.
To prepare for Hurricane Florence, one North Carolina family decided to try to drive their Volkswagen Jetta up two supremely sketchy makeshift ramps, and onto the front porch. It’s not to save the car from the storm like we saw with last year’s hurricanes, either—it’s for a very different reason.
One of the biggest players in the automotive world, Volkswagen, recently warned that the cost of developing and selling electric cars “will be higher than expected.” Hm! If electric cars are so expensive why do people build them in their garages with old batteries? Seems like a hole in their logic!
Nobody quite wants to commit in the world of EVs, car sales are going loopy, and there’s a giant recall going on at Toyota right now. All this and more in The Morning Shift.
My knuckles are cut up. My back is sore. My fingernails are scrubbed. It’s been a while since I’ve wrenched on my car, and now I don’t want to stop.
As we wave goodbye to the second generation of the “new” Volkswagen Beetle, a car that never quite reached the astronomical sales of the original car, we’re already getting indications that VW may be planning a revolutionary new electrified model that would return to its rear-wheel drive roots.
Robert has a 14-year-old Volkswagen Passat with a lot of miles and not a lot of life left in it. His family refuses to ride in his car that probably should have been sent to the junkyard years ago, so it’s time for a replacement that’s safe but not lame. What car should he buy?
We’re living in dark times, my friends, dark times. What do I turn to to make things a little more bearable? Gin, for one. And a giant punch bowl of spaghetti. And maybe 400 horsepower in the form of the 2020 Volkswagen Golf R, if this rumor is true.
Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe candidate is a Volkswagen I’ll bet you forgot ever even existed, even though it’s only been out of production a couple of years. Let’s see if this Eos has a price that’s worth remembering.
Rust sometimes makes a car look just a tad better. It gives the car a bit of personality and this 1968 VW Type 2 pickup on Craigslist is no exception. I think it’d actually look a little more mundane if all the paint was in order.
