PostHeaderIcon 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI 2.0 Autobahn Driven

For 45 years, the Volkswagen Golf has proudly carried the compact hatchback flag for Volkswagen. For 45 years, the Golf has established itself as one of the most popular models in its segment. And for 45 years, the Golf continues to be one of VW’s most popular models. Generations have passed and versions have come and gone; through it all, the Golf name has remained front and center in the conversation on the best hatchback models in the market. That reputation has extended to the Golf’s sporty alter-ego, the GTI.

It’s no secret that the Golf GTI has evolved into a separate model with a separate identity from its Golf brethren. Need proof of that? Look no further than the 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn, the range-topping version of the current GTI line that proudly carries the name of Germany’s famous thoroughfare. Does the 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn live up to the billing as one of the finest sporty compact hatchbacks in the market today? More importantly, does it live up to the billing of the Golf name from where it traces its roots and the Autobahn from which it was named after? We got our hands on a 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn seeking answers to these questions, and, for what it’s worth, our questions were answered emphatically.

PostHeaderIcon The Volkswagen ID.R Just Slaughtered the Nurburgring – Here’s How Fast

Do you hear it? It’s the Volkswagen PR machine stomping the ground and announcing far and wide that the halo car of the I.D. family has just annihilated the Nurburgring-Nordschleife circuit in Germany and, in the process, put a new benchmark lap time for EVs. The time? A 6:05.336 after many tryout laps and other tests that have commenced in April. Is it noteworthy? Most certainly. Is it as noteworthy as VW would want you to believe? Not really. Bear with me to see what I’m talking about.

Last year, Volkswagen sent shockwaves around the world when Frenchman Romain Dumas claimed victory and shattered the previous all-time record set by rally legend Sebastien Loeb in 2013 at the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb. Already an overall winner of the Le Mans 24 Hours race and a three-time winner of the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, Dumas pulled the feat aboard Volkswagen’s cutting-edge I.D.-R, a purpose-built prototype made for the Race to the Clouds. He followed that up by raising the bar on Lord March’s driveway and setting a new EV record during the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Since late last year, we’ve heard that the German giant is after the record and it all came down now. The NIO EP9’s reign is no more.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen Received 10,000 Orders for the 2020 Volkswagen ID.3 Within the First 24 Hours of Pre-Ordering

Volkswagen reported that, within the first 24 hours after opening registrations, the ID.3 hatchback collected 10,000 pre-booking across Europe. The massive number of users overloaded VW’s system, which caused interruptions and delays to customers trying to pay the $1,122 deposit due for the registration.

With a 205-mile range, the base model ID.3 starts from “under €30,000”. Starting from “less than €40,000” the ID.3 limited edition “1st” includes a 261-mile battery. Two trims of that model are available: “1st Plus” and “1st Max”.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen ID Roomzz Concept

It’s not the lineup we can expect, but Volkswagen’s growing family of I.D. concepts welcomed its newest member to the fold at Auto Shanghai 2019. The new model, called the I.D. Roomzz Concept, is yet another concept crossover that previews a production model that’s scheduled to hit the Chinese market sometime in 2020. If VW’s grand EV plans come to fruition — the German automaker is putting up almost $35 billion in investments to its EV cause — the production version of the I.D. Rooms Concept would follow the all-electric hatchback and all-electric crossover that Volkswagen already has in the pipeline. Testing of the hatchback model, called the ID.3, is now in full swing after a series of videos previewing the model’s Launch Edition leaked online. The budding excitement surrounding the ID.3’s coming launch shouldn’t take away from the potential of the I.D. Roomzz Concept, especially with what this concept brings to the table.

PostHeaderIcon Should Volkswagen Fight BMW with a Production Version of the 2019 SUV Coupe Concept?

.split768449

Volkswagen just showed off the SUV Coupe Concept at the 2019 Shanghai auto show, a coupe-like version of the China-only Tayron SUV. The automaker calls it a concept, but we already know it will go into production by the end of the year, so it’s more of a pre-production prototype, really.

PostHeaderIcon If Volkswagen Brings the Tarok to The United States, It’ll Carry a Price Tag in the Mid-$20,000 Range

.split728095

Volkswagen brought the Tarok pickup truck concept to the 2019 New York Auto Show before its production debut in South America saying that it has no plans to sell it in the U.S. However, Volkswagen of America CEO Scott Keogh says that the Tarok would make sense in North America with “an extremely smart price point.”

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen Teramont X is The World’s Version of Our Atlas Five-Seater

Volkswagen has made the trip to China, and it brought with it five SUVs that are on display at Auto Shanghai 2019. One of those SUVs is called the Teramont X, and if you recognize it, then you’re not alone. The new five-seater goes by a different name, but we in the U.S. know it as the five-seater version of the Atlas SUV. It’ll go by the Teramont X name in China, though, just as it will in other markets like Mexico, Russia, and the Middle East. Regardless of its name, the SUV’s arrival in the Chinese market is another clear indication of Volkswagen’s goal to flood the global car market with as many crossovers and SUVs as it can. The strategy has proven to be successful, so why fix something that isn’t broken, right?

PostHeaderIcon The 2019 Volkswagen Tarok Pickup Concept is Yet Another Teaser of Something We Can’t Have

.split728095

Still upset that Volkswagen won’t sell the Amarok truck in the United States? Well, get ready to see yet another VW truck that you won’t be able to buy in the U.S. The Germans are bringing the Tarok to the New York Auto Show only to show you what the South American market will get soon. Just a concept for now, the Tarok will become a production model in 2020.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen Atlas Basecamp Concept

.split834855

As a relative newcomer to the mid-size, seven-seater SUV fold, the Volkswagen Atlas is still getting its feet wet in the segment. Soon enough, though, the Atlas could become more than just a run-to-the-grocery hauler as Volkswagen is set to unveil the Atlas Basecamp Concept at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. The Atlas Basecamp is a trail-ready concept that’s kitted with all sorts of accessories to showcase its understated versatility. The standard Atlas has the makings of a popular SUV, but it’s not as equipped for the outdoors as most people would like it to be. The Atlas Basecamp is an answer to that. It’s unlikely to hit dealerships soon, but its presence in New York next week is a step in the right direction for the SUV’s evolving identity.

PostHeaderIcon The Volkswagen I.D. Roomzz Concept Debuts with a Sleek Interior, Lots of Range

Volkswagen launched yet another I.D. series model at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show. Called the I.D. Roomzz, it joins six other I.D. show cars that Volkswagen introduced over the past three years. A crossover by design, I.D. Roomzz previews a production model that will be introduced in China in 2021.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2018 Volkswagen Amarok

When 2018 rolled in, it was pretty clear that Volkswagen’s truck, the Amarok, was in dire need of an update. Volkswagen was happy to finally oblige, and that’s what we’re looking at here – the updated, 2018 Volkswagen Amarok. As a Volkswagen truck, the Amarok doesn’t get a lot of love here in the states thanks to models like the Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra, Ford F-150, Chevy Colorado, and – soon – the new Ford Ranger. As such, we thought we’d display the Volkswagen Amarok as our wallpaper of the day here in our office. Even better, we thought we’d share our entire gallery of Amarok wallpapers with you. Check out our favorite below, then run your fingers through the gallery at the bottom of the page for other great wallpaper choices.

PostHeaderIcon Moving towards electric cars, Volkswagen plans a 6% cut of his workforces by 2023 and 2,000 new software jobs positions.

At Volkswagen’s annual media conference in Wolfsburg, VW commented on its new strategy to cut from 5,000 up to 7,000 jobs by 2023. Through reducing such operating costs, VW aims to save 5.9 billion Euro
($6.7B). The German automaker will invest the savings in its top-selling division – which generates more than a third of the company’s total sales – in an attempt to raise the operating margin to 6%. Last year, the brand’s operating margin fell to 3.8% where Peugeot read a margin of 8.4%.

PostHeaderIcon Teaser: Volkswagen Will Showcase the ID Roomzz Full-Size Electric SUV at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show

After having a bit of a laugh by unveiling the I.D. Buggy Concept at the 2019 Geneva Auto Show, Volkswagen is back with a more serious discourse as it announces a new concept that will be unveiled at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show. The German automaker is talking about the I.D. Roomzz, a crossover SUV with an innovative cabin layout that will arrive on the Chinese market by 2021.

When Volkswagen first announced that it will quite literally bombard the EV segment with a cacophony of models of all shapes and sizes in the next decade, I genuinely thought the German giant was a bit over ambitious in the wake of the still-relevant Dieselgate scandal. The company based in Wolfsburg claimed that 70 models are in the pipeline and, in the past couple of years, we’ve been periodically greeted by new concepts that preview production models from the I.D. family. Now, as we’re edging closer to the launch of the first production-ready I.D. model, the I.D. Hatch, Volkswagen is preparing another concept for the upcoming Shanghai Auto Show, one that’s become impossible to ignore by the big players in the car-building world.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen To Tackle Tianmen Shan Big Gate Road with I.D. R

Volkswagen’s bespoke electric prototype racer that was the fastest at last year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb event will most likely add another record to its cabinet. Romain Dumas will pilot it in September on the so-called “Road to Heaven” that features 99 bends along 6.83 miles of road, longer than the original Spa-Francorchamps road course.

This year, Volkswagen will finally introduce the first model from its much-advertised I.D. family of electric models that are supposed to make us all rethink our lives, ponder on existence as a whole and so on and so forth. To keep the ball rolling and the buzz going, Volkswagen is yet to park the glorious LMP-like I.D. R in a museum and, instead, it will take the 670 horsepower beast all the way to China to compete on a strip of road that’s not opened to the public.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen I.D. BUGGY Concept

split800090

The Volkswagen I.D. Buggy is a concept car that draws inspiration from the iconic dune buggies of the 1960s. A fully electric vehicle built on Volkswagen’s new MEB modular platform, the I.D. Buggy is part of the company’s I.D. series of vehicles that includes six concept cars as of 2019. Unlike some of its siblings though, the I.D. Buggy won’t make it into production.

Having used the I.D. series to develop a modern successor to the iconic VW Bus, the German firm also created a modern interpretation of the classic dune buggy. The latter became known in the 1960s, when some privateers from California, most notably Bruce Meyers, converted rear-engined Volkswagen Beetles into roofless and doorless recreational vehicles for use on sand dunes and beaches. The I.D. Buggy pays tribute to its spiritual predecessor in both design and functionality, but it adds an electric drivetrain into the mix.

PostHeaderIcon Instagram Girl of the Week: Christin_XS

Instagram model Christin Franke (@christin_xs) has a fetching Instagram account. She’s our featured car girl of the week, and if you check out her Instagram page, you’ll see why. The brunette stunner not only looks good in front of a camera, but she also happens to own one of the finest hot hatches of all time: the Mk 5 Volkswagen Golf. There’s no more lethal combination than a beautiful young woman and a hot hatch that screams “driving pleasure!”
Christian Franke stands out her own. Put her in a Volkswagen Golf Mk5, and she turns into someone deserving of our car girl of the week title.

PostHeaderIcon The Volkswagen I.D. EV Will Launch This Year as the Next-Gen Golf Gets Shelved Until 2020

The Volkswagen Golf is a true automotive phenomenon so when there’s a new one on the way; you can bet everyone is eagerly waiting for it. We’ve already seen mules out on the open road, but the now-2021 Volkswagen Golf 8 won’t be here until next year as Volkswagen prepares to unveil the first model from itsI.D. family of EVs that is slated to become a hit.

The German giant from Wolfsburg has been dropping hints on the 2021 Golf for a while now, but we’ll have to wait a little bit longer to see the refreshed version of the best-selling car in Europe. Why? Well, Volkswagen needs extra time to fix some last-minute things on the Golf, and this would push the release date well past what was originally planned, namely to have the car at the Frankfurt Auto Show. A launch event on the eve of the holiday season isn’t what Volkswagen wants for the Golf, apparently.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen Set To Go All Guns Blazing With 70 Electric Models By 2030

Volkswagen Group is on a roll right now – almost so well that we’ve nearly forgotten about the Dieselgate emissions scandal. Volkswagen has said that it will be increasing its current target of 50 electric models across its brands to 70 models by the end of 2030. With this expansion, Volkswagen electric cars are expected to comprise around 40-percent of total vehicle sales. Sounds insane, right? Well, you can probably expect Volkswagen to achieve it soon if things keep going so well with the brand’s EV push.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen Isn’t Shying Away from the U.S. Truck Market One Bit

Despite being the world’s largest automobile manufacturing company, Volkswagen has left the truck segment untapped. Although the European markets will benefit from the Volkswagen-Ford alliance and receive Ranger-based Amarok pickup trucks, the same has not been announced for the U.S. markets. However, we have learned that Volkswagen is keen on entering one of the hottest growing segments in the U.S. So, will the company go solo here, or will it choose to ally with Ford and base its trucks on the Blue Oval’s offerings?

PostHeaderIcon The New Volkswagen T-Roc R Is More Than Just a Sporty Variant Of The T-Roc

Gone are the days when performance cars used to be a different segment altogether. Even hatches and pseudo-SUVs these days offer enough horses to stop you dead in your tracks. The latest addition to the list is Volkswagen’s baby SUV. The German automaker has injected the T-Roc with steroids and named it T-Roc R. The T-Roc R was launched at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, and it comes riding on 296 horses!
