PostHeaderIcon 2019 Volkswagen Jetta Previewed in Official Renderings

Well, you don’t need to strain your mind anymore trying to envision what the new 2019 Volkswagen Jetta will look like. VW has dropped the official renderings of the new mid-size sedan ahead of its NAIAS debut, and they leave nothing to the imagination. Here’s thew new Jetta, and isn’t it just… ordinary?

Not that we were expecting some revolutionary new design or some extraordinary feature. But the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta does not appear to different enough from the existing model to justify the title of ‘new’. In fairness though, they seem to have tried to include some of the design cues from the sexy Arteon into the Jetta, especially around the front and rear fascia. That means even though the standard model may not be very exciting, there is hope still for the R-version and other possible high performance variants to address the issue with sportier cues and more aggressive features.

At any rate, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta is a quality product mechanically and structurally, being based on the manufacturer’s renowned MQB platform which underpins some seriously good cars. Engine-wise, the upgrades will be in the same vein as the styling, meaning you get an improved version of the existing lineup, namely the 1.4 liter turbo engine. A hybrid or plug-in variant is not out of the question either, but they will be far off in the future, possibly after we got the R-Line and GLI variants.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 VW Polo GTI R5 Revealed, Looks Awesome

Following a very intriguing preview, today Volkswagen revealed the 2018 VW Polo GTI R5 rally car in the flesh. As with the rest of the new generation of street model-based rally cars, the R5 Polo is a superb looking creature. The new WRC season is going to be a delight to watch just because of the cars. 

In fact we probably would not care about the competition itself! But in any case, 2018 VW Polo GTI R5 is locked and loaded to win races, what with sophisticated chassis, suspension and aerodynamics, a 272 hp turbo engine, four-wheel drive and new safety package. The engine is, of course, is the same basic motor used in the road-going Polo GTI according to the new rules, and it has a capacity of 1.6 liters. TheR5 is a totally different beast though, weighing 1,320 kg and boasting close-stepped, sequential, five-speed racing gearbox and permanent four-wheel drive. The little racer rockets from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds.



“The Polo GTI R5 came through the initial tests without any problems. The feedback from the test drivers was very positive,” says Technical Director François-Xavier “FX” Demaison. “It is obviously beneficial to be able to call upon an experienced team of engineers and mechanics, who helped to develop the Polo that won the world championship. And it goes without saying that, as we have in the past, we are also taking advantage of the close and excellent cooperation with the colleagues in the technical development department in Wolfsburg, as well as our Škoda colleagues, who have been offering their customers an R5 car since 2015.”

PostHeaderIcon 2018 VW Golf GTI TCR Gets a Facelift

Well, even in the world of racing looking matters these days, which is why Volkswagen have given their Golf GTI TCR race car a facelift for the 2018 season. There is more to this facelift, mind you, than just fashion and beauty. And no, it has nothing with aerodynamics and all that.

TCR race cars, you see, are based on the production models one can buy in the showroom. So they look fairly similar to the road-going version, and the closer they look to the production car, the better. That is the reason behind 2018 Golf GTI TCR facelift. The 350 horsepower racer gets a new face that is unmistakably GTI. The car maker hopes that the success of this car on the race track would lend this highly recognizable face a certain prestige, which in turn would translates into more sales for the production model. Other road car-related features include GTI-specific features like the typical red stripe in the radiator grille and the legendary ‘Clark’ plaid seat covers. The TCR Golf will be ready for delivery from January onwards.

“The new look for the Golf GTI TCR resulted from close cooperation with Volkswagen Design. This helps us to underline just what a close relationship exists between the production model and the racing version,” explains Volkswagen Motorsport Director Sven Smeets. “For example, the engine comes directly from series production and only requires minimal adjustment for competitive racing. This is proof that the Golf GTI provides the perfect foundation for our customer racing cars.”

They just announced the 2018 VW Polo R5 GTI with which they will return to rallying next year. The handsome rally car will be available to professional teams and aspiring drivers wishing to compete in WRC (World Rally Championship).

The new Polo GTI road car became an instant sensation when it was unveiled thanks to is superb blend of style and performance.

The VW Polo R5 GTI is closely related to that road car and gets the same four-cylinder turbo engine, only here it’s boosted to 270 horsepower. The R5 also benefits from four-wheel drive, a sequential five-speed racing transmission and a comprehensive safety package.

PostHeaderIcon New Volkswagen T-Roc Priced from £20,425 in the UK

The crossover, or compact SUV, segment is full of cars that look pretty much the same, and none of them truly exciting. That is why we reckon the new 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc is going to become an instant hit when it’s unleashed unto this market. This one’s so distinguished and looks so refreshingly unusual that they don’t even have to convince you how good it is at being a crossover. 

And for the record, it really is. Volkswagen T-Roc offers plenty of space inside in spite of its conveniently compact exterior, as evidenced by its 445 litre cargo space. The car is designed to be an urban monkey, but thanks to high ground clearance and some decent hardware underneath you could also do some light off-roading in it. The all-wheel-drive versions come with 4MOTION Active Control with driving profile selection as standard. Tech features are also satisfactory with the availability of automatic air conditioning; electromechanical power steering; Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

Among the main highlights of the T-Roc equipment-wise, depending on the trims and options, we have the Active Info Display (10.3-inch), Volkswagen Car-Net, 8.0 inch infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a host of connectivity services. electrically operated tailgate, electrically operated sliding/tilting panoramic sunroof, ‘Vienna’ leather upholstery, wireless smartphone charging, and a 400-watt, six-speaker, audio system by BeatsAudio.

As for the engines, 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc can be ordered in the following combinations:

Petrol engines:
1.0 TSI, 115 PS, 200 Nm, 6-speed manual, front-wheel drive
1.5 TSI, 150 PS, 250 Nm, 6-speed manual, front-wheel drive
1.5 TSI, 150 PS, 250 Nm, 7-speed DSG, front-wheel drive
1.5 TSI, 150 PS, 250 Nm, 7-speed DSG, 4MOTION
2.0 TSI, 190 PS, 320 Nm, 7-speed DSG, 4MOTION

Diesel engines:

2.0 TDI, 150 PS, 340 Nm, 6-speed manual, front-wheel drive
2.0 TDI, 150 PS, 340 Nm, 6-speed manual, 4MOTION
2.0 TDI, 150 PS, 340 Nm, 7-speed DSG, front-wheel drive










Director of Volkswagen UK, Alison Jones, said: “The arrival of T-Roc, and the launch of this early wave of 1,000 cars for the keenest buyers, marks a major step in our brand’s ongoing SUV offensive. It is stunning to look at, and contains all the tech you would expect in a car today. The level of interest we have seen in this exciting new car, even before its physical arrival at the end of the year, has been unprecedented. I’m sure it will mark a significant step in Volkswagen’s ongoing expansion and growth in the UK, and I’m very much looking forward to seeing the first cars on the road here before Christmas.”

PostHeaderIcon 2018 VW T-Roc Crossover – Price and Specs

Volkswagen announced today the base price and specs of the new 2018 VW T-Roc as the car gears up for market launch. The already popular crossover starts from €20,390 for the base model with a 1.0 liter TSI engine. That means a decently-equipped version with a big-ish engine is going to be quite pricey. But that probably won’t change how people feel about this cute little thing. 

2018 VW T-Roc has that puppy dog quality to it that European customers seem to love very much. It is compact and smart looking, and yet it offers enough space and practicality to satisfy  the needs of most EU families. Mind you, these are usually not big families. Customers in America may have an altogether different reaction to this recipe.

In any case, the new crossover seems spot on perfect for its intended market. The T-Roc is the first Volkswagen SUV that will be available to order in two-tone paintwork with visually contrasting roof section (including the A-pillars and exterior mirror housings). But visual appeal is only part of what makes this package enticing. You also get innovative digital features (such as the latest generation Active Info Display) as well as flawless connectivity via Volkswagen Car-Net. Available tech features include Front Assist and Lane Assist and Traffic Jam Assist.

2018 VW T-Roc is also technically brilliant, offering a choice of two or four-wheel-drive, a choice of three responsive yet efficient engine options at launch. The base model, as mentioned, gets a 1.0 liter TSI with 115 PS and FWD. You can also go for a 2.0 TSI with 190 PS with 7-speed DSG and 4MOTION all-wheel drive or a 2.0 TDI with 150 PS with 7-speed DSG and 4MOTION all-wheel drive.

PostHeaderIcon Golf GTE Becomes 150 Millionth VW Produced at Wolfsburg Plant

Volkswagen achieved a significant milestone yesterday as the 150 Millionth production vehicle rolled off the assembly line at their Wolfsburg plant. The milestone car was a blue Golf GTE, symbolizing the future of mobility at Volkswagen as they celebrate the past. The Golf is only one of over 60 models Volkswagen produces worldwide. 

The production of the 150th million vehicle does not mean in any way that VW is slowing down. In fact, they are in expansion mode, planning to launch over 10 new models worldwide in 2017 alone. There will also be 19 new SUVs in total by 2020. Then we have the new electric models and the company’s ambition to sell one million electric vehicles by 2025. The world economy is doing well and the market desires more variety. So unless something unexpected happens, this is going to be the routine for the next decade or so.

Dr. Herbert Diess, CEO of the Volkswagen brand, addressed the team in Assembly Hall 12: “150 million vehicles – that means we have made the dream of owning a car come true 150 million times for customers all over the world. You and your day-to-day work are the basis for this success. My colleagues on the Board of Management join me in thanking all Volkswagen employees – at all our sites. This anniversary would not have been possible without your commitment.”

PostHeaderIcon 2018 VW California XXL Details and Specs

The name California is a well-known one among van enthusiasts and camping aficionado. But they will forget all they know about these things once they learn about this new VW California XXL. This is the ultimate camping machine with features you didn’t even know you wanted. 

Set for official debut at the Caravan Salon Düsseldorf in the coming week, the 2018 VW California XXL is based on the Crafter and has a very manageable size. Its main highlights include a panoramic roof, an extended rear section with an enormous bed, an alcove for the children, all-wheel drive, pneumatic suspension. But it’s the details that are properly amazing about this camping machine, and how well each one is designed and built.

So with a fully loaded VW California XXL you get pull-out wet room with shower and WC, a kitchen with two fridges and a retractable gas hobs, full ambient lighting, a total of nine 220 V sockets and six USB charging ports, a projector, comfortable beds that are heated and cooled and allow you and your partner to fall asleep gazing at the stars, living area with a big table, four seats and an espresso machine, and… You can control the vehicle’s functions with a handy tablet that features a California XXL app.



As for the power and drive and all that, the new XXL comes with a Euro 6 turbo diesel with 177 PS and 410 Nm of torque, hooked up to 4MOTION all-wheel-drive.

PostHeaderIcon Official: 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc

The wait is over and the Volkswagen T-Roc is finally revealed in production trim. The new compact crossover sits below the Tiguan in the range and competes in the €20,000 crossover segment. It counts on its blend of practicality, features and style to win customers over. 

The design of the 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc is aggressive without being too in-your-face. Some might even call it conservative. It is roomy, though. If all five seats are occupied, luggage space when loaded up to the top edge of the rear seat backrests totals 445 litres. Features and equipment are among the other strong points. The T-Roc comes with high-tech systems such as Front Assist area monitoring with City Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Monitoring, the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System and the lane keeping system Lane Assist in all models.

Available with a choice of two- or four-wheel-drive, 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc can be had at launch with three petrol engines (TSI) and three diesels (TDI). The car also benefits from adaptive chassis control DCC and progressive steering, so it should also be pretty nice to drive. The long list of features, depending on the model, include items such as adaptive cruise control (ACC), Rear View reversing camera, the lane change system including Rear Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Monitor, lane keeping system Lane Assist, Park Assist including manoeuvring brake function, Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist.

PostHeaderIcon 2022 VW ID Buzz Confirmed for Production

In an unprecedented move that is guaranteed to make some fans very happy and some other extremely angry,  Volkswagen announced they are going to revive the old Microbus in 2022. The new model will be based on the VW ID Buzz concept. So an icon is being resurrected, and the way these things usually go, there is no way it’s going to be as good as the original. 

But it could in some ways be better. VW ID Buzz is an electric van in concept form and it will remain so in the transition to a production model. While the specs of the powertrain remain unknown for the time being, the batteries and stuff are said to stowed away under the floor so you get a ton of space inside, and since there is ample space for battery packs, theoretically, decent driving range as well. That is just as well, because a VW Bus van that can’t go long distances while carrying large number of people and their luggage would be utterly pointless.

But while technically the 2022 VW ID Buzz is superior to the original bus, the purists are not going to like this fancy schmancy design replacing the iconic design of the classic Microbus. But hey, you can’t have your cake and eat it too. “We are delighted that our parent company has taken the decision to produce the I.D. BUZZ. This vehicle is the perfect balance between emotion, usability and sustainability, while also showcasing our technological leadership. The high seating position, cargo capacity, overall versatility and all-wheel drive option packaged into such an appealing design is just what our customers want from us. And it’s the perfect fit for the zero-emissions American lifestyle,” commented Hinrich J. Woebcken, VW’s chief executive of the North American Region.

T-Roc concept sketch 2

You may remember the name T-Roc from a 2014 concept Volkswagen revealed in Geneva. They shelved the idea back then, but now it’s back with new looks and features and a production pass. The new 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc will debut later this month in pre-production from and will be released next year. 

To be honest VW should have made the T-Roc three years ago when the compact SUV market wasn’t as hot as today. It might have suffered a slow start, but as the urban crossover trend gathered heat it could become one of the top players. Now though, 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc will have to start from scratch and fight its way up. It does seem to have all it needs to succeed, though.

As with all small crossover SUVs, the ultimate goal of 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc is to blend effortless superiority of an SUV with the agility of a sporty, compact model. This is also reflected in the car’s design, which is both compact and sporty and kind of rugged looking and tough. You can’t go on a safari with it, but it can handle the occasional venture into the nature just fine, probably better than most its rival if it gets VW’s 4MOTION and one of the good turbo petrol engines they offer.

Stay tuned for official pictures, details and videos over the coming days.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 VW Atlas Named a Top Safety Pick by IIHS

atlas-iihs-crash-test

If the reason you haven’t ordered a 2018 VW Atlas so far has been concerns about safety, well go ahead and place that order because this SUV is pretty much as safe as they come. That is what Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) attests to by giving the Atlas the 2017 Top Safety Pick award. 

The Atlas SUV earned  “Good” ratings in IIHS crash tests evaluated in five categories: frontal impact moderate overlap; frontal impact small overlap; side impact; roof strength; and head restraints.And when equipped with the autonomous emergency braking system (AEB) it even gets an advanced rating (Superior) for front crash prevention. So yes, 2018 VW Atlas might be fairly ugly, and it may come from a company whose reputation is tainted with lies, but at least your kids will be safe in it.

It’s no wonder the Atlas performed so well in IIHS crash tests seeing as it can be specified with a long list of active and passive safety features. You get Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC); Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning (Lane Assist), front and rear Park Distance Control (ParkPilot), Parking Steering Assistant (Park Assist); High Beam Control (Light Assist) and Overhead View Camera (Area View). There is also Automatic Post-Collision Braking System which applies the brakes when a primary collision is detected by the airbag sensors, thus helping reduce residual kinetic energy and, in turn, the chance of additional damage.
