First look at the Volkswagen I.D. VIZZION concept
Love it or hate it, it’s clear that future of the automotive world is fully electric, and you might not find yourself behind the wheel. There’s always been a certain freedom in driving, but it’s also one of the most dangerous activities we do every day.

That’s exactly how Volkswagen is thinking about it in its new concept car, the Volkswagen I.D. VIZZION concept. Here’s a first look at the teaser images VW is offering ahead of the Geneva International Motor Show. Read the rest of this entry »

2019 Volkswagen Jetta redesign NAIAS 2018
For the 2015 model year, Volkswagen gave the Golf a complete redesign. 2016 brought a facelift to the Passat, while last year we saw the first Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. What about 2018?

New Features for the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack
One reason we truly love working with VW is the fact that things are changing every year. This might sound obvious to some, but you may be surprised by how often new vehicles come out with virtually no updates. The 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack was only just released last year, so it stands to reason that there wouldn’t be any major new features.
