The 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack is the latest in a long line of Golf variants (including the Golf Variant wagon in Europe). Think Subaru Outback or Audi Allroad. It also comes with Volkswagen's solid 6-year/72,000-mile warranty.
Check the attic carefully, because your grandparents might have an Italian supercar hidden in plain sight.That seems to be the case with this Reddit user — who goes by the name egriegin — when she posted a photo of one very dusty Lamborghini Countach, along with the intriguing headline, "Despite the dust and rust, grandma's 1981 Lamborghini Countach is the coolest.
First off, don’t call the all new 2018 BMW X2 hatchback, even if it does look a bit like a slightly more beefed-up Volkswagen GTI. Because in the U.S., we generally dislike the tried-and-true hatchback, a type of car long loved in regions like Europe and Asia for their versatility, performance and fuel economy.
Volkswagen AG unit Electrify America said on Monday it is launching a national advertising campaign using cartoon icons the Flintstones and Jetsons in a bid to broaden consumer awareness of electric vehicles. The campaign is part of $45 million public education program and includes a television commercial called "JetStones." And even though it's funded by VW, it General Motors' fully electric Chevy Bolt model and includes existing models from other automakers.

Suspended Audi Chief Executive Officer Rupert Stadler lost a bid to end his detention in jail, with a German court saying that there is strong evidence that he turned a blind eye to the corporate shenanigans at the heart of the car company’s global diesel scandal. Stadler’s bid to be released from jail after more than seven weeks was rejected by the Munich appeals court, which said the evidence backs prosecutors allegations. Stadler, 55, is the highest profile executive detained since Audi parent company Volkswagen AG was engulfed in the diesel cheating scandal nearly three years ago.
The redesigned 2019 VW Jetta’s base MSRP of $18,545 is actually $100 less than the retiring model and it is considerably more car, as we shall see. At the retail level, VW management is earning back Americans’ trust the old-fashioned way: by putting it in writing. The Jetta includes the company’s six-year, 72,000-mile, bumper-to-bumper transferable warranty, which is roughly double the warranties of Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Nissan Sentra or Ford Focus.
The 2019 Audi A7 is a complete, ground-up redesign of the German company's midsize luxury hatchback, coupe-sedan thingy. The new A7's lower base price comes courtesy of a new Premium trim level. The extra money, or less if you're selecting the base trim, does net a thoroughly upgraded car.
City dwellers may be coughing and wheezing more, too. Diesel vehicles, which still command nearly half the market for new cars, are left with barely any pollution controls when temperatures soar above 35 degrees Celsius (95 Fahrenheit), according to France’s Petroleum and New Energies Research Institute. “There are higher emissions of nitrogen oxides because the setups don’t work as well when it’s very hot,” said Gaetan Monnier, who heads the unit that led random government probes of cars after the VW scandal.
Some of the most interesting of those morsels just came out: horsepower and torque. The Audi's dual motors, one in front and one in the rear, are officially rated at a total of 355 horsepower and 414 pound-feet of torque. The 355 horsepower and 414 pound-feet of torque are the main rating, and the motors are capable of producing those numbers for 60 seconds of sustained acceleration.
Audi is steadily revising its lineup so that every model has the company's corporate fascia first introduced on the A8. As such, it was only a matter of time before one of Audi's smallest and most affordable models, the A3 got the same treatment. As we already touched on, the A3 gets the big hexagonal grille found on other modern Audi cars.
Despite bearing the name of one of our states, VW's big camper van isn't sold in the U.S. Volkswagen just released info on a bigger, better model, dubbed the Grand California. It looks a lot like the VW California XXL concept that debuted last year, though it doesn't have the XXL's awkward looking extended roof in the rear. This is likely one of the last variants of the current model, as Volkswagen is set to launch a new camper van in 2019.
Before I went to Dubai last fall, I imagined a sea of supercars running rampant with few repercussions. Speed cameras in Dubai are no joke. The drivers, though occasionally erratic, steadfastly follow speed limits.
There are eight oil drain plugs on the underside of the Lamborghini Huracán. Suffice it to say, then, that changing the oil in a supercar like the Huracán is a tedious process. Royal Exotic Cars Fleet Manager Jesse Tang was recently filmed changing the oil in a Huracán that the company uses as a rental vehicle in Las Vegas.
Germany is going through one of its sunniest years on record, but the same cannot be said of the fortunes of Volkswagen AG (OCTMKTS:VLKAY). A German magazine Wirtschaftswoche reported that the VW group might have to recall as many as 124,000 electric and hybrid cars citing the presence of poisonous cadmium in its charger component. The line of cars under the radar would also include notable subsidiaries of the VW group - Audi AG (OCTMKTS:AUDVF) and Porsche ADR (OCTMKTS:POAHY).
Over the past few months, we've noticed a number of cars and SUVs that have come incredibly close to earning one of the IIHS's highest accolades, the Top Safety Pick rating. What trips them up is headlights. This is a revision made after 2017, a year in which headlights weren't factored in for this specific award.
British new car registrations rose by an annual 1.2 percent in July thanks to good weather and attractive sales offers, a car industry body said on Monday. Sales hit 163,898 units last month, with the market down 5.5 percent so far this year, in line with expectations, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders said. Registrations have recorded ups and downs in the first seven months of 2018, impacted by the sharp decline in demand for diesel and uncertainty over the outcome of Brexit talks, the SMMT has said, but in July there was modest growth.
was caught cheating diesel emissions tests in 2015, one of the first actions its engineers took was to launch a secret project: to obtain cars from rival manufacturers and conduct tests on their emissions. and others were tested for harmful nitrogen oxide emissions by VW engineers at the group’s Wolfsburg headquarters from late 2015 to early 2016. The engineers had a simple conundrum: VW had just admitted to equipping 11m cars with software to detect laboratory tests and enable them to enter a low-emissions mode.
Turns out Volkswagen AG Chief Executive Officer Herbert Diess had a point when he touted Ducati as probably the most valuable motorcycle brand in the world. The Italian maker of luxury two wheelers, which the CEO has said may be sold, trumped all others except cash cow Porsche in terms of first-half profitability, according to figures published Friday by VW’s Audi. Operating return on sales surged to 9.5 percent from 8.2 percent, even as deliveries declined.
