Well, you’ll be happy to know there are some small changes and new standard features. Volkswagen also gave the model what it calls a “value realignment” by moving some high-end features to lower trim levels. Read the rest of this entry »

2019 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack trim levels

We all like to have options, but when it comes to trim levels, it can be a bit confusing. Models like the 2019 VW Atlas will have different engine options, while models like the 2019 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack have just the one powertrain choice. We like to think this makes it a touch simpler to find the right Golf Alltrack trim for your preferences and price range. Read the rest of this entry »

It was said earlier in the year that VW would be making a powerful Jetta to break records at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Last month, automotive journalists speculated that VW didn’t attend Bonneville Speed Week, but VW has officially attended the World of Speed event and managed to break the record VW had set its sights on the Southern California Timing Association’s Blown Gas Coupe land-speed record. Clocking in at 210.16 mph, the old record of 208.72 is officially shattered. Here are the fresh pictures and video of the 2019 Bonneville Volkswagen Jetta that took the title.

Volkswagen I.D. BUZZ CARGO Concept Van

We’ve been excited for the I.D. BUZZ as a potential reintroduction of the Microbus, but it seems the model is a few years out from production. Now VW has unveiled another concept of this model in the form of a light commercial vehicle. The I.D. BUZZ CARGO would be an all-electric van made from commercial use. Though it’s not available in the U.S., VW is already known for the Transporter, but the I.D. BUZZ CARGO would be different in its features and the fact that it’s built on the MEB platform.

2019 Volkswagen standard driver assistance features

It’s strange to think that Bluetooth is considered a standard for the vast majority of automakers, but safety features are still considered a luxury. We’re looking at you, driver assistance features. Though most OEMs will agree that automatic emergency braking is a necessity for new vehicles, the same isn’t often said for blind spot monitoring or lane keeping assistance. Still, both functions help alert drivers when they may be about to make an error that could result in a collision. These functions not only help keep the driver safe, but helps improve safety for others on the road. Read the rest of this entry »

Here’s something we didn’t expect: The 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is being replaced in the 2019 Volkswagen Golf. To make the model more efficient, the favorite hatchback will not have a 1.4T, the same that is found in the redesigned 2019 Volkswagen Jetta. Read the rest of this entry »

2019 Beetle Convertible Final Edition

A brief history of the VW Beetle in the U.S.

When you look up the history of the Volkswagen Beetle, you’ll learn that the vehicle’s history dates back to the 1930s, and it would seem the vehicle has been in production non-stop since then. Well, this is technically true, but very misleading for those of us in the U.S. The model’s history is not nearly so long here and far from that continuous. Here’s a brief look at the Volkswagen Beetle’s availability here in America. Read the rest of this entry »

Volkswagen Mass-Produced 3D Printed Parts

Ever since we first heard of 3D printing, there have been dreams of what could be made. From small figurines to makeup, we’ve seen a few strange things imagined. Automotive parts seem tame in comparison, so why haven’t 3D printed parts been introduced yet? In a sense, they have, but only for prototype models. Mass-produced parts have been difficult to do because 3D printing is slow. Now, Volkswagen has teamed up with HP and GNK Powder Metallurgy to create a process that is 50 times faster than traditional 3D printing. Read the rest of this entry »

2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI Rabbit Edition trim

Sometimes it feels like a bit of heritage has been lost when we refer to older generations of the Golf as, well, the Golf. Those who drove this humble vehicle back in the 1980s will remember it as the VW Rabbit. With the design changing so much over the decades, those who aren’t in the know might not even realize it’s the same model. Of course, outside of the United States, the Golf has always been the Golf. Still, there’s a bit of nostalgia for us when we hear the old Rabbit name, and VW clearly knows this. That’s why there will be a 2019 Volkswagen Golf Rabbit Edition trim for the upcoming model year.
