The All-Electric Volkswagen ID Buggy Concept Signals a Giant Shift

We just got our first look at the Volkswagen ID Buggy Concept, and it’s safe to say this is a ground-breaking vehicle. It might sound like hyperbole, but this humble little beach machine could signal a paradigm shift in the industry, and forever change how people think about their vehicles. Now, that’s not to say that the vehicle pictured here will become as ubiquitous as the original Beetle. Because while there are obviously enthusiasts who’d love to take it as is, the fact of the matter is that most people…

VW Beach Buggy Concept Headed to Geneva Motor Show

Late last month, we wrote about how Volkswagen’s Christmas card to dealers hinted there might be something cool in the product pipeline — and now we know what it is. As the yuletide image suggests, it’s a modern VW beach buggy. Unfortunately, it’s just a concept at this point, and we won’t even get a full look at this dream machine until it debuts at the Geneva Motor Show in March. That said, we know that Volkswagen is ambitiously aiming to put 15 million electric cars on the road, and…

Upscale Fun: 2019 Volkswagen Jetta SE Test Drive Review

As it usually goes, our first test drive review of the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta had us sampling one of the compact sedan’s higher trim levels, the SEL – the second-highest version of the Jetta after the SEL Premium trim with some impressive class-exclusive features.

How does this decontented seventh-generation Jetta stack up against its compact sedan rivals like the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra? We spent a week…

Fans of the iconic Volkswagen bus have been being teased with a modern replacement for two decades, and with the electric I.D. Buzz concept headed to showrooms in 2020, it looks like they’ll finally get their wish. And if the Christmas card the company sent out is any indication, it looks like even more cool retro-themed product is on the way — possibly including a new version of the beach buggy. The tech that will be behind all the retro designs is Volkswagen’s Modular Electric Drive Matrix platform, which is designed to…

One Big VW: 2018 Volkswagen Atlas R-Line Test Drive

As nice as the new Jetta and Tiguan are, the most important addition to Volkswagen’s lineup has been the American-made Atlas, which gives VW an ever-important three-row crossover. We’ve already been quite impressed by the SE and SEL Premium trim levels of this crossover, but both of those were equipped with 4Motion all-wheel drive. Looking around at this segment, one of the more important factors for success is the amount of variety offered to buyers, so this time around we were able to sample the front-wheel-drive 2018 Volkswagen Atlas SEL…
