2019 Volkswagen Atlas Review: The World’s Biggest VW Is Good

This is one instance where arguing that the Volkswagen Atlas is not a true VW is pointless. It is selling like mad. I was among the first to be horrified to learn that Volkswagen was pulling the plug on the Passat wagon in the first few months of this quickly dissolving decade. The new VW Tiguan had made its appearance, joining the Touareg SUV, but this was only the beginning of VW’s incursion into the ...

Volkswagen 4MOTION; Tackling climate and roads

AWD (4WD and 4X4) drivetrains were once limited to trucks, and the very rare Jensen, AMC, Subaru or Audi cars. Nearly 40 years have passed since the American Motor Corporation introduced the Eagle, or what is essentially the first production “car” to offer four-wheel drive. While a handful of carmakers picked up on the technology, most considered it too costly and bulky to offer on a large scale. The last decade has seen an incredible ...

Although there are great similarities between the compact T-ROC and the Audi Q2, the VW features some very distinct styling features. The front fascia is an evolved and sportier design over that of the ...

CAR NEWS: VW Dieselgate 2.0?

We’ve all read the headlines stating that Volkswagen was caught lying about emissions in late 2015. Specifically, their TDI engines were equipped with a cheating device that knew when to keep things clean, as in when being tested, and when not to, as in when the owner was doing his or her thing.

FIRST REVIEW: 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

2018 Volkswagen Atlas

Volkswagen was a little late to the modern SUV party. Back in the day, from 1968 to 1983, they had the Type 181, also known as the “Thing” but this is not exactly the type of SUV we’re talking about. The compact Tiguan showed up in 2009 preceded by the Touareg in 2004 but despite both these players, the lack of a 3-row ute was evident. You’re more than likely aware that utility vehicles are ...
