    How Crossy and/or Sporty is this Atlas? Let me tell you! It’s handsome, its interior previews improvements that will soon come to the full-size Atlas, and is otherwise chunky. Volkswagen has solved the Atlas's biggest issue (its interior), but a few small problems persist. Yes, Volkswagen has...

    We've just finished driving Volkswagen's latest Passat, the new for 2020 model. If you're thinking it doesn't exactly look entirely new, then you're right. This one's more about evolution, and that's fitting in today's sedan marketplace where survival of the fittest is the name of the game and...

    The smallest crossover VW sells globally, the T-Cross, is a whopping 23 inches shorter than the US-spec Tiguan. And yet, somehow, the T-Cross uses the same MQB platform as so the Tiguan and even the Atlas. A recent trip to Ireland, though, has us thinking that maybe MQB works best on smaller...

    Looks like Volkswagen knows how to party because the California knows how to party. It's the sixth-generation of the venerable Volkswagen camper van, which shot to popularity back when owners first started to use them to smoke their stuff and drink all their wine back in the 1960s,  and it...

    In a story that has absolutely no relevance to today, back in 1990 VW was struggling in America and the thing that saved them was a stylish, fun, surprisingly practical sports car.  Okay, so the Corrado was only among the things that saved Volkswagen in America, but the point remains that a...

    I like it. I like it a lot and that’s not just because it’s cheap or I got to drive it down the Tail of the Dragon and into Knoxville, Tennessee—though those two points certainly don’t hurt. I like because it performs enormously well and offers everything it has to give generously. I like it...

    There was a time. A time when an electric clock felt noteworthy and a parcel tray attached to the trunk by a string felt like the height of technology. And it was a good time because it produced the Scirocco. This utterly English review from Tony Bastable for the Thames TV’s Drive-in features...

    The Rabbit GTI has always been theVolkswagen to buy and with the name’s return for the seventh-and-a-half edition of the Golf, that hasn’t changed. The 2019 Golf GTI Rabbit Edition is theVolkswagen to buy. If I had any money at all, I’d go out and buy one today. I didn’t need to drive it...

    Many crossovers are really just tall wagons, and the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan looks the part. It has a boxy overall shape with angles and curves mixed in. Drop its ride height, and it’s a wagon. Fine. That’s sort of the point – crossovers promise the utility of wagons with a taller seating...

    It started with a look in the hatch of the Atlas. There was something I'd never seen before. So I reached out to the rest of the VW Vortex editorial brain trust. They hadn't seen anything like it either. The Atlas had a feature that none of us had seen in another vehicle. One that might be my...

    Many enthusiasts are quick to point out the similarities between the  Lamborghini  Huracan and the  Audi  R8. They’re not entirely wrong — the two cars share a few key components including the chassis, transmission, and the 10-cylinder engine, which is the same design and partially made in the...

    Of all the entries in the German luxo-hot-rod derby, Audi has consistently avoided following the rest of the pack. By remaining true to its all-wheel-drive formula, the brand’s S – and then RS – divisions have resisted the temptation to simply build a variant of the BMW M3, an affliction that...

    The Volkswagen Tiguan is all-new in North America for model-year 2018 and here’s what’s up with this straight-laced crossover. Now in its second generation, the Tiggy has grown a fair amount compared to its predecessor, gaining a couple hundred pounds in the process. New features, more...

    The Jetta is a difficult car. The Mk7 comes at a time when it’s almost guaranteed to look unsuccessful as sedans fall increasingly out of fashion and subprime lending and cheap gas lead to more and more luxury SUV sales. The whole industry is going upmarket but making an economy car feel...

    Look. It's good. It's actually really good. But I can't help wanting more. It doesn't make me giggle, it doesn't sound that much better, and it doesn't feel as special as VW is trying to convince you it is. It feels just a little too anodyne, a little too safe, a little too smart. It just...

    Audi and its Quattro all-wheel drive is a pairing that makes serious artistry of the road. It’s like the duo of Daft Punk (if you’re an electronic music fan), The Black Keys (for the rock fans), or Hall and Oates or Simon and Garfunkel (for the fans of the older stuff). To have one without the...

    We all like comfort food. It’s not sexy, it may even be bland, but it keeps us feeling full and fulfilled. Meatloaf, a basic steak and potatoes, a hot turkey plate – all of these items serve that purpose. I don’t know enough about German cuisine to guess what constitutes comfort food in...

    The Audi A7 is the German automaker’s unique take on a four-door car that combines a sleek, swept-back coupe profile with a practical liftback. But since its debut nearly eight years ago, the A7 has been shamefully copied by companies like BMW (with the 6 Series Gran Turismo), Kia (with the...
