    At a state of the union-style meeting Wednesday, Volkswagen reported that it's on track to achieve goals it set for itself in 2016 and has gained 19% market share worldwide.

    Friend of the site and former contributor Sam McEachern once observed that a convertible SUV perfectly sums up the German sense of humor. Turns out VW is really committed to this bit because they’ve announced today that production is starting on the T-Roc cabriolet. It turns out that T-Roc...

    Great news for everyone who thought that the Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet was a great idea, but not Volkswageny enough. The open-top crossover segment size has officially grown. Its name is Teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee T-Roc Cabriolet. This is for the questions that don't have any answers. Because...

    It was a momentous day for the R brand in Geneva today, as Volkswagen unveiled its first non-Golf R: the T Roc R. With a Golf R-rivaling 300 hp and 295 ft-lb of torque, not to mention a 7-speed DSG gearbox and 4Motion AWD system, the T Rocker can get to 62 mph in a pretty respectable 4.9...

    We’ve long suspected that VW would apply the R badge to something new, and the brand has finally revealed what the first R that’s not a Golf will be: the T-Roc R. Despite revealing that the Europe-only small SUV will be getting the R treatment, it hasn’t actually revealed the car. So far we...

    The world is intent on giving us crossovers with more power and “sporty” looks, so who is Volkswagen to stand in opposition. That’s why this: the supposed T-Roc R, is so inevitable. Not inevitable in the US, mind you, where the VW has no clear intention of releases the subcompact crossover...

    Say the words “drop-top utility vehicle” and American minds desperately conjure up memories of Chevrolet, GMC, Ford, Dodge, and International Harvester models of the 1970s — anything to avoid visions of the defunct Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet and somehow still alive Range Rover Evoque...

    The world of crossovers keeps getting smaller and Volkswagen wants in on the shrinking fun. To that end it has introduced its smallest crossover yet, the T-Cross. While we don’t expect that this will ever be offered for sale in America, it will be sold and build in Europe, China, and South...

    Spy photographers have caught a  Volkswagen  T-Roc prototype testing in Europe. At first glance, the T-Roc looks like the standard model, but it’s missing its fog lights and has a different exhaust setup in the rear. The quad-exhaust setup suggests this is a hotter variant being tested...

    Sporty sub-brands are all the rage these days, with everyone from Audi Sport to AMG to Cupra gaining more autonomy—and aren't even a little bit a cynical way to sell SUVs by turning them into tippy muscle cars. After years of teasing, Volkswagen’s R badge may finally be getting the spinoff it...

    Hmm. Okay, then. In the realm of harmless mysteries, convertible crossovers rank pretty high—just above Turkish Delight and below the Shake Weight (seriously, how did that happen?). But VW apparently knows something that I don’t and has decided that what the T-Roc really needs is less rigidity...

    As part of the 2017 Redbull Global Rallycross Championship, a few key members of the media were invited to spend some time with VW North America CEO Hinrich Woebcken. It’s always exciting to be granted close to an hour with the leader of any company in an intimate setting, and this was no...

    Not only is Volkswagen’s recently unveiled T-Roc subcompact crossover destined to avoid U.S. shores , Volkswagen’s Canadian dealers won’t be offering the T-Roc, either.

    Volkswagen is perpetually late to the SUV party. That much we knew already . The Volkswagen Touareg came late, and was improperly positioned. The Volkswagen Tiguan was much later, and it too was overpriced and undersized. The Volkswagen Atlas, the brand’s first three-row crossover, only arrived...

    The Mk1 Tiguan lives on as the Tiguan Limited, a value offering whose value VW has just announced. Starting at just $21,995 and with few options to increase that price, the Tiguan Limited will appeal to even the most miserly of Scrooges. The new-old car is also “low complexity,” which means...
