    The launch of the Volkswagen Arteon should have been a big hit. Sleek four-door coupe styling and what is arguably better styling than the more premium Audi A5 along with some of VW's best tech. Instead, it arrived as a bit of a thud, one that many buyers probably didn't even notice...

    The TT RS is, as the experts say, "damn good." So when Audi's crack team of designers started its mid-cycle facelift, they wisely chose to keep the updates mild. Audi appears to have mostly worked on sharpening what was already there, folding creases tighter, making the bulges look more...

    Audi appears to be rethinking its historic “four rings” logo, according to trademark filings our team uncovered. While they don’t give up on the essential idea, they update the interior part of the logo to more fully connect the rings. We found two potential logos that appear to be playing...

    With the update to the Golf family comes a new transmission, straight from the skunkworks in Wolfsburg. For right now, only one car in all of North America can be purchased with VW's seven-speed, dual-clutch DSG transmission and it is, of course, the Golf R. But can it hold a candle to the...

    Yesterday we wrote about the updated Golf, known informally as the Mk7.5, due in local showrooms any day now. With the update, though, we still won’t get any two-door Golfs. “We are four-door [only] for the hatchbacks. We no longer offer a two-door,” Megan Garbis, product manager, told us at...

    It is part of the critic’s job to constantly strive for more. Much like brushing your teeth, the job of improving a car is never really done, it just has to stop eventually. A critic’s job is to investigate why a carmaker stopped where it did and ask for more. Because that’s how improvement...

    Way back in March Volkswagen released a teaser for the updated Golf R with performance options and then quickly took it down. Now, though, it’s back with just as much performance-y goodness. The new teaser subtly different than the last one, but mostly promises the same goodies for the Golf...

    The facelifted 2018 American Golf R, unlike its European equivalent, will gain no power when it arrives. That means that it will only make 292 hp, instead of the mildly improved 306 hp. That’s according to a new report from Car and Driver  that states that it will be the 2018 Golf that...

    With the release of the updated Golf late last year, updated equipment packages have been trickling out. The latest is the Golf and Golf Variant R-Line package. R-Line cars come with added flair inside and/or out, but without the big power of the Golf R. For those who only want their car’s...

    When Volkswagen revealed the updated Golf in early November, there was one glaring omission: the Golf R. Now, details for the new European R have finally been revealed and it’s getting 10 more PS (9.8 hp). With 310 PS (~305 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque—that’s 14 lb-ft more—the Golf R is...
