Genesis is always classic. The very beginning of a revolution is never forgotten. Following the same lines, every new Golf GTI revealed is celebrated as the evolution of hot hatches, a formula that was made popular by the very first Mark I Golf GTI back in 1975. Since then, the GTI has grown in all ways and a few days ago, came a new one. This time, for the eighth generation of the GTI, the launch went as planned with no surprises except for an easter egg.
The current generation Volkswagen Passat has been around for 8 years. The 2020 model now gets a much-needed facelift, as well interior upgrades with new technology and additional safety features.
The 2020 Volkswagen Passat was recently revealed at this year’s Detroit Auto Show. It gets some exterior updates and new tech features, along with a choice of new body paint colours and interior upholstery designs.
The Volkswagen Touareg has always occupied an awkward niche in the midsize SUV segment. Not quite mainstream, but not quite premium either, it’s left to do battle with everything from Jeep Grand Cherokees to BMW X5s, while even targeting lower-end Toyota Land Cruisers and Nissan Patrols in terms of price (and VW admitted as much). Now there’s a new-generation Touareg in town, and its objectives are clearer.
With 2017 comes the mid-cycle refresh of the current and 7th generation Volkswagen Golf, bringing more power to the GTI, a racier new GTI Performance model and a 1.5-litre TSI engine for staple models with cylinder deactivation and a 7-speed DSG for the rest of the range.
Volkswagen’s crossover range always had some room at the top for a large seven seater SUV. Now the German manufacturer has made a step to fill that void with the VW Atlas. The American-made large SUV comes with seven seats and two punchy engines. The Atlas will also be the second VW product to be produced at the company’s Chattanooga, Tennessee plant, after the Passat.
Following the arrival of the 40th anniversary Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport in April this year, the Middle East now gets the Clubsport with a 6-speed manual transmission option.
The Volkswagen Tiguan GTE concept debuted at the Frankfurt Auto Show last September. For the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, they have brought in a slightly modified version of this model, called the Tiguan GTE Active Concept.
