The combination of its low-drag shape, light weight and plug-in hybrid system allow it to sip fuel at just 0.9 l/100km (261 mpg), but a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 11.9 seconds isn't what you'd call lightning quick. To rectify this VW has given the XL1 a sports makeover, with the help of a Ducati engine.  Read More

The VW Golf Alltrack bring the Golf into four-wheel territory

The Volkswagen Golf is something of a sensible urban classic that few would regard as having any offroad credentials. That image may soon change as VW prepares the Golf Alltrack for its World premiere at the Paris Motor Show next month. Just as the Passat Alltrack took the Passat into off-roading, the Golf Alltrack is designed to do the same for the Golf by adding all-wheel drive, a new selection of engines and new body styling.  Read More

Volkswagen presents the Transporter-based TRISTAR pickup truck

If your work carries you over the rugged ground of desert, forest or tundra, a rolling office like the Brabus Business Lounge is likely to break down before getting to the job site.

In place of the luxury van typical in roadtrip-ready office spaces, the Tristar is underpinned by a specially built 4Motion pickup truck.  Read More

The 8th-generation Volkswagen Passat

The phrase "all-new" is overused in the motoring world. In the world of platform sharing and gradual, evolutionary midlife changes, it's rare that a manufacturer releases a car that is new from the ground up. So when Volkswagen released its 8th generation Passat, you could be forgiven for questioning just how "new" it really was. But to write it off as a mere update would sell VW short, because the new Passat really has been redesigned from the ground up.  Read More
