The VW BlueSport concept debuted at the Detroit Motor Show in January, and offered the prospect of an economical, fun roadster from the VW group. But at the time VW made it clear that the car would have to work across three of its brands to be viable. VW are obviously up for the project, […]
We really rate the VW Scirocco. It’s everything a small coupe should be. It’s very stylish, extremely well-built and fun to drive. We wrote about the new VW Scirocco GT TDI a few days ago, which offers all the style and fun of its siblings, but wrapped up with terrific economy. But next to be […]
I do like the Volkswagen Scirocco. I liked it when they produced the ‘Storm’ back in the ’70s, and I think the latest version is a great car, even if I would like to see a Scirocco with the same sort of cache as the Storm had back then. But today frugality is the key […]
Oh, that sounds interesting. An R Line Tiguan. Fresh from the hands of Volkswagen Individual (the VW in-house engineering mob) that brought us the Passat R36 and the Touareg R50.

Back in January, at the time of the Detroit Motor Show, we brought news of a compact VW Roadster concept that was reckoned to be ready for sign off by VW as an Audi and a VW economical, fun little Roadster, along the lines of the old British Sports cars from a previous generation, and […]

Also on offer will be a Passat BlueMotion, a Passat Blue TDi and a Passat TSi EcoFuel. I think we can guess which way VW are going […]
When you think of VW (Volkswagen, not the group as a whole) you don’t usually think of stylish coupes. Sensible hatchbacks and fairly boring saloons are what spring to mind, with one or two exceptions. And perhaps the biggest exception is the VW Passat CC. Spawned from the very middle of the road Passat, the […]
We reported last week on the VW BlueSport Concept, a relatively economical 2 seat roadster, which VW unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show. We said then that if we were VW we’d be pressing the start button as soon as possible, and reports seem to indicate that that is exactly what VW are hoping to […]
