Wagon vs. The Other Thing: As Volkswagen Prepares Next-generation Golf, Alltrack Consumes SportWagen

If you missed last week’s Volkswagen Golf kerfuffle, here’s a recap: a VW employee at a first drive event let slip that the basic (read: non-GTI, non-R) Golf and its SportWagen counterpart won’t make it to the U.S. after the eighth-generation model appears this fall. Fake news, said VW. Well, potentially inaccurate news, really.

2019 Jetta GLI First Drive – Jetta, Enhanced

There’s been a GLI version of the Jetta since 1984, and […] The post 2019 Jetta GLI First Drive – Jetta, Enhanced appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

An Amazon Air plane called CustomAir Obsession crashed on February 23, killing all three people on board. The cause of the crash remains unknown. In conversations with Business Insider before the crash, several pilots who fly planes for Amazon Air said they thought an accident was inevitable. These planes aren't owned by Amazon, and the people maintaining and flying these jumbo jets aren't Amazon employees. They're employees of Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) and Atlas Air Worldwide Holdin...

2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn Review – All-around Virtue, or the Auto Journalist’s Perfect Car

There’s a reason why the Volkswagen Golf GTI is fetishized by journalists and enthusiasts as perhaps the perfect daily-driver sporty car. Because if it isn’t, it’s damn near close. Changes for 2018 were minimal. The 2018 got a mild standard horsepower bump (assuming you’re using premium fuel) to 220, up from 210. Other changes included […] The post 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn Review – All-around Virtue, or the Auto Journalist’s Perfect Car appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Weirded Out by the Idea of a Golf GTI Mild Hybrid? You May Have Been Worrying for Nothing

According to Autocar, the eighth-generation Golf’s hot (but not hottest) hatch variant won’t go the […] The post Weirded Out by the Idea of a Golf GTI Mild Hybrid?
