Nowadays though, Volkswagen no longer has a convertible model, as the Beetle faces its last production year in 2019. At least for the knowable future. In its place, Volkswagen recently announced the production of the T-Roc Cabriolet.
But what is the Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet? (more…)

2020 Updates for Volkswagen Car-Net® Feature
Car-Net® is a mobile service offered for Volkswagen vehicles. It lets you do things like start, lock, and monitor your car all from your smart phone. It’s a great feature. Unfortunately, it was only available on a few 2019 Volkswagen models.

Is VW discontinuing the V6 engine?
For those of us who have been on the road long enough, we can remember when the V6 engine was the go-to option. After all, it had a lot more power than 4-cylinder counterparts and gas prices weren’t such a big concern as they are today. Nor were we as environmentally aware. Of course, back then turbocharged engines weren’t widely available, so the choice was very much about power or fuel economy. It’s true that the VR6 engine found in VW is still more potent than many turbo options, though not all, but it simply isn’t as fuel-friendly as turbo options. So, does this mean VW will be discontinuing the V6 engine? (more…)
What is the Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak?
Volkswagen isn’t an automaker that is one to shy from a challenge, but there’s one race the brand hasn’t participated in for decades: the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Taking place in Colorado Springs, CO, this event isn’t a regular race. Instead, participating brands are challenged to make the fastest time while climbing 4,720 feet.

This is why the Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak supercar is such an important announcement for the brand’s motorsports division. VW it out to prove not only that it can break a record, but also that EV technology has advanced quite a lot in the last few years. (more…)
