Volkswagen Golf Estate 1.5 EVO 2018 UK review

What is it? This is the Volkswagen Golf for someone who looks at the regular hatchback and thinks “I could do with a bit more boot space”. The Golf Estate is, for all sakes and purposes, largely identical to its hatchback stablemate. It sits on the same MQB platform, is available with […]

VOLKSWAGEN ATLAS FIRST DRIVE 2018 REVIEW

And it’s huge by VW standards. The Atlas is 9.5 inches longer than the Touareg, and its rear seat does something few of its competitors do: It fits full-size adult human beings. This isn’t a seven-seater just on paper, and accessing the rearmost two seats is fairly easy, thanks to […]

2018 VOLKSWAGEN T-ROC FIRST DRIVE REVIEW

Volkswagen has mostly squandered the SUV/crossover boom as we’ve known it to date. It offers only the upscale Touareg, which despite claiming 2004 Motor Trend SUV of the Year honors has averaged just over 10,000 annual sales, and the Tiguan, which entered what is currently the hottest segment in the […]

2018 VOLKSWAGEN ATLAS FIRST DRIVE REVIEW

The first thing you notice about the newest Volkswagen is its name stretched across a large chrome strip on the rear tailgate. And it’s missing the T. AtLast. It should be called the AtLast because it’s a good decade and a half overdue. Then again, given the tongue-twisted names of […]

Jaguar E-Pace review

Engineers will work to accomplish remarkable feats. But by gum, we’re asking them to here with the E-Pace, aren’t we? Today, the E-Pace arrives looking every bit as fresh as the rest of the Jaguar range and sits squarely in an ever-growing market. This whole SUV thing doesn’t look like ending, either. Around half […]

THE HIDDEN MESSAGE IN VW’S ATLAS PICKUP TRUCK

Regardless of its design, Volkswagen’s (now somewhat spoiled, thanks to Automotive News) surprise reveal of a unibody pickup concept at the New York auto show Wednesday provides two important proof points for the future of the German brand in the United States and its aspirations to grow much, much bigger. The first is easy to […]
