Classic Volkswagens Make Some Light For Christmas
For many people out there the name "Volkswagen" is associated with the name "Golf." But, for the real Volkswagen fans it is the classic cars that make them nostalgic. Cars like T1 or the classic Beetle make many hearts beat faster.
So, why not feature them in the latest "Twinkle Light Cruise?"
2022 Volkswagen Taos
Being the most compact VW SUV you can buy right now, we are genuinely surprised by how good the Taos is. While the Tiguan was the most compact till now, the Taos, being the smallest, is surprisingly comfy in the rear which, in our opinion, is quite rare in this segment. It is decently powerful, packs a good amount of cabin and driver assistance features while holding a cheap price tag of $22,995. So, what do you get for that price?
Watch A Tuned Volkswagen Jetta Go Head-To-Head Against A Ford Mustang GT
‘Sam CarLegion’ has come up with yet another interesting drag race, this time pitting a Ford Mustang GT against a tuned Volkswagen Jetta. The Jetta makes almost as much power as the Mustang, but is significantly lighter than it. However, it is a front-wheel-drive car as opposed to the rear-wheel-drive layout on the Mustang. With so many factors working for and against it, do you think the Jetta will be able to beat the Ford Mustang GT?

This Drag Race Between Five German Cars Oozes With Unpredictability
The ‘Carwow’ team brought in five German cars to face each other on the drag strip. The contenders include the Audi RS3, the BMW M2, the Mercedes-AMG A45, the Porsche Cayman GTS, and the Volkswagen Golf R. All the cars have very different setups – some are naturally aspirated, some turbocharged; some are rear-wheel-drive, some all-wheel-drive – that make this an unpredictable race. Which car are you betting on here?
Volkswagen Aero B Caught Looking Like a Passat-Arteon Mashup
The Volkswagen Passat isn’t as dead as the media would lead you to believe, and the Aero B – a Passat-sized EV – isn’t going to replace it right away. In fact, the ICE-powered Passat will see one more generational shift that should keep it on the market, at least in some places, until the end of the decade. At that point, it will probably be replaced by the second-generation Aero B, but that’s still 8 years from now and we’re getting ahead of ourselves, so let’s take a look at these new spy shots of the Volkswagen Aero B.
The Volkswagen SP2 "Reborn" Is An Obscure Brazillian Classic, Reimagined
There are certain cars of the past that deserve to have a modern-day successor. Apparently, a designer that goes by the name of rob3rtdesign is of the same mind, as he has decided to take the Brazil-only Volkswagen SP2 and turn it into something that looks like an epic side project, made by RUF or Singer.
2022 Volkswagen T-Roc R
The German automobile conglomerate known as VAG has announced their most popular crossover globally, the T-Roc, with a facelift, and while the facelift brings a lot of changes to the overall design, it adds a lot of features too. The R variant of the T-Roc, however is majorly unchanged, especially in the powertrain department. But it is no slow bugger at all! So, how does it square up for the 2022 model year?
2022 Volkswagen Atlas
This Tennessee-built VW SUV is why you should look up to the mid-size segment, and for the 2022 model year, there have been some minor changes, including the discontinuation of the base S trim from the line-up, therefore, increasing the price. It will compete with the latest-gen Hyundai Palisade, Mazda CX-9, and the Honda Pilot. Will the $33,475 price tag justify its consideration over the competition? Keep reading to learn more about it.
The 2022 VW T-Roc Arrives With New Looks, Fresh Tech, and is More Practical than Ever
Volkswagen has revealed the updated T-Roc for the 2022 model and with it comes an all-new Cabriolet cabriolet body style. The updated looks and better technology aims to continue the T-Roc’s reign as one of the best-selling SUVs from the house of Volkswagen.
The Porsche IPO Isn’t happening Just Yet
If there’s one brand that’s catapulted EV ambitions within the Volkswagen Group, it has to be Porsche. While Audi may have been the first to bring their e-Tron to market, it wasn’t until the Taycan came along that several brands within the VW Group started making the shift to electric mobility.
The Invincible Porsche 911 GT3 RS Gets Beaten By A... Volkswagen Beetle?!?!
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is arguably one of the best internal combustion-engined cars on the drag strip. It has even beaten the likes of the Audi R8 Spyder. So, why even bother to put it up against an old-school, 1970s Volkswagen Beetle? Well, because this Beetle has been electrified and makes 450 horses! The Porsche makes more horsepower, but can the instant torque of the Beetle prove to be too much for the sports car?
The Volkswagen ID.5 Arrives As A Less-Practical ID.4 Coupe
Volkswagen continues to diversify its EV (and ID) portfolio with the new ID.5 electric crossover. Available at launch in two different trims – GTX and Standard – and with your choice of three different powertrain options, the ID.5 comes to fill the need of both families and enthusiasts alike. Does it look a lot like the ID.4? Well, that’s probably because it’s basically an ID.4 with a coupe-like roof, so there’s a lot of shared DNA here. What’s below the skin of the ID.5? More than you think.
Yes - A Volkswagen Golf Can Outgun the Ferrari 488 Pista
It sounds pretty absurd at the onset that a Volkswagen Golf can beat a Ferrari 488 Pista in a quarter-mile race. But, it actually can… on a technicality. The folks at ‘Driven Media’ pit these two very unlikely contenders in a drag race. It goes without saying that the Italian supercar will win, but is there a way the Golf can get the W? Well, it can if the Ferrari treats it as a standing drag race and the Golf as a rolling race. But, at what speed? Let’s find out.
2022 Volkswagen Golf R Mk8
After pulling the plug on the regular Golf, Volkswagen retained the GTI and R with the new generation in the U.S. A more powerful 315 horsepower pumping 2.0-liter engine is powering the Golf R and with that comes AWD as standard. The interior gets more sophisticated as it gets a bigger infotainment display and a fully digital instrument console along with ambient lighting and other goodies. Is the new 2022 Golf R the ultimate hot hatch in the segment?
Watch Two Tuned Performance Wagons Go For The Kill In Epic Series Of Races
There are some performance wagons in the market today, like the Audi RS6 Avant, the Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate, and even the upcoming BMW M3 Touring. But, scout deeper and you’ll find loads of aftermarket performance wagons. Jamie from ‘Officially Gassed – OG’ found two hot ones and decided to pit them against each other. These are the Subaru WRX STI Wagon, which has been here before, and the Volkswagen Golf R Estate. They both make around 500 horses each and come with a ton of mods. Which wagon are you rooting for?
Drag Race: Kia Stinger GT Vs Volkswagen Arteon R Shooting Brake
It’s another drag race from our UK colleagues from Carwow and this time, the Kia Stinger GT goes up against the Volkswagen Arteon R Shooting Brake. Although both cars compete in the same segment, they are propelled by very different drivetrains. Will more power and torque prevail over less weight, all-wheel drive, and a DSG gearbox?
We Just Caught the Volkswagen ID.5 GTX Making Short Work of the Nurburgring
Volkswagen was supposed to debut the ID.5 GTX at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show in Munich, but canceled it at the last minute. We saw a camouflaged version ahead of the show which didn’t hide much of the styling cues, but it was still with some skin. Now, the coupe-version of the ID.4 was recently spotted stretching its legs at the Nürburgring without nearly any camouflage this time.
2021 Volkswagen Golf R Variant By PS-Sattlerei
In Europe, the Volkswagen Golf is a very popular car: you can spot one at literally every corner! Well, at least the standard version, as when it comes to the GTI or the R versions things are a little bit different. Of course, that’s because there are not as many in production as the standard version.
This doesn’t mean though that the Golf R doesn’t enjoy a lot of attention, especially from tuners! Just recently, ABT Sportsline came with a pretty cool update kit for the Golf R hatch, and today is time to talk about an upgrade for the Golf R Variant.
Volkswagen ID.4 Ready To Enter Rebelle Rally
With a history of six years, the Rebelle Rally is a competition for women, but is nowhere near an easy one. A pair consisting of a driver and a navigator need to use their skills, navigation tools, and limited supplies across 1,400 miles through the deserts of Nevada and California.
And, this year’s competition will see the entry of the Volkswagen ID.4 AWD Pro electric SUV. It will be driven by Mercedes Lilienthal, with Emily Winslow being the navigator. The competition will take place from October 7–16, 2021.

2022 Volkswagen Polo GTI
Volkswagen introduced the new Polo GTI at the IAA 2021 in Munich. It instantly caught a lot of attention thanks to some design styling borrowed from the new eighth-gen Golf. The new Polo GTI has a lot on offer for the price and is one of the best-selling hot hatches in the European market. Read more to get a detailed emphasis on this new budget hot hatch.
Watch The BMW M3 Make A Mockery Out Of The Volkswagen Golf R In A Series Of Straight-Line Races
Drag races are fun when the cars involved in the race are closely matched and you don’t know which one’s going to win. They’re even more fun when they’re vastly different from each other, but make for a hell of a race. Or, sometimes the underdog snatches a win over the car expected to be the winner. However, there are some lopsided races once in a while, and this one between the BMW M3 Competition and the Volkswagen Golf R is one of them. Both the cars are known for their performance, but when they came face-to-face, it was a different story altogether.
