2019 Audi A8 preview
2019 Audi A8 preview

The 2019 Audi A8 could be the first car on U.S. roads to deliver Level 3 self-driving capability, but U.S. lawmakers will have the final say. The new A8 made its debut on July 11 in Barcelona, long before an on-sale date in 2018. Audi has let technology do the talking for the new A8...Read More»

2017 Volkswagen CC
2017 Volkswagen CC

The 2017 Volkswagen CC is an aging but still handsome "four-door coupe," meaning a four-door sedan with a lower and sleeker roofline than VW's squarer and more upright Passat (which sells in much higher numbers). It's actually a mechanical cousin to the last-generation VW Passat, the...Read More»

2017 Volkswagen Golf
2017 Volkswagen Golf

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf is a bar set for other compact cars in its class. It now spans a model line that includes two- and four-door hatchbacks, sporty hatchbacks, and a wagon with available all-wheel drive, which is new for this year. We give the new Golf a score of 6.5. Pedestrian...Read More»

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan
2017 Volkswagen Tiguan

The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan is the smaller of two SUVs now in the VW lineup, below the large and pricey Touareg. It's small compared to the other compact crossovers it competes with, and the conservative design has aged well. But it's pricey, falls down on safety, and lacks numerous...Read More»

2017 Volkswagen Touareg
2017 Volkswagen Touareg

The 2017 Volkswagen Touareg is a five-seat crossover SUV with a couple of problems. The first is existential: it's really a rival for the Mercedes GLE and BMW X5 in price, but it's awkwardly pitched now as a half-step down from those vehicles, a half-step up from more pedestrian...Read More»

2017 Volkswagen e-Golf

Now in its third year, the 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf is the first and so far only all-electric VW offered in the U.S. and Canada. Even owners will have to look twice to realize that it's a different version of the seventh-generation Golf hatchback, powered by a battery and electric motor...Read More»

2017 Volkswagen Jetta
2017 Volkswagen Jetta

The 2017 Volkswagen Jetta is a compact car in a cutthroat segment that carves costs—not canyon corners. It's VW's best-selling car and is sedan-only these days—anything with a hatch is called a Golf now. The Jetta competes with heavy hitters such as the Honda Civic, Toyota...Read More»

2017 Volkswagen Passat
2017 Volkswagen Passat

The latest Volkswagen Passat has been the best-selling version of the nameplate in the company's history, yet some within VW's C-suite aren't pleased. Sales of the mid-size sedan hasn't kept pace with the Toyota Camry or Honda Accord, which dominate the segment, and the Passat struggles...Read More»

2017 Volkswagen Beetle
2017 Volkswagen Beetle

Yearning for the 1960s? The Volkswagen Beetle is (still) the car for you. This latest model is more macho and sporty than the last retro revamp from Volkswagen, but there's no denying that it trades on its retro heritage and its cheeky style. Beneath the Beetle's pert look inside and...Read More»

2017 Volvo XC90

New last year, the 2017 Volvo XC90 large luxury SUV appears to be succeeding in its mission of redefining where Volvo sits in the growing global luxury market. Its an understated and modest exterior design hides is a quietly elegant, supremely ergonomic, and easy-to-use family utility...Read More»

2017 Volvo V60
2017 Volvo V60

The 2017 Volvo V60 is the automaker's smallest wagon (for now) and carries the banner for the car company as the lone wagon in the States until the V90 shows up next year. (The XC70 was discontinued after 2016.) The V60 looks nothing like the boxy 240 and 740 models of...Read More»

2017 Volvo S60
2017 Volvo S60

The 2017 Volvo S60 sedan isn't completely new from the automaker, but it's still relatively significant. It's the first year the Swedish automaker has offered all 4-cylinder engines in all of its cars and SUVs, and it's the first year that a base S60 model can be fitted with all-wheel...Read More»
