VW quits diesel in U.S., New Audi R&D lead, Zero electric motorcycles: What's New @ The Car Connection

November 28, 2016

If you're an Audi fan, you were probably sad to learn that your fave luxury brand plans to offer just one diesel model in its U.S. lineup. But buck up, kiddo: that's one more than fans of Audi's mass-market sibling, VW, will have to choose from.

Believe it or not, the Jeep Renegade and Nissan Juke are in the same category of small SUVs. But they could hardly be more different. The Renegade is Jeep's littlest SUV, with square-cut styling and genuine off-road prowess. The Juke, on the other hand, is a style-first urban warrior whose all-wheel-drive option is more for on-road traction than anything even in the neighborhood of rocky trails or mountain climbing. 

Toyota is recalling the 2011-2016 Toyota Sienna minivan to fix a problem that can affect its sliding doors. According to the automaker, some 744,000 vehicles registered in the U.S. will have to be repaired because of the issue.
