Features of Volkswagen hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles

On some level, we all probably realize hybrid, and eventually electric, vehicles are the wave of the future.

Is Volkswagen bringing back the Golf Cabriolet?

It seems like every automaker has such a wide variety of models, that it can be difficult to keep up, let alone choose. It’s an expensive endeavor to keep alive models that don’t sell well, which is why the 2016 Volkswagen Eos is the last model year for the hardtop convertible.

There are many apps that make our lives convenient, not to mention the ease of communicating with friends and family when we’re on the road. It seems like compatibility should be widely available in all vehicles, but the technology has fallen behind, typically leaving vehicles with an “either or” option when it comes to Apple versus Android devices.
