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. At the time when it was introduced, hardtop convertibles had been a more popular choice, but with soft top options proving more popular, it just doesn’t make sense in the American market anymore. Which brings us to the Golf Cabriolet. The model is a soft top, but hasn’t been sold here in 13 years. That’s right, not since 2002 have we seen a new rendering of it. With the Eos on its way out, is Volkswagen bringing back the Golf Cabriolet? Read the rest of this entry »

Discontinued 2016 VW Eos Komfort

Discontinued 2016 VW Eos Komfort

We’d like to say it’s time to say goodbye to a beloved model, but we know a niche when we see it. The Eos never met with much popularity here in the States, or we wouldn’t be talking about a model that’s making one last go at dealerships before taking a graceful exit. Still, it’s hard to see the now discontinued 2016 VW Eos Komfort go. Some say the reason it never sold well is because of pricing, others because it wasn’t marketed well, but either way it had something to offer than to other model on the market has.

Standard automatic emergency braking in Volkswagen

Just like every industry, automotive advertising puts quite a bit of focus on the latest and greatest features offered in select models.

Now some key players in automotive safety are pushing automakers to take the premium away from driver assistance features, which could mean standard automatic emergency braking in Volkswagen models.
