Wolfsburg edition skates the gap between the base and mid-range Passat

It seems more than a little odd to me to create a special edition of the vehicle with the goal of being cheap. That is exactly what Volkswagen has done with the announcement of a new trim level for the Passat that is coming in the middle of 2013. The car is the Volkswagen Passat Wolfsburg edition.

The base price for the car will be $23,495. Volkswagen says that it will slot in its line between the base S model and the mid-level SE trim. The Wolfsburg edition will get several convenience features added to the base model at competitive price. The car will use a six-speed automatic transmission.

It will also feature Bluetooth technology, a multifunction steering wheel with audio and phone controls, automatic headlights, power exterior mirrors, and driver seat lumbar support. The Wolfsburg edition will also get distinctive 16-inch wheels, perforated V-Tex leatherette seating, power heated driver seat, satellite radio, and more.

Filed under: EV/Plug-in, Green Culture, Tesla Motors When is a Honda Accord more appealing than a Tesla Model S? When you're a thief. The Accord continues to reign as the most-stolen car in the US but the Model S is now claiming a new and interesting title: the least-stolen car in America. Last year, it wasn't even on the list. Of course, sometimes a Model S is stolen and the most famous case ended with tragic results. Last year the ...

Why turning off your engine is better for everyone

Aug 27 2014 6:04pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Letting your vehicle’s engine run while stopped in traffic, or waiting for a train to cross the railway tracks, is a waste of fuel, not to mention harmful to the environment. That’s why, to encourage drivers to turn off their engines when the car isn’t running, the Idle-Free BC initiative was created years ago. Experts now say shutting off and restarting the car also uses less fuel than letting it idle for one minute, busting the old myth t ...

10 Green Cars that Don’t Suck: Eco-Excellence at All Price Points

Aug 27 2014 5:19pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Mix pious intentions with dreary mechanical bits and then stir in some driving misery, and the result is a “green car.” Green not in the color of its paint, but in the environmental virtue of its engineering and marketing. Green as in economical with fuel but stingy on fun, great with emissions but lousy to pilot. Green cars are hybrids, diesels, and electric cars stripped to the point of making a rotted ox ...

2015 Volkswagen Eos Final Edition Means the End of the Road

Aug 27 2014 4:43pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

Remember when Volkswagen introduced the 2010 New Beetle Final Edition? It signaled the passing of a car that spent an eternal 13 model years going from spring chicken to throwback turkey. Well, the Final Edition is back, and it heralds the swan-song year for the Eos hardtop convertible, which arrived at U.S. dealerships eight years ago this month.

Dear John: I’m looking for a ‘sporty’ compact crossover

Aug 27 2014 3:09pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Industry experts think the compact crossover segment will replace the compact car class as the most popular with Canadian new car buyers sooner rather than later. Some obvious reasons are the extra interior room and readily available all-wheel-drive (AWD) that crossovers enjoy over their car counterparts. But you could also include the wide variety of models as a big factor, too. Which is why this month’s Dear John writer’s request for a “spor ...
