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.

So Funky, So French: Wild Citroën C4 Cactus Airflow 2L Uses Compressed-Air (!) Hybrid Powertrain to Achieve 118 mpg

Sep 22 2014 5:12pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

How does one polish a cactus? Remove the needles, of course. That’s what Citroën has done with its funky-French C4 Cactus crossover to create the Airflow 2L concept, which makes its aerodynamic, in-the-succulent debut at the 2014 Paris auto show next week. Citroën shaved this Cactus for one reason: Fuel economy. In an automotive sense, a car’s “needles” are its various drag-inducing body pieces. Thus, Citroën streamlined ...

When last we checked in on the crowd-sourced-design maestros over at Local Motors, the outfit was in the thick of a design competition focused on an all-new, 3-D–printed electric vehicle. A few months later, the winning car has become a thing with a name: Strati.

Volkswagen Tristar Concept Unveiled at IAA Commercial Show

Sep 22 2014 3:09pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Concept Commemorates 30th Anniversary of Syncro All-Wheel DriveAside from the Amarok, Volkswagen may not be the first name that springs to mind when you think of pickups, but the company has been making truck-like vehicles for decades, with pickup variants of the Transporter or Microbus hauling stuff around since the 1960s. It may have its engine in the “wrong” end and be cooled by water instead of air, but we still think the Volkswagen Tristar concept is a faithful modern-day inter ...

Filed under: Hybrid, Sedan, Toyota, Quick Spins Toyota offers many flavors of its refreshed 2015 Camry, but those who choose to lower their operating cost-per-mile, squeeze 500-plus miles out of each tank of fuel or run a very efficient and reliable sedan in their taxi fleets will only be interested in one: the Camry Hybrid. The exterior of the 2015 Camry Hybrid is nearly indistinguishable from its gasoline-only counterparts, with the same all-ne ...

French Hypermiling: Ultralight Renault EOLAB Pegged at 235 MPG

Sep 22 2014 9:55am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The recently revealed Renault EOLAB concept is providing a glimpse of our ultralight, aerodynamic future with its seemingly hyperbolic fuel-efficiency rating: 100km/liter (translating to 235 mpg on the Euro cycle). It may also be previewing the unbearable lightness of mpg’ing. With its generous use of magnesium, aluminum, and specialty plastics and polymers, the EOLAB enjoys an 880-pound weight sa ...

New Nissan Pulsar Compact Hatch Rivals VW Golf, But No U.S. Sales Planned

Sep 22 2014 6:30am CDT | Source: All Small Cars

Back in the 1980s, Nissan attached the name Pulsar NX to an unusual compact coupe that could be converted into a hatchback with removable panels. Now, Nissan is using the Pulsar name for a car that's a little less unconventional. The new Nissan Pulsar is a compact hatchback intended to steal sales from the Volkswagen Golf--but as of now, it won ...
