Volkswagen has announced pricing for the latest limited edition Beetle variant. The car is called the 2014 Beetle GSR and starts at $29,995 for versions featuring a six-speed manual transmission. The GSR will also be available with a six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission for $31,095.

Yesterday, we had a pretty spectacular video of the new VW Andretti Rallycross Beetle in tire-sacrificing action. In that article, Máté wisely called it the "fastest modern Beetle." I say "wise" because of the word "modern" in there. Because I don't think it's the fastest Bee ...

Even though the 2015 Volkswagen Jetta hasn't gone through a full redesign, it still managed to climb to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+ list. The new and improved ratings come thanks to a stronger body, bumping the Jetta up to the highest category that the Institute has to offer. The Jetta looks pretty much the same as it did for the previous model year, but engineers at Volkswagen have cleverly added hidden strength to the body. With st ...
