The Volkswagen Passat, the mid-sized car that forever changed the attitude of owning a “grown up” family sedan and wagon, is ready to take this popular segment to greater heights and was unveiled at one of metro Detroit's premier automotive events during a press conference on August 2, 2005 at Meadow Brook Mansion.
For the first time ever, Volkswagen has chosen the burgeoning Meadow Brook Concours d' Elegance, which has emerged as one of the most renowned automotive events in the world, to ta
Pre-production of the new VW Passat Estate has begun. The countdown to the European launch of the sixth new Volkswagen this year is underway: the first VW Passat Estates will be presented at VW dealerships in Germany, the debut market, on 19 August.

Volkswagen of America, Inc. revealed its “new” VW Beetle and VW Beetle convertible which has a subtle but stylish new look that fashionably updates, yet maintains, the core emotional appeal of the iconic new Beetle design, first launched in 1998.
The 2006 VW Beetle and the convertible will be launched in September of this year and will come standard with a more powerful new 2.5 liter, five-cylinder engine that creates 150 horsepower (versus the four-cylinder, 2.0 liter that created 115 hp).
Even more power for all Mercedes 63 AMG models: BRABUS B63 S engine tuning, which boosts power output of the high-revving 6.2-liter V8 to 550 hp / 404 kW and peak torque to 650 Nm. With a sprint time from rest to 100 km/h of just 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 330 km/h a CLS 63 AMG with BRABUS B63 S tuning turns in performance worthy of a true super sports car.
The BRABUS power kit comprises newly programmed engine electronics with special mapping for injection and ignition. But that’s not a
It can well be expected that their expectations will be met: Both the YES! Roadster and the YES CUP/R are a manifestation of the creed of two company founders and current managing directors Herbert Funke and Philipp Will: Reduce to the core. And for the two designers this means that the direct car-road communication must not be interfered by unnecessary gadg-ets. Hence, what the owner of a YES! will purchase is nothing more and nothing less than a driving machine.

In time for its 30th birthday, the new VW Polo appears optically more dynamic and fresher than ever before. The new front end with its V-shaped radiator grille, in particular, lends the VW Polo a significantly more striking look. Pre-sale will start on March 14; despite improved equipment, the vehicle's prices will remain at the same level.
The new VW Polo is coming! Based on its well-known virtues, the most recent generation of this all-round talent will remain the benchmark in its class. Th
It’s a statement, an automotive way of life. More than 800.000 drive one, the Volkswagen with the perhaps most famous design in the world: the New VW Beetle Ragster. For the North American International Auto Show in Detroit the German company presents the hot potential of the design classic – with a study on 2005 VW Beetle Ragster. Its most visible characteristic: a drastically dropped roof with a large ragtop.
