2021 Volkswagen Golf adopts conventional automatic, DSG for performance models

Regular versions of the 2021 Volkswagen Mk8 Golf will eschew dual-clutch gearboxes in favour of conventional automatic transmissions. The switch only applies to regular versions of the 2021 Volkswagen Mk8 Golf powered by a 1.4-litre 110kW petrol engine with an automatic, the same combination found in the Skoda Karoq. The 2021 Volkswagen Mk8 Golf R, GTI, and Alltrack models will still use dual-clutch automatic transmissions (known as DSG in Volkswagen parlance).

2020 Skoda Karoq gets less efficient 110TSI engine, new 140TSI Sportline hero

Skoda will swap the 1.5-litre engine in the base Karoq for a less efficient 1.4-litre unit in 2020 – and it says Australia's emissions regulations are to blame. The only Karoq on offer in Australia is currently the 110TSI, which is powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine making 110kW and 250Nm. It's mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Skoda recalls MY18 models over airbag fix

Skoda Australia has issued a recall for 27 vehicles across the 2018 model-year Fabia, Karoq, Kodiaq, Octavia, Rapid and Superb lines due to an airbag fault that may see the driver’s unit not inflate properly in the event of a collision. “In some instances, the front driver air bag may not inflate to its fullest capacity fast enough when required,” the company says in the recall notice.
