Volkswagens on ice (and track)

It's not often you get a chance to test cars back-to-back on the snow and the race track, but in places like Queenstown, New Zealand, you're as close to snow-capped mountain peaks as you are to the local circuit. When colleague Scott Collie came back from the BMW Alpine Experience having not actually experienced much in the way of alpine driving, I wasn't sure what to expect from the Volkswagen 4Motion 'Get A Grip' showcase, given the itinerary is entirely dependent on the weather...

Volkswagen Arteon Time Attack review: Mad apprentices

What happens when you take an Arteon R-Line and put it in the hands of a crew of Volkswagen Australia apprentices? You get the ART3on, a time-attack-ready Arteon! With a target of around 360-to-380kW and 600Nm of torque, and a 0-100km/h time below 4.0 seconds, Volkswagen's apprentice squad had their work cut out for them...

2018 Volkswagen Arteon review

See the full article here. Remember the Volkswagen Phaeton? While it never came to Australia, it became globally renowned for being somewhat of an over-engineered (Bentley-based) oddball. The people’s limousine, as it were, was produced for 15 years, but the Bentley-based model missed sales targets, flopped early in the crucial US market, was reportedly one of Europe’s biggest loss-makers, and failed to transform VW’s brand image as hoped...

2021 Volkswagen Arteon R spied

Volkswagen appears to be working on a powered-up version of its Arteon four-door coupe. A prototype snapped with big wheels and brakes, and an angry-looking exhaust system, is a strong indicator the car could get a proper performance flagship to sit above the 206TSI R-Line. The biggest indicators as to the Arteon's performance potential is the bigger brakes...

Volkswagen Arteon 'Shooting Brake' of interest for Australia

An upcoming wagonised version of the Volkswagen Arteon liftback, which an executive has previously referred to as a 'shooting brake' design, is on the wishlist for the company's Australian arm. The long-roofed Arteon was first referenced in a 2017 interview, when executive Dr Elmar-Marius Licharz revealed that not only was the design of interest, but that plans were underway...

2016-18 Volkswagen Arteon, Passat recalled

Volkswagen has recalled a handful of 2016-18 Passat and Arteon models, over concerns about the panoramic sunroof.  According to the company, certain models with a panoramic sunroof could have a bonded joint that's been installed or repaired with the incorrect primer. That could make the sunroof trim panel detach from the sunroof frame, increasing the risk of accident...
