The 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan Hits The Street With New Technology and Revised Looks
You’re Going To Like the New Volkswagen ID5 More Than the ID4
Volkswagen recently announced the ID.4 GTX. With it, the German brand announced the beginning of its sporty EV lineup.

The Volkswagen Golf May Only Have One Generation Left Before Retirement
When Volkswagen introduced the new 2020 Mk.8 Golf, we got to feast eyes on the Golf GTI, GTD, and GTE, a blend of trims that pretty much covered every desire imaginable. Later we got to lay eyes on the 2021 VW Golf R and Golf GTI Clubsport.

So, which model will we see next?
2022 Volkswagen ID.4 GTX

The EV comes with significant performance upgrades over the standard model and also comes with some aesthetic changes. An additional motor, enhanced power outputs, and new headlight detailing are some of the differences here. The performance, however, comes at the cost of the range since Volkswagen has made use of the same battery pack as the standard ID.4. What is more important to you?
