After Losing To The Fusion, The Ford Mustang Now Gets Laughed Out Of The Room By A VW Jetta!

After Losing To The Fusion, The Ford Mustang Now Gets Laughed Out Of The Room By A VW Jetta!

Over 100 horses fewer, but the Volkswagen Jetta still manages to beat the Ford Mustang

Sam from ‘Sam CarLegion’ uploaded yet another video of a drag race on YouTube, this time involving a Volkswagen Jetta and a Ford Mustang. Remember how the Mustang lost to the Fusion a few days back? Well, it seemed like retribution of sorts for the Mustang, but it didn’t go how the muscle car would’ve liked.

While both of them feature a four-pot turbocharged engine under the hood, the Mustang makes over 100 horsepower more than the Jetta. Also, the American muscle is a rear-wheel-drive model whereas the German sedan comes with a front-wheel-drive system. Despite everything going in favor of the Mustang, it lost to the Jetta when it came to real-world performance. Shocking, huh?

The Volkswagen Aero B EV Has Been Spotted Yet Again

The Volkswagen Aero B EV Has Been Spotted Yet Again

Does the latest sighting hint that Volkswagen is ready to make the big debut?

We last saw that Volkswagen Aero B back in November of 2021, looking like what could be a replacement for the Passat sedan, despite evidence to the contrary. These latest spy shots don’t reveal anything new, but it does seem to verify our previous suspicion that it is, in fact, a five-door liftback. This time around, the car was caught testing in Sweden, taking advantage of the cold weather there. It still features the same deceptive camouflage, but we know it’ll take inspiration from the 2019 ID Space Vizzion concept.

As of now, it’s believed that Volkswagen will offer the Aero B in two different body styles. The liftback sedan being one of them, and the other, potentially being a low-riding crossover of sorts. It will be the electric equivalent of the gas-powered Passat and will ride on VW’s MEB platform, which means it will be available with rear- or all-wheel drive. A GTX version of the Aero B will launch within a year or two after the base model, but basic performance and range is still a well-kept secret. Slide on down the page to see the latest images of the Volkswagen Aero B.

2022 Volkswagen Taos

2022 Volkswagen Taos

A long-awaited entry of a budget compact crossover from VAG but does it live up to the hype it created?

Being the most compact VW SUV you can buy right now, we are genuinely surprised by how good the Taos is. While the Tiguan was the most compact till now, the Taos, being the smallest, is surprisingly comfy in the rear which, in our opinion, is quite rare in this segment. It is decently powerful, packs a good amount of cabin and driver assistance features while holding a cheap price tag of $22,995. So, what do you get for that price?

Watch A Tuned Volkswagen Jetta Go Head-To-Head Against A Ford Mustang GT

The Jetta is a lot lighter than the Mustang and makes almost the same power, but it has an FWD layout – Who will win?

Volkswagen Aero B Caught Looking Like a Passat-Arteon Mashup

Volkswagen Aero B Caught Looking Like a Passat-Arteon Mashup

This isn’t a Passat, nor is it a replacement. In fact, it may not even be a sedan at all

The Volkswagen Passat isn’t as dead as the media would lead you to believe, and the Aero B – a Passat-sized EV – isn’t going to replace it right away. In fact, the ICE-powered Passat will see one more generational shift that should keep it on the market, at least in some places, until the end of the decade. At that point, it will probably be replaced by the second-generation Aero B, but that’s still 8 years from now and we’re getting ahead of ourselves, so let’s take a look at these new spy shots of the Volkswagen Aero B.
