2020 VW Golf

Although these are not official pictures yet, this is the all new 2020 VW Golf.
As predicted, looking about 95% like the current car.

Except for that futuristic interior.
Which does look pretty great.
Although it almost seems out of place in such a conservative exterior design.

Not much os known about the all new generation Golf. Except tit is not coming to the US.
As we will only get the GTI version (better than nothing...)

Much more on this very soon...

2021 VW ID.4

While we are not getting the cute ID.3 hatchback in the US, VW will be selling us the upcoming ID.4 Crossover.
Which will be slightly larger than the ID. And based on the exact same platform.

The photo on top is a pretty realistic illustration of what to expect.
Since it matches very closely the covered car VW showed at the Frankfurt Auto show a few weeks ago (middle pic) and prototypes of the real things (bottom)

At least, this is already looking pretty nice and really modern. Something VWs have not been for a long time.
And much nicer than the Tiguan or Atlas.

The main problem for VW will be to convince US buyers to trust them.
Not only because of the obvious Dieselgate nightmare. But also due to decades of poor reliability ratings.
Due mostly too...electrical/electronic problems.

VW Lamando = 2017 VW Jetta?

There is a new rumor about the next VW Jetta.
Apparently, it could be very similar to the recently introduced Lamando.
The Lamando is, so far, a model sold only in China.
But China and the US already share the larger "non German" Passat.
So why not the Jetta (Which doesn't sell well in Europe anyway)

The Lamando does look like a next generation Jetta.
And the timing could be right. If introduced a bit over a year from now, it could be a 2017 Model.

Even though it does look more modern than the current Jetta. By then it will have to compete with cars like the all new Civic, Cruze etc...
So no matter what, the Jetta will stay a very conservative choice.
