How fast is the Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak?

When we say that Volkswagen is setting out to beat a record, we don’t mean the brand is merely competing. If VW sets a goal, the brand puts its full effort into achieving it. So with Volkswagen throwing its hat into the ring for the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, a race it normally doesn’t compete in, there are certainly plenty of enthusiasts keeping an eye out. The Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak is a model that is specifically designed for this hill climb, and the goal is to beat the current record held by Rhys Millen of 8.57.118 seconds. So how fast is the Volkswagen I.D. R Pikes Peak? Keeping in mind that speeds are tested on a flat track, the model is timed at 0-60 in 2.25 seconds. For perspective, Formula One race cars average 2.1-2.7 seconds. Read the rest of this entry »

First look at the Atlas Cross Sport Concept Model at NYIAS 2018

2019 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport release

Change is inevitable in any industry and for any brand. Volkswagen went some time without wholeheartedly entering into the larger automotive segments. It’s true that the brand did have the original Tiguan and the Touareg, which were popular for those seeking upscale options, but not quite as competitive as they could be. This has changed with the introduction of the longer wheelbase 2018 VW Tiguan and the brand new 2018 Volkswagen Atlas. The Tiguan Limited is on its way out and the Touareg is already gone, so does this leave a gap in the SUV options? Not with the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport release announced for next model year. Read the rest of this entry »

Tire Pressure Monitoring System on Volkswagen

The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) in your Volkswagen may warn you if your tires are under or over inflated, helping increase your fuel economy and even potentially preventing a tire blowout. Poorly inflated tires are prone to blowouts and may make it more difficult to brake or steer. Some versions of this feature can also detect over-inflation. Both under and over inflation will affect the life of your tires and your car’s gas mileage. See what to do if this system comes on below!
