      There's no question people want it (especially enthusiasts). I think the problem has always been one of cost versus benefit. Since AWD is now a done deal and is definitely coming here, and the TDI is...

      We are a culture of convenience. Most of average folks love the idea of a set it and forget it appliance. No one wants to have to constantly fiddle with things or settings or always be readjusting....

      I don't profess to be an expert, so someone else can eventually chime in on this, but I believe largely you're right. Winter tires can often help significantly if your issue is simply traction in...

      I was not aware of that and to be honest, I'm surprised they're ok with it given how soundly they generally seem to enjoy panning things that come with "primitive" suspension (especially if they come...

      Supposedly the whole AdBlue beam suspension mess is because the TDI engine originally never required the fluid (and was designed to run without it), but increasingly strict regulations (and possibly...

      Subscribed on the off chance that this happens. My only reservation is that my hatch opens high enough to hit the garage door (when it's open and in the stored overhead position), which isn't a...

      I think it's fantastic that Jamie is fighting for the R Variant. I've held onto the belief that the appeal and practicality of the wagon form factor are high enough and the pickings are slim enough...

      I'm sure that, at the least, VW is keeping a watchful eye on how things pan out. As has been already stated, if they produce the Alltrack and Golf R hatchback in Puebla, it would be a really simple...

      I love the idea of it and the thought of owning one and if they do release one here, it will immediately move to the top of my list and usurp the Golf Alltrack (currently occupying the top spot). Now...

      It does look awful, but as has already been stated, Subarus don't sell for their looks. Still, I'm not sure I could get past the odd look of it. I really like the Levorg (even though it has a...

      Each company has its own unique atmosphere and culture that is singular to that particular organization. Some foster creativity and innovation, while others are cutthroat, dog-eat-dog places where...

      I largely agree and I think that honestly, Acura doesn't make bad cars. Anyone who has been in one will tell you they're competitive, but what Acura has is an image problem. Badge prestige,...

      Or at least a Matrix or something. I can respect Toyota for attempting to inject a bit of excitement into their lineup, but rebranding a mildly tweaked Auris just doesn't strike me as the right path....

      Time to start saving my pennies. :D
      I don't know how likely it is, but I hope it gets the 2.0T instead of the 1.8T. Though I suppose a TDI isn't a terrible choice. ;)

      If they were clever, Audi would price this to directly compete with the CLA. Model for model, just line up the engine specs and trim levels to match the CLA and see how it flies. In the trim/spec...

      Not a huge fan of a standard torque converter automatic either, but that being said I agree that it's fine for average consumer types. My cousin hardly notices that the transmission is different from...

      The Crosstrek certainly isn't, but the new Outback is a very nice place to be (from what I've heard) and VW's tend to have much nicer interiors than their price/class/entry point suggests. It's one...

      I agree with this wholeheartedly. There's definitely an untapped market in our country for a premium all-wheel drive wagon/crossover. Currently Subaru has that niche pretty much all to itself and...

      The 5 door hardtop looks a bit funny to me. Maybe I'm just too accustomed to the 3 door, but those extra doors seem to throw all the proportions a bit off. I'm sure I'll get used to it as I see them...
