      On my 2010 Golf TDI the DSG version gets +1 mpg better than the manual (42 mpg vs 41 mpg) and with the 2014 both the DSG and manual were the same at 42 mpg.

      Is this the first we've seen Highway fuel economy figures revealed for the Golf TDI? Previously they only mentioned City and Combined as having a 1 mpg improvement. It looks like a 3 mpg improvement...

      That's the problem. We are in the market for one but don't want to miss the limited window to order a 2014 with the Premium Package holding out for a 2015 in hopes the Premium Package will continue...

      If VW shows off a Sportwagen TDI with AWD that means we'll get only one of two things:

      Sportwagen with TDI
      Sportwagen AWD without TDI

      That's how it works with them. They take away the combo...

      The Premium Package is only available for the 2014 models, correct?

      I wonder how these will compare with the 2015 Beetle which is due in the second half of this year? The 2015 will have better fuel economy across the board but I wonder about the packages. I imagine...

      Is this the same thing? There is still a spare present.

      You must not do a lot of state to state or cross country driving then. Having a larger tank sure does help on long stretches of interstate where stations may be few and far between. Also, you don't...

      I believe it's because the EU versions do not have reflectors built in and that is required for DOT approval. So it's more about having to build two versions of them rather than the cost of DOT...

      It will probably be standard on the e-Golf and hybrid, maybe an option on the R and GTI. It should be an option on the rest but I get the feeling it won't be. The standard navigation is mentioned...

      Never!

      I don't see how hybrids play into it other than maybe a general prejudice against diesels but we're comparing two diesels here. The Chevy Cruze diesel is rated at 46 hwy while the Golf looks to be...

      While one can get more real-world mpg out of a diesel it's still not good when a Chevy Cruze Diesel is rated at 46 mpg with a plain old automatic and the mkVII Golf TDI only manages 42 with a manual...

      Don't worry we are complaining about those as well. :laugh: It's just that LED tail lights should be part of the optional Lighting Package. It doesn't make sense to have Xenon headlights with LED...

      I believe the Discover Pro will be standard on the e-Golf so I imagine we may not see it as an option until after that. I suspect that even then it will only be an option on the GTI and eventual...

      It's sad to see the suspension jacked up on the TDI like that. For the mkVI it came with a mild sport suspension with vehicle lowering and I thought part of the reason for that was to improve fuel...

      The problem is that VW still thinks things like LED tails are some super exotic futuristic technology and really they are par for the course these days. I've seen them on far cheaper cars than the...
