Volkswagen: What’s new for 2017

2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack

2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack

Volkswagen’s been in damage control since the revelation in late 2015 of its diesel emissions cheating, and that’s meant we’ve seen little in the way of new products from the brand.

That will start to change come the 2018 model year with new additions like the Atlas as well as an updated Golf and redesigned Tiguan and Touareg all due.

Sadly, that means there’s little in the way of exciting new products for those in the market to buy a car today.
