    2022 Toyota GR Corolla

    <Toyota GR Corolla Teased with a Game of I Spy Toyota dropped a teaser on Instagram with tons of hidden clues about the upcoming hot hatch, which is expected to use a 268-hp three-cylinder engine. TOYOTA Toyota teased the upcoming GR Corolla hot hatch with an image shared on Instagram that featured hidden clues detailing the new model. The GR Corolla will be powered by the same turbocharged 1.6-liter three-cylinder engine as the global GR Yaris. The GR Corolla is expected to debut sometime next year and go on sale as a 2022 model in the U.S. Ever since Toyota debuted the GR Yaris hot hatch and said that it wouldn't be sold in the United States, we've been itching for a version of one that we could buy here. After all, Toyota needs something to compete with the likes of the Honda Civic Type R, Volkswagen Golf R, and Hyundai Veloster N. Good thing Toyota isn't leaving us behind, because we're getting a GR Corolla soon. The company just dropped a teaser image on its Instagram account that give some hints of the new raucous hot hatch. WHAT WE EXPECT THE GR COROLLA TO LOOK LIKE. | ILLUSTRATION BY BEN SUMMERELL-YOUDE/FOX SYNDICATION | CAR AND DRIVER Naturally, the users over on the GR Corolla forum were quick to point out all the hints, which are scattered around an image of a standard Corolla's interior like a game of I Spy. GR stands for Gazoo Racing and is used on the Supra and the new GR86 sports car. The time indicated on the gauge cluster is G:16, which refers to the G16E-GTS turbocharged three-cylinder engine that's used in the GR Yaris. The 268-hp output of that powerful engine's Japanese version is found on the climate controls in the teaser image. European versions make 268 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, and the engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. That's not all. There's even a camouflaged GR Corolla hatchback in the background of the image (we tried to zoom in; you can't see much, sadly). There's a GR Four road in the navigation system, which refers to the advanced all-wheel-drive system that has Torsen limited-slip differentials in the front and the rear and an electronically controlled center differential. Look for more details on the new GR Corolla soon, as Toyota is sure to trickle out details about the new hot hatch before its reveal, likely next year, since it released almost all the details on the new Tundra pickup before its official debut.>

    Passat B8

    Hi bros, Starting a thread for Passat B8. Collected my Passat Highline on 30 Dec. Great car to drive. Roomy interior. Any B8 bros here? Cheers
  3. Although the company has still high expectation of the previous years of production, the Volkswagen China has announced that it will be burying the highly-accepted Santana by 2012. The company foresees Santana sales to hit 85,670 this year and will taper down to 62,640 in 2010, 48,440 in 2011 and only 30,440 by 2012. To back this claim it must be noted that the company has produced, since 1983, 3,213,700 Santanas. It is not clear why the company will be doing this, but VW China was still manufacturing an older version of Santana, which is popularly known in other markets as Passat. With many taxi companies utilizing Santana as their cabs, the car surely was totally highly-accepted in this particular market. However, rumors concerning the lack of safety of the vehicle that comes from across China might be the reason behind the German carmaker
  4. This Is The All-New 2020 Volkswagen Golf https://carbuzz.com/news/leaked-this-is-the-all-new-2020-volkswagen-golf 2019 promises to be a landmark year for Volkswagen, with the launch of the brand's first electric I.D. car marking a new era for the German automaker. Equally important for VW is the launch of the next-generation Golf this year. We know production is starting this June, but the only official images VW has released so far are some vague design sketches teasing what the 2020 Golf will look like. But thanks to leaked photos posted by Instagram user johannes.vag, we’re getting an early look at the all-new Golf ahead of its official reveal. The photos allegedly show the eighth-generation VW Golf virtually undisguised outside a McDonald's restaurant while the test driver stopped for lunch. Much like the 2020 Porsche 911, the new Golf’s design changes aren’t very dramatic since Volkswagen understandably doesn't want to mess with a successful formula since the iconic hatchback's inception in 1974. As expected, we’re looking at an evolutionary update compared to the current seventh-generation model. It’s still instantly recognizable as a Golf, but the new model appears to have sharper design lines and slimmer LED lights that match VW’s newer models. It also looks slightly longer and wider than its predecessor. The all-new Golf will be based on an upgraded version of the current model’s MQB platform. As a result, it will be significantly lighter and have a larger wheelbase than the current Golf, so it should offer a more spacious cabin and more trunk space. We’re also expecting the interior to get an overhaul, as well as more safety tech and a semi-autonomous system. Expect a range of turbocharged three- and four-cylinder gasoline and diesel units available at launch, followed by mild-hybrid version and a new next-generation Golf R, which could have as much as 400 hp on tap. With production of the eight-generation Golf starting in June, a reveal at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March seems likely.
  5. Hi Been contemplating getting a VW jetta but quite concerned about how serious the 7 speed DSG problem is. I would say its the only thing stopping me now. VW sales guy said its those ppl who mod (chip) the car. But what i heard from others is even not chipped also have problem. Every 1 or 2 month have to visit workshop. And their after sales is not fantastic either. Anyone here can share?
  6. This video is, as the kids say, very 'happening'. For those confused with what had just happened in the video, let me unpack it for you. We start with the camcar (the Volkswagen Roc driver) driving down Yio Chu Kang road. As the black car in front of him starts to speed, the camcar driver revs his engine and chases his 'friend' in a silly speeding game. As both cars speed down the lane, the drivers try their best to avoid crashing into other vehicles. However, to the camcar's dismay, he crashes into a grey car after entering a bend. Luckily for his 'friend', he manages to squeeze past the car before it changes lanes and avoids a collision. The video ends with several pictures of the blue Volkswagen Scirocco after the crash. Who is at fault here? As evident from the footage of the accident, it is safe to say that the Volkswagen Roc is at fault here. After all, it is common knowledge that street racing is illegal in Singapore. According to the Road Traffic Act, individuals found guilty of street racing will face a punishment of a hefty fine, mandatory imprisonment and forfeiture of the vehicle involved. Following the Tanjong Pagar incident earlier this year, the authorities have introduced a series of amendments to the Road Traffic Act. This includes higher fines and longer jail times for individuals found guilty of street racing in Singapore. First-time offenders will face a maximum fine of $5,000 and up to a year in jail. Repeat offenders will be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for up to two years. Netizens' reactions While I'm not an expert at car insurance, I highly doubt that the insurance company would be willing to pay the Roc driver after they find out about his little game of cat and mouse with his 'friend'. Yep, and they look like this: I thought the video was shot from a third person's perspective as well, it took me a while to realise that it was the Volkswagen driver's POV. 😓 -------------------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    2014 Jetta Brake Servo Failure

    My VW Jetta 2014 model recently have "brake servo failure" with 3 error signs shown (photo). Now this sign came out every time after engine starts. In march 2021 VW Singapore quoted me replacement of ABS/EDL Control Unit for $3,974, of course I refused to do so. Anyone can offer your solution?
  13. https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/new-volkswagen-arteon-shooting-brake-revealed-sketch The Arteon Shooting Brake (right) and refreshed Arteon (left) Volkswagen has revealed its new Arteon Shooting Brake in a sketch ahead of the production model’s full unveiling on 24 June. It will be launched at the same time as an updated version of the model on which it is based, the Arteon fastback, also shown in the drawing. Volkswagen Group design boss Klaus Bischoff said: “With the Arteon Shooting Brake we have created a new balance between speed, power and space.” The introduction of a shooting brake to the Arteon line-up is a bold move from Volkswagen, with many car makers considering whether even saloons are relevant in their line-ups, given the growth in popularity of SUVs. For example, the new Lexus IS saloon isn't destined for Europe or the UK. As well as the new Arteon Shooting Brake and design tweaks for the Arteon fastback, Volkswagen says the line-up receives “comprehensive upgrades… with new high-tech drives and intelligent comfort and assistance systems". The interior will have an entirely new cockpit, including the latest infotainment system promising the “best possible connectivity”. Volkswagen says that all engines “feature high levels of efficiency as well as low emissions and powerful torque. This maximum efficiency is achieved by innovative, future-oriented engine and emissions technologies.” The Arteon will likely be available with the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol and diesel options offered in the saloon, but with added 48V mild-hybrid systems. A hot version from Volkswagen's R division will arrive later, powered by a 329bhp evolution of the familiar EA888 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine. The new Arteon duo will also introduce more intelligent assist systems. Travel Assist is designed with long-distance journeys in mind and will “take over steering, acceleration and braking up to speeds of 130mph under the control of the driver”.
  14. Not many cars can claim a history that spans eight generations, but the Volkswagen Golf has done just that. We look at just what makes the Golf the quintessential hatchback, and how this winning formula has been improved with its latest iteration. Ever since the first Volkswagen Golfs rolled off the production line in 1974, the hatchbacks have always managed to win the hearts of families all around the world, offering an unbeatable combination of high value and practicality which has been slowly improved upon over the years and proven so popular the model name has survived to this present day. And with the first shipment of Golfs here in Singapore already sold out, this latest model already looks set to continue on the success of its predecessors. We look at how Volkswagen has once again improved on the Golf’s winning formula, and why it continues to be so popular here. As practical as ever, despite the sleeker look With the current eighth generation Golf, Volkswagen has improved on the exterior design of the new Golf, giving it a sleeker and visually lowered design. However, that has not compromised on the Golf’s long-standing reputation for being a practical hatchback. The new model leaves shoulder and headroom unchanged for all passengers, making it still the practical hatch for anyone or any occasion. And should those passengers need to ferry extra luggage, a 380-litre sized boot stands at the ready, expanding to a generous 1,237-litres if you fold the rear seats flat. But there are other practical improvements with the new Golf beyond just space. The new model has been shaped for increased aerodynamic efficiency, for example, and also gets increased underbody paneling. These improvements aid to cut its drag coefficient from the 0.3Cd of the previous model to 0.275Cd. This means you not only save fuel when driving on the highway, but also get to enjoy a quieter drive while doing so. More opportunity for individualisation, despite being so popular While many here in Singapore may already have secured their next Golf, that does not mean you can’t stand out from the crowd if you’re thinking about buying one yourself! To start with, there are three different variants available here, so you can add as much sporty character as you’d like. Opt for the Life or Life plus if you’re looking for something discreet, while the R-Line will surely cater to those looking for something more aggressive, thanks to its lowered ride height and those touch and slider controls in the cabin. And the scope for personalization expands further once you step inside, thanks to the Golf’s new MIB.3 modular infotainment matrix. The new system allows you to save your favourite settings for items including the air-conditioning, seating position, and exterior mirrors, so you always have your car just how you like it. Better yet is the fact that you get up to 30 ambient lighting options to choose from, so you can always set the mood up in your Golf as you deem fit. And if that sounds like too much to choose from, then simply pick from Volkswagen’s pre-configured options, all selectable from a cool ‘mood menu’! Digital and connected, despite being so familiar Speaking of MIB.3, the cabin of the Volkswagen Golf has also been reinvented, ensuring that it continues to keep with the new demands for connectedness in today’s digital age while still staying fundamentally familiar to those looking to upgrade from the previous iterations. With the new Mk8 Golf, you get all the intuitive controls and switchgear, assembled up to Volkswagen’s familiar high build quality, but the cabin now gets the firm’s 10-inch discover pro infotainment system or 8.25-inch composition system and 10.25-inch digital drivers display, designed to be as intuitive to operate as any smartphone. New features such as voice recognition and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, also further add to the ease of use of the Golf’s newfound connected systems. Embracing the future, while being down to earth It’s not all just show though, for under the bonnet, the Golf also gets new powerplants that now utilise a host of technologies to improve efficiency. Here in Singapore, we are getting our Golfs with a 1.5-litre engine equipped with a 48V mild-hybrid system, allowing easy access to the benefits of electrification without any of the hassle of a fully-electrified vehicle. The new engine also comes with Active cylinder technology, which shuts down two of the engine’s four cylinders when they are not needed in a seamless, interruption-free manner, ensuring that fuel consumption is kept to a minimum without any disruption to your driving pleasure. Want to get behind the wheel of the new Volkswagen Golf? Head on down to the Volkswagen showroom at 247 Alexandra Road, or arrange for a roaming test drive here to experience the latest generation of the world’s most iconic hatchback.

  16. Simi dieselgate? Huat ah! https://www.autoblog.com/2021/07/29/vw-porsche-audi-earnings-record-sales/
  17. Volkswagen, BMW fined $1 billion for colluding to make dirtier cars. https://www.theverge.com/2021/7/8/22568356/volkswagen-bmw-daimler-emissions-cartel-fine-audi-porsche-eu "Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler spent years illegally colluding to slow the deployment of cleaner emissions technology, says the European Union, which is dishing out fines as a result.... ...The scheme described by EU authorities is separate from the Volkswagen Group’s massive Dieselgate scandal, in which the company installed software on its diesel vehicles that helped fool environmental regulators into believing they were compliant, when in reality, they were polluting far more than the legal limit. Dieselgate ultimately led to nearly $40 billion in fines, buybacks, and legal fees for the Volkswagen Group. Daimler also installed software on some of its diesel vehicles to cheat emissions tests and has paid billions of dollars in fines. BMW was careful to point out Thursday that, unlike the other companies it was caught colluding with, it had not cheated emissions testing."

    2021 Volkswagen ID.6

    @Ct3833 this one OK for you? Everything look good except for the lack of sliding rear doors.
  19. Now, forgive me if I'm not making sense here, but isn't it common sense to go a little slower in underground car parks, where the road is a little slippery and it makes your tyres screech like a banshee at every 90 degree corner you have to make a turn at. Especially at the exits and entry lanes, where the road is narrow and there are humps every few metres to deliberately keep your speed low. So, please tell me how an accident like this could happen, as per the video below.This accident happened yesterday, and this video is actually taken by me as I witnessed the aftermath of the accident as I was leaving IKEA Alexandra around 4pm. According to a friend who left earlier than I did, this accident definitely happened before 3.35pm, and Singaporeans being Singaporeans, it obviously did cause a bit of a wait to leave the car park because everyone was slowing down to gawk at the accident and possibly to take down the licence plate numbers to... buy... 4D..... (why, people, why? That's just schadenfreude) So as you can see from the video, the Volvo somehow managed to hit both Volkswagens (2-for-1), the first car being clipped in the right rear quarter while the second car, was, well, kissed pretty hard in the front. From what can be seen of the Volvo, it doesn't look too good for it either. The front left wheel seems to be partially dislodged and who knows what's going on with what isn't visible to the camera. Fortunately for the Volvo driver, in spite of their inability to drive properly in a car park, Volvo has invested tons of money into making their cars really safe, as seen here, here, here and here. Unfortunately, I don't think Volvo has figured out a way to account for a less-than-attentive/capable driver who can't concentrate in a narrow car park and ends up causing a proper headache for everyone involved. All in, the damage to all three cars look to be pretty bad. But the only thing worst than this accident was the line of cars along Alexandra Road that couldn't enter the IKEA carpark because this accident had basically blocked off the only way to get down into the car park. I didn't get footage of that, but I don't envy the IKEA staff member who was standing in the hot sun explaining to irate drivers why they couldn't enter the car park. Here's hoping that guy didn't have it too bad, because we all know how Singaporeans can get if they aren't queuing for something they enjoy, like bubble tea or bakkwa. An ambulance was seen arriving just as I was leaving, so here's hoping that if anyone was injured, their injuries were minor, and let's all practice safe and attentive driving not only while on the roads, but in car parks as well. Especially on Sundays at IKEA, because there are waaaaaay too many people there already and the last thing we all need is for someone to lose their temper over something trivial.

    Uh oh, more bad rep for Scirocco owners here

    The Volkswagen Sciroccos in Singapore have been getting lots of bad press recently. And it is not getting any better with this video that was created this morning. SG Road Vigilante has reported a video that was posted by a Scirocco's rear passenger showing the driver driving above the 90km/h speed limit of expressways in Singapore. In the video, we can see the car going past 180km/h on the speedometer while it entered into CTE after passing the BMW Z4 and Mitsubishi Lancer in front. We hope they did reach home safely after going along at such high speeds.

    2020 Volkswagen T Cross

    Just saw the T cross launched at the SG Motorshow. Anyone considering / shortlisting the Volkswagen T cross for their next car? Though it's on the Polo platform but reviews are claiming it's interior space is pretty decent! Wanted to hear opinions and gather pple who are considering this model as well! https://youtu.be/SELq4bRaUCc
  22. Looking for something different in your sub-compact crossover? Lucky you, we are looking at the Volkswagen T-Cross in this video review! We take a look at the aggressive furnishes the T-Cross is graced with thanks to the fact that all cars here are the R-line variant! And the crossover also get some interesting touches at the rear, including its centrally-mounted badging, the new Volkswagen logo, as well as those taillights that run across the width of the car! Watch the full video to see what's what! This T-Cross also has a sliding rear bench, which means that passenger space can be sacrificed if you need more boot space. Talk about practical! And what about on the go? Once again I'm gonna leave you with this simple teaser... Watch the full video to see how the T-Cross fairs in our latest video review!
  23. Bored because you can't travel? Why not challenge your friends to a drag race and get fined under the Road Traffic Act? On 18th January, as seen on SG Road Vigilante, a group of approximately eight people were at this illegal drag race. Seems like there were five spectators, two racers and one starter. It wasn't a very fair race because the starter's hand was blocking the Volkswagen Scirocco. It started later than the Mitsubishi Lancer, who saw a golden opportunity (his view not blocked by the starter) and raced ahead. Where's the sportsmanship, brother? Though, if you ask me, I think this race wasn't about speed. The race track was short, and the cars were driving carefully. Yknow why? Cuz' slow and steady wins the race. Some Facebook users were hypothesizing other reasons for the gathering, while others bashed them for their apparent drag racing. Whatever it is, the uploader shouldn't have bao toh (read: sabotage) his friends. Actually, come to think of it, who was videoing this? Weren't there already eight people in the frame? Or also +1 cameraman? Edit: Added in the original video source https://www.facebook.com/groups/sgroadshallofshame/permalink/1927162840764549/ for easier reference – leaving it to you guys to decide what this 'drag race' really is.
