The Golf Cabriolet is one of the most successful open-top cars on the German market and one of the most popular of its kind in Europe. At the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA), Volkswagen is presenting a visually extensive update of the four-seater soft-top best seller.
The changes are easy to identify by the considerably sportier front bumper, the striking side sills and sporty accents on the rear bumper. Moreover, the convertible can now be configured even more individually. Besides six new exterior colors, there is an additional soft-top color and six new wheel designs. In the interior, there is a new generation of steering wheels and new trim elements as well as new designs for the cloth and leather seats.
Skoda is set to add to its acclaimed GreenLine range with its most advanced and efficient model to date: the new Superb GreenLine. The latest addition to the recently-launched Superb range takes fuel economy and emissions to a new level, with a predicted combined consumption figure of 76.4mpg and CO2 emissions of just 96g/km for the Hatch and 97g/km for the Estate. These provide the new Superb GreenLine with a potential range of more than 1,100 miles on just one tank of fuel– comfortably enough to drive from Milton Keynes to Barcelona.
The new Superb GreenLine will be unveiled to the public at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show. The newcomer – which is the most fuel-efficient and cleanest Superb ever built – is powered by a 1.6-litre 4-cylinder diesel engine that develops 120PS and incorporates a host of advanced fuel-saving technologies and engineering features. As with all other Superb models, the GreenLine is equipped with start-stop ignition and brake energy recovery as standard. In addition, both Superb GreenLine models feature longer gear ratios, SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) and 16-inch reduced rolling resistance tyres.

When it comes to minivans, 7-seaters and hybrids, one might think that there are three different types of people that buy these different cars. Well Toyota has decided that even if there were three different types of buyers for those cars, only one car is required to fit in all three segments and appeal to them all. Enter the Voxy, a do it all MPV, minivan, 7-seater and yes; hybrid car. If a product is so many things, it must be pretty darn jam packed with goodies.
