Washington Post carchat May 16, 2014

Good morning Warren and Friends

Sorry about the early stop on the chat last weekend. We all serve at the pleasure of the internet and correct settings. :)

I drove the Golf, GTI, TDI, e-golf, and Golf S with sunroof this week. I also drove the Ford Focus ST, which Volkswagen says is one of its main competitors – that and the Subaru WRX and Honda Civic.

The GTI comes out in June
The TSI comes out in August
The TDI comes out in August
The e-golf comes out in November. There will be a plug-in but the timing has not been announced.
In the first quarter of 2015, the Golf R and SportWagen come out.
There is no confirmation that they are bringing out the GTD in 2017 but there are rumors.
They did confirm the B0-class SUV would be coming to the United States.

There is a launch edition for $17,995 (I believe that does NOT include the $820 destination and handling charge, which for the life of me I can’t understand how they get away with not including that) but check it out – it’s limited and only for 2014.

Let’s chat about cars
