DETROIT – Volkswagen has taken the wraps off an all-new version of its compact Tiguan compact crossover. The popular little truck was introduced to the American market for the 2008 model year and hasn’t seen much change since then.
According to the National Weather Service, 39 U.S. states saw more than ten inches of snow least year. Now, that snow isn’t especially well dispersed across each state. Here in Illinois, snowfall totals up near Chicago are far higher than they are down near St. Louis, but it’s a safe bet most Illinoisans have at least a passing familiarity with the white stuff.
Today, most wagons are luxury-brand wagons. By our count, there’s just one non-luxury, non-crossover wagon available for sale in the U.S., and that’s the Volkswagen Jetta.

Perhaps because it’s the first major auto show of the season (and perhaps because it’s set, of course, in California – the tail that wags the fashion dog), the Los Angeles Auto Show often establishes trends later followed at the other major shows.
LOS ANGELES—Though it was officially unveiled at the end of October, Volkswagen’s all-new midsize SUV just made its U.S. auto-show debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Socially and culturally, 1986 was a pretty big year. It was the year that the space shuttle Challenger was lost, and the year Pixar Animation Studios was formed. Microsoft stock was first sold to the public in 1986, and The Oprah Winfrey Show made its syndication debut.
Frankly, it’s a bit surprising it’s taken Volkswagen this long.
