Volkswagen has unveiled its Golf GTE – a new plug-in hybrid version of the multi-award-winning Golf hatchback that combines the benefits of electric mobility with the dynamics of a Golf GTI.
The Golf GTE made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show this week. It provides the fifth variety of drive type for the Golf, which is now available with petrol, diesel, natural gas (not in Ireland), electric (e-Golf arriving here soon), and hybrid power.
First off I accept the Renault Twingo has never meant much to Irish motorists. However, two decades after it revolutionised the small car segment with the first-generation Twingo, Renault has taken a fresh look at its city car.
The brand’s engineers and designers started from a blank sheet of paper and took their inspiration from the legacy left by the original Twingo and the Renault 5. The result is a new, innovative and agile car that Renault says is great fun to drive.
The 2014 edition of Motorshow Car Buyers' Guide is in the shops now. It’s packed with all the knowledge that new car buyers need. This premium annual publication assists buyers with no nonsense verdicts on every new car. It also has all the details of over a hundred new cars on the way. Safety too is a major priority, so the results of every new car ever crash tested in Europe are included.
The ‘Worth Waiting For’ section in Motorshow 2014 aims to give the new car buying public all the up-to-date necessary information required when shopping for a new car, including the definitive list of new cars coming to the Irish market over the next year or so. Car sales people should note that the level of research means that readers will learn of many new models on the way, in fact many that dealerships will not have heard of at this time.
