VW ID.5 TECH PRO: electric range topper with a new look

THERE’S a definite charge under way to get electric cars to the forefront of buyers minds.

Take a look at what’s available and you might be taken aback by the variety of vehicles to choose from, particularly as the market seems to change from month to month.

VOLKSWAGEN TAIGO: stylish addition to the ranks

VOLKSWAGEN TIGUAN LIFE: staycationers may well boost its popularity

THERE’S a good chance that the hugely popular VW Tiguan could see a surge in sales, even during the current restrictive pandemic.

With more and more of us eschewing the sunny destinations of the past in favour of staycations in the UK, leisure vehicles like caravans are being snapped up almost as soon as they arrive on dealer forecourts. Continue reading
