CLIFF LEPPKE'S CYBER SEAT
VW Atlas Weekend Edition Unveiled at 2017 Chicago Auto Show
2017 Audi A4 Nabs a MotorWeek Drivers' Choice Award
Best decoration of an unsightly McCormick Place pillar goes to the 2018 VW Atlas Weekend Edition’s campsite. Playing with the vehicle’s go-anywhere design, the Atlas showplace sports a campfire, benches, trees and earth-like flooring. A woodsy campground sign directs you to the Kurkuma yellow metallic vehicle--as in yellow-yellow saffron.
The Weekender integrates accessories such as a rooftop carrier, pet barrier and tablet mounts. The latter means touchscreen adventures for the Atlas SEL VR6’s traveling companions. Is auto bingo next?
At the Chicago show press conference, MotorWeek's John Davis said Audi's A4 Won PBS show's Drivers Choice Award: Best Sport Sedan.
New for the 2017 model year, the front-drive A4 features a "B" cycle 2.0-liter "right-size" engine that increases fuel economy and torque. A revised combustion chamber and Audi's valvelift technology are part of the "B" cycle recipe that improves efficiency, yet is satsifying to drive.
