That moment when the most expensive VW has the infotainment of the least expensive VW, the VW UP! In addition to the UP (and its Seat/Skoda siblings) this Garmin unit was also used for the Seat Ibiza 6J2.

Dude, check your math... 0.9L/100km = 235mpg (not 260, but close enough). Now, if you have a car doing a claimed 260 miles per gallon and stick a claimed 2.5 gallon tank (in reality 2.4) to it, what's the total range again? Right, "250 miles"... Says so without triggering any internal BS alarms, hm...

Development for this must have been so expensive they've probably lost a ton of money for every car sold even at that price. It's a shame they've wasted that cool tech and ideas that could have become a much cheaper everyday car with incredible mileage. A cool ultra-Prius from VW could have started a planet-saving trend before Tesla made it cool, maybe. Too bad those idiots chose to cheat emission tests and destroy the brand's reputation.

I never seen or even heard of it - and I live in Germany. But with this kind of price its not surprising. Also because VW built a super economic car already 20 years ago: the 3litre Polo. That was a proper VW Polo with a small engine, that would use around 3 litres (Diesel I think) for 100km. So not far off the figures of this 100,000 Euro car, for perhaps a fifth of the price. But strangely enough the 3l Polo production was stopped after a few years.

I adore this car and I always thought it was hilarious that the infotainment was the exact same one that came with my VW UP! (A very small citycar hatchback). All the options were the same, instant MPG, ThinkBlue trainer, extra gauges if you wanted them like RPM or coolant temperature. The only difference I can see is the Artwork of the vehicle & the hybrid system screen. A little trivia is that you can unmount the Garmin screen and take it with you just like a radio facia from back in the day. Also, it has the most horrendous touchscreen for entering information imaginable, the thing should come with a stylus and I'm not even joking.
