Future Jetta, G-Class Interior & Toyota Milestone
December 14, 2017
The calendar is changing to 2018 soon, but car makers are already giving us a glimpse of what 2019 will look like. That includes Volkswagen. The company has released sketches of the all-new 2019 Jetta. MotorWeek will see it in person during the debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month.
Mercedes-Benz is taking us inside the new G-Class. The rugged off-roader gets an updated interior. The instrument panel has been redesigned, but G-Class fans will still recognize the tube-look analogue dials which are standard. A more modern option is similar to the wide screen cockpit seen in the E-Class and S-Class sedans. Two 12.3-inch displays blend seamlessly under a shared glass cover showing a virtual instrument panel and central display. Mercedes-Benz is holding on to classic G-Class elements as well, like the grab handle in front of the front passenger.
Toyota is celebrating a milestone. The one millionth Toyota Corolla rolled off the line at the plant in Blue Springs, Mississippi. The first Corolla was built there in 2011, but the Japanese company has been operating in the Magnolia State for a decade.
