Big cars are big in the US. VW is at the New York International Auto Show with a five-seat version of the Atlas, while Audi wants impress with the new RS5 Sportback, and Toyota presents the RAV4.
The North American International Auto Show kicks off this week. Largely shunned by European carmakers, the expo will be a concentration of American might. It may also be the end of an era.
The North American International Auto Show is still the biggest and premier auto show in North America. But, this year, only one German carmaker bothered to show up. Maya Shwayder reports from Detroit.
German carmaker Volkswagen has reported record global sales in 2017 after being dogged by the costly emissions cheating scandal. VW made the announcement as it unveiled an updated Jetta model at the Detroit Auto Show.
Despite the Dieselgate emissions scandal, the German carmaker says it sold a record number of vehicles last year. But VW's growth in Western Europe was more sluggish than in the rest of the world.
