AutoComplete: The 2017 Jeep Compass bids farewell to the PatriotPlus: Volkswagen debuts a refreshed E-Golf, and Acura's Precision Cockpit concept is all about the screens.
Today is November 17th and here's what's making news on Road Show. The last Jeep Compass was underwhelming, this one hopes to change the history books replacing both the old Compass and the Patriot, this new SUV packs a 2.4 liter four cylinder engine made into the buyer's choice of an automatic or manual transmission. There's also a new Trailhawk model which promises more off-road capability than before. Look forward to seeing it in a mall parking lot near you. Last week, Volkswagen debuted the refreshed seventh generation Golf. Today, it's updated the all electric E-Golf as well. Thanks to a larger battery, the range is up from 83 miles to 124. Power is up as well, as is top speed. It also carries the updates from the other Golf variants, including a display that replacing the guage cluster, and a larger infotainment screen with chester control. Acura is giving a look into the future of this interior tech and things are looking pretty good. The precision concept shows a whole lot of NSX inspiration, including that big old mode dial, smack dab in the middle of the dashboard. There are two 12.3 inch screens that can display a multitude of information, and artificial intelligence can track and predict the path of obstacles in front of the vehicle. The general look and feel of its infotainment system should be rolling out to new Acura models within the next few years. Find more on these stories over at theroadshow.com.
