AutoComplete: Volkswagen's 2018 Golf refresh is heavy on the techPlus, Nissan builds a concept for dogs, and Lexus creates a luxury sedan for sportier drivers.
Here's what's making news on Road Show. Volkswagen has some big updates in store for its entire 2018 Golf family. The changes are too numerous to spell out here but each variant promises an updated exterior, larger touch screens inside and on the Golf RN e-Golf, a digital display that replaces the gauge cluster. Most mid-level golf trims feature standard autonomous emergency braking, too. The models go on sale later this year. Nissan's latest puts dogs first. The Rogue Dogue concept transforms the 2017 Rogue's cargo area into a puppy palace. It features a dog wash sprayer, containers for food and water and a ramp for easy access, along with a second row pass-through, that makes for easy access to the rear windows. Speaking of windows, a rear-facing camera is designed to capture your dog's head out the window excitement. The Lexus LS has never been the sportiest car on the block, but this new generation's F Sport trim may help to rectify that. Both the LS500 and the LS500h hybrid can be optioned with a more aggressive exterior, coupled with cabin that offers sportier seats and an ultra suede headliner. Non hybrid models also add variable ratio steering, a sharper air Suspension system and real axle steering as part of the handling package. Like everything else in today's auto complete, the LS-F Sport debuts at this week's New York Auto Show. Find more on these stories over at theroadshow.com, we'll talk to you tomorrow
