    Let the sunshine in! The panoramic sunroof is a re-interpretation of the legendary folding soft top

    The days are growing shorter, the leaves are changing colour, and fall is making its appearance. Despite the season, a lot of Volkswagens are still bright as in summer. There is a tradition here. Ever since the company's early years, intelligent roof systems have been capturing the light of the sun even in wintertime. As early as in 1950, Volkswagen began to offer the Beetle with a folding sunroof. In the mid-1990s, this roof concept was refined in the Lupo and Polo with electrically actuated versions. Today, transparent panoramic sunroofs are experiencing a boom. They are available for all Volkswagen models – from the small up! and new Polo to the large Touareg and new Arteon.

"Wolfsburg is ahead of Munich" – Sightseeing with Katharina Baunach and the new Polo

Katharina Baunach lived in Munich for eleven years, playing soccer for FC Bayern. During that time, the 28-year old became a two-time German champion and won the DFB cup. For this new season, the defense player came to Wolfsburg and signed a contract with VfL. Why? According to Katharina it's because, "Wolfsburg is ahead of Munich." Does this solely refer to sports, or the city as well? Katharina was eager to find out and took a tour of Wolfsburg in the new Polo, accompanied by her new team mate, Zsanett Jakabfi, who has been living and playing in Wolfsburg since 2009.
