Debuted in 1989 as the car we'd be driving in the year 2000 by
Volkswagen, it wasn’t that far off. Well about 10 years, bear with me. This was
effectively a people carrier; it had an LCD screen to give the driver
information, a 1.7ltr petrol engine that was a frugal as the conventional
diesel due to its direct injection, catalytic convertor, 4 wheel steering, lane
and hazard proximity sensors!!!! All these are available as either standard
equipment or options on most new cars these days. Its party piece thought way
automatic parking using that 4 wheel steering system to crab into a space.
It was even on Tomorrows World showing to show it off-
So it wasn’t 10 years ahead of the time, but 20 years ahead of the time.
