If you find
yourself hoping right now that someone at Volkswagen
was a big enough fan of
Carlos Santana that they named a car after him, you aren't alone.
Unfortunately, the name is just a coincidence. The Santana is a
second-generation Volkswagen Passat
, which lived on much longer in South
America than it did in most markets, and even longer still in China. Only a few
automotive platforms have lasted longer than this. And most of them are also Volkswagens.
