Does it mean that people will consider Tiguan as a more classy option (compared to cheap SUVs) and will buy it more and that's the way it increases VW's income?

What does the phrase " helps the company’s bottom line " mean here?

It seems buyers after cheap FWD family SUVs don’t see Volkswagen as their brand of choice, which no doubt helps the company’s bottom line, if not its throughput.

Does it mean that don't seeing VW as their brand of choice have a negative effect on VW sales?

What does the phrase " make up to 25 percent of the company’s vehicle parts by weight " mean here?

The new 980-megapascal ultrahigh tensile strength steel is part of Nissan’s plan to reduce the CO2 emissions of its new vehicles by 40 percent by the year 2022, compared to 2000. The automaker aims for the steel to make up to 25 percent of the company’s vehicle parts by weight. In the new QX50, for example, it makes up 27 percent of the construction.

Does it mean that this new steel constitute 25 percent of the weight of the vehicle parts?

I also thought it means what you said but if it refers to a very advanced engine why it uses BUT after that?
We usually use BUT to write an opposing sentence to what has just been said about something.

This sentence is not very meaningfull:

The engine is so advanced that it can't be better than this in the future BUT it was an award-winner in its period of being a successful engine.

When after BUT we use a positive sentence, there should be a negative sentence before it and vice versa.

- BUT +

or

+ BUT -

I think + BUT + is not meaningful.
Topic: Would you please define this sentence ?

You should provide the context in which the sentence was used. You will get more help this way.

What does the phrase " as developed as it’s ever going to get " mean here?

Nissan 370Z's naturally aspirated 3.7-liter V6 under that long hood is about as developed as it’s ever going to get, but it’s been an award-winner in its heyday.

Does it mean that the engine is not the most advanced engine ever?
