Volkswagen Golf GTI 40 Years review

The best Golf GTi in the model's 40 year history is here - but is it that much better than the regular GTI, and should you choose it over a Golf R?

2016 Volkswagen Golf GTE Plug-in Review

The Volkswagen Golf GTE plug-in is an impressive piece of technology, that we hope launches in Australia soon.

2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI 40 Years Review

The 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI 40 Years is much more than a bodykit and sticker pack – in fact it's a faster, sharper, more powerful GTI.

2017 Volkswagen Passat and Golf GTE - 2016 Paris Motor Show

Hybrids are big news at the 2016 Paris Motor Show and Volkswagen is pulling no punches with their GTE lineup. The Golf mirrors the sporty look of a GTI, but has a 1.4-litre petrol engine and hybrid drive system to allow a 1.7L/100km fuel consumption. It even has tartan seats!

Focus RS v Golf R v WRX STI Comparison: Track Test

Read the full article here. We put the 2016 Ford Focus RS up against the 2016 Subaru WRX STI and 2016 Volkswagen Golf R around Haunted Hills in Victoria. Well, we don't Australian rally driver Chris Atkinson does...

2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance Review

Read the article here. Call the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance boring. Call it bland. Call it the populist choice that will ensure you’re forever anonymous, running round in a sea of other Volkswagen Golfs. You can call the GTI Performance all those things but there’s one other title you should also bestow upon it - the most complete, all-round hot-hatch benchmark...

2016 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline v Volkswagen Golf R Review : Wagon track battle

Read the article here. At CarAdvice, we argue about cars. A lot. On almost a daily basis, protagonists will stake claims, draw battle lines, spit dummies, and grudge matches play out around the office with rarely any resolution reached. It’s not the imbalanced bravado and colourful language that makes such conflict unfit for publication, it just doesn’t really fit the largely objective mould of critical review...

Ford Focus RS v Subaru WRX STI v Volkswagen Golf R Comparison: Track Test

The first part of our Ford Focus RS versus Subaru WRX STI versus Volkswagen Golf R comparison, the road test, ended with the Volkswagen claiming victory over the new Ford and the Subaru. This, though, is the second instalment – the track element – and it's the best chance the compromised but vastly gifted RS has to win back some ground...

Ford Focus RS v Subaru WRX STI v Volkswagen Golf R Comparison: Road Test

Think turbocharged, four-wheel-drive cars and it's hard not to picture rally monsters flying over jumps and sliding through forests millimetres from trees. These days, though, buyers keen for a road-going, boosted, all-paw performance car are spoilt for choice. And, if you've got around $50k to spend, three of the best you can buy are the Ford Focus RS, Subaru WRX STI, and Volkswagen Golf R...

2016 Volkswagen Golf 92 TSI Comfortline review

Before I purchased my new Golf TSI Comfortline in March this year, I spent many hours searching various motoring websites for car reviews, and Forum sites for a list of cars that might suit me (e.g.; Mazda3, Kia Cerato, Hyundai i30 and Elantra, Toyota Corolla – and I even test-drove a Kia Si Sportage Diesel)...

2014 Volkswagen Golf GTi Performance Review

Traditionally I have been a loyal Subaru fan (WRX and Liberty GT & 3.6R) but you outgrow the Subaru range. I read all the media hype regarding the VW Golf and took the plunge with a red VW Golf GTI Performance Pack with HP bump, R brakes, Dual Xenon’s and LED, LSD, Alcantara and Adaptive Chassis Control. At just over 2 years in, I am still in love...

2016 Volkswagen Golf 92TSI Review

The Volkswagen Golf is a really well put together and great handling small car let down by a clunky dual-clutch gearbox. We purchased this basest of base model 92TSI Golfs as an ex-demo with around 4k on the odometer for $22,000 dollars - pricing that seems pretty competitive with other small cars on the market, discounting what will probably be higher servicing costs...

2013 Volkswagen Golf GTi Review

It has been nearly three years since I took delivery of my new, white (with Tartan interior) VW Mk 7 GTi and said goodbye to my fantastic, but family unfriendly Porsche Boxster. The Golf is the first car I had bought brand new and I must say I haven't been disappointed...
