2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack 135TDI review

The Volkswagen Golf Alltrack crossover has always flown under the radar against in-demand SUVs. But the MY17 update, headlined by this new diesel flagship, has a lot of great attributes.

2017 Volkswagen Golf 110TSI Highline review

There wasn't much wrong with the seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf, but the new 7.5 version borders on perfection. It's quite possibly the best all-round hatchback ever built.

2017 Volkswagen Golf 110TSI Trendline review

While the 'new' 2017 Volkswagen Golf isn't all new, it is a significant enough update to be known as 7.5. Here, we take a close look at the volume seller, the Trendline.

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!

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...

Holden Astra RS-V v Volkswagen Golf 110TSI comparison

The Volkswagen Golf has been a massive sales success for Volkswagen Australia. While Dieselgate had the potential to dampen spirits and kill sales, the Golf remains one of the best selling small cars on the market. So you can imagine why Holden was so keen to get the all-new 2017 Holden Astra into Australia, launching the vehicle in late 2016, following on from it winning the prestigious 2016 European Car of the Year award...

Volkswagen Golf '7.5' launching with sharpened prices

Car companies have traditionally reserved aggressive subsidisation of on-road taxes and charges until a vehicle was further into its life cycle and had lost some of its lustre. But reflecting the extreme competitiveness of the Australian market - one of the world's most fragmented - many brands are offering key models with sharp drive-away deals at launch...

2008 Volkswagen Golf GTi Review

I was looking to buy a first car which would be fun and looked good but would also never let me down. It was safe to say it was love at first sight when I saw my car. It had everything I wanted in a car, plus a few optional extras hard to find in cars in the 14 to 15 thousand dollar range, such as sun roof; sat nav and premium sound system...

2003 Volkswagen Golf GTi review

As a teenager, it seems few things actually matter in life – having a ‘fully sick’ turbocharged car is one of the few things you think actually does matter. Here in South Australia, as well as in a number of other states, turbocharged cars were outlawed for P-platers because, it's believed, that tiny little bit of boost was too much for the small minds and feeble hands of rookie drivers to manage...

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...
