2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI review

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI update brings a power bump to 169kW, and adds state-of-the-art infotainment tech as an option. It's hard to envisage a better all-round hot hatch.

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...

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...

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...

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...
