Driver training in the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI

Here's a thing that should make you pause: P-plater drivers have a crash rate 33 times higher than other driver groups, including learners. Here's another: P-platers hold 14 per cent of driver licences in Australia, yet represent a huge 28 per cent of road fatalities. More young people die on the road than from any other cause...

Volkswagen Driving Experience

When tickets to AC/DC's Black Ice tour went on sale, some of the biggest venues in the world sold out in just minutes. Well, so did places in the Volkswagen Driving Experience. Okay, so maybe not quite as fast as the concert tickets that were snaffled up in record time, but the six sessions held in Sydney recently were sold-out in less than 30 minutes...

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...

Volkswagen Golf GTI 40 Years/Clubsport : 2016 Geneva Motor Show

Volkswagen has confirmed to CarAdvice that it will bring the five-door Golf Clubsport, the most powerful Golf GTI ever, to Australia around mid year. But as the Clubsport nameplate is currently used by Holden Special Vehicles (HSV), the Golf Clubsport will be called the ‘Golf GTI 40 Years’ locally when it goes on sale here around mid-year...

Hyundai Tucson Elite 1.6L v Nissan X-Trail ST-L 4WD v Toyota RAV4 GXL v Volkswagen Golf Alltrack : Comparison review

The recent suite of updates added to the evergreen Toyota RAV4 suggests that the just-released 2016 facelift moves the game forward by a tangible margin for this popular mid-sized SUV range. Sharper styling, a lift in cabin features and finishes, plus improved ride, handling, comfort and safety all carry the collective promise of game-lifting and enhanced value...

2013 Volkswagen Golf GTi Review

I've come from the big and heavy side of cars, so going from a "boat" to this MK6 GTI was quite a drastic change. One thing I must point out is the fact that there is A LOT more room inside than it looks like from the outside. I am 6'6 and not only do I fit comfortably, I can also have an average sized person behind me...

When it came to buying my first car, I was looking for a nice, small compact car, with either turbo petrol or turbo diesel. After looking around at other similar cars, I came across a 2015 vw golf demo base model with a price that was to good to ignore. I have had the car for just under a year...

2014 Volkswagen Golf R Review

The new Golf R is lighter, faster, more efficient and bigger than its predecessor and comes packed with technology (like an ESP system you can fully disengage). On paper, what is essentially a Golf GTI with more power and four-wheel drive doesn’t sound all that exciting yet, in the R, VW has made a genuinely rapid car with that rare knack of feeling totally secure and, at the same time, fantastically biddable, as if it were always working out the best way to extract the most pace from any given input on any given road...
