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.

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...

Meet Steve Pizzati: Volkswagen's dynamo driving instructor

A man who was never going to live an ordinary life, Steve Pizzati is as well known for his skills as a driving instructor, race driver, presenter and journalist, as he is for his quirky sense of humour, passion for the motoring industry and infectious love of driving and cars...

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...

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...

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...

All of these vehicles have seen some updates and changes since the start of the year, and we figured it was time to see where the flagship version of each sits among its peers in the class...

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...

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...

2013 Volkswagen Golf 118 TSI Comfortline Review

To some the Golf is the king of the C Segment while to others they are a ticking time bomb. These differing opinions aren’t surpising when over 30 million Golf's having been built globally. To add my 2 cents I thought I would share my past year and a half experience with my 2013 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagon 118TSI Comfortline. The 118TSI Comfortline has a 1...

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...

2015 Volkswagen Golf 90 TSI Review

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...
