Read the article here. The Volkswagen Golf GTI has long been the preeminent hot-hatch for keen drivers. But what if you’re after a European small car with a little extra spice, that isn’t the Volkswagen? What are some alternatives? And how close can they get to the benchmark GTI?

VW Golf 90 TSI Comfortline Review

Volkswagen Golf 90 TSI Comfortline hatch review The Volkswagen Golf is a critical darling, and we’re often asked why. It’s a good question. Indeed, it’s rare to see a Golf of any stripe losing in a comparison test to one of its small-car rivals. As a feat of engineering backed by Volkswagen’s near-bottomless pockets, it’s a hard act the follow...

Volkswagen Golf GTI v Peugeot 308 GT v Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV : Five-door hot-hatch comparison

The term ‘hot-hatch’ is commonly used to describe a hatchback that straddles the line between performance and practicality. Some skew closer to performance than practicality, while others veer the other way. What happens when you have Volkswagen Golf GTI money, though, but don’t necessarily want to blend in with the tartan-clad German crowd? That’s where the French Peugeot 308 GT and Italian Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV step in...

Peugeot 308 Touring v Volkswagen Golf Wagon : Comparison review

Not everyone wants an SUV and even those who crave one may be better off with a traditional wagon – it is a line we’ve heard before, yet the sales charts scream that the people have spoken otherwise. Neither the Peugeot 308 Touring or Volkswagen Golf Wagon can provide the high driving position of a sports utility vehicle, and likewise they don’t sit high enough that you could slide a baby into a capsule without bending down into the car...

Audi S1 v Renault Megane RS275 Trophy v Volkswagen Golf R : Comparison review

The hot-hatch genre may be moving at exceptional pace across all price points, but circa-$50,000 fast hatchbacks are also defying stereotypes that used to be a given. Five years ago the Renault Sport Megane was crowned the undisputed king of a segment that stuffs an energetic engine under the bonnet of a relatively small car...

Volkswagen Golf Alltrack priced from $37,990

The Volkswagen Golf Alltrack has launched in Australia, priced from $37,990 plus on-road costs. Introducing a new off-road-friendly, shrunken-SUV flavour to the popular Golf range, the Alltrack undercuts its most logical rival, Skoda’s Octavia Scout 132TSI ($38,590) with which the crossover Volkswagen shares much of its mechanical DNA, including powertrain and underpinnings...

2009 Volkswagen Golf Review

My dear mother, bless her, had managed to implant a nail into the sidewall of the rear left tyre on my R32 down at the local shops, a feat I'm still unsure is physically possible. At the tyre shop later that day I was surprised not by the price of a replacement ContiSport 5 (very high if you were wondering), but more by the fact that in little under an hour three different people had offered to buy the car from me...

2011 Volkswagen Golf Review

What if someone said to you, if you were to buy ONE car, one car to do everything, what would you choose? For many, the answer would be different based off their needs and lifestyles. But what if you're a motoring enthusiast, like me? We're often misunderstood for indulging in cars but at the end of the day we still need something to rely on a day-to-day basis...

2013 Volkswagen Golf Review

Mindspace – Year 2000 The journey began when our family buz decided to take a turn south and my beloved 2012 Range Rover Sport had to go! The period of austerity was to begin, sensible, practical, reliable was to take place, but how this was to be executed was the overarch question? Many years prior to the family buz was my advertising life, which included quite a few years of scooting around Melbourne in the latest offering from Germany, at the time this meant Volkswagen Golfs, coated either in silver/ black/ or white, all agreed… the best value for the new millennium! Fast Forward – Facebook New Volkswagen Golf 7 pops up in my feed; the sleek new body (yet distinctively Golf) instantly draws my attention, a click through to the VW site for more info! It's lighter, safer, more economical, and best of all; my obsession with brand image isn't going to be completely stripped once the Rangie goes (so I keep reminding myself)...

2012 Volkswagen Golf Review

The “R” as it's affectionately known by its owners is a 188 kilowatt, 2-litre turbocharged pocket rocket in semi conservative attire. The R sits at the top of the Golf range, with subtle styling cues hinting that it's something more special than your neighbour's base model Golf...
