It sounds like the dream road trip of so many Australians – Perth to Sydney, the Nullarbor, the Great Australian Bight. The Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. The West Coast to the East Coast. The great Australian road trip. It felt like a dream. Or, more correctly, like a blur, because I just completed this famed cross-country jaunt in only four-and-a-half days...
The 2017 Volkswagen Polo Urban is really good – for the money, there's not a better city car in the segment.
The Volkswagen Golf R wagon becomes a fully-fledged offering in Australia from early 2018. But we're in Germany for the Frankfurt motor show, so we may as well have an early steer.

It pays to have a comfortable car in Sydney and I'm thankful the Tiguan is just that, with a sturdy sports-esque manually adjusted cloth seat that has just the right amount of support...

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf Wagon in 7.5 guise is just like it was before – a competent family hauler we'd happily recommend to buyers who don't want an SUV.
There’s a lot to like about our long-term Volkswagen Tiguan 132TSI Comfortline. Since lobbing in our long-term garage in April, it’s been smooth sailing with barely a fingernail-down-the-blackboard moment of irritation. Simply, there’s not a lot it does wrong. And that rings true of its infotainment system, too...
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.
