2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 132TSI Comfortline review: Long-term report two – interior space and comfort

Our long-term Volkswagen Tiguan has already proved its mettle as a city-focused medium SUV in many ways, which we’ll detail in later instalments. Here, though, the focus is on the Tiguan’s utilitarian interior. The 132TSI Comfortline model we have in our garage sits in the middle of the Tiguan range and will set you back around $41K before on-road costs...

2017 Volkswagen Touareg Adventure review

We know the Touareg platform is ageing in the face of revised competition, but with this special Adventure edition, Volkswagen has injected some new appeal and value into an already excellent SUV.

The Shortlist: SUV with space for tall teens and luggage with a petrol-auto drivetrain

Doing what we do, CarAdvice writers are often asked by friends and family, and through our contact page: which car is best for me? Most buyers can identify the top three non-negotiable factors that will guide their purchase decision. But… where to from there? In this series, we look at these cases and single out three cars that fit the brief...

2017 Volkswagen Caddy Runner review

A price that isn't as sharp as it once was, and a ride that is sharper than we'd hoped: those are two elements that make the 2017 Volkswagen Caddy Runner an option that requires some weighing up.

Volkswagen 'Spirit of Amarok' Challenge: CarAdvice represent!

While most utes spend their time in and around the urban grind traversing worksites and city parking lots, there’s a subset of utes and ute buyers that do a little bit more. Volkswagen recognised this and established the Volkswagen Spirit of Amarok Challenge, which combines competitors from all over the world to compete against the clock across a range of technical and rally stages...

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 132TSI Comfortline review: Long-term report one – introduction

The all-new 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan, launched in the second half of last year, has established a new benchmark in the hotly-contested medium SUV segment. The Tiguan is by no means the bestseller in the segment – that honour belongs to Mazda’s CX-5 – but at CarAdvice, we reckon the Tiguan is the pick of the medium SUV bunch...

Family haulers: Volkswagen Multivan v Honda Odyssey

When you need to move a lot of people around, your options are limited. A seven-seat SUV might not have the 'daggy' stereotype of a people mover, but you can't argue against the practicality of a van. Over the Easter long weekend my family descended on my tiny apartment with big plans to explore the city and experience everything Sydney has to offer...

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 162TSI R-Line review

The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 162TSI Highline has all the makings of a proper sports model, but without a catchy name. Should it be called the Tiguan GTI? James takes a closer look.

2017 Volkswagen Amarok Core TDI420 review

The Amarok is the best dual-cab 4WD in the segment by some margin, but a lack of safety kit and second row airbags hamper it. In this Core trim, though, the Amarok has its best chance to shine.

2017 Volkswagen Passat 206TSI R-Line review

At $57,990 the 2017 Volkswagen Passat 206TSI R-Line is a true semi-prestige value-for-money hero among the 'bottom feeder' models from the big three German luxury car manufacturers.

2016 Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Crewvan TSI220 Review: Long-term report five, and farewell

Instalment five of our long-term test of the 2016 Volkswagen Caddy Maxi Crewvan TSI220 is the final one, and it sees our chief photographer, Sam Venn, telling us what he reckoned. Get this – he hadn’t spent much time in a manual before we got this vehicle, so it was a learning curve for him... You’ve spent time driving, loading, unloading and parking the car...
