There wasn't much wrong with the seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf, but the new 7.5 version borders on perfection. It's quite possibly the best all-round hatchback ever built.

2019 Volkswagen Golf 110 TSI Comfortline review

I bought this car as a first car that'd get me to footy training, uni and little errands whilst still keeping my passion for automobiles alive and not boring me to death - as do many mid-size hatchbacks. After a pool of many cars, I'd ultimately narrowed it down to a used BMW 1 Series, a new Ford Focus and this demo Golf,...

2008 Volkswagen Golf GTI review

The idea of a hot hatch is very appealing to not only me, but also to a percentage of the market. You get all the fun of a performance car with none of the usual drawbacks. I purchased my VW Golf GTI brand new back in 2008. I wanted something bigger and more usable than my previous Peugeot 205...

2010 Volkswagen Golf GTi review

The Car Story. The Golf GTi. Despite the criticisms that come with this particular VW brand; “boring”, “bland”, or “driven by accountants”, people around the world have overwhelmingly come to the conclusion that there are not many cars out there that can meet the demands of daily driving while still putting a smile on your face...

2016 Volkswagen Golf 110 TSI Highline review

This is the first brand new car I have ever bought, so it is fair to say I did a decent amount of research online before settling on a few cars I wanted to test drive. The short list came down to the Ford Focus Titanium, Mazda 3 SP25 GT and the Golf. Being self-employed I had the benefit of being able to purchase it through the company, with the idea being to turn over the car every 3-4 years...

2018 Volkswagen Golf R Special Edition review

It was on the day we picked up our 162TSI Tiguan that the dealership manager noticed that I was eyeing off the showroom Golf R while my wife finalised the paperwork for delivery. "Why don't you take it for a spin?" He said as he handed over the keys to me of their showroom demo Golf R...

2018 Volkswagen Golf R Review

Some would say the Mk7.5 Golf R is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Subtle looks on the outside to the untrained eye can result in people mistaking it for just another regular Volkswagen. But look more closely and you will see the flared arches, gloss black body kit, and four exhaust pipes, showing that the R is no joke. And that’s what’s so appealing to me about the Mk 7...

2018 Volkswagen Golf R review

I think it is sluggish, especially when taking off. The rest I recommend. It handles very well, with plenty of space inside the cabin. This is my second VW, and the first one was a 2.0-litre turbo diesel I loved. But the dream was always the R, so my wife bought me one. But coming from other sports cars, my personal opinion is it should have more power...

2011 Volkswagen Golf 118TSI Comfortline review

I won't bore you too much with my rationale for purchasing this car, but I was on the hunt for a hatchback to comfortably ferry a disabled parent, drive to work and attend sporting fixtures, all predominantly in the inner city. If I'd frequented any VW forums, I probably would've ruled out the twincharged engine...

2017 Volkswagen Golf 110TSI Highline review

We’ve had the car well over a year now and we have travelled nearly 30,000km including a road trip from Brisbane to Sydney and back with our family of five. We are so glad to have optioned the driver assistance package which has not only made the car safe for our family, but also a pleasure to drive and should help resale value as this is now standard on the new Golf Highline...

2011 Volkswagen Golf 77TSI review

I’ve always thought of the Volkswagen Golf as the McDonald’s Cheeseburger of the hatchback world. It’s not the tastiest, the fanciest or the most embellished option on the market, but it’s time-tested, solid and you know exactly what you’re getting when you buy one...

2011 Volkswagen Golf GTD review

Coming from a car that required premium petrol (having a couple of prior issues, I was sticking to 98 to keep the engine happy) and the prices going up and up, only to get average range from a tank, I wanted something zippy and different that was cheap and efficient to run. Considering a range of cars, ultimately a low kilometre, well-looked-after GTD Golf caught my eye...
