2021 Volkswagen Golf 110 TSI R-line review

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to visit New Zealand. We knew we had quite a bit of driving ahead of us so booking a decent rental was important. I found Sixt have recently launched operations in New Zealand and have an awesome fleet available to rent, and some of the models are even guaranteed. We booked a Golf Mk8 for the five days and covered 1,400km in that time in the North Island...

2017 Volkswagen Golf R review

After owning a Nissan GT-R R35 for four years and wanting something that could actually carry four passengers, while not attracting too much attention, and could get between traffic lights at a reasonable pace, I settled on a Golf R wagon. Let’s just say that, bang for buck, it’s an exceptional package...

2015 Volkswagen Golf 110 TSI Highline review

I bought my 2015 Golf Highline based on features and performance. Oh and the fuel economy, which is under 6 litres per 100kilometres and is repeatedly achievable. Fuel economy is 100% fantastic. I am disappointed with the silly space-saver tyre as there’s no financial gain aftermarket. I dumped it and bought a real wheel...

2014 Volkswagen Golf 90 TSI Comfortline review

I’ll start by telling you I hate Golfs. Why, you ask? The would have to be one of the most boring cars ever made. They make even a Corolla look exciting. Yet since 1974 it's been a bestseller across the globe. Not much has changed since the Mk1; all Golfs look the same, only come in white and are always at least a couple of grand dearer than a Corolla...

2014 Volkswagen Golf 90 TSI Comfortline review

NOTE: CarAdvice Editorial photos have been used as none were provided by the writer. - The sun has set on one of my best partnerships of all time. Our Little Buddy never let us down, never complained, always said, "Yes" to a dance, and was always able to run alongside the grown-ups...

2020 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack 132TSI Premium review

This car replaced a 2013 Golf Mk6 GTI with an APR Stage 1 tune. The Alltrack is my wife’s car really, but I am allowed to drive it as I am the chief car detailer. We moved to the country a couple of years ago and the GTI was great fun around the local roads, however it was becoming a little impractical due to the low ride height...

2019 Volkswagen Golf 110 TSI Highline review

Another six months of ownership have passed since the first introduction to my latest and current drive. In the eight months since picking up the Golf Highline with R-Line package it has covered just under 7,000km. The majority of this has been urban commute in regional Queensland during those glorious hot summer months, giving many opportunities to test the heat of the leather seats and sunroof...

2018 Volkswagen Golf R Wagon review

NOTE: stock images have been used as none were provided by owner. I’d always wanted one of the performance Golfs, but I always needed something a bit more practical... then along came the Golf R Wagon. Perfect! I’ve had mine for about 18 months now and thankfully it has not disappointed. It’s a bit understated, which I like for the most part...

2012 Volkswagen Golf R review

Having owned my Volkswagen Golf R for eight months now and recently completing my first service, now feels to be the right time to write a review on it. I have been into performance cars for as long as I can remember and once I obtained my full licence earlier this year I wanted something a bit more fun than the highly reliable and practical Toyota Camry I was driving on my P’s...

2003 Volkswagen Golf GTi review

Several months ago I decided I needed a small run around for doing the mundane things in life. This meant I could leave the cars I actually enjoyed driving in my garage, safe from the rigors of day to day traffic and car park life. I wondered what to get. So my list of items included; small, cheap, fuel efficient in manual, zippy and maybe even fun? Importantly it had to be mechanically simple, reliable and cheap to work on...

2019 Volkswagen Golf 110 TSI Trendline review

It baffles me that you don’t see more Golf wagons on the road. It has the space of an SUV with the handling of a hatchback. The fuel economy of a sedan with the off-road nous of a full size 4WD. Okay, the 4WD ability wasn’t quite there, but I gave it a good crack on a few occasions...
