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.

2015 Volkswagen Golf 90 TSI Review

Six weeks down and 2200km on the clock, and this car is utterly enjoyable! Tweaked the audio eq, played with cruise control, had a look for hidden buttons and features that may not get a usual mention...

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...

2012 Volkswagen Golf Review

Back in 2012 after we'd paid off the “family” car, I was given the OK to find my fun car. Budget was around $40k, and after eliminating the Mazda 3 MPS (old model, scratchy plastics) it was down to the Renault Megane RS265 or the Volkswagen Golf GTI. With our 2nd child on the way and a wife that wanted back doors, the GTI won out...

2007 Volkswagen Golf Review

Ever seen the movie, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde?! It's the tale of a mild mannered scientist who decides the best way to test his new formula is to take it himself and, in doing so, transforms into a homicidal maniac. That's really the only way I can aptly describe the VW Golf R32. Sedate highway cruiser one minute, mountain pass mutilator the next...

2015 Volkswagen Golf R Review

One week with my Golf R and loving it. Practical. Check. Fast. Check. Comfortable. Check. Anonymous. Check. I have owned many cars and this is the first to balance all of the above perfectly. Whether you tootle about town incognito or carve up hills roads at maximum attack the R is at home...

2012 Volkswagen Golf R Review

I have loved every single day of ownership of my 2013 GOLF R in Rising blue. Being in Real Estate I average between 400-500kms a week so I am impressed with complete urban driving to average between 9.8L and 10.5L to the 100km, mind you I do have a soft foot. The gearbox and engine work well together and the ratio's are well spaced however 6th gear is a tad short for highway cruising I find...

2014 Volkswagen Golf GTi Performance Review

Depending on who you ask, the Golf GTI is either a performance hot hatch bargain or a slow, overpriced, front-drive lemon. It’s fair to say that the truth lies somewhere in between - but spending copious amounts of time reading car websites assures me that is a car that polarises opinion. I’ve now had this car for almost two years and clocked up 20,000km in the process...

2015 Volkswagen Golf 103 TSI Highline Review

The exterior design is dated and bland but internally the car looks and feels quality (although you'll have to buy premium pack if you want leather upholstery and who wants a sunroof other than someone with a comb over?) Reviews often highlight good ergonomics but steering wheel controls are small and fiddly...
