2012 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF 118 TSI COMFORTLINE Review

A quiet, superbly economical long-distance cruiser with seats providing all-day comfort, this car shows how careful development can produce a small car suitable both for country and town. There is no magic here: engineering makes the difference. When the Chinese - as they will - want the bare bones of a car which can beat most other vehicles on the road for quietness, cruising silence and real-world economy, this will be their target...

2009 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF 118 TSI COMFORTLINE Review

I am pleased with handling, acceleration, braking. The interior is good, driver comfort good. Driving is a pleasure on freeway and suburban streets. Grip is good with the supplied tyres although the car has a space saver spare. I find the seats comfortable and supportive. Alas having push button seat config memory is not available for those with only one car between two...

2006 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF GTi Review

Having read all the reviews and wanting something with enough performance i was looking for a WRX/207 GTi/Golf GTi/Clio. I think the WRX days were behind me and went to view a Golf GTi. It looks good even being 6 yrs old. It goes great - it is an extremely fun car to drive. It is great on fuel (even if you give it a squirt)...

2009 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF 118 TSI COMFORTLINE Review

On paper the Golf is awesome and this is reflected when driving it. Performance and comfort are both flawless in my opinion. Though things aren't as good when you move beyond the road tests and go on to be an owner. Firstly fuel consumption. It comes down to physics I'm afraid; if a car does 0-100 in 8 seconds then it uses fuel like a car that goes from 0-100 in 8 seconds...

2009 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF 103 TDI COMFORTLINE Review

We wanted to tow a small caravan and carry 4 adults with good economy, plenty of power and low depreciation. This car has more torque, uses less fuel and depreciates less than a V6 Commodore. It can tow 1300kg which is more than the other small cars and it has more rear seat room than other small cars too. There is plenty of room for 4 adults...

2012 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF 103 TDI COMFORTLINE Review

I purchased the 103TDI for its ability to be more than it seems. The TDI engine has changed my opinion of diesels forever. It's smooth, quiet, yet powerful heart are more than enough for this car. The economy is impressive around town, getting between 5.5-7.5l/100. On the highway it plummets even further. The best I've got, 3.9l/100km...

2011 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF 77 TSI Review

I've owned my Silver Golf 77TSI since the middle of December 2011. After a trip down to Nambucca Heads in New South Wales, I can say it's a practical, comfortable and efficient hatchback. The 77TSI engine has enough power to overtake on the highway, even with quite a lot of camping gear in the back. Fuel consumption is good...

2009 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF 118 TSI COMFORTLINE Review

In 2006 we purchased our first VW Golf and when it was time to trade we had no hesitation to buy another Golf. VWs are renowned for good resale value but it took a lot of work to get a fair trade in price for our imaculate condition Golf. The new 118TSI was around 1 litre/100Km better than the previous model 2.0 litre...

2009 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF 118TSI COMFORTLINE Review

The 118TSI Golf really excels itself in its class in many ways. The 1.4 'twincharge' engine packs a solid punch with very quick off the line performance soldiering hard right through to the redline, all this performance whilst returning best in class fuel figures for a petrol variant, many times on highway cruising my average has sat in the 4.8-5...

2008 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF GTI Review

I purchased the GTI new in July 2008. My previous car was a 1.3L Honda Jazz, so this was a big change in type of car. I purchased the car after reading a lot of car reviews. I think the main reason I bought the GTI was because I was drawn to the DSG gearbox, having previously had a CVT gearbox in the Jazz. So I guess I was influenced a bit by the engineering of the car...

2006 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF TDI Review

I searched and searched for an appropriate 2nd-hand diesel Golf. Finally I found one and have never looked back. Great fun to drive with heaps of mid range torque. This car is a pleasure to take on the highway - feels like it was made for the autobahns in Germany. There is a bit of a blind spot due to the thick C pillar so be careful when changing lanes...
