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...

1976 Volkswagen Kombi review

Ah, where do you start with a piece of motoring history like this? I grew up with not a single interest in vehicles - all I knew was that when it was time to purchase my first car it was going to be a Kombi. This is something that no first car buyer now will have the joy of doing due to the obscene asking price for them now! Sure enough the time came, I came of age and needed a vehicle...

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...

2016 Volkswagen Scirocco R Wolfsburg Edition review

This is my second VW Scirocco. In late 2016 my 2013 Scirocco R lease was coming to an end, and Volkwagen released this final Wolfsburg edition... so after a brief scan of the market for other options, I decided to continue with VW and this limited edition model. My particular car is a 6-speed manual in Oryx White Pearl paintwork, and I also ticked the sunroof option...

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...

2013 Volkswagen Amarok TDI420 Trendline (4x4) review

This Amarok was purchased new 190,000km ago, and it has been the best twin-cab ute that I have owned in terms of performance, ride and comfort. It's a great bus. The motor pulls strong when accelerating and it handles light towing with ease. The ZF8 gearbox is amazing and makes the Amarok ideal for touring...
