2007 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Braving cold conditions, I jetted up to the NSW Southern Highlands to sample Volkswagen’s newest model addition – the new Volkswagen Touareg. According to Volkswagen, 2,300 new components have been developed for the new Touareg – ranging from front and rear end design, right through to electronic systems such as ABS Plus and active rollover protection...

Volkswagen Golf GT Review

Volkswagen Golf GT - Local launch - Gold Coast “It’s a 1.4 litre, but goes harder than most 2.5 litre cars and sips fuel at the rate of 7.7 litres/100kms – meet the Golf GT”   A big car accident, some rain, and a Schumaker aspiring truck driver were barely going to interrupt Volkswagen’s media launch of the all new Golf GT...

2007 Volkswagen Golf GT Review

Update : Specifications on the Golf GT “It’s a 1.4 litre, but goes harder than most 2.5 litre cars and sips fuel at the rate of 7.7 litres/100kms – meet the Golf GT” A big car accident, rain and a Schumaker aspiring truck driver were barely going to interrupt Volkswagen's Australian Golf GT launch drive...

2007 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI Road Test

2007 VOLKSWAGEN TOUAREG V6 TDI – ROAD TEST Test model: 2007 Touareg 3.0 V6 TDI Options fitted: Metallic paint only. Almost all the goodies come as standard kit aboard the Touareg although, disappointingly, metallic and Pearlescent paint is a $1450 option – and given that you only have one choice in the standard paint line up (Campanella white and trust me, that’s no choice) you will need to go with this option...

2007 Volkswagen Eos First Steer

A convertible with a sunroof, it almost defies logic. But – in a world first – the new Volkswagen Eos features a five-section hard top with an integrated sliding/tilting sunroof. The idea is that the sunroof is used when it’s not hot enough for the roof to be down – these are the hard decisions that convertible drivers are dealt, it’s a hard life isn’t it? Launching the new Volkswagen Eos was reserved for one of the most picturesque parts of Australia – The Great Ocean Road...

2006 Volkswagen Golf R32 Road Test

2006 Volkswagen Golf R32 Road Test Test model: 2006 Volkswagen Golf R32, five-door with DSG Options fitted: Electric glass sunroof - $1621.00 – OK, I’d think about it Satellite navigation system with CD changer - $2436.00 – No, I’d buy a portable touch screen unit for less than $1000...

2006 Volkswagen Passat TFSI Road Test

My booking with the Volkswagen Passat TFSI was re-jigged a couple of times prior to picking up the car, so after that slight scheduling disaster I finally had my bottom planted on the leather-clad driver’s seat. I left without hesitation, just in-case there was another scheduling hiccup that I was yet to be made aware of...

2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Road Test

When the new Volkswagen Jetta was driven out to me I stared at it dead on for a moment, soon before shuffling through my diary to confirm which vehicle I was booked in for. From front on the new Jetta looks the exact same as a chromed up Golf, it wasn’t until I stepped to the side to look at the side profile that I noticed the difference...

2006 Volkswagen Polo GTI Road Test

Don’t be fooled by the rather placid looks. When compared to the Polo TDI there is very little difference. It all comes into its own when you turn the key, grab the gear and stab the throttle. Some of the words I used when that turbo spooled weren’t exactly G-rated; in fact they were far from it. The Polo GTI only comes with two doors, which is both cool and annoying at the same time...

2006 Volkswagen Polo TDI Road Test

It’s a nice sunny Melbourne day and I roll into the petrol station in a small, red…Diesel. The gentleman next to me in his V8 SS Commodore has a quick chuckle when he hears the truck like idle of the Polo, quietly wishing his car wasn’t purchased to compensate for something else... So, I feel like a bit of a cheapskate, not only am I in a small car but it’s also a Diesel...

2006 Volkswagen Touareg R5 TDI Luxury Road Test

Getting into the Touareg R5 TDI Luxury is like boarding your own private jet. There are so many buttons for so many things and there is enough wood to fill a good portion of the Amazon forest. You also get a big, meaty wheel that is serrated with buttons, along with a very cool flip out starter key. Once you are done gazing in total awe at the beautiful interior, you go to start the machine...
