2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI manual review

Is the Volkswagen Golf GTI manual the purist's tool of choice? Or should you go for the DSG? Matt Campbell reckons its stick-shift, or die.

2018 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack review

The Volkswagen Passat Alltrack presents an attractive alternative to the flood of SUVs on our roads today. But does its road presence match the chops of its off-road ability?

Volkswagen Amarok towing challenge – from Perth to Sydney with a ’69 Beetle on the back

It sounds like the dream road trip of so many Australians – Perth to Sydney, the Nullarbor, the Great Australian Bight. The Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. The West Coast to the East Coast.
