2018 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack review

See the full article here. There is a battle royale on at the moment for the adventurous sporty types and the SUV is clearly winning.

2018 Volkswagen Arteon review

See the full article here. Remember the Volkswagen Phaeton? While it never came to Australia, it became globally renowned for being somewhat of an over-engineered (Bentley-based) oddball. The people’s limousine, as it were, was produced for 15 years, but the Bentley-based model missed sales targets, flopped early in the crucial US market, was reportedly one of Europe’s biggest loss-makers, and failed to transform VW’s brand image as hoped...

2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance Edition 1 review

See the full article here While there are truckloads of topics where you mightn’t utter Volkswagen Golf and Porsche 911 in the same breath, they’re kindred compatriots in an important area: both struck successful formulas long ago and have benefited from evolution at the hands of many since...

2017 Volkswagen Golf 7.5 review

See the full article here. 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.

See the full article here. How do you inject some excitement back into an ageing – but still excellent – platform? In the case of the 2017 Volkswagen Touareg Adventure, you add some lifestyle-focused sorcery, and perhaps most importantly, affix a sharp pricing structure. You’ll know from reading any of our previous reviews, that CarAdvice respects the all-round ability of the Touareg...

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 162TSI R-Line review

Read the full article here. The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan 162TSI Highline has all the makings of a proper sports model, but without a catchy name. Should it be called the Tiguan GTI? James takes a closer look.

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-MAX v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Read the full review here  There are work utes – you know, the single-cab budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls...

2017 Ford Ranger XLT vs Volkswagen Amarok V6

Double-cab pickups have been getting ever closer to their SUV stablemates in terms of comfort, safety and technology... but it seems power hasn't been a huge focus. Until now. We put the new Volkswagen Amarok V6 up against the Ford Ranger XLT to see if the new car's added oomph is enough to make it king of the utes.

2017 Volkswagen Amarok V6 review

Read the full review here. When it arrived in 2011, the Volkswagen Amarok redefined what was capable for a double-cab ute. A car-like cabin, and car-like ride made the VW pickup feel different to the trucks we were used to. It felt, well… car-like. But time moved on, and competitors caught up to the Amarok...
