Volkswagen Golf Reviews

Few cars have had the impact of the Volkswagen Golf. With worldwide sales in excess of 30 million, it's fair to say that VW's small-sized hatch is a pretty big deal. Introduced in Australia in 1976 as a replacement for the classic Beetle, the Golf has undergone a series of growth spurts and facelifts to stay up-to-date and remain a viable option for Australian families. The Golf pulls off a fairly neat trick – it's big enough to seat four in comfort, but small enough to park with ease. It's reserved enough to not draw attention, but classy enough that you don't feel short-changed at traffic lights. It's quiet enough to sit all day at freeway speeds, and interesting enough when you turn onto a back road. The Golf is available as everything from a city-bound hatchback to snarling GTI and R performance versions and even an Alltrack off-road wagon.
