Volkswagen Golf

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 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 110 TSI starts at $23,990 up to $61,990 for the Golf R SPECIAL EDITION and is available as everything from a city-bound hatchback to snarling GTI and R performance versions.

This vehicle is also known as Volkswagen Rabbit, Volkswagen Caribe.

Editor's Pick

Volkswagen Golf 2017 review

The Golf 7.5, as the name implies, is a substantial mid-life upgrade of the current model. To raise the stakes, and sales (they hope), VW has injected new life into its marquee small-car player.Read more

Volkswagen Golf R 2018 review: Grid Edition wagon long term

It might look like a sedate family hauler, but Volkswagen's Golf R wagon Grid Edition is hiding a ferocious secret under that understated bonnet.Read more

Volkswagen Golf GTI Original 2018 review

They say less is more, and the Volkswagen Golf GTI Original is a perfect example.Read more

Volkswagen Golf 2018 review: 110 TSI Highline wagon

Wagon sales aren’t exactly huge at the moment, as the SUV steamroller continues to flatten our historical attachment to conventional cars with an extra bit tacked on the back.Read more

Volkswagen Golf GTI Performance Edition 1 2018 review

Less and more - that seems to be the rationale behind this flagship Golf GTI, which has two fewer doors but plenty of extra grunt.Read more

Volkswagen Golf GTE 2018 review

It might look like a regular VW Golf. Even one with the flavour of the sporty GTI. But, like Clark Kent, this mild-mannered GTE hatch has amazing superpowers hidden under an unassuming exterior.Read more

Volkswagen Golf R 2017 review: weekend test

A car that is great big barrels of fun and that has room for the whole family? Sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong. What it sounds like is the Volkswagen Golf RRead more

Volkswagen Golf R wagon 2017 review

Compact performance wagons are something Euro carmakers do extremely well. And happily, the Volkswagen Golf R, is returning to Australia in wagon form from January next year. We took a preview drive.Read more

Volkswagen Golf Comfortline 2017 review

Volkswagen's Golf range might not have the same market reach as rivals like Mazda, Toyota and Hyundai, but the new Mk VII.5 Golf is definitely worth a look.Read more

Volkswagen Golf R 2017 review

VW has lightly tweaked its potent Golf R in line with the model's mid-life Mk 7.5 update, but has largely left the important stuff alone. This is a good thing – that stuff is still as good as it gets.Read more
