  • VW Tiguan 2.0 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £20,500

    24 September 2007 by Georg Kacher

    Why is VW so late to the 4x4 party? Blame management, complicated model cycles and just about every other excuse under the sun. And speaking of the sun, those countries from the land of the rising sun...

  • VW Touareg V10 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £54,867

    03 July 2007 by Steve Prentice

    The new VW Touareg? What's different? Yes, true, the new-look front end is more of a tweak than a full redesign, but VW has changed 2300 individual parts in the new Touareg, including brakes,...

  • VW Polo Bluemotion 1.4 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £11,995

    03 June 2007 by Chris Chilton

    If 4Motion means four-wheel drive, what’s this Bluemotion all about? Nothing to do with four-wheel drive - or going fast. It’s Volkswagen’s ecological brand applied to the most efficient and...

  • VW Golf Estate 2.0 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £17,862

    11 May 2007 by Georg Kacher

    Volkswagen took their time unleashing this handsome devil Yes, the previous VW management dithered, discussed and delayed the project until it was almost past its sell-by date. In July 2007, two full...

  • VW Golf GTi Edition 30 (2006) review

    Price:  £22,795

    22 December 2006 by Chris Chilton

    Has it really been 30 years since the original hot Golf first arrived? Actually the first 1.6-litre four-speed GTi went on sale in Germany in 1976 so the German market got its hands on this...

  • VW Touran 1.9 TDi (2006) review

    Price:  £17,982

    24 November 2006 by Richard Yarrow

    I think 'new' might be stretching the truth a bit. The front lights are clearly new, but what else has changed? In truth, not a great deal. Those lamps have been reshaped to resemble those of the Eos...

  • VW GX3 concept (2006) review

    04 September 2006 by Georg Kacher

    What planet’s this from? It looks like a mash up between a Lotus Elise, Ariel Atom and Reliant Robin… This is Volkswagen’s GX3 – a minimalist three wheeler that combines a superbike’s blistering...

  • VW Eos 2.0T (2006) review

    Price:  £19,370

    31 July 2006 by Georg Kacher

    A drop top VW - how desirable. I take it the people's convertible is back? Yes and no. True, the Eos is from the people's car maker and it effectively replaces the old Golf cabriolet. But that...
