The Volkswagen Golf is a car. But it is not the only car that is a Volkswagen Golf.
The Golf GTI Clubsport is a 265 horsepower hot hatch that can also give you 290 horses for ten seconds on overboost. Evo went to Portugal to see what’s it like, but unfortunately, it seems that America is not getting any of these über GTIs.
Volkswagen never turned the mark 2 Golf into an official Group B rally car, but somebody in Austria corrected that mistake.
Now that September is in full force, we can take a moment to reminisce on August, which is yet another month when Volkswagen tried to make the Golf seem more successful than it really is.
Meet the Seat Leon X-Perience, the Spanish brand’s lifted all-wheel drive offering that’s essentially the same car as the VW SportWagen Alltrack America is getting next year. Here’s what you can expect from VW’s little off-road wagon.
The Volkswagen e-Golf is, at its core, a Volkswagen Golf. That's not some metaphorical, figurative thing either. This isn't about "the platform," or "the feel" – it is a Volkswagen Golf. Except for the fact that it's powered by electricity. And I love the electricness of it, but the problem is the Golfiness.
If you're like most car geeks, you know that Volkswagen has a thing for winds when it comes to naming cars. Sirocco is a Mediterranean wind, Passat is a trade wind, Jetta refers to the Jet stream, and Golf is what the Germans call the Gulf Stream. But get this — shocking new revelations suggest the Golf was actually…
It's a Volkswagen Golf wagon with permanent all-wheel drive, higher ground clearance and underside protection, hill descent assist and a choice of gas or diesel engines. In other words, pretty much all you need in a family car.
Despite putting out (some) power, the engine in this little Volkswagen Golf in Poland has one of the lowest operating temperatures of any out there, at only 98.6° Fahrenheit. Also, it appears to be fueled by cheeseburgers.
The 2015 Volkswagen Golf R has 290 horsepower. The 2015 Volkswagen Golf R 400 has 400 horsepower, and here's how it sounds.
When we first saw the ridiculously powerful Volkswagen Golf R 400 Concept, there was only one word to describe it: Zounds! Also, possibly "gadzooks." But while VW refuses to confirm anything yet, one word looks like it's leaping out now – real.
The Volkswagen Golf Plus has been offered since the Mark V in 2005 or so, but Americans have never had to consider it and wonder why anyone would need a taller, longer Golf hatchback instead of a wagon or a Tiguan. VW thinks it's a pretty big hit in other countries, though, so they've launched the Golf Sportsvan…
This might not be a revelation to some of you, but others who forget the Golf, one of the world's best-selling cars, is still marketed in the US, might be a little more surprised.
Say, remember that 736-horsepower Volkswagen Golf from a few months ago? It's okay... I guess. I say that now because I just found one that's even more psychotic.
In our post-carpocalyptic and post-paper world, truly amazing auto show press reveals are a rarity. Rightfully so. Why spend tens of millions of dollars to unveil a car to a group of balding, morbidly-obese, and irrelevant auto "press" when it's already been seen online by an audience a thousand times larger and more…
The Volkswagen GTI is an enthusiast favorite for a lot of reasons. One of the biggest ones is that at the end of the day, it's a Golf. It's comfortable, practical, and it can haul all your stuff as well as ass. But for some people, the moderate power boost in the GTI over the standard Golf just isn't enough. Some…
