    Every year Volkswagen lets its apprentices loose to create a car or two for the massive Worthersee show in Austria.

    Sold In One: Golf GTi Clubsport S

    The Golf GTi is the undisputed boss of the hot-hatch world. When the Mk1 version hit the streets way back in 1976 it blew people’s minds. It was (for the time) staggeringly fast. It was sharp, direct, it was ludicrous in comparison to everything else on the road. Rich in technology such as fuel injection […] More

    VW Golf GTi Clubsport S breaks Nurburgring record

    The new VW Golf GTi Clubsport S is now officially the fastest front-wheel-drive car ever to lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife, setting a scarcely believable time of 7min 49.21secs.

    Most powerful ever VW Golf GTi confirmed

    Volkswagen has confirmed that next week it will launch the most powerful VW Golf GTi there has ever been, the 306bhp Clubsport S.

    Brilliant though it is, there’s no denying the evergreen Volkswagen Golf GTi has been left behind in the power stakes recently.

    Quick Spin: Volkswagen Golf GTE

    To be honest, I don’t really know what to make of the hybrid-powered Volkswagen Golf GTE. Let’s deal with the nuts and bolts. The Golf GTE is powered by a 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine producing 148bhp and a 101bhp electric motor. Running in parallel, they make 201bhp and 258lb/ft of torque, not too far off […] More

    Volkswagen Golf GTD Estate to be unveiled at Geneva

    The Golf Estate has always been an eminently sensible family car. But hardly exciting. So Volkswagen has decided it wants to turn its mid-size wagon’s rather staid image around.

    It’s the Volkswagen Golf R Estate

    There are few absolute truths in life, but here are two: the hugely capable, understated Volkswagen Golf R is the coolest hot hatch currently on sale; and fast estates are really cool.
