2017 Volkswagen Golf R Test Drive Review

The hatchback isn’t just for hauling kids and groceries. For decades, automakers have transformed a seemingly modest form of transportation into rapid transit by making the people movers look more aggressive, sharpening their handling, and adding power. In doing that, automakers such as Honda, Ford, Mazda, and MINI created what is known as the “hot hatch.” Of course, we can’t mention the hot hatch without also bringing up Volkswagen. The German company has been known to make a fire-breathing five-door from time to time. In fact, on its website, Volkswagen…

2017 Volkswagen Beetle #PinkBeetle Test Drive Review

The distinctively shaped Volkswagen Beetle has long been known as ‘the people’s car.’ The model obviously lives up to that distinction with more than 21.5 million units sold worldwide.

2017 Volkswagen AllTrack TSI S Test Drive Review

In some ways, the 2017 Volkswagen AllTrack TSI S is almost a bit of a throwback — in a great way. Because in an era when the birth of even a single child seems to automatically send new parents rushing to AutoNation to check out the biggest SUVs they can find, the practicality of an driver-focused, all-wheel drive wagon with restrained proportions seems to be almost invisible on too many buyer’s radars. And frankly, that’s a shame. Now, there’s no question that unibody construction, modern traction control systems, and bevy…

2017 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible Dune Test Drive Review

“Summer anytime.” That’s the tagline Volkswagen uses in a commercial for its desert-inspired Beetle Dune. The spot shows a loving couple driving out to the beach with their sunroof open. They splash around and frolic in the water, smiling the entire time. As they walk back onto the sand wrapped in their towels, they walk past another couple wearing winter parkas and knit caps – and bewildered expressions on their faces. We were lucky. Volkswagen lent us a Beetle Convertible Dune, which is a new trim line for the drop-top…
