VOLKSWAGEN car reviews
Volkswagen Jetta 2.0TDI BlueMotion GT Saloon 4dr Diesel DSG (Start/Stop) (109 g/km, 108 bhp) Saloon (2014 - ) expert review
The Jetta’s problem is not that it’s a bad car, but rather that other (much better) cars from within the VW range really show it up in every single area. Next to them, it feels dated and more than a little rough around the edges when it comes to refinement, ride, and build quality. Yes, the Passat is a little dearer, but it’s also worth every penny.

Volkswagen Touareg 3.0 TDI BlueMotion Escape SUV 5dr Diesel Tiptronic (start/stop) (193 g/km, 242 bhp) SUV (2014 - ) expert review
The Touareg is a very competent car, but it competes with some seriously impressive rivals. The big VW doesn’t have the on-road finesse of a BMW X5 or Porsche Cayenne, neither does it have the off-road prowess of a Land Rover Discovery. What’s more, it doesn’t play the middle-ground role as well as some other big SUVs. So, while it does a solid job in most areas, we can’t see much of a reason to recommend it over the best-in-class.

Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0TDI BMT Hatchback 3dr Diesel Manual (109 g/km, 148 bhp) Hatchback (2014 - ) expert review
The revised Volkswagen Scirocco looks good, and drives just as well as before; but newer coupe rivals now outperform it in several of our key testing areas

Volkswagen Passat 1.6TDI (BMT) SE Business Saloon 4dr Diesel Manual (105 g/km, 118 bhp) Saloon (2014 - ) expert review
The Volkswagen Passat is a fine family car, and even better company car, with a sparkling interior, a smooth, comfortable driving experience and low CO2 emissions that mean affordable running costs for fleet drivers.

Volkswagen Passat 2.0TDI (BMT) SE Estate 5dr Diesel Manual (107 g/km, 148 bhp) Estate (2014 - ) expert review
The Volkswagen Passat is a fine family estate car, and even better company car, with a sparkling interior, a smooth, comfortable driving experience and low CO2 emissions that mean affordable running costs for fleet drivers.

The Golf GTI is probably the most impressively balanced hot hatch on the market today. It’s handsome, fast and splendid fun to drive, yet it’s also practical, comfortable and comparatively cheap to run.

As a jack-of-all-trades, the VW Golf GTD is second to none. It’s fast, efficient, stylish and practical, while still managing to entertain through the bends and be a comfortable motorway cruiser or urban commuter. Still want that GTI?

Volkswagen Golf 1.6TDI SE Estate 5dr Diesel Manual (102 g/km, 104 bhp) Estate (2012 - ) expert review
The Volkswagen Golf Estate has grown in size and now offers more space than some cars from the class above. It also has a class-leading interior and great image.

The ageing New Beetle has been replaced, and now the Cabriolet is here, with an excellent folding soft top and zippy, efficient engines. The interior is top notch too.

Volkswagen Golf 1.4 ACT GT Hatchback 5dr Petrol Manual (112 g/km, 138 bhp) Hatchback (2012 - ) expert review
When the small family car market is strewn with forgotten models and new pretenders, the Volkswagen Golf endures and improves. This seventh generation Golf may not be radical but it is rarefied, being bigger, lighter, safer and more fuel efficient than its predecessor to help broaden appeal even further.
