2020 Volkswagen Passat First Look

Volkswagen’s Passat hasn’t been a huge player in the American mid-size market but VW isn’t giving up on us. Instead they have given the Passat they designed especially for America a redesign for 2020 with a new exterior and interior to bring things up to date and give it a fresher and more luxurious look, […]

2018 Volkswagen Golf R Review

VW’s Golf R (or Golfer as I kept calling it) is not the fastest hot hatch in America, nor is it the best handling or arguably the best value. But if my cash were on the line, it is the hatch I’d buy. Why? Let’s explore that. Note: The 5.6 second 0-60 time quoted was […]

2018 Compact Crossover Off Road Comparison

Thanks to an event called the Trail Trek Tour I had the opportunity to test a variety of every-day crossovers on some back-country trails in Virginia. The results were about as I expected but there were a few crossovers that did better than I thought. Why no Subaru? Why no Rogue? Why no X? The […]

Thanks to a massive increase in size, the […]

2017 VW Passat Review

Volkswagen’s Passat used to be America’s discount Audi but that left the people’s car brand without a direct competitor to the Camry and Accord. In stepped the new Passat in 2012 which changed everything. Instead of selling the same Passat in America and Europe VW decided to harmonize development between China and America sending us […]

2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack Review

The off-road wagon segment has always been small but there’s a new entry for 2017 from Volkswagen in the form of the raised Golf wagon. With an additional inch of ground clearance, a dual clutch transmission and some go-anywhere body cladding, the Alltrack is exactly what would happen if Volvo and Subaru engineers got together […]

2015 Volkswagen GTI Review 2-Door – In 4K

Although GTI sales are on an upward trend, the American hot hatch is a rare breed as there are just three options. We have the aging Ford Focus ST, and a new pair of hatches from Germany: the Volkswagen GTI and the MINI Cooper S. (Yes MINI fans, I’m calling the MINI German.) The last […]
