    We are now in the eighth generation of VW’s hatchback Golf. Introduced in 2022, the latest iteration looks incredibly sharp comes with a redesigned interior and a host of comfort and tech features. While you used to be able to spec a Golf in a more basic format, these days, it’s only available in GTI…

    Road trips are a time-honored tradition here in the States. Well, they could also be elsewhere, but I don’t live there. The week this 2024 VW Atlas arrived to test, I had just purchased a new vehicle (more on that soon). As excited as I was to take it on a road trip, it came…

    The Volkswagen Jetta is now in its seventh generation. Seven! I don’t really remember the first gen Jetta (A1) but it was actually the best selling European car in North America. I guess that was relevant based on what was available at the time, but I can say for certain that I remember the second…

    So, this is a little awkward, I’m not sure I’ve ever tested a car that I know is about to end production. Volkswagen has confirmed that after eight years of production, 2024 will be the final year of their Arteon sedan. However, this is still 2023, and you still have time to consider whether this…

    The R-badged version of the Volkswagen Golf is turning 20 years old this year, which means they launched the Mk4 R32 way back in 2003! It was always a bit of an odd duck in the VW lineup sitting above the GTI and featuring a bigger engine and AWD. For the 2012 model year the…

    Howdy hoons, it’s me Will, and I’m back with more new car reviews. I’ve been on a crossover bender, there was Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron, the Toyota Venza, and now they sent me this VW ID.4 AWD Pro S. This is my second go in the all-electric ID.4, I spent a week with a 2021…

    Hey, do you guys like hatchbacks? Me too, which is good because the front page here at Hooniverse now has two red, relatively hot four-door hatchbacks. Fresh off of the 2023 Mazda Mazda3 AWD Premium Plus review this Golf GTI Autobahn got delivered for a week of driving fun. It’s about $4,000 more than the…

    I reviewed my last Volkswagen Tiguan (German pronunciation: “fɔlksˌvaːgŋ̍ ˈtiːɡu̯aːn”) back in November of 2020 and came away with a resounding “I dig it”. Part of the second generation that launched in 2018, the Tiguan was the smallest SUV of the bunch at the time, coming in under the Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport. As…

    wanted this one to be really good, and the driving experience of the 2022 Volkswagen GTI is good. The exterior style is nice, the new display screens look great, and the price is still good for what you get here. But the user experience with the infotainment is rather poor… and that is a big…

    I’m going to do something I’ve never done, and that is post a review…without any of my one photos. I’m an accomplished photographer, in that OEMs have commented on my social media posts positively. Hey, it’s an accomplishment, shut up. But when my iPhone crapped the bed back in August, I somehow lost every single…
