How handsome is the car on this page, hey? Look at its chiselled jaw, those sparkling eyes and the functional interior… but is it any good to drive?
Fresh on the heels of my last anecdote-laden review, this trendy Vee Double You gave me plenty of chances to load this article with pleasant stories.
More expensive is always the better, right?
To answer in short: No. Ask me what I would purchase with the odd R650,000 and I will without a doubt choose the Volkswagen Golf GTi or even Golf R. These two models are sublime and the ideal small family package for those more inclined to have a heavy right foot.
Is Volkswagen on the wrong track with the idea of a luxury sedan? No, we think everybody else may be.
Volkswagen se kunswerk
Na sy bekendstelling in 2018 het die splinternuwe Volkswagen Arteon die voertuigmark met ambisie aangegryp. Nie net lyk dit heeltemal anders as ander Volkswagens in die huidige lyn nie, maar is dit ook veel meer eksklusief, met etlike herinneringe aan die Passat, CC en selfs die Volkswagen Phaeton.
It’s a well-known fact that Volkswagen of South Africa built a modernized version of the original Golf (“Mark 1”) right up to the point where it couldn’t cope with safety and emissions standards. The Citi Golf lived from 1984 to 2009 as a youthful and affordable mode of transport in southern Africa. NamWheels gives you some details:
Sprokies(kar) vir ‘n stadskind
Die nuwe Volkswagen Polo R-line is pure pret. Vir enigiemand wat hou van ‘n ruim stadsmotor met genoeg krag om die langpad Noorde toe kaf te draf, is dié nuwe Polo ‘n goeie opsie. Vanuit ‘n praktiese oogpunt, is dit ‘n betroubare en veilige motor, wat met die Bluemotion tegnologie sorg vir effektiewe brandstofverbruik.
The new line
I don’t get it. Those words may be laced with ignorance but in my case, I plead sheer and utter confusion, your honour. Not since I drove some low-slung quad-pipe monster has a test car garnered this amount of positive attention. Young kids, Moms and Dads, even the grandparents gawk at the new Volkswagen Tiguan.
The smoother coincidence
Recent events have shoved the giant car maker Volkswagen onto its back feet but the colossus is using this situation to leap up with new focus and new products. Although it’s probably coincidence, their timing couldn’t have been better to introduce the new-generation Passat in southern Africa.
The classy look
Hi there. I can only imagine that you’re reading this text because you googled Tegel, stumbled across it by accident or are a hard-core fan of this car. You see, if our local sales charts are anything to go by, the Volkswagen Passat doesn’t exactly sell in vast quantities.
