The new VW Jetta 1.6 TDI Comfortline

The Accountant.


So, it’s totally simple. If the following words move you, you should buy a new Jetta TDI if you have the means. 6.5l per 100km. Oh and that’s not an EU combined-cycle claim no, that’s much lower. This is a real-world average on mostly highway averaging 160km/h in a very, very strong headwind. Where the modern “efficient” petrol turbo will get about 11.

Drive Test – VW Passat 1.8 TSI Comfortline Manual

Posted by on Jul 4, 2011 in Road Tests

Intelligent stealth.


Volkswagen continues to get more and more indistinct in its product lineup – there’s the whole Golf/Scirocco/Audi A3 battle going on for instance, which has suddenly gotten even stranger with the arrival at last of the R versions to take over from the ageing S3, which uses just about the exact same power parts.

If you’re a normal, level-headed, working class adult, however, a hatchback just isn’t quite the image you want to project. A bit brash, a touch compact, and definite whiffs of first-caritis about them even if the price no longer reflects that so much. And a Jetta is really just a Golf with a boot…

So, previously, you would have had to stump up the extra cash and launch yourself into the territory of the prestige Germans. Except now, VW has the new Passat.

Drive Road Test: VW Cross Polo 1.6TDI Comfortline

Posted by on Nov 8, 2010 in Road Tests

By Steve Allison

The VW Cross Polo is without doubt a cool car, well if you’re between 18 and 30 anyway. At my age, well people just kept looking at me as if to say, “Hey Grandad, it doesn’t suit you.” Here at the office, we were calling it the angry Polo. Not just a play on the name but in the bright orange of our test car as well as its puffed up look, it resembles a Polo that is holding its breath until it gets its own way.

The Cross Polo is a Polo sporting a funky look with plastic cladding, a set of sexy 17 inch wheels and anodized roof rails. The image is more lifestyle than it is off-road. It looks like the sort of car that would be more comfortable transporting surf boards than driving through the depths of the African continent.
