    Video footage claiming to be of a Mk8 Golf has emerged showing the rear, sides, and front of the car.  The footage was taken in South Africa and was shared to Tuned Automotive Magazine's Facebook page. The car bears a striking resemblance to another alleged Mk8 previously seen driving around...

    An interesting post from China’s AutoHome surfaced last week, purporting to show the Mk8 Golf sitting in a parking lot. The images show a roughly Golf shaped vehicle with some of the most useless camouflage ever fitted to a test vehicle. Seriously, it’s the Zorro mask of cammo: it covers...

    The facelifted 2018 American Golf R, unlike its European equivalent, will gain no power when it arrives. That means that it will only make 292 hp, instead of the mildly improved 306 hp. That’s according to a new report from Car and Driver  that states that it will be the 2018 Golf that...

    Volkswagen updated the Mk7 Golf earlier this year in Europe (it should come here soon-ish) with more power, tech, and tweaked looks. And as if we weren't excited enough, the company has just released a teaser for the Golf R Performance. Although it's still shrouded in mystery, the video...

    Late last month we reported that the Mk8 Golf GTI would gain a mild hybrid system, now it looks like the same system might replace some diesel Golfs, too. Although VW has stopped offering diesel engines in America, Europe’s taste for diesels means that the automaker can’t just stop offering...

    It's the Newport Folk Festival all over again as the GTI is embracing the Volk revival and going electric. The next generation GTI's traditional gas engine will reportedly be backed by a 48V electrical system. The mild hybrid system will boost performance while improving economy. Set to launch...

    Despite countless news items and the combined will of the VW community, we have the sad duty of reporting that the Volkswagen Golf R400 will not go into production. The project was championed by former R&D chief Heinz-Jakob Neusser, but the project has been canceled following his departure...
