VWs are mostly solid, responsive, and fun-to-drive cars, with a more premium feel than their competitors. They typically have agile handling, a firm and comfortable ride, supportive seats, and good fit and finish. The Golf is one of our favorite compact cars to drive, and the GTI is a fun, affordable, and sporty hatchback. Atlas and Tiguan have proven competitive, and a new Atlas Cross Sport further revitalizes the product line. Almost the entire line comes standard with forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking. Reliability is mostly below par, especially for the SUVs.
