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. Altas and redesigned Tiguan have proven competitive, and a new Jetta further revitalizes the product line. Reliability varies significantly across the line.
These prices on cars and SUVs recommended by Consumer Reports are worthy of fireworks.
So far we like the upscale driving experience, but not the harsh engine sound.
Check out these safe and reliable models well-suited to new drivers.
