Volkswagen car reviews, road tests, photos & videos
Volkswagen built its first car, the Beetle, in 1945; with the Type 2 transporter the company stuck with the same tiny model range until well into the 1960s. When the Volkswagen Passat arrived in 1973 it marked a new era for the company, which has always sat between the mainstream and premium sectors.
The really big news for the marque was the Volkswagen Golf of 1974, which would become an icon - and especially when developed into the Golf GTi. Another brand which Volkswagen introduced in the early 1970s is the VW Polo - and once again it's still with us, alongside the Touran, Touareg, Phaeton and Fox.
