Can you believe it’s been 45 years since the Volkswagen Golf first rolled out? Today the WhichCar Weekly team discusses the great, great, great, great, great-grandchild of that original 1974 model.
The eighth-generation Golf brings a whole heap of new features including far more electrification options, but Scotty thinks he has the most interesting Mk8 morsel.
Returning to the WCW studio, Dave ‘Bocconcini’ Bonnici weighs in with the most interesting machines that have just made their debut at the Tokyo Motor Show. Among the fascinating fresh hardware there were a few standouts including Mitsubishi’s Mi-Tech concept and the Mazda MX-30. Hit play to find out the common theme at Japan’s biggest show of 2019.
Later, we chat about why Scott is still reeking of tortured tyres and all the fun the MOTOR team had at this year’s Performance Car of the Year or, P-COTY as its friends refer to it.
Scott won’t tell us which of the ten models took out Australia’s most coveted performance car award, but he did explain the process that decides the victor. He says it’s hard work but he’s not getting any sympathy from Dan and Dave.
