Just when you think the current Golf can'tbe bettered, Volkswagen goes and releases a new Golf.

Volkswagen's mighty Golf goes from strengthto strength in both sales figure terms and performance.

The manual gearbox is an examplefor all other manufacturers in how shifting should feel, while the DSG shifts smoothlyand with precision.

The all new 2.

0-litre four cylinder engineis turbocharged and churns out an impressive 162kW and 350Nm.

Given the performance onoffer, fuel consumption well below 7 litres/100km is seriously impressive for what is stillthe quintessential hot hatch.

On the open road, the engine delivers itsbest in effortless fashion, powering the hatch along at highway speeds without ever raisinga sweat.

Around town at city speeds, the Golf is equally at home.

The suspension and handling have a real track-tunedfeel to them and can be a little harsh over really nasty surfaces.

Golf GTI's cabin delivers that signature feelingof solidity and build quality with near faultless ergonomics and comfort.

If you're looking for reasons not to buy aGolf GTI, you'll struggle to find them after taking a close look at the new Mark VII.

2013 Australia’s Best Cars – Best Sports Car $50k to $100k – BMW M135i – test and review

BMW has made it six wins in a row for thehigh-performance offering among its 1 Series range.

Such is the competence of its design and functionqualities and on road prowess, that the M135i, metaphorically speaking, took the chequeredflag after starting towards the back of the grid as an average to below-average valuefor money proposition.

The M135i is absolutely single-minded in theway it goes in pursuit of peak power of 235kW at 5800rpm and beyond to a 7000rpm redline.

All the while, the big inline six-cylinder entertains with induction noise and a snarlingexhaust soundtrack.

Peak torque is a brutish 450Nm.

Driving Experience Control works superbly,as does the Variable Sports Steering, which gains weight and directness as speeds increase.

Indeed, The ride quality, meantime, is not bone-jarringbrittle.

The concept of putting power to the groundthrough the rear wheels, leaving the front wheels to simply point and steer, might besimple, but in cars like this it makes for the purest of driving experiences.

The standard braking package is M Sport, incorporatingfour-piston fixed calipers on the front axle and two-piston fixed callipers at the rear,and works indefatigably.

To use the Aussie vernacular, the BMW M135iis a 'good thing'.
