German engineering has long been associated with well-built and reliable cars. However, Volkswagen reliability is something that many people are in two minds about. So, how does the people's car perform when it comes to reliability? We know that the cars are well-built and they have some of the most popular vehicles on the market today, but are they reliable? In the latest article in our updated reliability series we answer all the questions about many of the popular models that the well-known German brand produce.
The smiley new Volkswagen e-Up! Hatchback might be a bit unfortunately named (hey up!), but it’s based on one of the most popular city cars around. It’s a lot like the standard VW Up!, except it’s quieter and cheaper to run. That said, it’s also a lot more expensive to buy and depreciates badly. Is it worth making the switch from petrol to electricity? OSV takes a closer look at what it’s all about with our 2018 Volkswagen e-Up! Hatchback review.
4×4 owners have had a hard time of it in recent years – thanks to the fact that SUVs are all too often singled out for criticism on the green front. The VW Touareg has never been brash – which means it has always seemed to escape the worst of that criticism.

Unlike its predecessor, the Amarok is rough and rugged just as its name implies. In addition, it also provides the creature comforts demanded by today’s truck buyer.
The German-built VW Amarok 2014 stands out in the sea of Asian pickup trucks that dominate the UK market. VW has produced 4×4 passenger cars for many years, so producing a four-by truck was a natural choice. In addition to its off-road prowess, the VW Amarok 2014 is economical, practical and can haul whatever you need.
