Top^From 2010 to Now

Make: Volkswagen

Model: Tiguan Allspace

Released: Aug 2018

In mid 2018, Volkswagen launched the Allspace version of the Tiguan.
Maintaining the same powertrains as the Tiguan short wheelbase, key visual differences included 215mm of extra length (to 4701mm), a corresponding wheelbase stretch (by 109mm to 2790mm), and completely different bodywork aft of the B-pillar that brings with it wider rear doors and C-pillar side glass as well as 106mm of more rear overhang.
Moreover, a raised bonnet (to make the SUV more aggressive-looking for the US market, which only takes the Allspace version in both five and seven-seater set-ups) and more chrome in the grille were also applied. Weight penalties are in the region of 130kg-plus, give or take.

VOLKSWAGEN reskinned its long-lived Transporter range in time for 2016, bringing lower prices, an improved and more car-like cabin, available advanced driver safety tech, and additional variants into the fold.

Discontinued: Mar 2017

Top^From 1990 to 1999

Make: Volkswagen

Model: Bora

Released: Dec 1999

Discontinued: Jan 2006

The fourth-generation Golf spawned a record number of off-shoots for Audi, Seat, Skoda and of course VW - with the Bora being a four-door sedan version of VW's top-seller that proved big in North America but decidedly less so everywhere else.

Model: Polo

Released: Oct 1996

Australia missed the 1970s Mk1 and 1980s Mk2 Polo light cars, but received the third-generation models from late '96. Few expected the $20,000-plus Barina-sized VW to work, but the Polo carved a small niche for itself in this country.

Model: Vento

Released: Jun 1995

Discontinued: Dec 1996

Few Australians warmed to the VW Vento - the four-door sedan version of the patchy Golf Mk3. Ungainly styling and very high prices put most punters off. At least its '99 Bora replacement was much easier on the eyes.
