The all-new 2015 Volkswagen Golf starts at $18,815 in limited-run Launch Edition trim. Shown is the all-electric e-Golf, due later this year.

In this case, being “over par” is a good thing.

Most Volkswagens have long occupied a gap between “regular” and “premium” nameplates in the areas of cost and refinement, and the redesigned 2015 Golf, GTI, and new electrified e-Golf are no exception. The only break from tradition is that there isn’t as much of a cost differential as there used to be. In fact, some model prices have come down significantly, despite the fact that their list of standard equipment has been lengthened and fuel economy has been improved.

1988 Toyota Corolla FX16 GT-S

1988 Toyota Corolla FX16 GT-S

Cheap Wheels

Note: The following story was excerpted from the October 2018 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

If our readers were asked to rank Toyota Corolla traits, we’d guess sportiness and enthusiast interest would fall pretty far down the resulting list. Still, there have been Corollas capable of piquing a cheap-wheeler’s curiosity, and we think the 1987-88 FX16 GT-S “hot hatch” is one of the cars from this subset.

Note: The following story was excerpted from the August 2018 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

If you’re a “hot-hatch” fan in America, these days your choices have largely been limited to the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Golf R, along with the Ford Focus ST and Focus RS. Of course, there are also various speedy Subarus, along with the Honda Civic Si coupe and sedan. Not that there’s anything wrong with any of those, but if you’re the type of enthusiast who can’t wait to pick up the next issue of EVO magazine, you’re certainly aware of all the fantastic over-the-top hot hatches the Brits get to drive but you can’t buy. Why is it we always want what we cannot have?

Classic Ads From 1985

1985 Buick Electra

Which of the following events was more jarring? The addition of Elmo to the cast of Sesame Street, or the introduction of a front-wheel-drive Buick Electra? Both events, coincidentally, took place in 1985, and both events were met with a certain amount of grumbling.
