The latest generation of golf is coming to us end-branch.

Propulsion units with light electrification, innovative cabin and quite a bit of technology

Volkswagen Golf is one of the most important cars in the automotive world in recent decades.

The German compact marks, with each new generation, the continuum to which this industry aspires.

Every new golf that was introduced and came here, created a new and different feeling.

This is especially true of cabin technology and feel.

The last generation, does what every golfer before it has done.

The outside look continues to play on those familiar lines, ones that tens of millions of customers have voted for in the past.

Inside there is a real leap sloping in electronic control and nice information screens.

The thing is, it does not feel new.

This impressive demonstration, which the Golf invented, we have already been able to meet in other cars of the Volkswagen Group based on its platform.

Whether in the Skoda Octavia, or in the Seat Leon, this demonstration of up-to-dateness and impressive quality, does not strike with the same intensity.

The reason is the late arrival of golf in our counties, a delay that took away from it the ability to surprise.


The ability to surprise, but not the ability to impress.

The exterior design of the Golf looks familiar and up-to-date in one.

It is quite clear what lies ahead and on the other hand it is still clear that it is something new.

The cabin is very impressive.

Whether it's the seats and driving position, the space, the new controls, the advanced safety systems or the cabin's ability to warn from here and communicate from there.

Tight, pleasant and very high quality package.

During the ride, the model that stood the test (1.5 L, 150 hp) performed quite well.

The mating to a dual-clutch gearbox works efficiently and the lightweight hybrid system mated to the paddle unit improves the situation even more.

The said system works significantly even if not felt.

It actually allows the engine to disconnect while gliding and it does so very frequently.

Frequent but not noticeable, the operation of all components is smooth and very pleasant.

The engine shuts down and turns on without attracting the driver's attention.

The contribution here is in excellent fuel consumption, which during the difficult test days was 14.2 km / l.

Beyond that the current generation of golf offers very mature road customs.

The level of grip is high, the responses are fluent and each component performs its job faithfully.

It does not shine exceptionally well in any of the missions.

The convenience is very good as long as it is not a really broken urban road.

The behavior is good, as long as it is not asked to behave like a GTI.


What's hers

The new Golf is a very impressive car.

There are those for whom this is the automatic compact choice.

This generation offers a very up-to-date packaging for the golfer's familiar ability to convey something true and quality.

The level of equipment along the supply also makes a better impression than before.

In our opinion, the base version is more attractive, with the same general feel and at a significantly affordable price.
