VW Golf Buyers Guide

VW Golf: the car that sets the standard for all other types of family hatchbacks in the market. The Golf has been around for several years now, and Volkswagen has only managed to perfect this simple, unassuming car since its conception. To date, it is recognised as being the top-selling hatchback in Europe. It has reaped rewards throughout the years, including two European Car of the Year awards, World Car of the Year and others. These recognitions and the long-standing production of the Golf attest to its stature the best car in the segment.

Pros

Buyers will be happy to know that all Golf engines are turbocharged. The 1.2 litre and 1.4 litre petrols come in two variants each. The diesel choices include a 1.6 with 103bhp and a 2.0 with 148bhp. For a small family car, these choices deliver the best possible performance without sacrificing too much on consumption, giving the owners huge savings in the long run at most 99g/km. The suspension allows a firm but not too stiff ride, resulting in the perfect balance of body control and comfort. Cabin noises are also at a bare minimum.

Inside the car, the cabin and dash layout and design do not disappoint. Drivers will get maximum comfort because of highly supportive seats and other adjustment possibilities. Visibility is also clear, and the dash is very handy for quick use. Safety is also at a high point with the Golf. All trims are equipped with a knee airbag, twin front, side and curtain airbags, and stability control. Deadlocks and other locking systems are also included as a standard. Higher trim levels are also given a City Emergency Braking system that stops the car from colliding with other vehicles and objects.

Passengers are in for a treat because the VW Golf’s rear seats can accommodate 3 people comfortably. When it comes to equipment, all trims get DAB radio, air conditioning and Bluetooth connectivity.

Cons

The advantages of owning a Golf may far outweigh its disadvantages, but for the sake of making informed decisions, buyers should also know the faults of the Golf. Perhaps one big setback about this car is that it is not inexpensive. Going for mid- to top-of-the-line trim levels also means having to pay more to get more appealing equipment and features.

Drivers may also find minor handling, comfort and practicality issues. The cheaper Golf models may have a suspension that isn’t as smooth as its other counterparts. The 1.6 diesel variant may also give off too much vibration on the cabin. Compared to its rivals, the Golf’s interior may not look as classy, and boot space is not as spacious as other hatchbacks in the market. Still, all these are a matter of comparison; the Golf still delivers adequately for its size.

No other car comes quite close to the VW Golf, and the many recognitions and advantages of owning this car prove it. While owning one does have its disadvantages, these pale in comparison to its many advantages.

A History Of The VW Golf

        One of the oldest car models the German car manufacturing brand Volkswagen has in its production line is the Volkswagen Golf. The VW Golf is an automobile which has been in production for almost 4 decades now, with its first introduction dating all the way back to 1974. The Golf is classified as a B-Segment, or a supermini vehicle. It is currently in its 7th generational change right now, and is still one of the most popular supermini models out there in the market today. In the United States, the Golf is also known as the Volkswagen Rabbit, and in Mexico, it is dubbed as the Volkswagen Caribe.

        The Volkswagen Golf is the successor the Volkswagen Beetle. In this context, the Beetle gave its success to the right successor. The Golf was given the title of the “All The Car You’ll Ever Need Car of the Year 2012” award last year by the car magazine Top Gear. Though surely not the only award the Golf has won (the Golf Mk3 won the European Car Of The Year Award back in 1992) in its whole existence of 39 years, and certainly not the only award it was nominated for, it is certainly one of the most illustrious ones it has attained.
