Volkswagen Golf

 

The Volkswagen Golf has been around since 1974 and we are now on the 8th Series.  It has a justified reputation for being reliable, well built and desirable. The latest Golf is evolution personified, it retains the distinctive Golf look but series 8 sees massive advancement in technology.  New trims: Life, Style and R-Line.  Two 1.5 litre petrol offering 130bhp which can reach 62 mph in 9.1 seconds and to a top speed of 130 miles per hour, it offers economy of 56.5 mpg as a six speed manual or 57.6 as a 7 speed dual clutch Automatic (DSG), this engine is also available with 148 bhp which does not dent the economy but reaches 62mph in a hot hatch time of 8.3 seconds.  The two diesel units are 2.0 litre 115bhp only with 6 manual gears and the 2.0 litre 150bhp, both are quiet and smooth and offer an excellent blend of power and economy. The New Seat Leon is the sister car and offers better looks and value this quarter.

R-Line trim removed from Scheme on 7th May due to production delays. Full Golf Pricelist here
