The selling British version of the Volkswagen Golf is the 1.6 TDI diesel. Crouch drives it.

Ten Second

The Volkswagen Golf is back for its go around and it’s a formula tried, tested and popular British buyers. This car feature a chassis with a of two rear suspension set ups, but the humbler of the two you’ll find on models like the 105PS 1.6 TDI on test here. Still, buyers seem to like it. find out why.


six model generations, 38 years and 29 cars, it would perhaps be a surprising if Volkswagen didn’t the hang of building Golfs by You certainly wouldn’t expect radical or off-beat with the Mk 7 and, without wishing to a cliffhanger of a plot line, so it This is a well-honed formula works. Why mess with it? So how we come to this point, incrementally bigger, sleeker and sophisticated take on an established Its predecessor, the Golf Mk 6, had been one of the successful Golf models. in 2008, it built on the foundations of the Mk 5, better safety, better but a lower build cost. The Mk 7 look like another of that vehicle, but despite the styling, it’s completely from the ground up but still a Golf. And it’s in the 105PS TDI diesel form we look at that most British-bound will be ordered.

Driving Experience

Get under the of this latest Volkswagen and you’ll find a redesigned MQB that’s a lot stiffer and is almost customisable. Interior refinement has enormously, with very road noise filtering into the cabin. Tyre and engine sounds have been muted to the sort of you’d have expected a Phateon limousine not so long The 105PS 1.6-litre TDI diesel I tried is far quieter than I its direct predecessor being. the engine’s not much different the main development work on it into creating an eco-conscious BlueMotion version. Still, in form, it’s a unit acceptably rapid for its modest in life, with 62mph rest in the ordinary model I occupying 10.7s on the way to 109mph, 250Nm of torque to zip you through the gearbox. The ride suffers a with the adoption of a less torsion beam rear for lower order Golf like this one, but you really feel it over poor surfaces or when on hard. On the move, there’s a XDS electronic differential lock for corner turn-in and, on all but the trim level, a so-called profile selection’ system. four available programmes ‘Eco’, ‘Sport’, ‘Normal’ and — alter the throttle and engine management to suit chosen driving style. Add the ACC Adaptive Chassis Control which enables you to tweak the to suit the road and your and there’s a fifth ‘Comfort’

Golf mk2

This clever MQB modular chassis not offers Volkswagen the scope to run models spun off it down the production line, it also weight right back, that this Golf Mk 7 back the years. In fact not significantly weightier than a Mk 4, boasting massively improved features and more interior It’s miles bigger too. The driving position is unfeasibly adjustable and unlike family hatches, you can get properly down in the car if required. The sheer of steering wheel rake and means that both and taller drivers will little difficulty achieving a seating position. The cabin’s a wider than before, helps with elbow and there’s also a bit more leg room which is a welcome The boot measures a hefty is well shaped and features a low height. An expert will you that Volkswagen could cut costs further and offered boot space if they had to a cheaper torsion beam suspension: well actually, have — well on versions anyway. As I suggested lower order variants this 1.6 TDI are fitted with an torsion beam rear so you’ll need to buy a more Golf model to get the expensive and multi link rear That’s a clear sign of

Market and Model

Pricing from around £20,000 for the version of this 1.6 TDI that will want — a £655 saving if you’re to put up with three doors. All models come with airbags, including a driver’s bag, five three-point belts, ABS braking with ESP control, a clever XDS electronic lock to get the power down out of corners and ISOFIX preparation for two child seats. The entry-level Media’ system includes a colour touchscreen, a DAB digital a CD player, what Volkswagen an ‘MDI interface’ (for iPod or MP3 player), Bluetooth preparation and audio streaming for the stereo. Also standard is air conditioning, among a host of features. Moving up from S to SE of course brings more, standard ADC ‘Automatic Distance with Front Assist’ (to you keep a safe distance the car in front on the highway) and ‘City Braking’ which will you to low speed collision risks and can bring the vehicle to a complete if necessary. There’s also a Alert System (that’ll you if your reactions indicate you’re getting drowsy), preventative occupant protection can pre-tension the seatbelts and put up the windows if the ESP the car is about to skid), rain-sensitive an automatically dimming rear-view and a dusk sensor. A black grille with chrome and 16-inch alloy wheels the exterior.

Cost of Ownership

One of Volkswagen’s key priorities with seventh-generation Golf was to reclaim its as one of the most efficient family a position it had been struggling to in the latter years of Mk 6 production. So how has it about achieving these gains? The big one is a weight loss Then there are aerodynamic lower internal friction in the and optimised gearing on not only the and six-speed manuals but also the six and DSG twin clutch units. All new models — both and petrol — come a Stop/Start system as standard, with battery regeneration. All and good. What about the The 1.6 TDI returns a combined cycle of 74.3mpg and emits just in the process, so if you’re collecting station loyalty points, toaster you’re saving up for be yours until somewhere in the of 2019. And you’ll do even if you specify this 1.6-litre TDI in 110PS BlueMotion’ form, in guise this car is capable of 88.3mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions of 85g/km.

The Volkswagen Mk 7 is an interesting vehicle and it’s not quite as up-front as you expect. The specification torsion-beam suspension fitted to less powerful like this 1.6 TDI diesel is a step backwards but it’s one many buyers shopping the lower order trim won’t care very about. In most other the Golf forges inexorably Less weight and more is always a good combination and a of efficiency measures have impressive steps forward in the f running costs. You’ll get the benefit of that if you specify car in 1.6 TDI BlueMotion form The styling is but includes a number of interesting cabin quality is well up to par and values look promising. In it’s a Golf. A more smarter Golf, but still a Reassuringly so.
