TEST DRIVE: 2012 Golf TDI Wagon

Okay, just be honest with and get this out of the way…when looking at to help us with our mid-life a station wagon isn’t to cut the mustard.  From an aesthetic wagons are rather bland and do to make you think that you again had a full head of and a waistline that didn’t to be coddled by jeans made a bit of give (yup, I’m talking spandex).

While modern wagons will never be amongst the sexiest cars one ever own, that mean that they deserve your attention.  In given their versatility and fuel efficiency over say an SUV or station wagons are a great for most families today.  is the case with the 2012 Golf TDI Wagon which I put through its paces as part of Dadditudes Test Drive .


Truthfully there isn’t a lot that distinguishes one wagon from the next looking at them for the first You won’t necessarily find one has a more aggressive styling the other and wagons are not where designers like to let out their side.

The Golf TDI Wagon brings clean lines to its design.  One gets the sense that car is about function over but having said that, I call it unattractive by any means

Sitting inside for the first one sees a relatively simple and friendly layout.  Interior seems generally ample and are well-designed and comfortable.  One drawback is its lack of headroom.  Taller may need to contort a bit to get in and they may cramped.  One way of perhaps compensating for on the Highline (or top end) model, is the panoramic sunroof.  It really up wide and offers an almost feel to not only front row but those in the 2 nd row as well.  It honestly is one of the panoramic sunroofs I’ve and experienced.


As with about anything that out of Germany (even though manufactured in Mexico), the Golf drives well.  The handling and of this car is so far removed from the Squire wagons of my youth, almost an insult to compare the There is no feeling of heaviness you sometimes get with bigger or minivans and often I forgot I wasn’t just driving a car.

The Golf TDI (or Turbocharged Injection) Wagon is equipped one of Volkswagen’s renowned diesel This one is a 2.0L 4 cylinder provides 140 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of The Highline model I tested came with a 6-speed Direct Shift Gearbox Tiptronic® and Sport mode.  the combination of the two surprised and disappointed me a bit was how was a noticeable delay whenever I to hit the pedal aggressively.  It almost the feeling of not fully engaging a on a manual and it caused me to adjust how I’d when trying to enter the of traffic from a …

Like all diesels, this one to be a bit noisier than standard however after warming up, I had a hard time noticing I was in a diesel at all.


The best part about a engine is just how good are with respect to fuel and the Golf TDI Wagon is no different.  to Transport Canada estimates, the TDI Wagon will get you 7.0 L/100km and 4.9 L/100km (Hwy).  Reality is about 10 – 15% higher but still darn good for a family While these ratings below the Toyota Prius V . its than say a Mazda CX-5 or a CR-V .

The knock in the past diesel fuel has been it’s dirty, but with new low sulpher diesel fuels the standard and diesel engines are far more efficient than used to be, the old criticisms simply hold true anymore.  personally seen demonstrations of new engines where a cheese is placed around the exhaust and after running the engine for a few the cloth still comes out

Station are designed for families, so it’s no that the Golf TDI Wagon itself up as a great family With 32.8 cubic of cargo capacity and 66.9 feet with the 2 nd row put down, is more than enough for most families.  I was easily to fit six grocery bins into the without dropping the second row and it be easy to fit a couple hockey or a few sets of golf clubs in as well.

I say it’s a good fit for “most” simply because of the fact it seats 5 and not 7 or 8 like it’s minivan or SUV competitors do.  As a of 4, 3 rows for me is an absolute must, so I like the Golf TDI wagon, it wouldn’t meet the needs of my family.


Consistent my earlier analogy that the TDI Wagon is more about versus fashion, there a tonne of stuff for techies to go about.

The Highline version with an upgraded 8 speaker system and Sirrius satellite as well as GPS navigation, Bluetooth and a digital compass.  These are all but have become more the than the exception in automobiles

While station wagons are harder to find in automakers new car those that still offer plenty of pragmatic for most families of today.  As a car they compare favourably SUV’s or minivans for those who less bulk and better economy.

The 2012 Volkswagen Golf TDI is a well-balanced, fuel efficient and choice for families who need over fashion.  The Golf TDI is sensible and sophisticated in its own unique way and quite well how station still have a right to sit other options as a viable of choice for most families of
