Volkswagen Golf Estate
Wolfsburg is that we were invited to discover the latest best seller Body-derived Golf. A “Volkswagenland” eight out of ten cars badged VW. We discover in the street models as improbable as the pick-up and Taro lorqui workers leaving the factory, they can cheer at the Autostadt, a car museum that resembles an amusement park in the glory of the Volkswagen Group.
The Golf Estate has just slip into the tenuous space remaining between the 5-door Golf , the Golf Plus and Touran , she will succeed in finding its place?
Top of the range?
As the Bora in his time, the SW is positioned as an upscale golf, with a classy and exclusive amenities.
We distinguish the SW due to the high grille reminiscent of the R32 and the chrome strips that highlight just the shield. For the rest of the game before it is a Golf V.
In profile, the glass area is framed by a chrome strip, we appreciate the mild forms, especially at the rear quarter.
But the big change is obviously on the back, with a design that emphasizes the practical aspects: low loading sill and width for better access to the vault. We would like to think something by watching the tail lights and … finally there is not nothing to say, except that the chrome is not at the rendezvous, the emotion either.
Most of the Golf Plus not
The Golf Estate is not working on the flowerbeds of the Touran minivan, which is a real high with a body and the ability to have seven seats. Between the Golf Plus and Golf Estate is more subtle and we’ll try to summarize what differentiates these vehicles.
Plus is the highest 8 cm
The SW is (much) longer: 35 cm
The Plus is more scalable examples: sliding seat, central versatile …
SW is the smartest: a true look of Golf
The elevated Plus: better visibility.
The SW is more dynamic: better handling.
Both cars have therefore a family-oriented
Both cars have therefore a family-oriented, but more seems better suited for urban use, while the SW is designed for large spaces. Finally the break is meaningless fairly easily with the ability to load large objects and handling sedan.
I know it will still be a stab in the water, but I implore you: do not rush blindly on diesel! Of course, the 2.0 TDI Volkswagen works well, of course, he has an appetite for sparrows and of course it is easier sells …
May the name of Zeus! You should know this and enjoy the day not to overlook the considerable efforts made by engineers in Wolfsburg for the 1.4 TSI engine is still elected in the year in its category. In 140 or 170 horsepower, the combination of a compressor and a turbo works wonders. The sound of the IST is sweet as the breath of a woman in love on the nape of her lover. The torque of 220 Nm (140 hp) is now at 1500 rpm and this engine is a panacea for multi-family use.
So, just to please me, before we go buy your TDI (I know I will not detain you), ask your dealer to let you try a TSI and write me and tell me what you think!
The new SW is not a beauty to die for, but it offers full intelligently Golf. Those who do only moderately driving style “MPV” will find with this Golf Estate is a good compromise between livability and vitality.
Finally the engines are excellent, unfortunately the price remains high for a car that lacks a little charm.
So I own a Volkswagen Golf 1.6 Match 16V 5-door Blue Indigo II.
I bought this car in a Volkswagen dealership with 47000kms on the clock, in May 2008.Currently it has 70000kms. In 23000kms, I had two small worries.
I have the linkage of the right front window has dropped, so glass is dropped into the glass without being able to go back.
The second concern was mechanical in nature, have an ignition coil to let him go, and the throttle body dirty. It came back at 200 € with the workforce.
Consumption level, I turn to 8.5 L of medium with 60-70% of city without cap. I put SP98 exclusively. I feel it consumes a bit less, and the engine air-rounder … The former owner had to turn to SP95.
Side faults, I would first develop a 5-speed transmission costing too. A 130km / h I’m 4000trs is quite noisy on the highway and hits the car uses a lot. The ideal would have had to have a 6 speed box, I think.
I am generally very happy with my Golf IV. Considering the use I make of urban consumption appears to me proper, especially in view of an engine “old generation”.
Question engine character, the little 1.6 16V is “two faces”. Under 3500trs, it is very flexible, and then passed the plan is aggressive enough, and 1216kg (weight gray card) does not make too much sense.The 105hp is enough in everyday life.
Side ride, my car is equipped with sports suspension lowered. The chassis is sound, and not trapping, but the city side comfort wheels + sports suspension 16 “are not recommended for people with sensitive back. But personally for me ca.
The trunk is adequate given the size. And it is square, and practice. Listed Finishing the Golf had set new standards in the class, and it shows. The interior has not changed, ca exudes strong.
This car is suitable for a family with a child. We use them as second car.
Equipment side, the series Match II is provided. Rim 16 “, sports suspension, parking sensor, Climatronic (Clim self), small leather package (leather three-spoke steering wheel, leather gear knob, leather handbrake) taillamps specific upholstery fabrics specific board computer, ESP. …
I think I’ve been around this car, maybe
