Volkswagen Golf (MK7)

Volkswagen Golf MK7 exterior

5 Pros

  1. Terrific interior. The Volkswagen Golf sets a new standard for this class
  2. The new engines see the Golf set some amazing records for fuel efficiency in this class (or any class really)
  3. Comfortable to drive and very good around corners (although maybe not as good as the Ford Focus)
  4. Lots of interior space and a very decent boot
  5. 5 out of 5 star safety and there are some new very clever new systems that will help you avoid accidents by automatically braking (similar to the Volkswagen Up!)

5 Cons

  1. The styling is a bit boring, especially compared to the Hyundai i30 or the new Mercedes Benz A-Class
  2. Ongoing Volkswagen reliability concerns
  3. Servicing will likely remain expensive (VW in Australia does not have the best reputation for this, although they have introduced fixed priced servicing on the cheapest VW the Up!)
  4. Some of the engines have been described as “non-sporty”
  5. The DSG gearbox can be a bit jerky

Concluding personality type: Walt Disney: Most awarded to date and thankfully the legend lives on
