Volkswagen Golf Estate 2.0 TDI GT 5d DSG (2013/63) - Owner Review

Excellent practicality. Especially as this is first estate car. So many storage areas. Like the underseat storage.

Volkswagen Golf Estate (13-20)

Summary

3 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I like bland but comfy cars. That I have a boring life with no friends. That I value function over form (this bit is a compliment).

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Nice, but no looker. V60 and Mazda6 so much better looking.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Surprisingly, yes, I might... My days of fun driving are now long gone, mind you.

What are you likely to buy next?
Pagani Zonda. (in my dreams) Maybe a Mazda 6 or Volvo V60 would suit my style better... They may not be as good in some areas dynamically but they seem to offer more character. (If only Saab still existed...).

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Fluid, direct, fast, smooth. Good gearchange. But no fun. Nevertheless it's a nice place to get you from A to B.

What's it like to park?
Pretty good. Park assist takes longer than parking manually, but still quite fun to use.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Street cred is what's wrong with it in the first place. Give me the blaandest thing on the menu.

What's most practical about your car?
Excellent practicality. Especially as this is first estate car. So many storage areas. Like the underseat storage.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Park assist, adaptive cruise, dynamic chassis control is nice but unnecessary option.
