Volkswagen Golf Hatchback 1.4 TSI Bluemotion Tech SE 5d DSG (2013/13) - Owner Review

Lots of leg room for a tall person like me. Comfortable seats and a big boot. Also for the first time on the Golf, this car has stop/start technology and fuel economy is the most important factor when I decided to get this car.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Superb. Previously had a Mark 6 Golf and the Mark 7 is in a different league. The car feels a lot more agile and the steering feels lighter and more rsponsive than the Mark 6.

What's it like to park?
Very easy to park now that I have front and rear parking sensors.

Have you had any problems with the car?
It's brand new, can't say anymore with regards to this.

What's most practical about your car?
Lots of leg room for a tall person like me. Comfortable seats and a big boot. Also for the first time on the Golf, this car has stop/start technology and fuel economy is the most important factor when I decided to get this car.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
It has to be the touch screen radio. It's simply superb and much better than the one that I had in the Mark 6. This car also lets you know if you are getting too close to a car while driving !
