Volkswagen Golf Hatchback 2.0 TDI GTD 5d DSG (2014/64) - Owner Review

The storage is really flexible. There are so many decent sized cubby holes everywhere. I particularly like the generously proportioned boot with the multi-level floor to stow items away that need to kept in the car but still keeping everything tidy up top.

What was the dealer like?
Really good, everything went very smoothly and felt like they really wanted to spend the time to make sure every aspect went well. Really appreciative of my business and even through in some goodies!

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Amazing! It's effortless to drive especially with the DSG box. Equally great around town and on the motorway but out on the open road it transforms into something else, it real does feel like a proper sports car, the acceleration and torque is incredible, it grips the road as if it was on rails!

What's it like to park?
Easy to park, plenty to help you out. Lots of visibility, front and rear parking sensors and the variable steering means it's light and manoeuvrable for delicate positioning moves.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing at all! The only things that haven't gone right are when I haven't understood how things operate - and that's down to me.

What's most practical about your car?
The storage is really flexible. There are so many decent sized cubby holes everywhere. I particularly like the generously proportioned boot with the multi-level floor to stow items away that need to kept in the car but still keeping everything tidy up top.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
My favourite gadget (although it's difficult to choose because there are so many) is the Adaptive Cruise Control, it's brilliant how it constantly adapts the speed depending on what is happening ahead.
