The sixth generation Golf has currently been made available and buyers can now place their order for the latest model in a Volkswagen Retailer several months in advance of cars that will arrive in the UK early next year. The bottom price of £13,150 ($22,751 or €16,900) for the entry-level S three-door series with a 1.4-liter 80 PS engine and £20,980 ($36.300 or €27,000) for the top of the series GT five-door that comes with a 2.0-liter TDI 140 PS and six-speed DSG gearbox.
The Golf supports several new features such as the Volkswagen's innovative Adaptive Chassis Control which gives the driver control choices ranging from normal, comfort or sport modes to determine the desired suspension, steering and accelerator responses for each unique trip.
Also available in the Golf is ParkAssist which assume control over steering inputs making parallel parking maneuvers a cinch. The readily visible and distinct appearance of the Golf follows the design trail started by the Scirocco.
However, what are not immediately observable are modifications that went into the Golf which made it the most refined car ever. These modifications include advances in wind noise reduction, a totally all-new design of door and window seals, a new damping film that assists the windshield, and a new mounting system for the engine.
The interior is highlighted by materials and equipment borrowed from vehicles in a higher division which provides an enhanced quality feel, further improved by appropriate choices of new soft touch plastics and attractive aluminum and chrome accents.
The Volkswagen Golf is a unique car with a history unsurpassed by most competitors. With a global market which has reached 26 million cars and is already in its sixth generation, the latest Golf addition has provided buyers a high and consistent standard in quality, safety, modification and style.
