Download Free Volkswagen Golf 2.0TDi DSG.pdf Volkswagen knows how to indulge its diesel buyers, with six versions of the Golf on offer. That’s an extensive choice for such a specialised market sector. Topping the range is our test car, the 2.0TDi Comfortline with DSG transmission. While local diesel prices are higher than PULP fuel (in Europe the situation is reversed), buyers who ignore the “oilburner” option might be making a mistake. Gone are the days when a diesel’s only virtue was fuel economy, the new generation also offer impressive performance.

Included in the Comfortline’s standard equipment are air-conditioning, 15” alloy wheels, cruise control, leather multi-function steering wheel, power windows and sports style seats. Start ticking the option boxes and things can get pricey. Fitted to our car were metallic paint - $690, leather upholstery - $3,290 and satellite navigation - $2,990. Not including on road costs that comes to $41,760. Evolution not revolution seems to be the Golf’s creed. The latest series’ more rounded form should have broad appeal. While retaining the earlier generation’s “boxy” proportions, the new car has certainly grown. The term “small” is becoming increasingly generic. Interior space is generous, especially when it comes to head and shoulder room. And while they may not be huge, the door pockets and glovebox will take most items, with the luggage area usefully roomy.

Looks can be deceiving, and the leather sports seats were at odds with the Comfortline nametag. They may look like they’re straight from the hot-hatch Gti, but they aren’t. Firm and unyielding these are seats that you sit on, not in. Even with power lumbar adjustment and deeply scalloped side supports they don’t mould to you over long distances. In the rear it’s more of the same, the flat bench providing only average comfort.
