The 2020 Volkswagen Golf is here to dazzle
Indeed, is there anyone who doesn’t have an idea of this classic vehicle from the German manufacturer? There is plenty to be seen on the UK roads, especially since its history dates all the way back to 1974. Of course, things have developed significantly since it first hit these shores. One of the most appealing facets of the Golf is that it’s continually receiving tweaks and improvements, rather than major overhauls. The New Volkswagen Golf most definitely follows this trend. So what does the 2020 Volkswagen Golf have in store? Let’s find out.
As we mentioned above, radical innovation is not part of the Volkswagen psyche, at least not when it comes to the Golf. Instead, it’s all about evolution. So what can we expect to be different from this incarnation of the vehicle, compared to previous models? Well, quite a lot, actually. It’s a little more comfortable and sophisticated and has received a pretty big upgrade when it comes to efficiency. Elsewhere, you’ll find that many of the qualities that we all know and love about the Golf are present: a smart, family-friendly design, good handling, and the classic chassis style.
Under the hood
So what’s going on under the hood? The vehicle is available with a number of motor options. The petrol version features a three-cylinder, 1.0 litre engine which can hit 109bhp or a 1.5 litre option that’ll hit up to 148bhp. For drivers looking for electric options, there’s the Golf mild-hybrid or the eHybrid. Whatever vehicle you’re going to choose, you can expect good performance -- Volkswagen seems to have made it their mission to cut the emissions and costs of driving their vehicle.
There’s always been a fun factor to the Golf, and the 2020 incarnation doesn’t disappoint. The base trim contains a 10-inch infotainment system, which will allow you to stream music, navigate yourself, and also get access to subscription services.
The Golf always seems to be up there on lists of ‘most family friendly vehicles.’ And it’s not hard to see why: they’re the perfect size for transporting a few fellow passengers and zipping around town. The 2020 model has built on these qualities. There’s more room for backseat passengers, for starters. It’s suitable for four adults, and at no point does it feel cramped. Trips to the shops are also easily managed since there’s 381 litres worth of space in the boot. It’s not a game-changing amount of space, sure, but it’s more than efficient. The handling and style of the vehicle also make it more than suitable for business people, too. It’s a car that can do it both: it’s as suitable for home family life as it for trips to the office.
All in all, this version of the Volkswagen Golf looks like it’ll win plenty of plaudits, in large part because it does all of the things that’s the manufacturer is famous for.
