Padtoets: Volkswagen Golf 1.4 Comfortline TSi 92 kW

Meer opsies, moeiliker besluite

Die nuwe Volkswagen (VW) Golf reeks, geloods in Mei 2017, is nie net beter nie, maar strek nou ook oor ‘n veel wyer reeks modelle. Volkswagen se reeks is nie nou net meer bekostigbaar nie, maar verskaf ook meer gemak, beter enjin verigting en brandstof verbruik. Hierdie keer toets ons die 1.4 TSI Comfortline.

Launched: VW Golf & GTi

Volkswagen’s Golf range continues to set the trend – we attended the recent press launch.

When thinking about the Golf, my personal recollection is the vivid memory of my childhood friend, whose father owned a Golf GTi Mk2. It became a family member, a car that stayed in the family for 18 years. At the end, the car and family only separated due to unfortunate circumstances. In fact, until today it is likely that you’ll hear a similar story from GTi (or Golf) owners.

The new line

I don’t get it. Those words may be laced with ignorance but in my case, I plead sheer and utter confusion, your honour. Not since I drove some low-slung quad-pipe monster has a test car garnered this amount of positive attention. Young kids, Moms and Dads, even the grandparents gawk at the new Volkswagen Tiguan.

The sensible all-rounder

Some things in life can be classless. That doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re overly bland or common (wif a capital K) because the beauty of something classless means that it’s a great all-rounder; it fits in everywhere. Like a white collar shirt, a grey handbag or the new VW Passat.

Vir ‘n werklik skoner omgewing!

In die gees van die tyd en debatte is dit nodig om te benadruk dat Volkswagen wel deeglik voertuie bou wat vir ‘n skoner omgewing sorg. Die voorbeeld is die Polo Bluemotion wat ons onlangs onder hande gehad het. Die probleem om skadelike uitlaatgasse tot die minimum te beperk is gewoonlik om onder andere verstellings in die elektroniese beheerstelsel aan te bring om verrigting te verbeter.

Launch Report: 2015 Volkswagen Passat

The smoother coincidence

Recent events have shoved the giant car maker Volkswagen onto its back feet but the colossus is using this situation to leap up with new focus and new products. Although it’s probably coincidence, their timing couldn’t have been better to introduce the new-generation Passat in southern Africa.

The safe bet

Yesterday I was abducted by aliens and had a beer with John Lennon. Why? Because I’m quite sure that nobody in the entire country will read this review so it doesn’t matter what I type. Reviewing a Volkswagen Polo is like trying to promote water or fuel. People buy it without encouragement.
