The model was launched 38 years ago and this latest version – 1.4 TSI 140 GT – is the seventh re-imagining of the popular car. The figures say it all: 29 million vehicles have been sold since then.
A much sleeker affair, the exterior is a sharp delivery in design, utilising creases along doors, bonnet and boot to their full potential.
Along with the distinct changes in the shape and length of the car – though it remains true to its original conception – the new Golf is also notable for its green credentials.
This is partly a result of the sheer amount of weight that has been cut from the car, which has provided it with a very low CO2 score of 112g/km.
Complemented with a lustrous interior – smart, functional and state-of-the-art – the six-speed gear-boxed Golf is a marked improvement on the sixth incarnation, which came out four years ago.
