The 2012 Volkswagen Golf A Great Selling Car

Wolfe Tone
November 24, 2012

The 2012 VW Golf features German manufacturing in a small framed car. This model has established high rankings for it's safety features and reliabilty.The quality manufacturing and overall small size make the Volkswagen Golf a pleasurable vehicle to drive.

The VW Golf features a mighty motor and the use of high quality materials for the inside of the vehicle. As far as current models of the Volkswagen Golf being offered, a lot of people suggest opting for the Turbocharged Direct Injection diesel trim model, due to the fact that this model provides much better diesel mileage and fuel efficiency than other types. This model is also available in both a normal and automatic powertrain. TDI models also come with a sport suspension that lots of drivers prefer.

The VW Golf features outstanding on-road functioning with smooth steering and hard braking function. U.S. News rated the VW Golf with an overall 8.5 out of ten. Features such as performance, exterior, internal, safety, and dependability were factors judged to decide this score.

Safety is at all times a concern in a vehicle, and the VW Golf comes with individual safety features such as anti-slip regulation, hill hold assist,engine braking assist, electronic differential lock,electronic brake-pressure distribution, hydraulic brake-help, anti-lock brakes, and six airbags. The four door model of the Volkswagen Golf Gold was rated as an IIHS Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety. (This rating does not apply to the two-door model.)

J.D. Power Ratings compiled scores from purchasers who have owned the vehicles for a few months. Ordinary consumers who own a VW Golf gave it an average rating in overall and powertrain quality. The rating was slightly higher than average for body and interior quality in design,and in the mechanical aspects of features and trimmings quality. The customer rating ranked slightly less than average for the design aspect on features and accessories, as well as the mechanical aspects of body and interior quality.

We test drove the Volkswagen Golf across county Meath and found it quite a pleasant drive and it performed smoothly across the undulating terrain of the Meath countryside. The vehicle did everything that was asked of it and the feedback through the steering wheel was remarkable. The ride comfort for a car of this size was remarkable and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recomending it to anyone who was considering buying one. It is very ecconomicial and its diesel engine could be compared to that of a petrol version when it came to acceleration.

We love the car and look forward to testing the 2013 version.
