Why You Should Buy a New VW Golf 7

The latest VW Golf 7 is a fantastic and versatile ride, ideal for trendy families, as well as singles and their friends. It’s comfortable, boasts economical and refined engines and is all-round practical. There are plenty of reasons why the VW Golf 7 is worth your hard-earned money, including:

  • Amazing visibility – With its slim door pillars and large windows, the new Golf 7 offers incredible visibility from all angles. Very few of its competitors can beat it.
  • Comfortable inside – Golf 7s are unique in that they’re able to accommodate nearly all drivers, comfortably. The same can’t be said for other similar family-centric cars out there. Both the seats and steering wheel can be adjusted for optimal comfort.
  • Incredible at cornering – It’s hard to find another hatchback even nearly as agile at cornering as the Golf 7. It gives drivers the confidence to push their ride further than they normally might, since it remains planted on the road so firmly.
  • Perfect petrol – The 1.4-litre TSI engine is a favourite since it’s smooth, strong and relatively cheap to run.
  • Quite engines – There aren’t many cars on the road today that can compete with the Golf 7’s quite ride. Both road and wind noise seldom interfere in the hatch’s interior and all engines in the range are well-suppressed.
  • Safe and sound – Drivers and passengers alike can rest easy knowing that their Golf 7 is kitted out with seven airbags throughout the vehicle, alongside a host of other standard safety features, should the unforeseen happen.
  • Sportier than ever before – For those who love the Golf 7 for its practicality, but crave more power, we have the ideal solution: the new VW Golf R. It’s among the best of the best all-wheel drive hot hatches around.

If these seven reasons haven’t convinced you yet, then read on to see what each VW Golf 7 has to offer for its respective price. We can tell you one thing – no matter which one you choose, you won’t be disappointed.
