2015 Golf TDI

Reviewed by TDI Guy
April 29, 2015

Maybe it is to early to review my new car, as I have only had it for 3 weeks... Handles like no other VW I have ever owned. SOLID! The cabin is really quiet relative to other VW's I've owned. Big improvement. I have 1,500 miles on it and am averaging 49.5 MPG. I do about 75% highway driving.

I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES

Hated to give up my old Jetta

Reviewed by old woman, with a young car
March 11, 2015

My Jetta had 190,000 miles on it, and it was starting to get unreliable. I hated to give it up. I hadn't heard hood things about the new Jetta, but then I discovered the Golf. I love it because it has the same feel as my Jetta, same power when merging on uphill ramps, plus it is a hatchback. Cool!. The car seems a little lighter, which i don't really like, but I suppose it's what allowed me to average over 40 MPG on the freeway. Great car.

Golf's New Generation is a Winner

Reviewed by V-Dub

2015 VW Golf TSI SEL The SEL is Golf's top of line. Features that we love include Keyless entry and start, Automatic Headlights, Touch Screen infotainment system, Heated seats and mirrors, Bluetooth and Navigation. The 1.8 liter Turbo engine provides plenty of pick up from complete stop (although there is a little pedal lag, you adjust to it quickly) and quick acceleration to pass. Transmission does include a Sport Mode as well as paddle shifters, but we live in a relatively flat area and I haven't had to use those features yet. After a month of mixed driving our gas mileage is right in line with the advertised overall 29MPG and we averaged 36 MPG on our first highway trip. Ride is smooth and quiet. Ample cabin room for a compact hatch with more than adequate "trunk" space (the loading floor can even be lowered to allow for additional room). 60/40 split folding rear seats are roomy for two and feature a rear seat pass through hiding behind a drop down console with cup holders. All interior trim is quality, and fit and finish are excellent. Sport seats with leatherette are comfortable and seem like they will hold up. All controls are intuitive after a quick studying of the manual. Touch screen is proximity activated, bringing up the controls when it senses your hand moving toward it. Fender Audio system sounds great. Huge sunroof with both tilt and opening feature. If I nitpick there are only a few small issues: If VW is going to place the CD player in the glove box, they should make it a multi-disc changer. The sunroof shade is made of thin material instead of a solid panel. I would love a remote activated liftgate with a button on the hatch or trunk interior to automatically close it (my wife is under 5' which means she's on her tiptoes to reach the hand hold to close it), and while the GPS is more than adequate, I find I prefer my Garmin. Overall this is a great car with lots of bang for the buck. FUN to drive. I don't understand why this is not one of the best selling cars in the US. Small crossover versatility with sport car handling and ride with great mileage. There is a reason this was chosen as Motor Trend's 2015 Car of the Year!

A lot of car for the money

Reviewed by The guy who wants everything
October 19, 2014

Purchased a new 2015 Golf SEL with the 1.8TSI gasoline engine. Very sporty, quiet, and comfortable. DSG transmission is great. Car rides very quiet, but you can get some engine noise if you step on the gas (I like that). Very comfortable, though a little cramped in the back seat, I'm 6ft 4in though. Normal sized people will be very comfortable. Love the convenience access of keyless entry and start. Fender stereo is great. The car looks great and gets great mileage. Garrett Scott and Chris Pulohof took great care of me at VW Audi Boise. Definately recommend.
