Attention, we are now making a small experiment: you remember the last review, where you felt really well entertained. Maybe it was one of those cracking action movies. Or one of those wonderfully shallow love comedies. Properly well-made popcorn cinema. So, and now tell me what's left of the film, try to remember the course of action. You have difficulties? Can not get hold of anything? Voilà, experiment succeeded - so it feels like driving the new golf.

Golf VII is the blockbuster of the car industry. An absolute Megaseller, the perfect mainstream. For a long time smoothed, until nothing interferes properly - but also nothing really enthusiastically.

It starts with the design. Usually, the differences between the generations of a model are easy to recognize. In the new Golf, however, the optical differences between the predecessors and the new are so marginal that one usually has to look twice in order to distinguish between old and new.

Where is the Wow feeling?

Clearly, if you do not follow all the trends of fashion, or hike from one optical extreme to the next, this is also a performance. But when you ask yourself about a new car all the time, what exactly is the difference to the old one - that can not really be the goal.

The engineers worked diligently to further develop the seventh edition of the permanent Wolfsburg. There is now a standard start-stop automatic on board, a five-inch touch screen and a multi-collision brake. The car brakes the car after a first carambage so that it remains steerable, but at the same time is delayed so much that a second impact is weakened as far as possible or, in the ideal case, even prevented. On the paper they have also reduced the car by up to 100 kilograms, depending on the model.

Only: Of all this, you can see nothing when you sit behind the wheel. It wants partout no wow feeling.

Consumption is from yesterday

The new engine, which was installed in our test car, acted in a certain way. Sure, the 2-liter Turbodiesel direct injection is superior in all driving situations. He has, as some people say, "wumms" and pulls the front wheels impetuously with appropriate accelerator pedal treatment. If you select the "Sport" driving profile on the touchscreen in the center console, the car will move correctly for a compact car with a diesel engine.

Driving Report VW Golf VII: Germany, your car
If, however, a consumption of eight liters appears on the display despite a predominantly gentle driving in eco-mode after a hundred kilometers of city traffic, then this is no longer up-to-date.
In addition, the automatic start-stop often creates a sense of impotence. On the one hand, it works reliably even when the temperature is cold, as compared to the automatic system used by BMW in the X1. On the other hand, sometimes it simply takes too long to start the engine again.

Maybe you'd rather buy the Golf VI?

This phenomenon is especially extreme when you turn to a traffic light that jumps back to green at exactly the moment the automatic switch off the engine. As if a minimum rest period had been agreed between switching on and off, the engine is about a second, ten felt, still. So you instinctively step down the accelerator pedal, because you have intus that the engine starts by. And when he finally does so, the car makes a move forward because of the half-steered pedal.

Apart from that there is little, which one is really disturbed with the new golf. The operation of the multi-media system via touch screen is not optimal. Every time you dial a number or enter an address into the navi, you ask yourself why rum fumble is forbidden on the mobile phone in the car - the operation of the touch screen, in which one even more than when using the push / turn knob the eyes of the Road takes, but not. But even that can not be accused of Volkswagen. Touchscreen - this is the mainstream.

And so is the whole car. An unencumbered companion, which has only been improved in detail compared to his predecessor. Perhaps this is also the problem: The predecessor was simply already too good. Many specialist magazines therefore counsels the steep prices for the new and the juicy discounts for the old instead of a Golf VII rather a buy well-equipped Golf VI to buy.

And so, at the end of the test ride, a certain perplexity remains. About why the Germans love this car so much. Because that's exactly what they do. With the new Golf you will experience situations like otherwise with a classic car. When the car is parked, people are always standing there. Going around the window, she walks around the room with a hand to take a look at the interior.

Or they approach when you get into the parked golf and ask, "And how is he like that?" Self-acquainted people, who are otherwise not interested in cars, immediately stop: "Oh, you were just testing the new golf?" How can it be that people are attracted to this thoroughly benign car? Probably exactly because of that. The perfection of the average - this is mainstream as spoken about at http://nirroltd.uk..
