It wins in 2007, still some comparison test. Even with diesel engine, even if it consistently is classified as too rough. Furthermore, it is regarded as the founder of the class named after it, though there were a lot of cars before with space-saving transverse engine and trunk lid. It will probably be replaced in 2008 before its time. Does that mean it still is not as good as its reputation?It is rather the opposite.

Obviously, its production costs are too high. It is the unusual case that, the technicians have prevailed more than usual against the merchants during its development. We want to pick out just one example. In contrast to competitors, at the Golf 5 you can unscrew the outer shell of the doors, for example to the exchange or to reach the many parts used in the door. This feature will probably disappear with version 6.

It probably will change not so much. The operation corresponds here rather a facelift. The cost pressure is high and needs to be reduced as soon as possible. Whether something thereof benefit the consumer? Still, much basic will remain of the golf technique, eg the rear axle. Also the number of variants is to be reduced. Simpler construction can also mean a lower risk of repair costs. It is interesting to look now, what has been happening since the presentation 2003.

The withdrawal of the stratified charging belongs to the most significant changes. The term 'FSI' has remained indeed but designate since the end of 2004 a direct injection engine in the homogeneous mode. So are certain, very low fuel consumption averages no longer available even with very cautious driving. However, you can now fill up the cheaper super petrol. Not quite smoothly, the introduction of the integrated particle filter. Also in 2007 it is only available from 77 kW, amazingly enough even the top model, only with two-valves.

As successfully one can describe perhaps the introduction of TSI technology. Temporarily the fast engines are going to get in each other's way. After GTI follows R32, including the GT. The prices perceived as high are initially compensated by 'free' air conditioning, later the earlier usual optional equipments follow, this time as 'Goal' (World Cup) and 'Tour'.

Successful is also the expansion of the program, the significantly higher 'Plus' version and on this basis the' Cross' Golf. Expected, the Tiguan. And how a Golf Diesel year 2007 drive? Before the question is answered, here a little pain of parting. Because that is probably one of the last encounters with the pump nozzle concept in cars. The next diesel engine will be powered by common rail. Apparently the next one will sound more pleasingly. If he consumes more?

Here is a short drive report of 5565 km on route: a fairly standard car with no frills. Even after a whole day in the car, you go out without backache. The seats also offer enough lateral support. Average consumption of 5.7 l/100 km, but with a section of 6.4 liters (!), probably because of the traffic jams in Sete and Agde. To save money and protect possibly the environment you get quickly the idea of wanting to fill up biodiesel. That's what I thought but both, the user manual and the fuel filler flap prohibit this.

Striking is the starting weakness under 1500 rpm, which does not fit to a low-speed driving. As long as the tachometer is above 1750 rpm everything is fine. Then, the engine has enough power to accomplish almost everything even at mountain roads. Initially, one tries in the small French villages to stay in the fifth gear, 50-60 km, but due to the engine humming one takes quite quickly then the fourth. Throughout the holiday the engine stopped involuntarily from time to time.

Needs getting used is the division of the speedometer, because it changes beyond 100 km/h. With the many speed limits one can easily run into trouble with oneself allowed tolerance. How would it be to start the other division from 120 km/h? Otherwise, there are many convenient features. The indicators in the side mirrors give additional feedback. The construction of the turn signal succeeded better than at Opel. Theairco also cools the glove compartment. Large bottles find a place in the front door and remain relatively cool. The red in the middle of the instruments is beautifully clear, but getting used to in the long run. The seats are adjustable over a wide range, a oddments tray is located even in the middle under the windshield. Very handy at French toll stations.

Remains only the question why in a Golf year 2007 will be wasted so much space? Thus one buys large inner fenders for wide tires not required, which leave less space in the footwell and luggage compartment. Rear the ambitious axle under a not quite optimal low luggage compartment floor therefore. One suffers here because of the all-wheel drive version? In addition, in comparison to earlier a large driveshift tunnel (of course without cardan shaft). Obviously one has made provisions for all possible exhaust techniques here. Thus the center tunnel is strangely high. So driver and passenger are separated very clearly from each other. It requires acrobatic training, to reach the driver's seat from the passenger seat. This also applies for the rear! The third seat thus will be completely uncomfortable. After all, the great tunnel brings more stability for the passenger compartment.
