VW Golf reviewNGC verdict 08.06.2015
Is this another nail in diesel’s coffin? Volkswagen’s first Golf BlueMotion powered by a petrol station arrives in September. With more power than the original, legendary Golf GTI, it delivers the fuel economy of a diesel with the lower (£1,700) purchase price of a petrol car yet it is enjoyable to drive.
The car is much more refined than a diesel which would be a boon on long journeys. It will also save company car drivers the three per cent company car tax surcharge on diesel.
