VW Golf review

NGC verdict 11.08.2016

You would be forgiven for thinking that we've put the wrong picture at the top of this review. Surely that's just a Golf? Well we've got it right, it's just that the e-Golf looks almost identical to its internal combustion powered stablemates. In a market where the likes of the Nissan Leaf and BMW i3 embrace being different and reflecting that in its design, how does Volkswagen's all-electric family car get on?

What is the VW e-Golf?

Volkswagen has proved with the e-Golf that its famous family car is nothing if not flexible. Models to bear the Golf badge include three and five door hatchbacks, an estate, a convertible, hot-hatch, seriously hot-hatch and soft-roader - with almost a full complement of engine options too in the shape of petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrid, and full electric.
