New Golf, yay or nay?

  1. Seeing the car in person feels really different from seeing its photos. I have to say I like it!

    BTW this is not for GTI.
     
  2. Looks pretty much like a Fiat Stilo. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  3. I have to say I like it
     
  4. Looks is a definate No, but as it won a couple of COTYs, it must be quite good.
     
  5. i think its too conservative
     
  6. Somewhere in between. I'm not wild yet about the looks or interior design, but it apparently drives great.
     
  7. It's ok.
     
  8. Im amazed at nay leading yay....the new Golf is brilliant.....
     
  9. actually i do like it allot it has a very nice design, specially the GTi
     
  10. I think its a bit disappointing that the Jetta and Golf now share so much sheet metal... I mean the front ends are exactly the same for both cars, the design is rather bland and undistinctive... but well, quality should be at least as good or better than the Mk IV models.
     
  11. GTI? Yay yay yay!
     
  12. No, quality is worse than the Mk IV. This time, VW spent its budget on the chassis and had to save on the interior furnishings (obviously the direct opposite of what they did with the IV).


    It's been a long time since I've been so disappointed with a new range than the cars that VW has spun of the Mk V chassis so far. The Touran is summed up quite simply by Car Magazine ("They forgot to style it."), and the Golf isn't any better. VW have become the new Opel/Vauxhall
     
  13. Nay. I have driven the 1,6 and compared to the IV it is better, but not much. I did expect more. Wonder how the 140hp diesel and the GTi are...

    Lookswise it's still boring.
     
  14. I like the new Golf
     
  15. Nay! The new Passat is nice tho'...
