Car Review - Volkswagen Golf Mild Hybrid 1.5 eTSI DSG R-Line (A)
29 May 2021  |  Volkswagen Reviews
The new Volkswagen Golf R-Line sports an athletic appearance akin to its hotter GTI version. Looks aside, its handling and interior has also been improved.

Review
Benchmark chassis dynamics and punchy drivetrain. Beats all 1.6L Japanese family cars in this area. Rides well, feels good.

However, interior frustrates. Base spec cost $25K more than a Mazda 3, yet feels less premium. Infotainment is slightly fussy, made worse by the lack of physical controls that has been discussed to death. At least the higher spec Leon FR has some sliders to play with below the screen, the base spec has none.

Pricing is quite made worse by Cat B COE. It cost a good $2K more a year to run than the increasingly good Japanese/korean counterparts. If this is nothing for you, go for it !

Otherwise, a used Mk 7.5 is arguably a better alternative.

What I like
- Looks handsome in flesh
- Great ride, Good handling
- Good build but basic in base trim for its price
- Punchy drivetrain

What I do not like
- Basic interior, just look at the LCD
- lack of physical controls
- Px
