Review: Volkswagen Golf

In the past Volkswagen has changed the name of Wolfsburg to Golfsburg, including all the street signs, it’s taken over an entire beach resort in Sardinia, it’s built its own restaurant and a road to it in Iceland, and it’s turned one of the old Wolfsburg power stations into a nightclub.

A new Golf is big news for VW – it's the money machine at the heart of this German car maker. And there've been seven distinct Golf models since 1974 when VW launched its Beetle replacement, the Mark I Golf, which was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. That’s 35 million Golfs in 45 years and a consistent place at the top of Europe's sales charts; so no pressure for the Mk8 Golf, then.
