The is, along with the Beetle, one of Europe’s leading automotive legends. Appearing, down the years, in various guises from sedate runabout to hot hatch, its characteristics for soundness and performance are well established. Now, however, there is a new variant to add to the already eclectic mix – the Cross Golf that received its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show last November. This is a car that merges the can-do qualities of a compact SUV with the versatility of a small MPV into a new crossover model. Like its little brother – the successful CrossPolo – the CrossGolf was also individually conceived by the experts division in matters of refinement and special vehicles at Volkswagen.

The Golf, in its new guise, debuted in 2004 and has since been branched out in various guises as the range began to round out. A case in point is the amazing GTi which is a worthy successor to the iconic cars which have borne that nomenclature.

One of the enduring features of the VW model range is the high levels of fit and finish and the excellent quality that pervades throughout the entire VW line-up. So it is no surprise that the Golf is really well trimmed out and the perceived quality ranks pretty high up. Unfortunately, all this comes at a price as the Golf suffers from being expensive.

Like all Golfs, the new model will have the ESP stabilization system including counter-steering feature and trailer stabilization, ABS along with brake assistant and six airbags as standard equipment. As standard equipment: the “Climatic” air-conditioning system.
