Volkswagen Golf Last Edition, goodbye without fireworks

9 Aug


The seventh generation of the Volkswagen Golf was launched in 2013. It was updated, as usual, after a few years, specifically in 2017, but like every product, the end of its commercial life is coming. This is a farewell that we already knew and anticipated and that now a new special edition, the Volkswagen Golf Last Edition, confirms. In previous generations the brand acted identically. It is expected that the next generation will be presented this year and will reach dealerships in early 2020. Should we bet on this version? As usual in this type of special finishes, the large assembly of all models is joined after several years with the workers refining their tasks and great equipment.

Does it hit her? It is only available with a mechanic. This is the 1.6 TDI diesel engine with 115 HP and 250 Nm, linked to the manual change of five relations. It stands out for its consumption (homologous 4.1 l / 100 km with CO2 emissions of 109 g / km), but its benefits are somewhat discreet, since the Golf with this propeller accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in more than 10 seconds. The price of this Volkswagen Golf Last Edition, without discounts, is € 25,870, a fairly high amount for a compact of its power. The price does not include discounts and is partially justified since the endowment is very complete.

Standard, this special edition, which joins the latest Golf GTI 3-door to be manufactured, the GTI The Original, boasts 15-inch alloy wheels and headlights with LED daytime running lights, as well as electrically adjustable and heated exterior mirrors . Inside we find electric windows, height-adjustable driver’s seat, central locking with control, air conditioning, leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel or a 6.5-inch screen for the infotainment system Special attention is given to driving aids. From the usual rain and light sensors or the start-up control to different airbags, cruise control and speed limiter or the front and rear parking sensors.
