2013 Volkswagen Golf 7 Tested

We're heading back from the cross-country tour that we subjected the Volkswagen Golf 7 to. We wanted to see if you can use this benchmark model inside a city that's located a few hundred miles from where we took the car.

We've spent countless hours in the seats, but if some kind of device belonging to the Men in Black would erase our memory, there would be no physical stress to remind us of this. The Golf eats mile after mile as if it would confuse the B roads for boulevards. It's light on its feet and even a bit cheerful.

Before we left the city, we took a good bite of the evening commute. Nobody seemed to love anybody in that rush, but the Golf definitely showed us some good feelings. It kept us isolated from the razor-sharp looks thrown from one car to another as the vehicles dragged their wheels across the overpopulated tarmac.

We drove a famous couple called "TSI+DSG" and the combination is brilliant. This is one of the least compromising powertrains on the market and even in its skinny 1.2-liter configuration it managed to provide a decent overall experience.

To be or not to be... bored. This is the question after a long drive and the answer can be found in our Volkswagen Golf 7 test drive.
