Appeared on the 7th generation, this plug-in hybrid version combines a drive train of 204 hp with all the homogeneity of a Golf.
From 2015 to 2020, from € 15,500
Appeared in 2015, 3 years after the launch of the 7thGolf generation (restyled in 2017), this GTE plug-in hybrid version combines the excellent 1.4 liter TSi 150 hp with a 102 hp electric motor, for a cumulative power of 204 hp. In addition to a great approval, here reinforced by a DSG6 robotic gearbox, with triple clutch, this Golf provides performance that has little to envy the mythical GTi! While displaying an average consumption that varies from less than 4 l / 100 km, if we move with a full battery at the start, to around 8 liters with an empty battery, the equivalent of a thermal version … Still, we can do, light foot and full batteries, about thirty kilometers in full-electric mode.. And that we find elsewhere all the qualities and consistency that make the Golf successful, with behavior as docile as it is rigorous, a driving pleasure that benefits from smooth and precise controls and ergonomics onions. Remains a rating always supported and higher prices than those of equivalent thermal versions.
Reliability equivalent to that of the thermal versions, but not better; some problems.
- Thermal motor : loss of power (camshaft variator); slight overconsumption of oil possible.
- Gearbox : defective sensor; very rare cases of replacement of the box.
- Emergency braking a little too sensitive.
- Direction noisy during maneuvering.
