[WATCH] Volkswagen Golf GTI Test Drive At Volkswage BGC

Also known as the Mk7 or the 7th Generation Golf. Somehow this pocket rocket brought back some memories with its checkered seats similar to some old school Euros like the Mercedes 190e 2.3-16. Comes with 220 PS, Turbo Stratified Injection (TSI, there’s turbo that’s it) powerplant, 6-speed DSG (Direkt-Schalt-Getriebe or Direct Shift Gearbox), I won’t bore you in to technical details, simply put, one of the smoothest shifting you’ll ever experience. The paddle shifters has a little bit of “racy” feel and can actually hear it “grunts” when shifting(or maybe it’s just me). Finally, the Golf in our shore!
