    Been to My VW dealer listers motability man showed me basic Golf life in showroom I loved it the digital cockpit and touch screen wrap around the driver and said was easy to work with voice command for heater air con etc ! And it’s slighter higher than my old Golf to get in ! Other salesman has car but will be there Monday for me to have 2 hour test drive I can’t wait ! And yes Tuesday I’m having 2 hour test drive in CHR at Toyota dealer next door ! Rox this Golf has 150 bhp so has the better suspension set up I’m used to

    All the reviews I’ve read have been good for this new golf, yes it will take a few days to get used to the touchscreen and voice control but I can see it being really useful for lots of disabled owners.

    Yes it does look nice but I think I’d be tempted to go for that lime yellow it definitely stands out.

    The life does have the basic seats, The style has microfibre inserts and the r line are sports seats. you can see them on the golf config on the vw site in the gallery when you select a certain trim.

    I’d be very careful about the basic seats, as i have back problems and is deffo worth checking them out, although having a 2 hr test drive should give you a good idea of the comfor level they give.

    I don’t know if it was because the seats were heated in the mk7 match edition, i had but deffo the most uncomfortable seats i had on a car on the scheme. After 30 or 40 mins the pain just was so bad and i know it’s more money but somethings you cannot cut corners on, like comfort. have to be style or r-line for me.

    Back in jan the golf was not an option at all for april handover and i could not wait to get rid of the one i had because of the seats as every long drive was torture. Apart from that no issues at all,  For me it would be down to the seats on which trim i would consider. £999 for r-line ain’t bad either £899 for style, although i dunno about the wheels on the style.

    r-line looks alright as well.. comes with privacy glass in the rear as well.

    Is it plugin hybrid?

    It’s not a plugin.

    The eTSI with mild hybrid technology is a significant new feature. A starter-alternator provides extra assistance for the engine when starting off and at low speeds. The lithium-ion batteries are charged under braking and while coasting. This achieves a significant reduction in fuel consumption and emissions.
    The gte is a plugin, but not on the scheme, as that starts at over £35k

    Just had a call from local VW dealer the test drive on Monday is now just 1 hour and because of Covid I’ve got to put name down to order because of build times for pick up next March ! I certainly won’t do that’s until I’ve test driven other hybrids
