VW Golf TDI: Driving report on US soil

Nice driving report here with a European spec VW Golf GTI on US soil.

However, the Euro-spec Golf TDI that we tested over a quick drive was quite a tease—eliciting a number of oohs and ahs from some features that, most likely, we’ll never see on the U.S. versions. For instance, it had VW’s Adaptive Chassis Control (ACC), which in the U.S. will likely be offered on the pricier GTI but not the Golf. AAC has three modes—normal, Comfort, and Sport.

The new Golf VI, as it’s been called, carries over the platform of the current model, but with some obvious extensive changes to packaging. The driving position has improved, and the interior has been simplified in layout yet upgraded in terms of materials; most noteworthy was the plush, grippy fabric that stood out from the meshy, lint-attracting fabrics that so many U.S. products are now getting.
