2017 Volkswagen Golf - In only a couple of weeks, Volkswagen will dispatch a facelifted adaptation of its seventh-era Golf—however the makeover will be modest to the point that you may not see it at first look.

We like the Golf—despite the fact that its lineup has been diminished and the torquey diesel has vanished alongside the two-entryway body style. Starting 2017, the Golf is four-entryway as it were.

It produces 170 strength at 4500 rpm and up to 199 lb-ft of torque at 1600 rpm and is mated to a five-speed manual or—as in the auto we drove—a six-speed programmed.

The new MQB stage that propelled with the Golf's redesign for 2015 games a strut-sort front suspension and a multilink raise design; it's reassuringly firm, and the Golf is an eager accomplice even on testing streets.

The electrically helped control guiding is pleasantly weighted and works with awesome accuracy, and the standard XDS framework—an element of the strength control that applies brake weight within front wheel so as to urge the auto into corners—makes the Golf detectably more nimble with insignificant understeer. This is an extraordinary auto to hurl around, and it feels significantly more planted than the greater part of its rivals in the fragment.
