The Volkswagen Golf SV is based on the concept vehicle that was first displayed by the German manufacturer at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and the sportsvan has a growing reputation in its sector. Instantly recognisable as a member of the Golf family, the Golf SV is slightly longer than the basic Golf and it is also larger than the Golf Plus, the car it replaced on the VW slate.
The 2018 Golf SV is a great car to take on a long journey, as there are a number of innovative storage solutions which motorists can make the most of. The SV's boot has a capacity of 500 litres and this can be increased to 590 litres by moving the back seats forward. Safety features included in the Golf SV, such as a standard automatic post-collision braking system and a PreCrash system - Proactive Occupant Protection - offer peace of mind to drivers.
The interior of the 2018 Golf SV has the premium feel all Volkswagens pride themselves on, while top quality in-car entertainment makes this car one of the most appealing options in its class. Decades of engineering experience have gone into the production of the Golf SV, which has all the reliability and practicality motorists will expect from a car of its fine reputation. VW's next generation Adaptive Cruise Control is just one of the many top level features the manufacturer has added to the Golf SV, with the technology able to judge distance to the car in front and accelerate and decelerate to maintain whatever gap the driver sets.
As well as this, the Golf SV has a blind spot monitor, which VW has named Side Scan, with this technology particularly useful for reversing from a parking bay. There is more help for drivers in the form of Lane Assist and Park Assist, the former of which provides steering wheel vibrations to help drivers stay in their lanes, while the latter has various sensors to make parking a doddle. Power steering is a must for a lot of motorists in the 21st century and the Golf SV truly excels in this department, with the adaptive power steering ideal for when drivers are negotiating in tight spaces in city centres. Furthermore, VW's advanced Electronic Stabilisation Control helps to prevent skidding before it has even begun, through the use of sensors that monitor when wheels are starting to slip.
The multi-function display of the Golf SV has a lot of personalisation options, so drivers can set their own controls for a wide range of in-car features, while VW's new Driver Focused Dashboard is cleverly angled directly at the driver to make it easier than ever to read the dials. Among the features of the tech-heavy dashboard is Traffic Sign Recognition, which spots signs and displays them so they are easier for the driver to see. There is also XDS technology included in the SV, which provides extra grip when cornering quickly.
The Golf SV is a great choice of car for anyone who is attracted to the brand but wants a slightly more powerful and spacious model.
