Volkswagen Golf is refined on the motorway

One of the biggest surprises of the new Volkswagen Golf is how refined the car is when cruising on a motorway, a reviewer has stated.

Writing for the Times, Gavin Conway revealed that when easing the MK 6 Volkswagen Golf GTI up to a fast cruising speed, it is "very quiet".

Also, he highlighted that the ride offered at these speeds was "superbly absorbent", with the adaptive suspension noted as one of the key reasons for the level of comfort witnessed.

Mr Conway also speaks highly of the noise that is gained from the engine, with the "subdued" sound heard when a motorist lightly presses on the throttle replaced by a "deep guttural moan" that is created as the revs rise.

He concluded that the Golf will be a "tough act to follow", as it is "more of an all-rounder than before", without being "madly expensive" for interested buyers.

The vehicle is capable of reaching a top speed of 148 miles per hour through a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, while 62 miles per hour can be hit from still in 6.9 seconds.

Also, fitted as standard on the vehicle are a front centre armrest with a storage compartment and a luggage compartment cover.
