  1. Omg please bring this to the united states, i cant decide between the new alltrack or an R and this would be it!!

  2. Great video Thomas, I think its the happiest I've seen you on a video! 🙂

    Watching this video gave me an idea. since not all of us can afford this amazing golf as a new car maybe a used one. I think it will be a good idea to explore the older models and see if they are reliable after a few years of use, I think its going to be interesting to see how VW for example fixed the DSG issues in the newer models.

  3. Thames,

    As always a great review of the Best Hot Estate  and  bang for the £ (Euro) / BHP ( PS).

    Will you be doing a Performance Pack review for the Hatch / Variant when available.

  4. Great car. Pretty good. But the Cupra ST 4 has the better price/product balance. Basically the same car, only differences are the gearbox (6speed vs 7speed) and 10bhp because ECU mapping. And the interior quality difference is negligible. You can't have the golf under 40k euros, but you can have the Leon a little over 30k.

  5. I've got the Rline 7, and am seriously considering the 7.5 R. Here in AU it's priced pretty well, compared to alternatives from BMW and Mercedes.

  6. You're amazing Thomas ! I like this car it looks very comfortable and very good seat materials too. I would most certainly choose this one .

  7. Nice review!!

    You should do a casting for the next Bond franchise movie, you'd be a great villain!

    Greetings from Paraguay (South-America)

  8. You guys really get a stripper model R even my base model R has leather and power driver seat , us spec

  9. 7:27 – very professional work with your sleeve – keeping the watch you're wearing in camera! Seat nice, but memory good if your wife has long legs and you both share the one car! No heated steering wheel! No HUD? Nice car! Great video images looking forward through windshield. Loved the bit with the idiot Astra 'driver' behind you! Very many thanks Thomas.

  10. Another excellent review Thomas, thank you! I may be all alone on this, but I'm not overly keen on the exterior styling – it is neither very sporty nor very subtle – like it's trying to strike a comfortable middle ground, but not quite managing either look somehow? To me it looks a little awkward. Anyways, a great car and a top review, no doubt. 🙂

  11. Top notch review…but seriously, side on, this is an ugly vehicle. I love when you ask – completely straight-faced – "is it longer than the hatch…?", because at home we're all shouting, "hell, yes it's longer". Pantomime at it's best and still only August. Here's what happened at VW: someone in Marketing asked Design team the usual; "hey can you guys turn this boxy hatch into a sexy wagon with like zero budget ?" .. and Design replied "LOL NO", sent them a sketch of this car and took an early lunch.

  12. Haha! Thomas finally said what I have been saying for years. The join half way down the central dashboard does not look good. It's one solid piece in a SEAT Leon so why did Volkswagen have to have an ugly join that does not blend in well at all.

  13. I like that German thing of fine engineering and well tought solutions in car.It makes it wery practical.Afcourse there are tthing I dont like for eg.the design of car is too conservative especialy exterior and the price of cars are really starting to go over the roof.

  14. Another Fantastic review. Autogefuhl deserves far more subscribers than it already has, and I am sure it will increase steadily. Best of Luck !

  15. The best practical sports car you can get on the market right now.👍 But you also have to contemplate the Seat Leon ST Cupra 300 4Drive. That´s also a fantastic car for everyday use and for the sporty ride on country roads ! 😍🏁

  16. hello! does the Active Info Display show navigation maps from the phone (with app-connect) if there's no SatNav installed on the car's main multimedia system?

  17. Love your car reviews, Thomas. Can genuinely feel the love for cars and appreciation of even the small features. Keep up the good work. Love from India and UK

  18. I like Autogefuehl reviews because he is very thorough and most importantly he reviews the back seat. It makes all the difference in this review. Also his native language is German but he speaks in English for his audience. Keep it up Thomas !!!!!

  19. Great review as always. I can see why some are not a fan of progressive steering. For me it gives a bit too much assistance & causes a loss in steering feel as it gets too light. Great that this is an everyday car that can do less than 5 seconds 0-100. I would have allowed a race with the Opels just to see their faces drop. Cheers.

  20. Thomas, you should send a copy of this video and review to some of the American journalists and magazines. They need to learn how to make a review on a car. Sometimes, I think that our journalists are so disconnected with the different brands around the world, they don't understand the heritage and tradition so all they do is find things they don't like to complain about.
    Case in point….manual car seats. If the seat doesn't have 50 adjustments…they will compare it to a milk crate.
    One thing I'd like to add…..THANK YOU for not destroying the review with some horrible song or annoying music. Yes, your clear smooth voice will do just fine.

  21. The Audi A4 and BMW 3 series have always looked great in station-wagon/combi/estate form. Somehow the VW Golf has never been able to do that – especially in side profile.

  22. One of the best seat surfaces offered in any car along with the Renault Meganne GT. Soft, high quality, sustainable and brilliant to have in all climates, especially hot ones like here in Dubai.

  23. Thanks Thomas for the review.
    My R mk7.5 Variant / Estate arrives next week
    Great specification in Indium Grey, classy looking car.

  24. Anyone know the watch he is wearing? I know it's an Alpina but what model? … EDIT – Nevermind, its in the description.

  25. This review (and the hatchback) convinced me to order a Golf R! Really good reviews as always, keep it up! Cheers from Sweden

  26. Thomas, when it comes to reviewing a car you have a PhD. Your videos should be made into textbooks for the rest of the journalists learning how to make the ultimate video review

  27. Super Video!
    Meiner ist bestellt, ist bei dem Facelift das DSG ˋFurzeń genau so zu hören wie bei dem vorFacelift?

  28. are you sure about same wheelbase length? and about noise: there's always more noise from the back in vagon, beacuse the back shelf is less air closed and noise dumped (roll leather instead of thick dumped shelf.

  29. I want this car! I have a VW Sportswagon, but lust for the Golf R , this is the best of both worlds. When will we get this in the USA????

  30. Just to be aware there are NOT 4 exhausts on the Golf R variant but only 2, the other 2 are dummies….. only the hatch has all 4 pipes in use.

  31. Anyone else, in the US especially, think there was something wrong with the proportions being elongated? Then realize that this is a wagon version of the Golf R, rather than the US only hatchback?

  32. ㅎ ㅎ 시트컨트롤은 전동기능좀 넣어주지는 가격이 얼마나 오른다고 그걸 빼냐 거지같다

  33. Very disappointed with my Golf Variant 2016. High beam headlights not working (a software problem they said), they have to change the water pump for overheating problems, the coolant/antifreeze signal was not working properly… 8 visits to vw official service in 1.5 years and 25.000 km… I wish I had kept my old vw Golf and I think this one will be my last vw.

  34. Here in Brazil do not see such a masterpiece, we only have 1.4 turbo engine, which does not sell much as people unfortunately prefer SUVs #savethewagons …

  35. Alltrack is Namerica. The R in NA doesnt have Port injection like Europe. Wonder why not. Helps with carbon buildup.

  36. I would love one of there here in the US. The closest we get for the Variant is the Sportwagen S 4 Motion, and that is with the 1.8 TSI. Sure, you can get a tune to bring it close to R spec, but it will never be the same. Veilen Dank!

  37. to be honest i am very happy with my 2016 vw sportwagen with 5 speed manual, and it’s definitely a performance upgrade coming from a 2002 honda civic si. but in the future i would love a performance oriented wagon (estate, not hatchback)… with a manual transmission. there’s nothing on the NA market that fits that niche. even with the 2.0 from the GTI would be great with more aggressive exterior, suspension, brakes, etc.

  38. I'd have that colour and the same black mirror caps, roof rails and Pretoria wheels, looks great! I really don't like silver mirror caps the R and many other faster cars come with (unless on a silver car)

  39. Great, full in depth review, danke. I’m planning to have a Golf R estate on my drive next year and this review has been really helpful.
