The Golf SV is the third variant of the latest Mk7 Golf, along with the hatchback and Estate, and has been produced by German manufacturer Volkswagen since 2013. Unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the SV is a larger and more practical configuration of the standard hatchback model, with a wheelbase 48mm longer and roof 126mm higher. The SV is the direct replacement of the Golf Plus and shares the same MQB architecture as the standard hatchback, and its larger size means that it rivals the likes of the Citroen C4 Picasso, Ford C-Max and BMW 2 Series Active Tourer.
The Golf SV is available with an extensive array of diesel and petrol engines ranging in power output from 84bhp to 148bhp. Ride comfort in the Golf SV is a particular highlight, and like the standard Mk7 Golf the drive is smooth and responsive. Volkswagen knows how to achieve an optimum blend of performance and efficiency, so all engines fare particularly well against class competition. The best performer in terms of efficiency however is the 1.6-litre BlueMotion TDI unit; this returns over 76mpg and has incredibly low CO2 emissions of just 95g/km. All engines come mated to a five- or six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while automatic DSG transmission is optional on all but the entry-level and BlueMotion models.
The four trim levels on offer comprise the S, SE, GT and aforementioned BlueMotion. Like the standard Golf hatchback, base trim models come very well-equipped as standard, with S featuring 5.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity, air-conditioning, all-round electric windows and CD player. Boot space is generous too and measures at 500 litres- an increase of 76 litres from its Golf Plus predecessor. As well as being practical, the extensive range of on-board safety features has also ensured that the Golf SV was awarded the maximum five-star rating when crash tested by Euro NCAP.
The high build-quality and reliability of the Golf SV has kept it as a favourite in its class, while its great range of strong performing engines makes it particularly fun to drive compared to its rivals.
