    2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI First Drive Review

    The 2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI is diesel powered fuel-sipping machine that according to VW will gets 47 MPG in the City and 65 MPG on the highway.

    Alas this German wunder car won’t come to American until 2014.

    Until next year we’ll have to make do with the current crop of Volkswagen Golfs.

    But that doesn’t mean that we can’t review the new Mark VII car.

    In another fun and informative TFLcar review Nicole and Roman drive the newest seventh generation Euro Spec Golf with the TDI engine in Napa Valley, California.

    So does the new 2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI deliver on the promise of great fuel economy combined with plenty of torque?

    You’ll have to watch this First Drive review to find out.

    BTW: You can watch a first drive review of the new 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI HERE.

    1. I’m pretty sure those MPG figures are from the UK, which means: 1) they use the highly optimistic euro guidelines for consumption and 2) they are measure in Imperial Gallons which are 1.2 U.S. gallons. Therefore the numbers are more like 39 city 54 hwy in the euro way of measuring such things. Expect the EPA estimates to be ~20% lower than that or 32/44 which is slightly better than the current model.

    2. wondering if they had a golf with the new 1.8T engine for you to sampe? I think it’s coming out now in the mid-cycle update of the jetta, but my guess is that the golf is tuned and dampened better and I really like hatchbacks so I’m curious as to how the thing drives with the new std engine. I know it’s not going to be as much fun as the gti, but still pretty impressive #s (170 HP and 185 lb/ft I believe).

    3. What I really want to know about this car is this: does it have the “AdBlue” urea tank in the back, like the TDI Passat does??? There’s no way a regular TDI can get 65 MPG highway without urea injection. I really want to get one of these next year, and can’t find any information anywhere if it has “AdBlue”
