First Drive: Volkswagen Golf SV

If you don’t like the look and feel of other MPVs then you might like this offering from VW.

Longer, taller, wider and heavier than the seventh-generation hatchback from which the new SV takes its name. Looks and image The Golf Plus, which the SV replaces, was something of a frump but the new kid on the small MPV block is a glittering starlet by comparison. Confident lines, panels that reflect light beautifully and bold colour options that really make the most of the excellent new styling are all reasons why the Golf SV is a lot more desirable than the old Plus. Space and practicality While it packs in a smaller boot than the Golf estate, it has a clever sliding rear bench seat arrangement that means luggage space can be expanded at the cost of outright rear seat legroom.

This is the Golf built for people who like their Golfs with a bit more Golf about them. It’s longer, taller, wider and heavier than the seventh-generation hatchback from which the new SV takes its name. Its more spacious interior and higher seating position are its key selling points that differentiate it from its hatchback, estate and convertible brethren.
