If you want the agility and driving performance of the classic Volkswagen Golf but with increased practicality, you’ll find the Volkswagen Golf SV is an ideal choice. Available on the Motability Scheme from John Clark, the Golf SV is also a brilliant option if you are a disabled driver who wants more space to move mobility aids or wheelchairs, as well as excellent accessibility.
Heavily influenced by its smaller sibling, the Golf SV has a simple but highly refined design. Smooth curves and sporty corners reflect the classic Golf heritage while the upright tail gives a true MPV feel. Top-of-the-range GT models have 17-inch alloy wheels as well as extra chrome finishes and rear privacy glass for a touch of class.
Inside the Golf SV you will be greeted by a sleek gloss-black panel which features the central touchscreen infotainment system. Extra storage compartments in the front and rear doors means plenty of room for personal items, allowing you to leave the 500-litre boot space free for bulkier objects. Sliding the rear seats forward expands this to 590 litres, which can be boosted to an even more impressive 1,520 litres by folding them down. With such a versatile space you will have no problem loading the boot, and the addition of a car boot hoist and tie-downs means you can easily secure a wheelchair or mobility aid.
A selection of petrol and diesel engines lets you choose the perfect level of performance for your driving needs. The smallest diesel unit is the 1.6-litre 89bhp TDI, capable of impressive economy figures of up to 72.4mpg. A larger 2.0-litre GT model produces maximum power of 148bhp, taking you from 0-60mph in a respectable 9.2 seconds. The quickest engine option is the 1.4-litre TSI petrol, cutting the 0-60mph time down to 8.8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 132mph.
As with the other Golf variants, the SV was awarded a five-star Euro NCAP rating, giving you complete peace of mind on the road at all times. Seven airbags will help to protect you and all your passengers from serious injury in the unlikely event of a collision, while a selection of advanced active features aim to keep you out of trouble. SE specification models and above are all fitted with adaptive cruise control, a low-speed collision-avoidance system and a driver-fatigue monitor.
