Volkswagen Test Drive Event !!!

Not everyone will get the chance to test drive six Volkswagen models in one day - but a group of bloggers had! Thanks to Nuffnang and Volkswagen, a bunch of bloggers had fun trying out six Volkswagen models available - Polo, Polo GTi, Jetta, Golf, Passat and Passat CC in Desa Park City.

The event started from 11am to 2pm but I was located into the 2nd session, which started at 12.30pm. I arrived at 12.30pm sharp but saw 1st session participants were still trying out the cars... In the end, I drove only 3 models - the Jetta, Golf and Passat CC (detailed review for each of them will be posted in the near future!) just in time before the end of the event.

Let's take a look on some of the Volkswagen models available on that day:

The red hot chilli pepper Volkswagen Polo! Its good handling, fuel efficiency and compact size make it the perfect urban roundabout vehicle. Although it's the smallest (and cheapest in Malaysia) model in Volkswagen's product lineup, the cabin does not feel low-end at all. The dashboard is covered with soft-touch material and everything feels built to last, a typical Volkswagen.

Then it was the Polo GTi which was in the limelight. Bloggers were swarming the car to get a chance to play with its horses, horsepower I mean!

A Volkswagen Golf 1.4 TSi was there (different variant than the Golf above) but too bad the Golf GTi was not available. I drove the Golf 1.4 TSi and I got to say I'm impressed! Selling at RM158,888, the Golf 1.4 TSi worth every of your penny, and I bet the Golf GTi will be even more awesome! Like I said, a more detailed review on the Golf 1.4 TSi will be coming!

Before the event, we were asked to choose one out of six Volkswagen models to be test driven, and I chose the Volkswagen Passat CC. Yes, I drove it too! It's such a cool car which can turn heads around when you drive pass people!

Didn't get to take a picture of the Volkswagen Jetta, which I also drove it in the event. My short verdict for the Jetta is it's a strong contender in the C-segment dominated by many Japanese car models. The Jetta is one of the best, but too bad it's price is also higher than its competitors.

Lastly will be the Passat 1.8 TSi. Also a strong contender in the D-segment, thanks to its technological advanced powertrain and classy design.

It was a pity that Golf GTi and Scirocco were not there for the event. Otherwise our test drive session will be much more enjoying! So, which is your ideal car? Das Auto, The car.
