The Volkswagen Golf is cool, and like every Volkswagen on the road, it is characterised by high-quality equipment and customisation options. So, we already know it is THE car that all other family hatchbacks are measured against – but what does Graham, our Pulman reviewer think of the Golf?

It’s packed with safety, style and technology and comes in 6 trim levels. Starting with the S, followed by the Match, then there is the GT trim, R Line, and GTI. PLUS there’s the Golf Estate, the Golf SV and the exciting new e-Golf.

Volkswagen, SEAT and SKODA Drive into 2019 as WhatCar? Winners

It’s that time of year again, it’s What Car? Award season! There’s no bigger prize than a win at the annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards. This year we are incredibly proud to announce that we have won a whole host of awards! Let’s see who scooped first prize…


The SKODA winning streak has continued as we drive into 2019 with two WhatCar? category wins and four price point victories – that’s an impressive six accolades! The SKODA Octavia was crowned ‘Family Car of the Year’ and the SKODA Superb was awarded ‘Estate Car of the Year’ for the fourth year in a row. Last, but not least, the Superb, Karoq, Citigo and Fabia also went on to win a price point award!

Here’s what Ian Jarvis, SKODA Sales Manager had to say:

“Winning a What Car? Car of the Year Award is the biggest accolade a car and car maker can get. SKODA cars are dynamic, interesting and simply clever – coupled with the Pulman fantastic customer experience, owning a SKODA just got even better!


SKODA was not the only winner on the night. Two SEAT models have also claimed top category honours in the What Car? Awards 2019. The CUPRA Ateca won sports SUV of the year and the SEAT Arona won small SUV of the year (for the second consecutive year) at the What Car? Awards in London.

Alex Paget, SEAT site manager, said

“To be recognised by industry experts for our SUV models is fantastic, we are incredibly proud that SEAT and CUPRA were crowned winners at the 2019 WhatCar? Awards. We knew that the CUPRA Ateca was going to be a spectacular car, but when it was delivered to site we couldn’t wait to get it out on the road. The CUPRA Ateca is ready and waiting to hit the roads of Sunderland – why not pop along to Pulman SEAT for a test drive?”


Volkswagen might of been late to the pick-up party when it launched the Amarok in 2010, but it was worth the wait! This year the Amarock was crowned overall winner in the Pick-up of the Year category.

Here’s what Keith Ramshaw, our Volkswagen Sales Manager had to say:

The Volkswagen Amarock is a fantastic car, and my go-to demonstrator all year round. It truly is a truck you can use every day, from a weekend away, to a trip to the supermarket!

We already know how brilliant, practical and spacious the SKODA Kodiaq is, but did you know that the Kodiaq has been upgraded with the legendary vRS badge? It comes with the same Simply Clever features and practicality but it also comes with the typical vRS strong performance and keen handling! 

Kodiaq vRS front

From the outside, the Kodiaq vRS is immediately set apart with the striking 20-inch alloy wheels, unique bumpers, red vRS badges and plenty of gloss black trim.  Inside you’ll see more of this sophisticated and aggressive look with lashings of carbon-effect trim, Alcantara sports bucket-style seats and sports pedals.

Inside the NEW Volkswagen e-Golf

We already know that the Volkswagen e-Golf is here to revolutionise the way we conquer the city streets. It has an electric motor that doesn’t compromise on performance, a range of charging options and a seriously impressive range, but what about the infotainment, driver assistance and equipment? How does the inside of the e-Golf measure up to the Volkswagen exceptional standard of vehicle? 

 It will be no surprise that the e-Golf is jam-packed with class-leading options that have always been staples of Volkswagen cars.  With Discover Navigation, finding your way around the infotainment options is quick and easy. Using this feature you can access all your favourite apps via voice or gesture.

On top of this Car-Net redefines in-car connectivity. Want to listen to Spotify? No problem! How about send or receive a message safely? The e-Golf has you covered. Car-Net helps you do all this with a wide range of helpful services including MirrorLink – the ability to connect your phone enabled apps to your dashboard. 

And it doesn’t stop there – the intelligent driver assistance systems in the e-Golf provide comfort and peace of mind! The main goal of each feature is to help you avoid difficult situations, but even if you find yourself in an awkward spot the e-Golf is always ready to help. Lets take a look at a few systems…

The standard adaptive cruise control helps you adjust your speed depending on the vehicles around you. Front assist includes emergency breaking assist as well as pedestrian monitoring – just in case someone unexpectedly steps out in front of you. 

The optional Traffic Jam Assist feature monitors other vehicles around you to help prevent collisions when you are in a traffic jam. Emergency assist meanwhile can detect when the driver is no longer in control of the vehicle and takes semi-automatic control. 

The optional Park Assist helps take the stress out of parallel parking. Not only will the feature help you find a space, it will also use ultrasound sensors to tell you whether your e-Golf can fit into your chosen spot. 

The optional Blind Spot Sensor warns you if there’s a car travelling in your blind spot to provide extra peace of mind. It also tells you if a car is approaching as you reverse out of a parking space.  

Want to know more about the e-Golf? Check out our website here or our latest e-Golf blog post here. We have the e-Golf in our showroom ready for you to take out for a spin on the streets of Durham and Sunderland. See you soon! 

The Volkswagen e-Golf: more than just an electric vehicle!

Do you want to join the electric movement and revolutionise the way you conquer the city streets? Yes? We have the perfect electric vehicle for you … The Volkswagen e-Golf. With eye-catching design and class-leading equipment, the e-Golf is more than just an electric vehicle. 

Following hot on the heels of the e-Up, the new zero-emission version of Volkswagen’s best seller is in our showrooms now! The e-Golf doesn’t stand for compromise, other than running on 100% electricity it is still full of versatility, practicality and agility. At a quick glance, you might be fooled into thinking nothing had changed from the traditional seventh-generation golf. Apart from a blue strip on the front grille, a pair of e-Golf badges front and rear and full LED headlights there seems to be little to differentiate the e-Golf from the more conventional combustion-engine touting siblings.  

e-Golf exterior

However, a closer inspection of the family favourite reveals there is a whole host of aerodynamic requirements which help it glide through the air efficiently. Included is a new bumper with integrated LED daytime running lights that mimic the shape of the e-Up, a closed-off grille, a rear spoiler atop the tailgate and a new rear bumper.

And it’s not just the exterior that makes the e-Golf the perfect city partner! Whether you need to make a call while driving, up-to-the-minute traffic updates, help with directions, or simply want to listen to some music, your e-Golf infotainment, assistance systems and equipment options have you covered!
