Harry Hill Car Road Test - Volkswagen Golf GTE

Make and Model:
Volkswagen Golf GTE

Introduction/Overview:
A tax beater in the form of one of the most popular cars in the UK when it comes to style and image. This hybrid/petrol combination provides business users with a perfect scenario of low tax, style and comfort all in the shape of a VW Golf.

Exterior:
The exterior is very similar to a GT Golf, apart from an additional E added on the end. There is blue trimming to provide a cool look but most of all, the charging port is the badge on the front which opens up and looks really smart.

Interior:

Interior choice, if you can afford upgrade to leather as the standard cloth looks horrible. A Scottish influence which the Scots would not be grateful for.

Engine/Power:
1.4 TSI Hybrid Battery 201BHP

Ride and Handling:
Drives like you would expect a Golf to, almost perfectly for the type of vehicle. It isn’t a GTI but you have to sacrifice something to be able to get 39g/km CO2. The acceleration will not disappoint though, it will get off the line and will overtake with ease so don’t let that put you off.

The Competition:
Audi A3 e-tron, Toyota Prius, VW Golf diesel engines and the hot hatch company car market.

Closing Thoughts:
This is a brilliant company car for those people fortunate to have one, if you aren’t so bothered about tax and want more excitement then look at the VW Golf GTD. I will be considering this for my next company car for the savings that are to be had, but like always if you talk to Total Motion we will assess your options and provide alternatives that we think will best suit you.

 Overall Score (Out of 5):
 4 out of 5

Dear John,

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance over the last few years and in particular in dealing with the sourcing of my most recent car.

Having dealt with you to source my previous 2 cars, going back to 2010, I was well aware of your high level of customer care and attention to detail which is very important to me.

During the period of my previous lease, you also regularly monitored my situation, and I therefore had no hesitation to use you to provide my replacement car.

Once again, the service and support you provided was first class, and at all times I was kept informed as to the progress of my order, and also advised regarding the return of my existing car, although this wasn’t actually part of your responsibilities.

I have in the past recommended you to both colleagues and clients, and I will continue to do so based upon your ongoing excellent service and the feedback I also get from others.

Yours Sincerely,

Mark East

Dear Marvin,

Thank you so much for your exceptional efforts to ensure that I received my car today. I know that it was a tall order but I am very pleased and all went according to plan today.

I know that people often don't seem to appreciate all the work that people put into these things but please believe me when I say that I am very, very grateful.

If you have a manager that you can pass this message on to, please do so - in this day and age people always forget to say when service is good.

Thank you so much.

Alex,

Thank you for managing to find a physical car with the exact specifications my wife wanted, something no other company could achieve. Also, for having patience with a very awkward and hard to please customer! Can't recommend this company highly enough! Fantastic from beginning to end.

Peter provided exceptional service and provided me with the Clubman at an amazing price.

I highly recommend Total Motion if you're looking to lease a vehicle at a great price. A very friendly team that were always happy to help me find the perfect solution.

Thanks a lot!

Amelia,

I wanted to say thanks for all your help throughout the process of getting my new Tesla 90D. From the start of the first call you demonstrated a perfect balance of being friendly and helpful while fast and efficient. The way you kept me informed each step of the way was exemplary - telling me what you would do, what would happen next and then confirming when it was done.

I've recommended you already and will continue to- well done and thank you for all your help.

Kind Regards,

Rob Pickering
