Volkswagen's hit that sweet spot with the exterior, right between grand and sophisticated but still family friendly.
It looks appealing, not pompous and you’re immediately struck by the modern design. The special paint colour is glorious and so it should be - it’s an extra $2000.
The interior looks luxurious. It’s fitted with the 'Innovision Package' (an extra $8000) which gives you an enormous multimedia screen that stretches from the middle to across in front of the driver’s seat, so you get a completely digital dash.
The size of the screen and the way it’s incorporated into the design really makes it feel premium, and like you’re getting value for the amount you paid for the system.
The seats are high quality leather, very comfortable and the front seats are heated and cooling, 18-way power adjustable, plus come with a 10 program in-chair massage feature, which is exactly what you want while sitting in traffic.
One feature that was a hit with my children was the way the interior lights up at night - it happened to be in my daughter’s favourite colour purple, but you can choose from 30 shades.
It was such a pleasure to sit in all week and really made me feel good driving it.
