Re­port 5 VW e-Golf

Top Gear (UK) - - GARAGE | AWARDS 2018 -

We need to talk about the e-Golf’s ride. Be­cause it is ex­quis­ite. Tall tyres, sus­pen­sion that’s not try­ing to do any­thing other than smother and soak. Just glo­ri­ous. The e-Golf pro­gresses silently and softly down any road. It’s a facet of the car’s per­for­mance you only no­tice when you think about it, one of those quiet sat­is­fac­tions that’s en­tirely in keep­ing with the way this elec­tric car goes about its busi­ness. Sus­pen­sion noise is beau­ti­fully in­su­lated, too. There’s a maxim among ve­hi­cle dy­nam­ics engi­neers that what’s good for ride is also good for han­dling. It’s one that seems to be ig­nored all too of­ten, but there’s a real har­mony to the e-Golf’s han­dling as well as its ride. I re­ally love this car.
