Description

This roomy and comfortable Golf TDI has 450-mile cruising range, epicurean comforts, and feels solid and planted at highway speeds. If you want to know why Golf has been the best-selling car in Europe for quarter of a century, rent this one. It comes with 2.0-liter, direct-injection turbo-diesel (TDI) which packs 236 lb-ft of torque rivaling a small truck and, in good hands, can beat Prius when it comes to highway mileage. And, oh, it is way, way more fun to drive. "The torquey diesel delivers plenty of quick thrust regardless of the situation, while the car itself feels firmly planted at highway speeds. The overall driving dynamics also offer an enjoyable time when the highway ends and the curvy roads begin with the DSG dual-clutch gearbox running through the gears quickly and efficiently to keep the power on tap" (Car and Driver). And if the automatic mode is not enough, there are sport and sport/manual modes with paddle shifters on the wheel. Throw it into a corner and there’s a lot of roadholding from the wide, deluxe Michelin Premier tires. “The car has plenty of suspension travel for taming rough stuff, the strong structure kills vibrations and road thrum, and the Golf has that solid German highway composure that makes distance traveling such a pleasure”. HD radio, Sirius XM, Bluetooth audio, and comfortable seats (heated front, split foldable rear) complete the package. All in all, this car packs everything for an enjoyable trip.

Kostia made my first Turo rental an absolute breeze. Not only was his car clean, comfortable and incredibly fuel efficient, he was kind enough to meet us in very convenient locations for both pick up and drop off. The Golf is easy to drive, compact for parking yet plenty roomy for our large suitcases. Would absolutely recommend and/or rent again. Thank you Kostia!

In addition to the car being clean, Kostia was very responsive. We had to make some adjustments regarding drop off and pick up, but communication was smooth. I would definitely recommend Kostia and his Golf TDI!

This is the second time I rent Kostia's Golf and it was once again a pleasure to drive. Pick up and drop off were very easy. Thanks Kostia!
