Volkswagen Golf GTE Tested By Autogefühl: Video

Volkswagen Golf GTE would be great if not for the infotainment software and capacitive buttons.

The new Volkswagen Golf GTE plug-in hybrid did not have to wait long for a review by Autogefühl, so let’s take a look at whether it’s a plug-in worth a recommendation or not.

First of all, the GTE (there is also a less powerful Golf eHybrid version) shares the general improvements of the Golf Mk8. The car has also a 13 kWh battery (50% bigger than the predecessor) for a longer EV range, which is another strong positive.

On the other hand, just like the ID.3, Golf GTE’s weak points are the software (infotainment is not impressive, not too intuitive and not fast, sometimes even laggy). Moreover, the capacitive buttons on the steering wheels are also not the best solution.
