2018 VW Golf GTE – FULL REVIEW – All You Need To Know

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


It’s no secret that Europe has long had access to versions of the popular Volkswagen Golf compact hatchback that Canadians could only dream about. Occasionally, however, those dreams solidify into something a little more substantial, which is how North Americans got a taste of both the e-Golf and the fabled Golf R.
The vehicle I’m piloting through the Austrian Alps today is yet another example of VW’s tease, tease, tease – a model that aims to straddle the gap between the all-electric e-Golf and the affordable fun of the GTI. It’s the Volkswagen Golf GTE, and it’s been designed to spread its high-tech message to the masses who might not have thought they could afford a performance-oriented hybrid.
The Golf GTE isn’t a totally unknown quantity on this side of the Atlantic, as its hybrid drivetrain is already marketed here under the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron banner. While it’s simplistic to label the GTE a Volkswagen version of the e-tron, the truth lies somewhere in between: both are small hatchbacks featuring a plug-in electric drivetrain that’s oriented as much towards driving pleasure as it is towards saving you a buck or two at the fuel pump.
