This is Golf 3. The first Volkswagen that has won the Car of the Year award. A model that represents its class.The third best-selling car in the world. Featuring 4.8 million cars, its number is exactly as the population of Costa Rica. So many that if they were parked crosswise, featuring width analogous to the height of Richard Hammond, length equal to the distance from the manufacturing facilities in Wolfsburg to the island of Jamaica could be created. This car was manufactured in 1993. It has travelled about 320 000 km about 8 laps around the Earth. The car is equipped with a 1.6 l engine adapted to work with LPG. Let us see what it can following a quarter of a century. The classic sprint is completed within 15 seconds, one second higher that the manufacturer’s data, very well despite the wear and tear and the alternative fuel, but 6 times slower than a Bugatti Veyron The safety test is dangerous to be conducted in such a car without any ABS, the result varies each time.The best result is 51.3 meters, 20 meters more than R8.Notwithstanding the low power, the light body brings about the good performance by 26.8 sec and 54 km/h max speed between cones. If the car were to take part in the fastest lap, it would perform best in the slow and narrow sections but it would be beaten by most cars possessing similar specifications. In the fuel economy test, Golf 3 consumes 6 litres per 100 km, a bit more than the current model Golf 7. For a quarter of a century, the focus has probably been on technologies and dynamics. Engineers have hardly thought that we could pay for the fuel from Berlin to Madrid spending the minimum daily wage in Germany.Golf proved in this test that it is safe for our hearing despite its noisy engines. The soft suspension cannot filter the uneven sections of the road, the body provides the feeling of being very sensitive. Softness does not always mean comfort. The large-scale manufacturing of the model constitutes success for the European market, but we could scarcely see 4 per million cars in the USA; this is 1000 times more probable in its homeland. In the neighbouring countries with lower standard of living, this model is still demanded on the second-hand car market, and it has continued the German tradition pertaining to a practical people’s car.Bulgaria is one of the countries where Golf could be frequently seen. The third good features of Golf are: 1. practical – really
multifunctional 2. economical – now and regarding the time of its first release. 3. cheap – affordable, a price justifying the quality. The three bad features of Golf are: 1. Unsafe – poor brakes and a poor result in Crash Tests.2. Boring – the phrase ‘sheer driving pleasure’ is as distant in meaning as SUV from Off-Road. 3. unreliable – years mean wear and tear and it is valid for the cars that proved to be the best. Golf 3 is not a good option for long distances, rather it should be restored restored and stored as a young timer. This analysis is analogous to the one referring to the car presentation. This constitutes proof for the good work of the manufacturer. Golf is going to leave a decent track in the automotive industry and countless memories of every one that has had experience with this model.Like the video if Golf has been part of any of your memories!
