I've got the dark gray exterior with orangy-brown leather interior.

2017 Volkswagen Golf SE

Vehicle comfort is great although I would enjoy more lower lumbar support. Love the sunroof on the car! Apple carplay helps me safely play music and make my work calls - my only complaint is that it constantly freezes and will be playing the song but the volume won't work. I've taken it in twice for this problem and it continues to persist without known cause. I have a dark silver car with the orange-brown interior which looks very classy. Absolutely love the backup camera, it has helped me increase my parallel parking confidence as well as safety in parking lots (Since so many people text while walking and blindly walk in front of cars that are backing up! Yikes!)

It's extremely comfortable to ride in for long periods of time.

2017 Volkswagen Golf

My speakers get fuzzy occasionally, but other than that it's extremely nice. There is tons of leg space, and the leather of the seats ia comfortable and easy to clean. Even with black leather seats they don't get too hot in the summertime, and the seat holds you in place really nicely during fast turns and things. The car performs perfectly, i have no issues with how it works whatsoever. I have apple carplay which is the nicest thing while driving, and i have a glovebox on the drivers side along with the passenger. I also have a hidden drawer under my seat.

I am in love with my golf all track!

2017 Volkswagen Golf

I love the good mileage. I only have to fill up every 10 days or so! Also, I love the reliability. It always starts, never leaks, and runs smoothly. It’s fun to drive. The power off the line is amazing. Even without trying, I am always the first one through the light. People want to race me, and I have to restrain myself, as it is ray to speed in this car. The suspension is hard. But that is handy when I off-road on the beach every weekend.
