The Golf was initially launched in 1974 and is now Volkswagen’s most popular model. Surpassing the Volkswagen Beetle in 2002, the Golf is now a public favourite, overcoming many in both design and technological features. 

To welcome the New Golf to the Volkswagen range, Pulman decided to bring back all the old favourites. Surrounding the Golf, were the six predecessors painted a perfect picture as to the journey the legendary hatchback has made. Along with a fantastic competition to win a brand new Golf.

Mr Larkin along with Mr Reed, Mr Young and Mr Smith kindly leant Pulman their Golf’s MK1 through to MK5 for their showroom launch. Mr Larkin said “It is a fantastic site to see all the Golf Models under one roof and alongside each other. This is the perfect way to celebrate the New Model”. Being the proud owner of not only a MK1 but also the MK4 he said “I am pleased to see the MK7 hasn’t deferred from the same quality and performance. Visually the MK7 and MK6 look similar, but it’s what’s underneath that makes the new MK7 a much more advanced car over and above its predecessor.”

The fantastic Brian Moore from Metro Radio was also broadcasting live at the Pulman Volkswagen Durham showroom on Friday 11th in which Brian tweeted: “Having a brilliant time in Durham doing my show on Metro Radio. @pulmanvw we had a great time thanks.”

Delivering a fantastic customer experience, Pulman wanted their customers to have an exclusive taster of the new Golf before the general public. Mr Rolland Thompson, a Pulman Customer who was interviewed by Brian Moore said “Pulman is the name for quality service. When you buy a car from Pulman it is like being accepted into the Pulman family”. 

When asked why guests came to see the New Golf at Pulman Mrs Turner said “We have been coming here for years, we’ve bought all our Volkswagens here and wouldn’t go anywhere else, everyone is so helpful and nothing is too much.”
