The dash layout has grown up, too, with the confusing digital dials from the old car making way for a cleaner, more logical design.
Being fairly quiet today I've just spent some time looking through the specs and options of the Focus and Golf and they just don't cut it for me.I think the underlying message is that it's still not as good as the F or G, if I understand the message right
I have driven the VW Golf mk6 and the Scirocco with the DSG gearbox and ACC dampers, whiles I am impressed I'm not sold on that kind of tech, it seems the more stuff they add to a VW the more it will go wrongBeing fairly quiet today I've just spent some time looking through the specs and options of the Focus and Golf and they just don't cut it for me.
Ford seem to not have a proper SatNav option till 2012 (according to the fordownersclub site) and start speccing the Titanium or X up and the cost is near the £25k mark.
With the Golf, if you select SatNav then it removes quite a few other associated goodies. I'm also not a big fan of the DSG system as it's still a clutch based model so presumably is not that clever at very slow speeds i.e slow parking manoeuvres ?
I can see how a bog standard 'manual' version of both cars are desirable due to the supple suspension but the higher spec models seem lacking.
