With Volkswagen revealing an all-new Golf, you're maybe thinking it's time to look at the current model as a second-hand buy.

Read on for the low-down on this great small family car.

What's it like?

Or more accurately, what's not to like? It's nimble, refined and smooth, has room for four adults, and the boot's a good size.

Overall, it's a cut above rivals such as the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra and, although it'll cost more to buy, it'll hold on to its value better.
