Quite simply the best small family car. This 1.4 TSI is a real gem – it's economical, yet has plenty of punch.
What's more, the Golf is brilliant to drive, superbly refined and at least £1000 under Nikki's budget.
Nice to drive and the premium badge might appeal to Nikki.
It's also surprisingly frugal, managing nearly 49mpg, and 1 Series owners gave the thumbs-up for reliability in the latest JD Power survey.
