What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It has all the class of the Golf and more room

Against It's heavier than the Golf but is no more powerful

Verdict The extra space is useful, but it’s no MPV

Go for… 1.9 TDI (105)

Avoid… 1.4 16v petrol

Volkswagen Golf Plus MPV
  • 1. Look out for electric glitches and problems with the headlamps
  • 2. The 1.6-litre engine can suffer from faulty timing belt tensioners
  • 3. Golf Plus has a bit more boot space than a standard Golf - lots, in other words
