What used Volkswagen Golf Plus hatchback will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Volkswagen Golf Plus hatchback?
VWs hold on to their value better than most rivals. A three-year-old Golf Plus will still be worth 60% of the original asking price, which makes it easily 20% more expensive than most cars in its class.
Over a three-year period, service costs will be marginally more on the Golf Plus than a Ford Focus estate, but the VW will work out cheaper to maintain than a Vauxhall Zafira.
Insurance costs, starting in group 5, are hardly harsh, and all, except the group 12-rated 2.0 TDI Sport and 1.4 TSI, come in below group 8.
Finally, the extra weight of the Plus takes a slight toll on fuel economy, but the Plus is only marginally down on the Golf's impressive mpg figures.
