Ownership cost

What used Volkswagen Golf R hatchback will I get for my budget?

Used prices for the Volkswagen Golf R begin at around £14,000, but beware that the cheapest examples are likely to have high mileages or previous damage.

We'd recommend having a budget of around £16,000 at least, because then you'll get to pick from a range of early cars that are in better condition and have lower (though still quite high) mileage. 

Insurance and servicing

As hot hatches go, insurance groupings have been kept low for the Golf R and it sits in group 39. Servicing costs are moderate next to some high-performance cars, but perhaps more than you’d pay for the average Ford or Vauxhall. VW offers a number of differing servicing plans that help you plan for and spread the cost of the next two services.
