Ownership cost

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

You can buy a high-mileage or Cat D Golf R in its previous-generation Mk6 form for around £10,000, or a well-maintained one with an average mileage for around £13,000, but we’d recommend spending a little more and buying a Mk 7 version that comes with an average mileage for the year and a full service history. Put aside roughly £20,000 to £22,000 to secure a 2016 car that satisfies all of those criteria. Up the wedge to between £23,000 and £25,000 and you’ll find them at independent dealers, and good 2017 cars from franchised dealers for around £25,000 to £27,000.
