The Volkswagen Golf Estate is a very practical family wagon. The boot is generously proportioned and it’s a comfortable car with a wide range of engines that all offer good performance and economy. We dislike its infotainment system and the fiddly dashboard buttons immensely, though, and a Skoda Octavia Estate offers more car for less cash.

We'd stick with this entry-level trim. It comes with pretty much all you really need, including single-zone climate control, 16in alloy wheels, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, automatic lights and wipers, adaptive cruise control, LED headlights, a digital Active Info Display, 10-colour interior ambient lighting, wireless phone charging, front and rear parking sensors, traffic sign recognition, front and rear centre armrests, a ski hatch, front-seat adjustable lumbar support, and a 10.0in infotainment touchscreen with sat-nav, Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto and a DAB radio.

If you need an automatic you automatically get the eTSI 150 with a responsive seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The ‘e’ before ‘TSI’ means 48-volt mild hybrid electrical assistance but it doesn’t make this noticeably quicker than the 1.5 TSI 150; the electric motor just adds a tiny bit of background assistance to the petrol engine – for a fairly hefty price hike and no greater efficiency, it must be said.
