Review

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.

get the best price

Style trim adds 17in alloy wheels, LED 'Plus' headlights, which can direct their light around corners, three-zone climate control, 30-colour ambient interior lighting, high beam assist, and smarter-looking styling inside and out that includes sports front seats.

This engine makes for relaxed progress with lots of low-down shove but, when you’re in a hurry it’s no quicker than the 1.0 TSI 110.
