The 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.
The trimSee full equipment
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.
The engineSee full engine specs
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.
Estate has bland handling and average performance, but majors...
Competitive in lots of areas but not outstanding
