What alternatives should I consider to a used Volkswagen Golf estate?
The Ford Focus Estate offers a more involving driving experience, while a Vauxhall Astra Estate looks like better value for money in terms of age, mileage and spec, but lags behind for future resale values, interior quality and driving experience.
Don’t overlook models from Volkswagen’s sister brands either, as both the Seat Leon ST and in particular the Skoda Octavia Estate offer a lot of space for the money and a similar driving experience, if not quite matching the Golf’s overall sense of class and refinement.
