Which used Volkswagen Golf estate should I buy?
If you regularly carry heavy loads in the boot then the extra cost of the 2.0 TDI engine with 138bhp will be worth it. If not, then the 1.6-litre TDI diesel with 103bhp still performs well enough for most people, uses less fuel and is significantly cheaper to tax.
The entry-level S model features air-conditioning and electric windows but you need to upgrade to our favourite SE trim to also get alloy wheels, cruise control and an eight-speaker sound system. Top-of-the-line Sportline Golf Estates feature sports suspension, larger alloy wheels and a multi-function steering wheel.
