Which used Volkswagen Golf estate should I buy?
Engine choice will depend primarily on your intended mileage, with diesels best suited to those who spend a lot of time on the road. However, for most people the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine in either of its two available power outputs represents the best all-rounder. If you're buying a post-facelift car then the 1.5 TSI 130 is the one to seek out.
As far as trim goes, we'd stick with SE, which has all the equipment you could reasonably want.
