The Volkswagen Golf continues to be one of our favourite family cars. It's practical, great to drive and gets plenty of equipment options - there's also an endless list of engines, trims and accessories to suit every drivers need. It can't quite live up to the perceived luxury of the BMW 1 Series or Audi A3, but its cheaper price justifies everything about this package.

Trim:

S

Entry-level S-trim isn’t lavishly equipped, but it does come with trinkets including air-conditioning, four electric windows (five-door model only), height-adjustable front seats, a front centre armrest, a DAB radio, Bluetooth and an 8.0in colour touchscreen, but you have to put up with wheel trims instead of alloy wheels.

Engine:

1.0 TSI

This 84bhp three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine is available only in entry-level S trim with a five-speed manual gearbox. We haven’t tried it yet, but judging by the lethargic official 0-62mph time of 11.9sec – with hardly any improvement in fuel economy over the more powerful 109bhp version of the same 1.0 engine – it doesn't seem the best choice.
