Review

The Volkswagen Golf continues to be one of our favourite family cars. It's practical, tidy to drive, comfortable, and the infotainment system is very well equipped and easy to use. If you are looking for something that's plusher than the cheapest in the class, such as the Skoda Octavia, Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra, but has a bit of upmarket presence and feel, then the Golf merges those two worlds very well indeed.

Trim:

GT

This sportier trim offers bigger 17in alloy wheels, sports suspension, sports seats and a performance monitor, which includes a lap timer and G-meter. Other additions over SE trim are privacy glass and interior ambient lighting.

This more powerful 148bhp 1.5-litre adds more pace and guts if you're regualrly carrying lots of people and luggage. It can still top 50mpg in real-world conditions, so it's worth thinking about if you need that added zip.
