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:

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.

For more effortless performance, step up to the four-cylinder petrols, starting with the 128bhp 1.5-litre unit. This delivers a bit more mid-range oomph and revs more freely than the 1.0-litre engines. It comes with a choice of either a slick-shifting six-speed manual gearbox or an optional seven-speed DSG auto 'box.
