Volkswagen Golf

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: Match Edition

Engine: 1.5 TSI EVO

For more effortless performance, step up to the four-cylinder petrols, starting with our favourite, this 128bhp 1.5-litre unit. This delivers a bit more mid-range oomph and revs more overall pace 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.
