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.

On top of the GT trim on which it’s based, the GTD comes with an even sportier bodykit, LED headlights, lowered, sports suspension, a honeycombe front grille, heated front seats, heated windscreen, dual-zone climate control and a 12.3in digital instrument display.

This most powerful diesel engine is reserved exclusively for the sporty GTD. It delivers brisk acceleration getting from 0-62mph in as little as 7.4sec, and on to a top speed of 144mph. At the same time it’s claimed to return upwards of 60mpg with the standard six-speed manual gearbox. An optional seven-speed (DSG) auto is also available.
