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.get the best price
The GTI Performance features LED headlights, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control and a 12.3in digital screen in place of analogue instruments; this displays lots of useful info including full-screen sat-nav maps. You also get sportier styling touches that hint at this model's extra performance.

242bhp is enough to match the pace of the entry-level Hyundai i30N, but what’s important is that the GTI Performance feels strong, even from low revs, making it jolly flexible in everyday use. That said, it hasn't the firepower of rivals such as the 316bhp Honda Civic Type R. The 286bhp TCR model is faster and perkier at high revs, but very pricey.
