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:

GTD

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 50mpg with the standard six-speed manual gearbox. An optional seven-speed (DSG) auto is also available.
