What Car? Target Price:£34,790

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.

The same as the GTI Performance, but with more power.

286bhp for the GTI TCR is a big jump over the GTI Performance. And it provides noticeably more top end pace, and along with suspension and brake upgrades makes this a great hot hatchback. It's just more expensive and not as quick as the best — the Honda Civic Type R.
