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: R

Top-spec model comes with all the trimmings of the GTI, plus 4Motion (four-wheel drive) and a 296bhp engine.

Engine: 2.0 TSI 300

This is exclusive to the Golf R. 296bhp and standard four-wheel drive means stunning straight-line pace, even in slippery conditions. Easy to drive, but not the most fun hot hatch on sale, though.
