The Golf is a highly recommendable option in the family car class – thanks in part to its solid blend of ride and handling, and the frugality promised by its petrol engines – but there are cheaper rivals that are more spacious inside and better to drive, and premium rivals with better infotainment systems and higher-grade interiors.

This is limited to a year’s run, but it’s the only way to get the R Performance pack with a higher top speed and additional drive modes. You also get Napa leather, electric driver’s seat adjustment and heated and cooled front seats.

This is the only engine available with the R 20 Years version. It adds an extra 12bhp and knocks 0.1sec off the 0-62mph time, but it's not really worth the extra cost.
