Volkswagen Golf Hatchback 1.0 TSI 115

Manufacturer price from:£19,655
What Car? Target Price:£18,008

The 113bhp version is one of our favourites. It's no speed machine, granted, but revs keenly and feels livelier than you might imagine for such a small engine. That applies even when you're on the motorway; you just need to work it a bit harder than some of the more powerful alternatives. Comes with a standard six-speed manual gearbox that's slick to use, or an optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
