What alternatives should I consider to a used Volkswagen Golf hatchback?
The Ford Focus is good fun to drive and has been one of the best-sellers in the family car class for many years. However, it isn’t quite as comfortable as the Volkswagen Golf, nor does it have such a classy interior.
The same can be said of the Vauxhall Astra, although it does offer exceptional value for money as a used buy because of its heavy depreciation. It’s also comfortable, roomy and, with the right engine, reasonably economical.
