Alternatives

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 for the Vauxhall Astra, although it does offer exceptional value for money as a used buy, thanks to its heavy depreciation. It’s also comfortable, roomy and, with the right engine, reasonably economical.

Overview

Smooth, suave and sophisticated, the seventh-generation Golf is a terrific used buy

  • Smooth ride
  • Enjoyable to drive
  • Upmarket interior
  • Not as cheap as some rivals
  • Could be more spacious
  • Question marks over reliability
