Ownership cost

What used Volkswagen Golf sports will I get for my budget?

Although it’s possible to buy a high-mileage example for £10,000, we'd suggest you spend around £12,000 to get behind the wheel of an early 2013 car with an average mileage for the year and a full service history, bought privately or from a trader.

Up this to £14,500 for similar 2015 cars bought from an independent dealer, while £17,500 will grab you a 2017 model satisfying the same criteria. Post-facelift cars from mid-2017 start from £18,500. Expect to pay £26,000 for a run-out GTI Performance from 2020.
