What used Volkswagen Golf sports will I get for my budget?
Prices start at around £5000 for a Cabrio with an average to high mileage for the year. This should buy you one in one of the lesser trims, rather than a GTI, and should find you a car with a full service history and bought from an independent dealer. Up that to £6000 to secure a car from 2011 or 2012 with an average mileage, and spend between £7000 and £9000 for a car from 2012 or 2013 that satisfies the same criteria. Increase the folding to between £10,000 and £12,000 and you’ll secure a good condition GTI model from 2013, or a lesser trimmed one from 2014 or 2015, maybe even one of the later ones from 2016.
