Volkswagen Golf

The Volkswagen Golf, a public icon for the past 30 years. With the heritage from the Mk1 GTi directly traceable from the current model even after all these years, the Golf is the car for all drivers.

The new Volkswagen Golf, or Mk5 as it is known had a lot to live up to. Every incarnation of the popular little hatch has been a fantastic car that has just kept getting better and better. The new Golf though shouldn’t disappoint.

Externally the new Golf is bigger than its predecessor, which you wouldn’t notice unless they were side by side, but it does lend the car a slightly more aggressive stance. It also goes without saying that the larger size has been put to good use by increasing interior space.

Internally the new Golf has carried forwards the tradition of being very well put together. The whole car feels like a quality machine to sit in, and with some luxury saloon options available, its easy to forget your in a small hatchback. There is ample room to seat 3 children or 2 adults in the back. The boot is an ample size too.

All New Volkswagen Golf’s come well equipped with toys. Even the most basic models come with a CD player, remote central locking and electric front windows.

There is a choice of 15 petrol engines, 14 diesel and countless trim levels on offer. The engines range from the frugal 79bhp Golf 1.4s to the mammoth 3.2 247bhp R32 4Motion, plus something between to suit most tastes.

All Volkswagen Golf’s are renowned for being good handling, great fun to drive little cars and the new Golf Mk5 upholds that tradition. The steering is direct and sharp, and the suspension handles well, but without being overly firm. The grip levels are also surprisingly good, and the 2 wheel drive models feel ample, although the 4 wheel drive cars have an even more reassuringly sure footed.
