Why choose a Volkswagen Golf?

A second hand Volkswagen Golf is a great choice thanks to its hatchback practicality, rock-solid build quality, and sophisticated image. It first appeared in the late 1970s and has come a very long way since then. Evolving through seven generations, it’s popularity has never waned, and with models such as the Volkswagen Golf GTI and R32, it will always remain a firm favourite used car buy.

What do you get with a used Volkswagen Golf?

Well, a range of low capacity 1.0, 1.4 and 1.5 litre turbocharged petrol engines and 1.6 and 2.0 litre diesel engines for those concerned with fuel economy. Or there is the hot hatch GTI or Golf R for those more interested in speed!

The entry-level S trim comes with air conditioning and front and rear electric windows (two on three-door models) but doesn’t have alloy wheels or any other niceties really. Move up to a Match, SE or SE nav though and you’ll get 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic lights and wipers, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, power-folding door mirrors, and adaptive cruise control, as well as many other useful driving aids, such as infotainment upgrades and safety features. Move up one more to the GT and get even more luxury! Then there is the R-Line trim with lots of extra goodies, however, you will pay a premium for this!

What do you get in terms of performance?

The Volkswagen Golf is very impressive to drive. Comfortable and stable at any speed, yet offering enough response from the chassis and sharpness from the steering to make it enjoyable! The Volkswagen Golf handles with precision and there is plenty of grip in all versions.

The low-capacity 1.0, 1.4 and later 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engines punch far above their weight in terms of performance, yet return impressive fuel-efficiency. If you travel on the motorway regularly, the 1.6 and 2.0 litre diesel engines are the best option.

And how about running costs?

The most efficient version of the standard Golf is the 1.6 TDi 105. This is claimed to be capable of an average 74mpg, however, you can realistically expect 55-60mpg. The 2.0 litre diesel claims it can return up to 68mpg but it is more like 50-55mpg in reality.

Petrol engines aren’t bad either - the 1.0 litre and 1.3 litre turbo claim an average 58mpg and 57mpg respectively, or 45-50mpg in the real world!

The 2.0 litre turbo and GTI claim around 44mpg, which again means around 35-38mpg on the road.

And if the used Volkswagen Golf you purchase was registered before April 2017, many models will fall into the £20 or £30 road tax bracket.
