Used Volkswagen Golf car buying guide

One of the most instantly-recognisable hatchbacks, the Volkswagen Golf is a roomy, practical car with superb driving dynamics. The Golf’s versatility, through clever design and use of space, has made it a popular choice. Crisp acceleration and pin-sharp handling, help create a safe and comfortable drive in town or on the motorway. And that’s enhanced by an excellent driving position and well-designed interior. The Golf is reliable, high quality and built to last.

The style of the car

The Volkswagen Golf comes in desirable three and five-door hatchback versions, plus an estate. Designed to appeal to a wide range of customers, all look upmarket and are big on practicality. Buyers love the timeless styling and intelligent use of space.

How it drives

The Golf is better than all its rivals when it comes to how it drives. It’s comfortable in traffic but you can still enjoy a drive on country roads when the mood takes you. There’s the choice of a slick manual gearbox or the more relaxing automatic. The Golf’s spacious but still compact which makes it easy to park in town. 

The interior

The Golf has a really good interior with lots of space for passengers and luggage, making it perfect for short or long distance drives. All models have five seats and there’s more than enough boot space for the weekly shop or a few suitcases. The estate provides even more versatility and there’s the Alltrack version if you want the crossover look and feel. It can even be used as a tow car. All models have plenty of standard equipment so you won’t feel short changed even on basic versions.

Running costs and reliability

There’s a Golf for everyone including petrol and diesel versions, hybrids and even the full-electric e-Golf. All are affordable to run with great fuel consumption figures and low insurance and tax on all but the performance GTI and R versions. A big network of dealerships and independent workshops provide affordable servicing and parts, and Volkswagen always scores well in reliability surveys. Safety is a given with a full five-star Euro NCAP rating and lots of equipment on all models. 

How it compares with similar cars

The Golf is bigger than the Volkswagen Polo with more space with greater head and legroom and a larger boot. Its rivals are the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra, but the Golf has a feeling of real quality with great interior style and excellent equipment. It’s won many awards from the likes of Auto Express and the Sunday Times and even received a few for the hybrid and electric versions.
