Europe’s biggest selling car in 2016, the Volkswagen Golf has been popular with motorists and critics alike since 1974. Now in its seventh generation, the Golf is still the hatchback of choice for many households.
Available in three and five-door body styles, the Golf is a smart-looking car with a number of eye-catching features. These include a rear spoiler and colour-coded components such as bumpers and door handles, as well as door mirrors that are electrically adjustable and heated and feature integrated indicator lights. Further illumination includes range-adjustable headlights, daytime running lights and a high-mounted brake light.
A roomy and very upmarket five-person cabin enables front-row occupants to find their ideal position thanks to height-adjustable seating. The driver also benefits from a tilt-and-telescopic three-spoke steering wheel. Other standard features include power-assisted steering, an electronic parking brake, electric front windows (also rear windows in five-door models) and air conditioning. Three-door variants feature sliding seats to facilitate easy access. An illuminated 380-litre boot incorporates a variable-height floor. When rear seats are folded, cargo capacity increases to an extremely competitive 1,270 litres.
Available as standard with entry-level S grades, a 1.4-litre 92kW petrol engine is paired with six-speed manual transmission. This delivers up to 5.2 l/100km and a 125g/km CO2 emissions figure. The most fuel-efficient option for the Golf can be selected with S trims and is paired with a five-speed manual gearbox. This returns as much as 4.0 l/100km and CO2 emissions as low as 103g/km.
A 5.8-inch colour touchscreen display is the interface for an eight-speaker sound system that includes DAB radio and a CD player. Also included as standard is Bluetooth and SD connectivity and MP3, AAC and WMA compatibility.
The Golf has been endorsed by Euro NCAP with a five-star rating, and driver aids include Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System, tyre pressure sensors and Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. A range of passive safety features include ISOFIX child-seat preparation, childproof locks, multiple airbags, three-point seatbelts, seatbelt reminders and front-row whiplash-optimised head restraints.
