Volkswagen’s iconic hatchback is now in its seventh-generation, and is still the benchmark against which all family cars are measured. With a spacious cabin and roomy boot, along with a range of updated petrol and diesel engines.
The sleek lines of the Volkswagen Golf give this practical car a mature, handsome quality. Stronger horizontal lines have emphasised its solid road presence.
There is enough legroom and headroom within the Volkswagen Golf to keep even five large passengers happy on the longest journey. The innovative Variable Boot Floor offers a hidden storage area for maximum storage space.
If you need even more space then you can get a 1,270-litre capacity by folding down the rear seats. To keep the cabin organised there is a large storage compartment under the front armrest between the driver and front passenger, an air-conditioned glove box and plenty of cup holders.
There are also bins in the doors which are lined so the contents won’t rattle while you’re driving.

Are you still doing all the parking yourself? The optional Park Assist system can save you cranking the steering wheel, and make it easier to find a parking space. Ultrasound sensors can determine whether your Golf will fit into a space.
As you drive, the optional Blind Spot Sensor with Rear Traffic Alert warns you, within the limits of the system, about vehicles in your blind spot. It monitors the areas to the side and rear of your car as you reverse out of a parking space.
With optional Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), you can be more relaxed on the road. The Front Assist area monitoring system, which includes City Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring, comes with models from the SE series upwards.
