‘Das Auto’, or ‘the car’ to us Brits, used to be Volkswagen’s strapline and, for many, the Golf really is the car of choice. Since the original was launched in 1974, more than 33 million have been sold – this works out to about one every 40 seconds.
This seventh-generation model popped up in 2012 and was updated in 2017 with some mild styling tweaks, new engines, a new infotainment system and, unusually for a revised model, a price cut.
It’s still not the cheapest family car you can buy, but the Golf is a superb all-rounder that offers everything most people will ever need. And with strong resale values and a range of fuel-efficient turbocharged engines, it should cost you surprisingly little to run over three years.
It should be noted that, as good as the latest Golf is, it doesn’t dominate its class in the way some previous versions did. However, that’s down to the competition upping its game rather than Volkswagen’s standards slipping.
Price-wise, the Golf is a more premium option than say, a Focus or an Astra, but it’s also a far more multi-talented one, offering a securer and supremely refined drive in regular guise, and a high-quality, largely ergonomic cabin – we used to have higher praise for it, but recently VW’s had a go at ruining it inside with new touchscreens that are worse, and so on. But it’s spacious, quiet, safe, and smart. As an all-rounder, the Golf simply cannot be beaten. As a result, it’s the car that tend to recommend when asked ‘what should I buy?’ more often than anything else.
