The VW Golf is the car most motoring journalists hold up as being the best all-round offering for drivers today. Few can dispute that the 2013 relaunched version brought with it market-leading technology, improved driving dynamics and lots more equipment. The Golf is fighting in a fierce segment and it is much, much better than many of its rivals. The Golf is as well built as it has always been and the car’s residuals remain high since it's a popular car to buy second-hand. Essentially, the VW Golf may be pricier than its rivals but it's a solid all-rounder with fuel efficiencies and decent equipment.
