Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Anyone can get comfy in a Golf. Supportive seats, simple dash layout, pedals where you expect them to be. All the controls are accessible and feel superbly engineered. Stereo controls are fiddly to use on the move.

Fine in the back for a couple of growing kids, but adults will get grumpy after a couple of hours. Seats are comfy.
