Frequently asked questions about the Volkswagen Golf

  • What is the Volkswagen Golf?
  • What a remarkable journey the Volkswagen Golf range of compact family cars has had over 45 years – from a brave and bold replacement for the elderly VW Beetle to a car that’s still regarded as being the best of its type with the eighth-generation version picking right up where the old one left off. As good as the likes of the Ford Focus, Kia Ceed, Mazda 3 and Vauxhall Astra and dozens of others are, they’re not Golf good. Seriously.
  • Which versions of the Volkswagen Golf are available?
  • In today’s world of restricted bodystle options, the Mk8 VW Golf is – for this generation at least – going to be limited to hatchback and estate. The lion’s share of sales go by way of the five-door Golf Hatchback. There were other versions in the previous generation that we won't see this time around, such as the three-door hatch and MPV-like Golf SV, an unusual-ye-roomy five-door, five-seater that ousted the previous Golf Plus.

    Last to reach showrooms was a version of the Estate with an SUV makeover – the Golf Alltrack. It’s similar in recipe to its sister car, the Skoda Octavia Scout, but not as popular in the UK – it's not clear whether this one will be replaced. Where the Golf also trumps its rivals is with the sheer breadth of powertrain options available. As well as efficient, turbocharged TSI petrols and TDI diesels, there’s also a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) Golf GTE coming as well as mild hybrid versions. Plus, as was ever thus, a wealth of performance options…
  • What are the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Golf R?
  • Even if you’ve no interest in cars whatsoever, is it really possible not to have the faintest idea what a Volkswagen Golf GTI is? No, we don’t think so, either. It wasn’t the first hot hatch on sale, but starting in 1976 when limited imports of left-hand drive Mk1 GTIs first reached Britain, it began the process of popularising the genre.

    Things have progressed significantly since then, with today’s GTIs producing at least 230hp, but familiar touches such as the tartan upholstery, red exterior detailing and the dimpled gearknob remain. GTIs are currently the quickest of the Golf family, but not for long. Since the Mk4, we’ve been treated to Golf R models (strictly speaking, the first ones were the Golf R32, but the lineage began there).

    The previous-generation Golf R was an astonishingly accomplished machine: 310hp, 4Motion four-wheel drive and a 0-62mph time of just 4.5 seconds for automatic examples illustrates how well-rounded a performance car the Golf can be.
  • What's under the skin?
  • Since Giorgetto Giugiaro penned the crisp lines of the Mk1 Golf of the early-1970s, certain themes have continued on each subsequent models, not least the thick, hockey stick-shaped rear roof pillars and the high-set tail lamps. Inevitably the car’s grown to include more space for passengers as well as raft of safety equipment, but the Golf remains one of the more compact small family car ranges on sale.

    Underneath the bodywork is a modular platform called MQB that can be stretched lengthways and widthways to accommodate a variety of different models across the whole Volkswagen Group. Nevertheless, the most closely related of the Golf’s cousins are the Audi A3, SEAT Leon and Skoda Octavia.
  • Is it good to drive?
  • At whichever end of the range you choose a Mk8 Golf from, you’re buying a car that’s designed to make its driver – and passengers – feel good. Most models as superbly comfortable, which is complemented by the plush interiors. Even at the cheaper end of the range, the Golf still feels special. In sheer excitement terms the performance models aren’t as dazzling as they once were in terms of dishing-out thrills, but they remain deeply impressive ways of covering long distances – on windy roads or otherwise – tremendously quickly. Either way, you walk away from a Golf wondering why none of its rivals are so well-rounded.
  • How much does the Volkswagen Golf cost?
  • Well, it’s not cheap – if you’re looking for a bargain then a car wearing a VW badge is not your first port of call. They’re not luxury products, but they do feel a step above the mainstream and the prices – both on-the-road and via finance schemes – reflect that. If you’re looking for value and are willing to sacrifice a little plushness and perhaps some badge kudos, then the Leon and Octavia do a very similar job for significantly less money.
