This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Volkswagen Golf Hatchback review.

Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Lacks safety features considered basic by today’s standards; solid build quality but little protection for driver or passengers. No alarm or immobiliser was fitted when new; look for models with good aftermarket additions; more secure than other models of its generation.

Boot space is fine for a couple or a small family – there’s enough room for the weekly shop and the other chores of family life. No clever cubbies inside, but the glovebox is a good size.
