Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Anyone can get comfy in a Golf. The supportive seats are adjustable in several ways while the simple dash layout and good driving position make it an easy car to get on with. All the controls are accessible and feel superbly engineered, however the stereo controls are fiddly to use on the move.

The cabin is impeccably finished and puts some bigger and pricier models to shame. Space is well used and although rear space is limited on the three-door, the seats are very supportive and give a cosseted feel. It's fine in the back for a couple of growing kids, but adults will find it cramped. The seats are comfy and access ithree-door is easy enough to get in and out of.
