Volkswagen Golf S
The Volkswagen Golf S is a mid range model of this incredibly popular hatchback that offers a solid amount of kit, great driving experience, excellent practicality and nothing but a friendly and ‘can do’ attitude. It’s ideal for families, people on a budget or those who just want something that works well every time and doesn’t mess around. Safe, reliable and secure, it definitely ticks all the right boxes and goes the extra mile to be the best. The Golf has been an icon for decades, and this model is certainly no different. In terms of engines, you’ll find 1.2 to 1.6 litre petrols and 1.6 to 2.0 litre diesels.
Friendly, perky and definitely a positive looking car, the Volkswagen Golf S is just uplifting to behold and really makes you want to get in and go. It’s nice inside too where the trim finish is of great quality, there’s no lack of space and practicality isn’t a problem either thanks to the 350 litre boot; everyday use is just a breeze. On the kit side of things, you’ll spot air con, steel wheels, CD stereo, electric windows, cloth seats, airbags, driver assists, alarm, heated mirrors, spare wheel, service indicator and even remote locking. Out on the road it’s agile, responsive and just behaves well, especially around town where a certain nippiness becomes evident. Get one for £4,000 used.
