Used Volkswagen Golf offers good value in the hatchback market

Motorists looking for a good value hatchback car for under £10,000 may find a used Volkswagen Golf to be right up their street, according to a magazine.

Which? has indicated that the Mk 5 Golf is currently being sold at a reasonable price, with models potentially available at half the cost of when they were being sold new.

The magazine specifically looked at the 2005 offering, which is declared as still being a "popular choice" among motorists.

Furthermore, it is stated that motorists may prefer to buy a 2.0-litre diesel model if they can afford it, as this is "quieter and more refined" than the 1.9-litre diesel offering.

Which? specifically recommended the Volkswagen Golf 2005 2.0 GT TDI five-door hatch, which generates 145g/km of carbon dioxide.

Among the reasons why the Mk 5 Golf has significantly fallen in price is the introduction of the Mk 6 car.

Meanwhile, the Volkswagen Golf was recently voted as the 2009 World Car of the Year at the New York International Motor Show.
