The latest Volkswagen Golf could be the optimum car for motorists looking for something that will be cheap to run while offering the refinement typically found in a larger vehicle, according to a reviewer.
Writing for the Aberdeen Press & Journal, Richard M. Hammond states that the new Golf impresses in a host of areas from the standards of the interior to what can be achieved when on the road.
He comments that the Golf features "supportive and comfortable" cloth seats, while high-quality materials are used throughout.
Meanwhile, large amounts of space are up for use in the rear thanks to the car’s high roof, with Mr Hammond also pointing out that the boot is both wide and square, which could potentially be of benefit to families.
On the road, he remarks that a "brisk performance" can be witnessed through the Golf’s 1.6-litre engine, which is smooth and "reasonably nimble".
Overall, Mr Hammond concludes that the new Golf is "going to be a hard car to follow", due to it being "very hard to fault".
According to Volkswagen, motorists getting behind the wheel of the latest Golf will experience "pure driving pleasure".
