2009 Car of the Week

Motor Mouth’s Car of the week: Volkswagen Golf Estate

Sensible as a cosy sweater, reliable as a faithful dog, a Golf is as close as it comes to backing a cert in the motoring stakes.

It’s got build quality and street cred, refinement and a dash of pizzazz, and the fourth generation of the Golf estate is gracing VW showrooms right now.

It arrives with a choice of three engines, which will be joined in the spring by two more, including a BlueMotion job that will take you almost to Australia and back on a thimbleful of diesel and puffs out the sweetest of breath.

The car has a sharper, sportier look, loads of standard gear and prices go from £16,380 for the 1.2-litre all the way up to £22,580 for the top-of-the-class Sportline 2.0-litre.

MM verdict: still the one to beat.
