This current seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf might just be all the car you'll ever need. Jonathan Crouch takes a look.
With the up! GTI, Volkswagen rekindles the spirit of shopping rockets past. Jonathan Crouch checks it out.
If you think you'd need a very good reason to buy a compact MPV with fewer than seven seats, you might like the Golf SV. It offers a range of very good reasons. The class, style and quality on offer here are certainly very tempting compensations for the absence of those extra chairs. And if you have decided that you can do without the additional pews, an SV certainly stacks up very well against the other potential five-seat solutions on offer for families seeking more flexibility than an ordinary Golf or Focus family hatch could offer. Do you really want the mundanity of an estate or a converted van, the rather self-conscious funkiness of a Qashqai-style crossover - or the maternity unit practicality of, say, a Scenic or a C-MAX?
Here's a slightly different way to go. A proper Golf that is also the kind of proper People Carrier its Golf Plus predecessor never was. True, other five-seater MPVs from this era can offer you slightly more space and seat-fumbling flexibility, but the incremental benefits they deliver aren't really very significant. Overall, this is a car that adds a dash of desirability to the business of owning what is, at the end of the day, nothing more than a practical family tool. The result is a car you could be proud of.
As long as you don't need seven-seats in your large used luxury SUV from the 2014 to 2017 era, this improved second generation Volkswagen Touareg is hard option to ignore if you're looking for an appealing balance between style, speed and 'SUV'-ness, with reasonable pricing and running costs that suggest more modest means. True, it doesn't have the brand cachet of some of its illustrious rivals - but perhaps that's no bad thing. For this car's loyal band of buyers, the Touareg's unpretentious approach is, after all, one of its biggest draws. It's a pity though, that so few of them know exactly how capable it is in the rough stuff.
As for the updates made to this improved second generation model - the greater efficiency, the extra safety, the new technology and the smarter look - well all of it was welcome and usefully enhanced this Volkswagen's appeal in its class. Your choice in this segment can be both quick and capable. And pretty stylish too - on any terrain. Try this car - and you'll understand how.
The Volkswagen Golf SV has evolved - primarily beneath the bonnet. Jonathan Crouch tries the revised version of this mid-sized five-seat MPV and its clever 1.5-litre TSI EVO petrol engine.
Volkswagen hopes to attract younger buyers to its Polo supermini with this 'Beats' variant. Jonathan Crouch takes a look.
