When the small family car market is strewn with forgotten models and new pretenders, the Volkswagen Golf endures and improves. This seventh generation Golf may not be radical but it is rarefied, being bigger, lighter, safer and more fuel efficient than its predecessor to help broaden appeal even further.

Finally, the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet is back. With a quick roof, excellent engines and a sturdy chassis, we expect it to be just as successful as its predecessors and upset its rivals.

The Golf R is nothing like the Focus RS. It's subtle and quiet, with four-instead of front-wheel drive for a surefooted drive. Great car, but the Golf GTI is better value.

The Volkswagen Golf R32 is the car for when the Golf GTi just isn't enough. It might be a little faster, a little more comfortable and a little more exclusive, but for performance junkies, these little bits add up to a lot. Powered by a big 3.2-litre V6 engine, the Golf R32 features Volkswagen's acclaimed 4Motion four-wheel drive system making it a stunning cross country cruiser. We spent several hundred miles behind the wheel to find out if it's just a posh GTi or something entirely different.

Volkswagen’s BlueMotion badge was first introduced at the launch of the ultra-efficient diesel Polo last year, and Volkswagen plan to offer nine BlueMotion models by the end of 2008. Andy Goodwin has just driven the Polo’s big brother, the Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion, which is the most important of the batch, thanks to the Golf’s wide appeal and sales success across the UK. Volkswagen hasn’t taken the Toyota approach of designing advanced hybrid technologies, instead sticking with the formula it used to create the Polo BlueMotion – using a tried and tested diesel engine in the most efficient way possible.

The Volkswagen Golf range has ballooned as part of a product offensive, with not just the hatchback, but also the GTD, GTI and now the Estate and BlueMotion versions all being launched within months of each other. We've driven the load-lugging Estate for the first time to see if a big boot spoils the Golf or adds even more appeal.
