For many, the Ford Focus embodies the whole small family car sector. It’s one of the best cars of its type to drive, with agile handling, a comfortable ride and punchy engines. It’s also affordable to buy and run, and it’s practical enough for a small family.
The Golf is a car that ticks pretty much every box: great to drive; lovely to sit in; and, more affordable to own than you might think. Whether you’re after an economical runabout, a practical family estate or a thrilling hot hatch, the Golf range has you covered.
The new Astra is among the front-runners in the small family hatchback class, and considering the strength of the competition, that’s praise indeed. Comfortable and engaging to drive, well equipped and easy to live with, it’s an excellent all-rounder.
