Volkswagen Golf Hatchback (2020 - )

The Golf is a true benchmark, not just for Volkswagen but for the wider industry. Suffice to say, an all-new generation is a big moment and all the stops have been pulled out to make this new Golf as technically advanced and of-the-moment as possible, all the while maintaining the understated premium feel and quality we’ve come to expect. More tech and engines will follow, but this latest Golf already has enough in its locker to make it one of the best compact hatchbacks you can buy.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The Golf is the quintessential “people’s car”, so low running costs are crucial. Fuel economy and emissions figures are very competitive, with CO2 emissions of just 110g/km (WLTP) for the most efficient diesel versions currently available.

Volkswagen will expand the range of engine options over the coming months, adding mild hybrid versions that use some electric assistance to improve efficiency. There will also be plug-in hybrid models that will be offer enough electric-only range to allow some drivers to commute without using any fuel.

List prices are are a touch higher than those of rivals such as the Ford Focus, but less than those of premium-badge alternatives such as the Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series. Residual values are likely to be above average, so leasing and finance deals should be competitive.
