I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Volkswagen offers a low APR and Deposit cotribution on the Golf Family of cars, time to buy ?**

  • **Exclusion apply please read carefully
  • Improved finance offer of £2,000 deposit contribution and 5.4 per cent APR
  • Available across the bulk of the Golf line-up until June 30 2016
  • Volkswagen Golf range starts from £17,625.00 (RRP OTR)
Volkswagen is extending the appeal of its renowned Golf range of family hatchback models with the introduction of a generous new £2,000 deposit contribution and 5.4 per cent APR for private customers who purchase a new Golf via Volkswagen Financial Services from now until Thursday 30 June.

The offer, activated when new customers take out a Personal Contract Purchase plan through Volkswagen Financial Services, applies across the Golf hatch family – with the exception of Golf GTE, Golf GTI Clubsport, Golf GTI Clubsport S and e-Golf models.
The comprehensive Golf hatch family is today available in no fewer than 12 trim levels and models, meaning there is a Golf for everybody.  Depending on trim and model choice the cars are available in three- or five-door versions while the majority offer a choice of manual or automatic DSG gearboxes.  The range starts with the entry-level Golf S and rises in stages to the iconic Golf GTI – this year celebrating its 40th anniversary – and incomparable Golf R.
Every Golf offers a high level of standard equipment and includes for instance, as a minimum, the Composition Media system which boasts a 6.5-inch colour touchscreen, Bluetooth telephone and audio connection, car information display, DAB digital radio receiver and CD player.
The Volkswagen Golf also has a plethora of standard safety features including ABS (Anti-lock Braking System); ESC (Electronic Stability Control); and ASR (traction control).  The Golf has driver’s and front passenger’s airbags and a curtain airbag system for front and rear passengers.  Front seat side impact airbags and a driver’s knee airbag add additional peace of mind, as does the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System.
In addition, the Golf includes an electronic parking brake with an auto-hold function that is especially useful when stopped on an incline.  Fuel efficiency is enhanced by the automatic Stop/Start system.
The Golf S is available from just £17,625 RRP OTR, and the Match Edition (from £20,690 RRP OTR) offers a variety of extra standard equipment including Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC); driver profile selection; and parking sensors.
The Performance Golfs start with the GT Edition (from £24,215 RRP OTR) and the R-Line Edition (from £25,210 RRP OTR), both of which offer sports styling with 18-inch alloy wheels as well as a panoramic sunroof.  The Golf GTI (from £27,495 RRP OTR) and its diesel cousin, the GTD (from £26,995 RRP OTR), are genuinely iconic hot hatches that need no introduction, or explanation.  Meanwhile the all-wheel-drive 4MOTION Golf R (from £31,685 RRP OTR) rounds out the broad Golf range.
Many models come with a choice of engines which all include energy-saving BlueMotion Technology. The range starts with the 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine that has an emissions figure of 99 g/km* and combined fuel consumption of 65.7 mpg*.  The petrol offering continues with a 1.4-litre TSI unit offering 125 PS, a 1.4 TSI with ACT cylinder deactivation and 150 PS on tap, and a 2.0-litre TSI engine that is available with outputs of 220 PS, 265 PS, 300 PS or 310 PS.
The three diesel engines begin with a 1.6-litre TDI unit that has an output of 110 PS and has a combined cycle figure from 70.6 mpg.  The 2.0-litre TDI is available with either 150 PS or 184 PS.  The combined fuel economy figures range from 58.9 mpg to 67.3 mpg.
