Review Summary
Estate version of the best hatch isn’t the roomiest but it’s highly desirable.

Review Summary
There is almost nothing that the Golf GTD doesn't do well. It drives with precision and unexpected dynamism, sounds good when revved hard and can transport a chest of drawers home while the kids are in the car.

Review Summary
It’s a great car for those with families or drivers that just want that added bit of practicality over the standard Golf hatchback.

Review Summary
The Volkswagen Golf Estate is a very practical version of the popular hatchback. It’s not the cheapest model in its class, but it’s one of the best.

Review Summary
The VW Golf is one of our favourite estate cars. It's brilliant to drive, priced competitively and well equipped.

Review Summary
If you regularly need more loadspace than a five-door hatchback can offer, then an estate makes sense, and the Golf estate is particularly appealing.

Review Summary
The Golf Estate remains a logical choice for those seeking extra space. The £1,000 premium it commands over the equivalent hatch isn’t too steep, but a Skoda Octavia Estate still offers better value and more room.

Review Summary
It's taken Volkswagen a surprising amount of time to get here, but finally we have a Golf Estate that's up with the best.

Review Summary
The VW Golf Estate will cost you a bit more than some rivals. But it’s worth the extra because its more comfortable and its boot is both cavernous and clever. It's an excellent family estate.
