The VW Golf has long been considered one of the best in class and the Mk 8 is still firmly at the top table of hatches on the market. While it uses the MQB platform that was present in the Mk 7, the updates elsewhere are noticeable.
From the outside, the new Golf 8 combines the fundamental attributes that have made Golfs the king of hatchbacks. The tail lamps have been reshaped, the LED headlamps are improved, and the panels are more finessed. Subtle changes that cement its place as VWs best hatch.
Whether it's the standard setup or an R-Line trim, the VW Golf Motability car offers 1.0l, 1.5l, and 2l solutions. Both manual and automatic options are also available, taking the sense of control and personalisation to new levels.
The new VW Golf does look significantly different on the inside thanks to a new glass cockpit that boasts a wide range of new connections. Meanwhile, the pleasantly spacious interior for drivers and passengers makes it a great hatch for disabled drivers and carers alike. The array of assisted driving facilities are highly pleasing too.
The VW Golf is one of the safest purchases on the market and one of the most respected cars suited to the Motability scheme.
