Buying a second-hand Golf Estate is a great way to make owning a Golf more affordable and gain access to a wider range of options and trims. If you are thinking about buying a used Volkswagen Golf Estate, it’s beneficial to take these tips on board:
Consider your lifestyle
When you’re shopping for a used car, it’s useful to think about your lifestyle and how you’re going to use the vehicle. Do you have a family or pets? Do you plan to use the car for work purposes? Do you have hobbies or interests that involve transporting equipment or large items like bikes or surfboards? Do you drive long distances or are you a city driver? Once you’ve answered these questions, you should be able to narrow down your options in terms of models, versions and trims to find the right car for you.
Set a budget
The price of used Golf Estates varies according to the age of the car, the condition and mileage, the trim and the engine. Before you start your used VW Golf search, it’s wise to analyse your finances and set a budget. You can buy a car outright or spread the cost and you can save by buying slightly older cars or opting for more basic trims.
Explore options and features
Modern-day vehicles are packed with features that are designed to create a pleasant driving experience, enhance safety and comfort and add serious style. There are multiple options to choose from and you can filter the results based on extras that are attractive or appealing to you. If you drive long distances, for example, you might be interested in cruise control. If you have kids, extra storage and advanced safety features are ideal.
Trims, engines and extras
The Golf Estate comes in a range of trims with engine options and extras to suit a broad spectrum of buyers.
The entry-level S version boasts an impressive range of standard features, which can be seen across the Golf family.
