The evolution of the Golf SV

The VW Golf SV is a trailblazer in many respects. As the SUV and MPV became more popular, VW developed an alternative for buyers who wanted something a little different. The beauty of this vehicle lies in its ability to cover all bases. A used Volkswagen Golf SV offers the style, agility and performance of an SUV as well as the functionality of the MPV. The result is a car that caters to a diverse range of buyers.

The first Golf SV hit the roads in 2014. The idea was to replace the Golf Plus with a medium-sized vehicle that combined the speed and appeal of a nippy hatchback with the practicality of an MPV. VW expanded the range of engine options to give buyers more choice and the opportunity to drive a more efficient vehicle. In 2017, the SV was updated and revamped to modernise the design, enhance safety with an array of new features and provide additional benefits for families, including versatile seating options and extra storage inside the main cabin and the boot.

Buying a second-hand Golf SV

If you’re looking for a second-hand Golf SV, it’s worth taking the time to compare models, browse offers and find the perfect vehicle for you. Here are some tips to help you find the right used Golf SV:

Set a budget

The Golf SV has been around for over six years now. The age of the vehicle will impact the cost, but there are also additional factors to consider, including the mileage and condition, the trim, the engine and options and extras. Before you start looking for a used VW Golf SV, it’s wise to set a budget and decide whether you want to pay a lump sum or spread the cost. If the exact car you want is over your budget, you could think about spreading the cost via monthly payments or choosing a model that is slightly older or lower spec.

Explore your options

There are multiple options to explore when buying a second-hand Golf SV, including different engines, trim levels and features. Think about what kinds of extras and add-ons would benefit you and your passengers and how you plan to use the vehicle. If you drive long distances, for example, you might be looking to get more miles to the gallon. If you have a family, practical options and safety are likely to be a priority. Compare different cars and think about how they would work for you.

Trim, engine options and features

Trims and options

The Golf SV comes in five different trims: S, SE, SE Navigation, GT and Match. The trim options dictate what kinds of features are available, as well as the styling of the vehicle. The GT is the sportiest option while the entry-level S trim caters to those looking for an economical, reliable car that also looks the part. The SE and SE Navigation trims tick more boxes for those looking to enjoy the mod cons. Features on the SE include alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control, folding tables in the back, extra storage and an entertainment system that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android. The SE Navigation also offers satellite navigation.


Buyers can choose from a range of petrol and diesel engines, including:

  • 1.0 TSI
  • 1.5 TSI EVO
  • 1.6 TDI
  • 2.0 TDI

The entry-level Golf SV S comes with a 1.0 TSI 84bhp engine. For those keen to scale up and inject a little more oomph, the 1.0 litre engine is also available in a 113bhp version. The larger diesel TDI engines are available in 113hp (1.6 litre) and 148hp (2.0 litre).
