The Volkswagen Golf is like a takeaway menu – there is something for everyone. Those who fancy a meat dish, for example, select the 2.0 TSI DSG 5dr. This top-of-the range treat produces 270PS, rockets to 62mph in 5.5 seconds, and hits 155mph. However, this £33,315 meal is too spicy for some. They might prefer the entry-level 1.2 TSI. This is easier to swallow in many ways, as it costs from £15,865. It is still a Golf, however, so it has rock-solid handling, a composed ride, and sky-high image. Its construction is impressive too, so this mile-muncher should last until every chip in the UK has been eaten.

Now, choosing takeaway food can be tricky as there are so many options. The Volkswagen Golf Estate solves this problem as its boot is large enough for every item on the menu (maybe). Cargo capacity is a class-competitive 505-litres; increasing to a pleasing 1,495-litres when the rear seats are folded flat. Prices for this load-lugger start at only £18,070. And guess what? There is even a Golf for vegetarians and planet lovers. The BlueMotion 1.6TDI 3dr averages 74.3mpg, and returns 83.1mpg on the extra-urban cycle. Carbon emissions are a staggeringly low 99g/km. All for £18,860. Long live the Golf.
