The VW Golf really is the perfect car for most people. It’s a small, fun to drive hatchback that can accommodate 95% of driving needs. It looks good, it’s reliable and it’s affordable. It also offers two different variants that offer an increasing amount of power and fun for those looking for more.
However, taste tends to run toward larger vehicles. Jack up the suspension and add some plastic cladding and the Golf would probably find more buyers (it would also make it a T-Roc, so we’ll get to see how that sells.)
