The Golf is a definitive benchmark for the whole automobile industry, not just its manufacturer Volkswagen.

As it stands, the latest iteration of the Golf already has enough in its arsenal to make it a serious contender for best compact hatchback, but with more engines and tech soon to be released, it really is one to consider if you’re in the market for a smaller car.

The compact sports version of the Golf delivers a spectacular 245PS with its 2.0 I TSI engine that can take just 6.4 seconds to take you to 62mph from standstill. All that power under the hood can help you reach a restricted top speed of 155mph, but you won’t just have to stick to straight roads as the stability-aiding front differential lock can help you enjoy windy country roads too.

Mk8 Golf

The new Golf 8 is the first model to feature Volkswagen’s e-TSI engine. The e-TSI contains mild-hybrid technology, and uses a lithium ion battery to drive the engine at lower speeds to reduce emissions and fuel consumption dramatically. The energy from coasting and braking is also harnessed to recharge the battery, giving you even more efficiency and lower running costs.
