Superb kit as standard, very short options list tells its own story

Reasonable servicing, and mid 40s MPG without too much of an effort

Very good for a diesel, especially when chipped. No avoiding the noise though.

No major probs, just general rattles.

More sporty than the boring Golf it's based on.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Pay extra for leather. I didn't, and can get some back pain on longer journeys
