The Golf MK2 is a popular used car choice – and rightly so – with plenty of good cars still around. Its reliability and build quality have won many fans, while the performance of the GTis has allowed many to get sports car performance for family car prices.
Volkswagen Golf Hatchback (84-92)
Solid VW quality, good performance from GTi
So very Eighties, not so very practical

New price range:

£4,967 - £17,261

The Golf MK2 is a popular used car choice – and rightly so – with plenty of good cars still around. Its reliability and build quality have won many fans, while the performance of the GTis has allowed many to get sports car performance for family car prices. As such demand remains high.

What owners say...

 It's easy to drive. Easy to park and nippy in and out of town.

 Its a pocket rocket. 1.6 but has quite some punch. Loads of boot space available and very practical. good space in the back too.
