A household name for good reason, it’s easy to underestimate the Golf until you spend time in one. One of the best all-rounders on sale, almost every detail has been perfected over its seven generations, and the facelifted 2017 model brings even more improvements. The interior is as classy as ever, but now has one of the best infotainment systems in the business. New technology like pedestrian detection boosts safety, while Traffic Jam Assist can drive the car semi-autonomously.
