The Golf is turning 45. On 29 March 1974, the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg officially started production of what would become its best-seller. Since then, the successor to the legendary Beetle has sold more than 35 million units all over the world. In purely mathematical terms, a new Golf has been ordered somewhere in the world every 41 seconds, every day, without interruption, since the start of production (SOP) 45 years ago. That is an average of around 780,000 vehicles per year.

The Golf’s reputation makes it one of the most sought after used cars, and with suitably high residual values. Despite being around since 2012, the Mk7 still looks fresh, a fact aided by the subtle updates in 2017 that require a spot-the-difference comparison.
Volkswagen has enhanced the equipment of its popular Golf, with SE and SE Navigation trim levels now replaced by the new, more generously equipped Match specification. In addition to the equipment standard on the outgoing SE and SE Navigation models, new Match specification Golfs now receive a new alloy wheel design, front fog lights, Discover Navigation and tinted rear windows as standard
The European car industry had a solid 2017, with new registrations totalling 15.57 million, an increase of 3.1 per cent when compared to 2016 and the highest volume of registrations since 2007 when 16.02 million units were registered
A household name for good reason, it’s easy to underestimate the Golf until you spend time in one.

Volkswagen says the new models cost an average of £650 less than the outgoing car. Diesels start at £19,770 for the three-door Golf s 1.6 TDI. The updated cars will arrive in UK showrooms towards the end of March
