When you think of the Volkswagen Golf, it is likely that what comes to mind is a stylish family hatchback that is great for driving around the city thanks to its compact yet refined design.

As the 65-reg plate is released and thousands of drivers begin their search for a brand new car though, specialist dealership Inchcape Volkswagen has taken a look at their Volkswagen Golf range to showcase that there is actually a lot more variety to this popular vehicle:

Volkswagen Golf S

For the driver who: wants value for money

Reasons why: The Volkswagen Golf S has everything you would expect from a standard Golf — it has a fantastic amount of cabin space, offers superb levels of comfort to drivers and passengers alike, and has been made using high-quality equipment and materials. However, it is completed with a whole host of exciting extras.

For one, every engine that can be found under the bonnet of a Golf S has been turbocharged to enhance driveability. Step inside this family car and you will also find a hi-tech 5.8-inch touchscreen on the dashboard, which grants access to DAB radio, a CD player and Bluetooth connectivity as standard.

Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion

For the driver who: is after an economically friendly vehicle

Reasons why: The numbers behind the Volkswagen Golf BlueMotion helps to answer this. The German manufacturer claims that this variant of the Golf is capable of producing a phenomenal 88mpg, while at the same time limiting CO2 emissions to a mere 85g/km.

Your fuel costs are kept even lower by the fact that the Golf BlueMotion offers long gear rations for maximum efficiency, not to mention that its 15-inch alloy wheels are wrapped in low rolling resistance tyres.

Volkswagen Golf GTE hybrid

For the driver who: seeks the perfect balance between fuel economy and the thrill of driving

Reasons why: Just like with the Golf BlueMotion, the facts and figures surrounding the Volkswagen Golf GTE hybrid are among the car’s key talking points.

Through a combination of a 1.4 turbocharged petrol engine and an electric motor, this plug-in vehicle can produce 166mpg and limit CO2 emissions to just 39g/km. All of this while also being able to excite drivers by accelerating to 62mph from rest in a mere 7.6 seconds and delivering a blistering 201bhp.

Volkswagen Golf R-Line

For the driver who: likes their car to catch the eye

Reasons why: Style is the name of the game when it comes to the Volkswagen Golf R-Line. Take a walk around this hatchback and you are sure to spot the car’s sporty rear spoiler, side skirts, 17-inch Singapore alloy wheels and both front and rear bumpers.

The fun doesn’t stop once you are inside the cabin of the Golf R-Line though, as you will be instantly greeted with comfy R-Line embossed front sport seats. There’s a lot of stylish touches that have been applied all around the car’s interior too, from a leather gearknob to the pedals and front door sills being finished in stainless steel.
