Volkswagen Golf Leasing

You know exactly what the Volkswagen Golf is. It’s the family hatchback. The standard by which all others are judged. We’re onto the eighth one now, and while it doesn’t look very different from the outside - they never do, these things - it’s taken a huge leap forward in the cabin. A slightly controversial one, too. It’s all fully digital now. Yep, barely a button in sight. However, even with all these changes, the Golf still feels like home.

Top 3 Features

More advanced than ever before.

Intuitive infotainment system.

Practical, well made, and comfortable.

  • Volkswagen kept this Golf’s proportions largely the same as the outgoing model, including an identical wheelbase, meaning legroom as adequate for adults as before, and the boot is the same 381-litre size. It rises to 1237 litres with the seats down. You’ll find that all these hatchbacks benchmark each other for cabin space and boot volume, so you’re looking at a broadly similar space experience to, say, Ford Focus, a Vauxhall Astra or a Mercedes-Benz A-Class. But to give you some context, Volkswagen’s family crossover, the T-Roc, has 445 litres rising to 1532-litres.

    Cabin storage is similarly adequate, doing a job but never going above and beyond what you’d expect from a family hatchback; the cupholders are generous and there are two of them, there’s a bit of storage in the centre console for your phone and a few other bits, the door pockets are scooped specifically for a big bottle and the glove box will hold a little more than the user manual.

  • The Golf’s latest round of TDI diesel and TSI petrol engines mean that fuel economy is excellent across the board, especially now some of the petrols have been ‘electrified’ with mild hybrid technology; wherever you see ‘e-TSI’ that means it’s a mild hybrid. A good way of showing the difference that the mild hybrid tech makes is to compare the 110hp TSI manual with the Mild Hybrid automatic version: 53mpg versus 54.3mpg. Very similar, yes, but it’s rare to find an automatic that’s more economical than its manual counterpart.

    Broadly you’ll find that all the TSI petrol engines, high-performance GTI and R versions aside, give you official economy in the low- to mid-50s, while the diesels tip into realistic 60mpg+ territory. The most economical Golf, though, is the plug-in hybrid GTE model, which returns an amazing 246.1mpg official average economy figure with 26g/km CO2. In reality you’ll get nowhere near that number, but if you manage the 10.4kWh battery carefully (good for up to 40 miles of electric-only range, officially) you might get into three-figure economy on your commute.

Models Available

Hatchback

The standard five-door Golf. There’s no three-door model for this latest version and likely never will be. 

Estate

More boot, basically, up from 381 litres in the hatchback to 611, and with a few extra practicality flourishes. 

High Performance Models

Between the 266mpg GTE, the diesel GTD, the iconic GTI petrol models and the brutally quick 315hp Golf R, there’s a fast Golf for most tastes.

Trim Levels

Trim levels available: Life, Active, Style, R Line, GTE, GTD, GTI, GTI, Clubsport, R.The Golf has a whole host of popular trim levels available, with the GTI being one of the most well known and loved among enthusiasts. Check out our dedicated Golf trim guide for more detail on all of the above options.

The Volkswagen Golf Vs Competitors

The family hatchback segment is well established, decades old, and so it’s highly competitive. In other words, there are loads of these things. The Golf has always been the standard bearer for interior quality and ambience, but since ‘98 the Ford Focus has been the most dynamic, the most fun to drive. That’s still the case, although cars like the Mazda 3 and Peugeot 308 surpass the Golf for driver enjoyment too. There’s the ‘premium’ stuff to consider now as well, namely the Audi A3, BMW 1 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, all of which feel higher quality than the Golf inside and, arguably, look more interesting. Still, the Golf remains a brilliant all-rounder in every sense.See our dedicated article on the best alternatives to the Golf, or if you're looking for a Volkswagen specifically see how the gold compares with the Polo.
  • The Golf Mk8 uses a lot of the same parts as the reliable Golf Mk7 with some major improvements, so it will be a dependable car over the term of your 3-5-year lease. The interior electrics are more advanced on the Mk8, and a 3-year/60,000-mile manufacturer's warranty will cover any issues that may arise.

  • The hatchback models offer 381 litres with their rear seats up and a maximum of 1237 litres with the back row folded down. This figure drops slightly in the high-performance Golf R to 374 litres, on account of the rear differential for its 4-wheel-drive system. The more practical Golf Estate offers 611-1642 litres.

  • Volkswagen offers the Golf in the following trim levels: Life, Active, Style, Alltrack, R-Line, GTE, GTD, GTI, GTI Clubsport and then R. Some of these aren't available in both body styles - for example, the Alltrack is sold as a Golf Estate only, and while the top-spec R comes as both a hatch and an Estate, the GTI is only sold as a hatch.

  • Every model of Golf Mk8, from Life grade upwards, has both front and rear parking sensors.

  • It is a very practical car. Its designers have given the Golf Mk8 bigger windows so visibility in all directions is excellent, while the interior is laid out intuitively. Space for passengers in both the front and the back is very good, and there are several storage solutions in the cabin.

  • The Golf has become a popular car for its quality. With smooth engines, comfortable and quiet drive, and high-quality interior materials, the Golf is a great choice in the busy hatchback marketplace.
