Introduction

The Golf is a small family car which is produced and manufactured by Volkswagen, as it has been since 1974. The name of the vehicle comes from the German word for Gulf Stream. The Golf has established itself as a household name in the automotive world with its unparalleled success over the course of nearly 40 years, becoming one of the best selling cars of all time.

The car has seen many changes over its lifetime, and is set to enter its seventh generation in early 2013. It is manufactured all over the world and is sold on all six of the major continents. The Golf comes in many different forms – as a 3-door or 5-door hatchback, a 5-door estate and a 2-door convertible. There have also been several electric versions made over the years. Current ranges include the Golf, Golf Cabriolet, Golf Plus and Golf Estate.

In Britain over 1.5 million Golfs have been sold, which makes it the eighth most popular car ever sold there. Consequently it is not hard to see why there are so many used Volkswagen Golf cars on UK roads. If you are driving in and around a busy city centre it is very unlikely that you’ll not see at least a couple.
