Big enough for luggage or a buggy, it’s extremely practical.

Everything is well assembled and stylish. Statement dashpads and high quality fabrics feature in every edition and, with no less than six available, there is something to suit every personality.

For performance, the GTI 1.0 TSI 115 PS with six-speed gearbox is surprisingly powerful and can achieve 0-62mph in just 8.8 seconds.
