Another great testdrive vid from fresh digital online magazine iMOTOR.

For a story of the previous five generations of Golf – that helped make the car such an acknowledged market leader, check out the Veloce book VW Golf - Five Generations of Fun by Richard Copping. The combination of model history, coupled to hot hatch performance, all comprehensively illustrated through major photo shoots and detail pictures, make this the complete guide to the five Golf generations. With all models, including Golf spin-offs, assessed, enthusiast-driving opinions shared and marketing policy discussed, this book is a unique hot Golfology!

Forthcoming.. VW Golf GTI – The Essential Buyer’s Guide by Richard Copping and Kenneth Cservenka. While old MkI Golfs have by now largely rusted away, the availability of MkII models at giveaway prices is plentiful ... that is until three magic letters – GTI – appear on the car’s front grille and hatch. Find a good example of the MkI with the aid of this guide and you are in clover! The Buyer’s Guide carefully charts all the models that an enthusiast just has to own, from the iconic late model MkI with its pocket rocket 1.8-litre engine and 5-speed box, through to the exclusive, extremely powerful and much sought-after limited edition Rallye Golf.
