Still the King of the hatch? `
Entering into its 8th iteration, the Volkswagen Golf continues its legacy as a classy yet humble small family car. It is a versatile and well-rounded compact car known for its quality build, practical yet comfortable design. It remains a top contender in the Small Hatchback segment. One of the standout features of the Mk8 is its modern and refined interior. The cabin is adorned with decently high-quality materials, and the tech as well as infotainment system is fairly updated. The car offers a good balance between comfort and sportiness, making it suitable for both daily commuting and longer journeys. In terms of performance, the Life Plus and R-line comes with the Mild hybrid 1.5L Turbocharged engine which is a good compromise between performance and fuel efficiency. The handling is responsive, and the car delivers a smooth and enjoyable driving experience. Safety features are also well-implemented, with advanced driver assistance systems available in higher trim levels. The Mk8 Golf's exterior design is evolutionary, maintaining the familiar Golf silhouette while incorporating contemporary styling elements. The car's compact dimensions make it maneuverable in urban environments, and its hatchback configuration adds to its practicality. The Golf Mk8 is versatile and continues to be a popular choice in the compact car market both within and without Singapore.

Most enjoyable car i've owned `
Picked up my first brand new Golf Life Plus about 2 weeks ago, drove the Ibiza previously. Cabin is very familiar due to same MQB platform. Roomier and really comfy, a tad pricey thanks to the current COE but i feel i'm getting what i paid for. Love the build and premium feel. Reliability wise can't say it being my first Golf, but i guess most cars are the same as long as driven with care, it'll go a long way.

Fast and well-built, now available as a Cat A car `
It's the Golf. You get a premium cabin, even with the base trim car with all that solidly built feel when you move the seats, shut the door or press the buttons. And it's now made even more accessible.

Still a class above next to its peers `
