Volkswagen Golf MkIV – 20 years

After the disappointment of the lacklustre MkIII Golf came the eagerly awaited MkIV in October 1997, the model that brought sharp styling and a rewarding driving experience back to the Golf brand. The MkIV remained on sale for seven years, and during that time generated desirable sporting derivatives like the (150bhp) 1.8T GTi, the (also 150bhp) V5 and the (204bhp) V6 4Motion – the latter combining Volkswagen's classic 2.8-litre VR6 engine with all the extra grip of four-wheel drive. The MkIV reached its pinnacle in 2002 when Volkswagen announced the limited-production Golf R32, with a 3.2-litre 24-valve VR6 motor pushing out 237bhp.
