Volkswagen Golf MkII

At our £1500 price level, you can forget all about owning a MkII Golf GTi unless you’re either very lucky or the car is in need of major work. Better instead to focus on the standard models; they might not offer excitement, but they are well-built, solid-feeling and ideal for the classic winter commute.

The second-generation Golf arrived in 1983 and came in a plethora of different trim levels. Best of the non-GTi line-up is the 1.6 Driver, a GTi lookalike with a sporty feel. But if money is tight, there’s no shame in opting for a standard C, CL or GL instead.
