Click below to read car reviews of the Volkswagen Golf
. At Review Centre we have thousands of reviews of cars including other Volkswagen makes and models, both new and used, like the Volkswagen Polo, Volkswagen Corrado and the Volkswagen Passat.
The Golf Mk IV was the heaviest and largest, and allegedly slowest version of the Golf brand to date, but still it became the biggest selling car in Europe for a while.
It was a deliberate attempt to take the Golf more upmarket with better quality interior and equipment spec. The Mk IV Golf was introduced in 1997 with choice of hatchbacks (with three or five-doors) or estates, petrol or diesel engines, manual or automatic transmission and front or four-wheel drive.
Golfs have an overall reputation for reliability, solid build and quality finish although you will find some of our reviewers occasionally disagree.
