If you don’t need mega space, the eighth-gen Volkswagen Golf is perhaps the most cost effective car that can deliver everything a Singaporean driver could want
For a car that started out as a replacement for the original, aging VW Beetle in 1974 and essentially a means of getting people mobile in an affordable way, the Volkswagen Golf has come a long way.
Singapore saw a delayed start for the eighth-generation car because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the resultant production restrictions at VW’s factory, but we’re now up to speed with the Golf after an 18-month wait.
