Add to that the fact that they’re also inexpensive to purchase, use a minimal amount of fuel, are graced with chic styling, and you have a winning combination on your hands!
But which one of these hatchbacks is the best? OpenRoad Volkswagen has pitted the perennial favourite – the VW Golf – against the latest metal from rivals Ford and Mazda. Lets see which hatch ends up on top!
