Sorry about introducing you to some of my weirder thoughts, but occasionally when I daydream, thoughts turn to a fantasy computer program that will pick and create the perfect car for me.
You’d simply type in your requirements. In my case: sensible money (around £20k), practicality, enough poke to be useful and entertaining, something that will transport me to the back of beyond in comfort and still be entertaining and something that won’t fall to pieces.
The trouble is that I don’t think that I need a sophisticated IT solution to know the answer. Because I’m pretty sure that the answer will be a VW Golf GTI 5dr. Having just read Greg Kable’s review of the newly fettled Mk6 version, it sounds like it’s even more on the money.
The Golf GTI may sound like a boring, predictable choice. But I’d buy one, wouldn’t you?
