XV or Golf?

Asked by Sam O'Boyle

We own a 2010 Subaru Forester and would like to downsize. We are looking at the Subaru 2.0-litre XV or the Volkswagen Golf 1.4-litre turbo. What do you think? We do a lot of highway trips and we're not sure how the Golf will perform on long runs. Is there another car we should look at?

My choice would definitely be the Golf, for comfort and the range and economy on the highway. The XV is all right but not great, with a tiny boot, so the VW gets The Tick.
