Do you want to privately lease a Volkswagen Golf? Here are 13 (!) cheaper alternatives -

You want to lease a hatchback privately and are considering the Volkswagen Golf. Logical, because it is pretty much the standard choice in this segment. However, a look at our private lease comparator shows us that there are no fewer than 13 cheaper alternatives to private lease, some of which will surprise you.

Private leasing is the ideal way to drive a new car without any worries. Most costs such as road tax, depreciation, insurance and maintenance are bundled together in a monthly amount. Only the fuel is added.

What do you get as standard in the Golf? And for what price?

The Volkswagen Golf is one of the cars that you can privately lease via our comparator. But what do you get on the entry-level version of the Golf? This version is called Life and has the following features as standard:

The Golf is powered as standard by a three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 110 hp and 200 Nm. It is fast: the standard sprint takes 10 seconds and the top speed is 202 km/h. The trunk fits 381 liters of luggage.

The Volkswagen Golf is available in combination with private lease from €539.00 per month with a term of 72 months and 5,000 km per year. look at all the Volkswagen Golf Prices.

What can you lease for the same or less money?

In our private lease comparator there are no fewer than 13 options in the Golf class with a lower monthly amount. This concerns the following cars:

Standard equipment

On hot days you will be cool in all Golf alternatives, because they all have air conditioning. Six cars come with automatic climate control. Cruise control is also standard, but only 5 of the 13 cars have adaptive cruise control, like the Golf.

Alloy wheels are almost standard in this class: only the Hyundai i30 and Toyota Corolla have steel rims. LED lighting all around is not that standard. This is installed in the MG4, Skoda Scala, Ford Focus, Opel Astra, Seat Leon, Mazda3, Megane E-Tech and Audi A3. Lane departure warning is on all cars.

An automatic gearbox is only standard for electric cars, the Toyota Corolla and the Audi A3. If you want to use Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, the Hyundai i30 alone does not meet your needs.

Petrol, hybrid or electric

Only the BMW 1 Series compares to the Volkswagen Golf in terms of power. Furthermore, all cars have the same or more power. Speaking of the drivetrain: 2 cars have a mild hybrid drivetrain (i30 and Focus), the Corolla is a full hybrid and three cars are fully electric (MG4, Leaf, Megane).


The Volkswagen Golf is downright expensive. You may be driving a hatchback with a rock-solid reputation, but you can also say the same about the Audi A3 and the BMW 1-series. In any case, it is strange that a Volkswagen is more expensive than an Audi or a BMW.

And if you really want a car from the Volkswagen group, a Skoda Scala or Seat Leon will be much cheaper. If you are going to lease privately and want to keep the only cost item you still have to pay (gasoline) as low as possible, go for the economical Toyota Corolla Hybrid. If you want to make the leap to electric driving, take the MG4 for a test drive.
