Volkswagen / Bora / V5 sedan
OKAY, okay, okay.
So the Volkswagen Bora is basically a Golf with a boot.
But so what?
It certainly does not look like a Golf, and that's important because it is aimed at a slightly higher market.
And - especially in V5 form - it is an endearing, nicely styled, impeccably presented contender that offers a cheaper alternative to a BMW 3 Series or a Lexus IS200.
It carries with it VW structural integrity, excellent road manners and very, very high standards of quality, as well as a rewarding driving experience.
Still, some may say it is still expensive considering its origins.
Then again, that's what they say about the Audi A3.
Model release dates: December 1999 - February 2006
