Car reviews - Volkswagen - Bora - V5 sedan
The Bora was the four-door sedan version of the Mk4 VW Golf
28 Jun 2001
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 date: 1 December 1999 to 1 February 2006
