I demand a recount…
VIA EMAIL A day spent swanning around the Welsh mountains hardly exercises a car, and that showed in the verdict of your June Giant Test, where the best car came third.
The Mini JCW has just enough room in it for a midget and one gum boot, while the Peugeot 308 GTi has appalling residuals and is so tinny you can press in every body panel with your little finger! In the last six weeks I’ve driven nearly 2000 miles in all conditions and can verify that the VW Golf GTI is beautifully made, has a turbine-smooth engine with outstanding grunt between 50 and 80mph, and in Sport mode sounds amazing.
Rewrite the pecking order – the Golf is clearly first and the other two so-called competitors equal third! Charles Bennie
