I de­mand a re­count…

CAR (UK) - - Car Interactive -

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
