No, but there is a Mk5. It is VERY good.

It will surprise you. I recommend the diesel 2 litre 16 valve Euro 4.

I recall the Mk IV being launched (I've had one) and the motoring press were astonished at the price, build quality, interior, refinement etc. etc.

Within a year is was old hat, boring, underpowered, unreliable, poor chassis, not as good as the Focus, etc. etc.

Best to drive one and form your own opinion I reckon.

I agree. After the new VW Golf Mk V launch everyone will wax lyrical how much better is was over the old one. Then we get into the 'Old Ones Suffered From...' syndrome.

I know that they will improve the new car somewhat, but the outgoing model is still a great car-I sold mine after 4 years for 58% what I paid for it new.

By the way...I would not buy the new Mk V for at least a year; let them get the production niggles sorted and allow them to cut in the problem fixes reported by owners after launch. I'm an engineer..seen it all before: Cars launched when they are not quite 100% ready....
