The Volkswagen Citi Golf is a right-hand drive 5-door hatchback manufactured and marketed by Volkswagen in South Africa from 1984-2009 as a face-lifted version of the first generation Volkswagen Golf Mk1, which ceased production in Germany in 1983.

In 2004, the Citi Golf received a facelift that included a new dashboard lifted from the Škoda Fabia, as well as larger front side windows. The rear wiper-washer combination was also moved into the glass of the (now standard) heated rear window to give the car a more sleek appearance. Along with this modification, the rear window was curved in such a way that it resembled a sort of "bubble"-like appearance, presumably to eliminate the annoying reflection of sunlight from the flat, steeply sloped window into the eyes of other drivers following behind.

The 2006 facelift saw modifications to the front bumper (adding a second grille in the integrated apron) as well as new, unique-to-South-Africa taillights incorporating a circular inset taillight–brakelight combination. Before this facelift, all Citi Golfs were fitted with the early 1980s style rear tail light cluster very much like those on the Euro Mk.1s, but these were now locally manufactured by Hella.

This 2006 Volkswagen Citi Golf is a very original car and recently imported into the UK from South Africa. In relation to history, the speedometer reading of 80,000 is in kilometres, and the original service schedule booklet is in the glove box that documents 9 services being carried out during its life time in South Africa. The vendor states that the overall condition of the bodywork is very good and mechanically the vehicles drives well and has the benefit of a long MOT. As you would expect, the car appears to be rust free due to the climate of South Africa and looks great in this very nice colour.
