The redesigned Golf is a notch above other compacts and is priced accordingly. Power comes from a smooth, strong 170-hp, 1.8-liter turbo four-cylinder that returned 28 mpg overall in our tests with the six-speed automatic. Handling is very responsive, the ride is comfortable, and the quiet cabin has a solid and upscale feel. A high-performance all-wheel-drive Golf R and an electric eGolf complete the line. USB ports were added for 2016, as well as lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and cross-traffic alert. Reliability of the redesign has been much below average. The diesel version is under investigation by the EPA for not complying with emissions regulations.
