Volkswagen Golf Overview

The redesigned Golf is slightly larger, yet lower and lighter than the previous model, with a roomier rear seat. VW has finally ditched the coarse and antiquated base five-cylinder engine in favor of a smoother and more powerful 170-hp, 1.8-liter turbo four-cylinder that also gets better fuel economy, returning 28 mpg in our tests. Transmission choices are a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic. Handling is responsive, the ride is comfortable, and the cabin has a solid and upscale feel. A new Infotainment system includes 3D navigation and a touch screen that responds to swipe inputs. The Golf TDI gets an all-new 150-hp, 2.0-liter diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automatic.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
