Volkswagen Golf Overview
The redesigned Golf has gained more cabin space front and rear, yet it hasn't gotten heavier. Volkswagen 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 quiet 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 Golf Wagon and an AWD Golf R arrive soon.
