Right from the first door thunk, the Volkswagen Golf exudes a quality feel not found in your average econobox. The Golf has long been a cut above other small cars, being more fun to drive and finished like a more expensive German sedan.
Our last tested Golf had a 170-hp, 1.8-liter four-cylinder turbo -- a punchy powertrain that delivered 28 mpg overall. As off 2019, the 1.8 was replaced by a 147-hp 1.4-liter turbo, mated to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. We tested the 1.4 and eight-speed auto in the current Jetta, which went from zero to 60 mph in nine seconds, and returned an excellent at 34 mpg overall.
