One of the benefits of driving a compact car is the impressive fuel-economy numbers, while the hatchback design gives plenty of space. The Volkswagen Golf has earned an EPA-estimated 25 city and 37 highway mpg rating. A stylish model that doesn’t hurt at the pump? It isn’t too good to be true.
Standard features in the Volkswagen Golf include heated side mirrors, the MIB II infotainment system, a rearview camera, VW Car-Net features, and a multi-function steering wheel. Four-door options also come standard with the VW App-Connect functions, which bring better smartphone integration.
What do shoppers like most about the VW Golf? It could be the fact that this compact model ends up seeming surprisingly roomy. Passenger volume comes out to be 93.5 cubic feet, while the cargo space is an impressive 22.8 cubic feet with the rear seats upright and 51.2 cubic feet with the rear seats folded.
A vehicle can hardly be fun to drive if it doesn’t have a potent powertrain. The 2016 Volkswagen Golf provides the right balance of power and fuel economy with its 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine which delivers 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. A manual transmission comes standard, but the available automatic is a favorite option for many drivers as it offers silky smooth gear shifts and Tiptronic and Sport modes.
This model year the two-door options will primarily be available by order only, with the four-door options coming with better standard features. There are a total of five trim options between the two body styles, presenting a wide range of options. The 2016 Volkswagen Golf is available now at Trend Motors, serving Rockaway, Randolph, Newark, Bridgewater and Wayne, NJ.
