Voted as Motor Trend magazine’s 2015 Car of the Year, the 2016 Volkswagen Golf, now in its seventh generation and 41st anniversary, comes back with even more new models and features. There is a reason why the Golf is Volkswagen’s best seller around the world. You get a German engineered and very practical car that comes with a standard direct injected 1.8T turbocharged engine that was included by the prestigious auto trade journal Ward’s Auto World in their 2015’s 10 Best Engines list for the second year in a row.
You can package the Golf for basic but efficient economical commutes with the standard 1.8T gasoline engine. Diesel aficionados have the 2016 Golf TDI; or the new SportWagen TDI Clean Diesel which has an excellent mpg rating of 31 city and 43 highway. Performance oriented drivers can opt for the Golf GTI; or go all out with the potent all wheel drive 2016 Golf-R with the 292 horsepower turbocharged 2 liter engine.
Available in various trim levels, these are a few of what the optional TSI trim will give you: The convenience of Cruise Control. Power Windows with 1 touch up and 1 touch down feature. Comfort with the Climatic manual single zone climate control. Almost unlimited adjustments with the 6 way adjustable front seats and adjustable front center armrest with storage pocket. Storage almost everywhere – under the driver’s seats and front seatbacks included. With the rear seats folded, you get a total of a huge 52.7 ft of cargo space. No small car in this segment comes close to this.
Bluetooth comes standard with a touchscreen sound system and CD player. Also available with VW Car-Net and App-Connect to connect seamlessly with your smartphone.
The 2016 Volkswagen Golf will protect you and your family. Technology comes to the fore here with an Anti Lock Braking System, Anti Slip Regulation, Hydraulic Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Control with Electronic Differential Lock, and a Brake Override System.
