Which Volkswagen Golf is the Best?

July 18th, 2017 by


Faced with such an exciting range of new Volkswagen Golf models, we know it might be hard to choose which one to drive home to Salem or Haverhill. If you find yourself asking “which Volkswagen Golf is the best,” we’re here to help, breaking down the differences between the Golf models so you can find the VW that fits your needs and style. Read on for the details, and then pay us a visit to test drive one of these new VW hatchbacks.

Golf SportWagen and Golf AllTrack

Both of these Golf models feature a wagon design, meaning that you’ll get a different body and different interior specs than in the others. The Golf SportWagen, for example, will give you a seating capacity of five, while also providing 94.3 cubic feet of passenger volume and as much as 66.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down.

Drivers looking for a sportier ride don’t need to stray from the Golf, thanks to the Golf AllTrack. With available Marrakesh Brown leatherette and a panoramic sunroof, the Golf AllTrack blends practicality and class.

Golf Hatchback

The standard Golf sets the tone for all the models that bear its name, offering plenty of comfort in its spacious cabin and quickly switching from five-passenger mode to cargo mode with an available 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space (just fold those rear seats down). While its performance-tuned siblings might get quite a bit of engine attention, this Golf is no slouch – you can enjoy the potent 1.8L turbocharged four-cylinder rated at 170 hp. Practical and fun, this Volkswagen is also loaded with some of the latest tech features.

Golf GTI and Golf R

Finally, the last two Golf models embrace the performance side of Volkswagen. The Golf GTI sports a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers up to 210 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque when running on premium fuel. The Golf R elevates things to another level entirely, however.

Under the hood of the Golf R is a specially-tuned 2.0L TSI engine that boasts 292 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque with premium fuel; paired to the 4MOTION all-wheel drive system and 6-speed DSG automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport mode, this model offers drivers a new understanding of power and control.
