Beats The Competition
Potent turbo power.
Driving agility and refinement.
Sensational value via the Wolfsburg Edition.
Our Take
Even a base Golf TSI, with its turbo 1.8-liter engine offers an incredibly enjoyable driving experience.
For the money, it's tough to beat VW's new pricing packages for the Golf.
Appearance-wise, the Golf is still the same as it ever was, which wins and loses it points depending upon the buyer.
