About the 2016 Volkswagen Golf

The 2016 Volkswagen Golf is a German hatchback car that is both dynamic and extremely elegant. Thanks to an impressively quiet cabin, particularly enticing driving dynamics and surprisingly functional dimensions, the Golf easily stands out from a strong competition that includes the Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra, Subaru Impreza, Kia Forte, Mitsubishi Lancer and Mazda3 among others.

The 2016 Volkswagen Golf is available in three different body types and offers a choice of three different powertrains. In addition to the classical 3 and 5-door hatchback version, a more functional variant is also available named the Golf Sportwagon. All three models are fitted with a 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder TSI engine. Those looking for a sportier ride will naturally be more attracted towards the Golf GTI and its 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder TSi engine with 210 horsepower. Sitting alone on top is the Golf R, the most ferocious variant powered by a 2.0-liter TSi engine with 292 horsepower paired with VW’s stunning 4Motion all-wheel drive.
