The Volkswagen Golf is the first name in fun-to-drive, and if you’ve had your eye on a Golf you’ll be happy to know that you’ve got no shortage of choice. From the well-balanced Golf to the high-performance Golf R to the exceptionally efficient e-Golf, VW lets you have your daily drive just the way you like it.
2018 Volkswagen Golf
If you are looking for a versatile new vehicle with lots of premium touches, the 2018 Volkswagen Golf delivers in droves. Its squared-off hatchback design gives you lots of cargo space, while the cabin is designed with premium materials for an upscale feel. Its turbocharged 1.8-liter engine comes with 170 horsepower and still delivers an EPA-estimated 34 mpg on the highway, making it a well-rounded choice for drivers who want performance and practicality.*
If you like the versatility of a crossover but want something a bit sleeker, the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack is worth a good look. Like the SportWagen, it has a larger cargo area, but it adds even more versatility with standard all-wheel drive. This makes it a great choice if you live in a cold weather area or like having adventurous weekends that go off the beaten path.
If you want a car with a greener footprint than most, consider the Volkswagen e-Golf. It is equipped with an electric powertrain that offers am EPA-estimated driving range of 125 miles.* It also gives you the benefit of having an electric car without the usual “electric car” styling. Inside, the e-Golf comes well-equipped with features like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, an 8-inch touch screen, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio.
With performance as its main objective, the 2018 Golf GTI will keep you smiling mile after mile. All GTI models are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine rated at an impressive 220 horsepower. You can choose between a six-speed manual or a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Even with all of its driving thrills, the GTI still comes with a spacious, premium interior.
The 2018 Volkswagen Golf R comes with a few updates including a new seven-speed automatic transmission, adaptive LED headlights, and an 8-in touch-screen display. This is the fastest and most impressive model in the Golf lineup, equipped with a powerful 292-horsepower engine and improved handling dynamics. Meanwhile, you still get all the creature comforts you want like Bluetooth® and a large touch screen.
The 2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen is a great alternative to a crossover, offering the stylish design of the Golf hatchback with greater cargo space. With an extra foot of space behind the rear seats, the SportWagen offers as much as 66.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats folded flat, compared to just 53.7 cubic feet from the standard Golf. This makes the Golf SportWagen a great choice for families on the grow; yet, as the SportWagen name implies, it’s still a ton of fun to drive.
From top to bottom, the Golf family offers one of the most versatile lineups in the industry. To experience the Volkswagen Golf up close, stop into Gossett Volkswagen of Germantown.
