2021 Volkswagen Golf Review

Overview
The first Volkswagen Golf got to America in 1974 and immediately started changing the world. Today’s Golf is even more fun to drive and can carry even more of your stuff—using less gas. From keyless entry to driver-assistance technology the well-equipped Golf TSI comes with everything you need. There’s 93.5 cubic feet of passenger volume inside. Or fold down the 60/40-split rear seatback and you can fit over 50 cubic feet of cargo. And a peppy turbocharged engine means you can carry everything for Dup to 39 miles on a single gallon of gas. Bluetooth technology with audio streaming adds voice control and Volkswagen App-Connect brings select smartphone apps to a touchscreen display—it’s compatible with Apple CarPlay Android Auto and MirrorLink. And best of all every Golf comes with standard driver-assistance technologies like Autonomous Emergency Braking and Rear Traffic Aler5. Choose from a variety of colors options and Genuine Volkswagen Accessories and build a Golf that’s all yours. The Volkswagen Golf. It’s an urban legend.
Technology
The Volkswagen Golf puts high technology well within your reach. Volkswagen App-Connect uses Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability to bring your smartphone apps to a touchscreen display and Volkswagen Car-Net turns your smartphone into a remote control for your Golf. If you ever noticed it was raining and wondered if you rolled up your car windows or if you ever boarded a plane and remembered you forgot to lock your car doors well now you can fix it with your smartphone. The Volkswagen Golf. Taking technology to town.
Safety
How did the Volkswagen Golf earn a Five-Star Overall Safety Rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration? Well start with six airbags front and rear crumple zones and a rigid safety cage. Add Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking so you can avoid collisions in the first place. Then there’s the Blind Spot Monitor that helps you change lanes more safely. And the first time Rear Traffic Alert saves you from getting hit you’ll never want to back out of a driveway or parking spot without it again. The Volkswagen Golf. Peace of mind comes standard.
Performance
There’s never a dull moment in your Volkswagen Golf. When it’s time to hit the highway the Golf’s turbocharged 1.4-liter engine delivers 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. And up to 39 miles per gallon. This excellent balance of power and efficiency comes with your choice of a six-speed manual or an available eight-speed Tiptronic transmission. And electric power-assist rack-and-pinion steering means a nimble ride. The Volkswagen Golf. It’s fast. It’s fun. It’s a machine designed for today’s urban explorer.
