The 2019 Volkswagen Golf is a practical hatchback that's suited best for the daily commuter. This reliable five-door is offered in two easy-to-configure trim levels, powered by a fuel-efficient 1.4-liter turbocharged engine, and packed with driver-assisted safety features. The Golf continues to be a value-driven option for consumers in search of a fun-to-drive car that returns exception fuel economy and has plenty of storage space.
What's New for 2019
The 2019 Volkswagen Golf arrives at dealerships with a new power option. A 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine has replaced an outdated 1.8-liter engine. The new powerplant can be paired to a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. The S trim receives upgraded driver-assisted safety systems, while the SE gains a Driver Assistance Package.
Choosing Your Volkswagen Golf
The 2019 Volkswagen Golf is available in two trims including the base S and range-topping SE. Each Golf receives power from a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Consumers can opt for the standard six-speed manual transmission or upgrade to an eight-speed automatic transmission for an additional $1,100. The Golf returns an EPA-estimated 29 miles per gallon in the city, 37 mpg on the highway, and 32 combined with either transmission.
Front-wheel drive is the only option, however, each Golf receives an automatic emergency braking system which shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and activates the hazard lights when the vehicle experiences an accident.
If you’re looking for a fuel-efficient daily commuter, the 2019 Volkswagen Golf is worth a detailed look. The Golf is a great option for singles, smaller families, and those living in moderate-weather climates. The lack of all-wheel drive should be carefully considered for those in colder climates. For the money, the SE offers consumers the best bang for the buck.
