Volkswagen Golf 2018 Overview
The base engine in the Golf lineup is the automaker’s turbocharged 1.8-liter I-4 which produces 170 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque. The turbo-four is mated to a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic at the hatchback or a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automatic at the Golf SportWagen or Golf Alltrack model. Front-drive is regular on the hatchback and SportWagen, while all-wheel-drive is discretionary to the SportWagen and regular on the Alltrack.
The sporty Volkswagen Golf GTI is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 making 220 hp and 258 lb-ft and is mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch transmission. The former Performance package is now standard and includes VAQ differential and bigger brake pads. A DCC adjustable suspension is only offered on the Autobahn trim.
At the very top of this Golf food series is your Golf R with a 292-hp version of the turbocharged 2.0-liter, which is mated to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which sends power to all four wheels. The DCC adjustable navigation and suspension are optioned together.
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay can be found on even the base model. Other regular features include automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen. Optional equipment includes keyless entry/start, 8.0-inch touchscreen, navigation, LED headlights, and more.
Volkswagen Golf 2018 Design
The Golf R, such as the GTI, is an understated car. Nonetheless, it’s this subtlety which makes the top-end R model so visually appealing. It doesn’t require a big, shouty wing or striking red accents — it is stable in its level of performance without resorting to such crude automotive hazard gestures. Its hardly angrier fascia, 19-inch wheels, and quad exhaust tips are persuasive enough. Contrary to more over-the-top offerings (we’re looking at you, Civic Type R), the Golf R is and also to many onlookers, entirely inoffensive.
The Golf’s cottage is easy, trendy, and covered in high-quality substances. Black leather and soft-touch black plastics protect almost every surface in hands reach, although there is conservative use of piano black plastic on the infotainment screen and brushed aluminum on the gear lever. But if we needed to dock the Golf R cottage anywhere, it’d be for its dull design. The new Jetta has exactly the same problem — the substances are good and the layout is clean, but it all feels just a bit overly conservative and business-like.
Volkswagen Golf 2018 Safety
The Golf SE comes with blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and front aid with pedestrian detection, while the SEL adds adaptive cruise control. Lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, parking sensors, and park assist are part of a package.
