The Golf is a favorite with drivers not only because it offers practical features, but also manages to be a fun drive. A 1.8-liter turbocharged engine delivering up 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Combine this with strong breaks and tight steering for the perfect combination of practical and fun.
There can be little doubt one of the main reasons behind purchasing a hatchback is the improved cargo space. Seats fold down flat for complete use of the available interior space, bringing the maximum cargo space to 52.7 cubic feet. With the seats upright, it still has a total of 22.8 cubic feet to work with.
A low starting price is important, but so is having all the conveniences modern vehicles can offer. The Golf offers a nice balance with standard features including a rearview camera, heated side mirrors, a 6.5-inch color touchscreen with App-Connect features and a multi-function steering wheel.
Though a complete redesign was offered for the previous model year, the 2016 Volkswagen Golf has earned some new features that have made it even more appealing.

This year Volkswagen has released the all-new MIB II infotainment system, which is now available Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect. This feature include integration of Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink to provide some of the best smartphone connectivity on the market.
