The New Volkswagen Golf
VW simplified things with the new Golf and gave them all the excellent 1.8-liter turbo four-cylinder engine with 200hp. Opt for the Golf TDI to get an ultra-efficient 2.0-liter turbo-diesel I4. A 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission are offered, with TDI models getting a dual-clutch automatic. Buyers have their choice of three-door or five-door hatchback body styles, both with the expected rear hatch that makes these cars so versatile. The Golf TDI is EPA-rated at 36 mpg in combined city/highway driving with both the manual or dual-clutch auto drivetrain, while the 1.8T rates 30 mpg with the manual, or 29 mpg with the auto.
