Let's see how the 2015 Volkswagen Golf compares to the Ford Fiesta.
Volkswagen Golf Powertrain versus Ford Fiesta Powertrain
The Volkswagen Golf has been popular amongst drivers for decades, and it's easy to see why. The 2015 Golf is powered by a choice of two engines -- a 1.8L turbocharged 4-cylinder with 170hp or a 2.0-liter TDI 4-cylinder Clean Diesel with 150hp. Base models come with a standard 6-speed manual standard and a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport mode is an option on upper models. By contrast, the Ford Fiesta has a choice of 3 engines --- a 1.6L 16-valve Inline-4 with only 120hp, an optional 1.0L EcoBoost Inline-3, or a 1.6L turbocharged EcoBoost Inline-4. Only a 5-speed manual is standard, with a 6-speed automatic optional. If you're looking for power, the 2015 Golf delivers on all fronts.
Golf Fuel Economy Compared to Fiesta Fuel Economy
Despite having more available engines, the 2015 Volkswagen Golf outshines the Ford Fiesta when it comes to fuel efficiency. Even with the Golf's more powerful engine, it gets amazing fuel economy with an estimated 25 city/37 highway. And the Diesel engine will produce an amazing 30/45 mpg. Even with its best engine (the 1.0L manual EcoBoost package), the Fiesta only manages 30/43 mpg.
The 2015 Volkswagen Golf is available in 6 trims -- and each one is packed with standard features. The base S models comes with 15" steel wheels, V-Tex leatherette power seats, Bluetooth, a multi-function (audio, phone and cruise control) steering wheel and a touchscreen sound system with IPod integration and Sirius. The Fiesta comes with standard 15-inch wheels but lacks interior standard features such as satellite radio, an audio display screen, leatherette seats and a steering wheel with controls.
