The Volkswagen Golf has emerged from the long ago days of the Rabbit to become not just a boring tiny hatchback model that lacked performance into a smart and versatile vehicle that offers both two-door and four-door configurations as well as the hatchback and even has a nice amount of performance from the highly engineered power plants found in Volkswagen vehicles. Even with all of these great offerings the Golf maintains its fun to drive personality and attributes that many loyal fans have enjoyed for a very long time.
The Golf is certainly a bit against the grain overall by being a German offering in a class that is dominated by Asian and domestic vehicles for both new and used cars. It also is a hatchback when configurations from other automakers move up to the sedan versions. As a new generation of Golf begins the 2015 model is fully redesigned to be 2.5 inches longer than before and a half-inch wider. Offering the creature comfort and cargo space of larger mid-sized sedans, the Golf comes in weighing eighty pounds less than before and featuring the new turbocharged engine lineups.
