While the Volkswagen Golf has clearly evolved over the years, it stays true to its roots.
Available as a 2-door coupe or 4-door sedan, the Volkswagen Golf remains true to its roots. While other vehicles have grown in size, the 2011 Golf is close to the same size it was in the 1970’s and 1980’s. However, it has undergone a redesign that makes it just as sporty, fresh and fun as its competitors.
Buyers can choose from a diesel model, a standard gasoline model or a high performance GTI model when selecting their Volkswagen Golf. All of these models offer drivers a break at the gas pump and top performance. Esquire Magazine recently named the Volkswagen TDI the “Best Diesel Car of 2010.”
The 2011 Volkswagen Golf has plenty of soul with its 2.0 liter, 16-valve, 140 horsepower engine or its 2.5 liter TDI Clean Diesel engine, 20-valve, 170 horsepower gasoline engine. Both engines offer optimal performance with a six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic and Sport Mode. The TDI Clean Diesel Engine also offers a six-speed manual transmission, while the gasoline engine offers the option of a five-speed manual transmission.
The Volkswagen Golf’s hatchback design adds to its soulfulness, remaining true to its original look. It offers drivers spacious cargo room. Mint blue accent lights and solid black components give the interior a high-class feel.
Drivers are treated to a fun, performance-driven experience with the VW Golf. Tight brakes and steering put the driver in total control. An electromechanical steering system reduces the amount of power the driver uses when making tight turns, and the four-corner independent suspension offers a smooth and quiet ride. Edmunds.com calls the Volkswagen Golf “fun to drive.”
The 2011 Volkswagen Golf combines soul, safety and fun to make it a great vehicle. Priced around $17,000, Motor Trend says the Golf “feels like the ritziest hatchback on the market.”
