Changes to the 2014 Volkswagen Golf and GTI are limited to two special-edition GTI trims: Wolfsburg and Driver’s Edition. The 2-door Golf/GTI body is dropped taking with it the option of a manual transmission on the base 2.5. The Golf R is also no more.

No significant changes to the base car, but option packages have been simplified. Those Golfs equipped with the 2.5-liter 5-cylinder gasoline powertrain are available in Golf, Golf with Convenience, and Golf with Convenience and Sunroof guises. Those consumers opting for the 2.0-liter Clean Diesel can spec their Golfs as Golf TDI, Golf TDI with Sunroof and Navigation, and Golf TDI with Tech Package. Making any of these choices continues to provide you with a high level – for the segment – of standard equipment. Celebrating 35 years as the world's best "hot hatch," VW's GTI receives a new variant - GTI with Convenience and Sunroof - which groups together some of the most popular stand-alone options. And for those with a penchant for spending more to get more, the Golf R, with 256 horsepower, 4Motion all-wheel drive and a $35,000 MSRP should more than satisfy.

2010 Volkswagen Golf What's new for 2010? 
2010 Volkswagen Golf

For 2010, Volkswagen sheds the Rabbit nomenclature and changes it back to the Golf - hopefully, for good this time. The re-re-re-named hatchback touts a new design language - inside and out - as well as an optional TDI engine, a step in a greener direction. Overall, the 2010 Volkswagen Golf is better than ever.

About Volkswagen Golf

Once a simple, unassuming hatchback, the 2017 Volkswagen Golf line has grown to include an all-electric e-Golf, two high-performance trims (GTI and R) and a wagon (reviewed separately). Although the fuel-economy champ TDI diesel is no longer offered, the Golf TSI’s standard 1.8-liter turbocharged gasoline engine returns highway fuel economy in the 35-mpg range and is a rather peppy performer. While competitors like the Honda Civic, Chevrolet Cruze and Hyundai Elantra have caught up to the Golf in terms of performance and comfort, the 2017 VW Golf still displays a more upscale feel. Its German heritage delivers excellent driving characteristics that still seem to elude Hyundai and Honda, although the Mazda3 trumps the Golf TSI in both handling and fuel economy.
