About Volkswagen Golf
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please be aware that this vehicle's diesel engine is involved in a Notice of Violation of the Clean Air Act issued by the EPA to Volkswagen for producing and selling 4-cylinder diesel cars that include a software device that circumvents EPA emissions standards for certain air pollutants. The EPA and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) determined that these diesel cars emit up to 40 times more pollution than emission standards allow. Recalls, investigations and litigation are currently ongoing.
The 2016 Volkswagen Golf is no longer just a single model – it’s become an entire model line unto itself. Beyond the well-established 2-door and 4-door Golf hatchbacks, the Golf family also includes the roomy Golf SportWagen, an electric eGolf and the performance-oriented GTI and Golf R. Redesigned last year, the Golf is the largest it has ever been, providing better rear-seat and cargo space and a smoother ride. What hasn’t change for VW’s entry-level car is its affordable base price, a choice between gasoline and diesel engines and a long list of standard and available features. Not a VW fan? The Mazda3 has less horsepower but better fuel economy, while the Hyundai Elantra GT offers a better warranty and more standard features.
