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. 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.
New Features and Revisions
For 2017, VW has dropped all 2-door models, and reduces the number of trims on the TSI to just two: S and Wolfsburg. There’s a new Sport trim for the GTI, while the Autobahn gains adaptive cruise control, autonomous braking and an available upgraded Driver Assistance Package.
