Alongside the Volkswagen Beetle, the Golf is one of the most popular cars around the world, and it’s just as iconic to the younger demographic as the Beetle was to earlier generations. From 2013 to the beginning of 2020, very few cars offer the classless appeal of the Volkswagen Golf. Not only is the Golf as multi-talented as its predecessors, but it has also improved on them significantly. But why does the Golf retain such a loyal following and enthusiastic fan base? At all of our AutoPark stores, we have an expansive selection of Golf inventory, and we’ll show you why buying a used Volkswagen Golf would be the right move for you.
The Golf offers many features that we have come to love, such as its signature hatchback look, multiple available engine options, the option of either an automatic or manual transmission. No matter which model you opt for, the Golf has always been popular for its incredible performance and handling. It’s proof that the Volkswagen Golf has always been a driver’s car. The Golf has also always been great for fuel economy, getting up to 29 mpg in the city and up to 35 mpg on the highway. For these reasons, and many more, the Golf has always appealed to every type of buyer.
The Golf ranges from low-capacity 1.0, 1.4 and 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engines that punch far above their weight in terms of performance, while still managing to return impressive fuel-efficiency, to the 1.6 and 2.0-litre diesel engines for those who travel on the highway every day. The Golf feels more powerful than most other compacts in its class, which you can credit to the 1.8 turbo’s very accessible torque peak at just 1600 rpm. Turbo lag is minimal: zero to 97 km/h comes up in 7.7 seconds with the automatic transmission and 6.8 seconds with the stick. The Golf delivers a comfortable and compliant ride that smooths over ruts and potholes, while still clinging to the road and imparting an athletic feel along with strong braking.
You’ll love the inside of your Golf, no matter which trim you go for. The dashboard is laid out ideally, with all the major controls right where you need them to be and the driving position is multi-adjustable with great visibility. Our inventory also includes vehicles with a wide range of safety and infotainment features such as: rear camera, heated seats, tilt and telescopic steering, Bluetooth, cruise control, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, alloy wheels, power windows, power locks, heated mirrors, keyless entry, power steering, ABS brakes, and dual airbags. Space in the interior is also a huge plus, with space up front being plentiful, even for tall drivers. There’s also a great amount of leg and head room in the rear. You’ll even find that the trunk space is ample enough for all of your transportation needs, whether its your weekly shop, or a week away.
But don’t just take it from us! Current owners of the Volkswagen Golf have great things to say about their experiences and what they love most about their vehicles. Owner testimonies quote the Golf’s stout construction, hatchback utility, great fuel economy, interior comfort and European styling as some of their favourite features. They have also noted the well-sorted platform that makes the Golf a rewarding car to drive–even while loaded with kids and life’s debris.
