2018 Golf

2018 Volkswagen Golf

There are two things valued in an employee above most other attributes; quality work and versatility. Such traits are also valued in cars, and no car epitomizes quality and versatility more than the Volkswagen Golf. From the sharp-looking and sharply-priced Golf S and Wolfsburg Edition; through to the quintessential hot hatch, the Golf GTI; the future-driven e-Golf; to the range-topping Golf R; there is a Golf model to perfectly suit your lifestyle and fit your needs like only a Volkswagen product can.

Volkswagen has an unmatched focus on safety, and you need only look at the long list of acronyms to realize this; ABS, ASR, ESC, EBD and EBA, coupled with ALR, PODS, ICRS and TPMS. By the time you've gotten through that, you might need a sit down and a little R'n'R. That all said the safety aspect is taken very seriously, and it is nice to know that, should the worst happen, the Golf has your back.

Life is too short to not be having fun, and so it goes that living with the Golf is a direct pass to driving nirvana. Sharp dynamics are coupled with the sharper pricing, and it means every drive has the chance to be memorable. Even the $19,895 MSRP Golf S packs a 170HP, 199lb-ft 1.8L turbocharged engine mated to a smooth-shifting 5sp manual or a snappy modern 6sp automatic, ensuring brisk progress through town as you get out to the suburbs and onto the open road. It'll be comfortable too, when you consider the power-adjustable front seats, leather multi-function steering wheel, and eight-speaker stereo with a 6.5-inch touchscreen controlling the Bluetooth, SiriusXM satellite radio and VW's Car-Net App Connect. Jump into a Wolfsburg Edition and be welcomed by the keyless entry before seeing the panorama glass roof above, sitting on heated V-Tex leatherette seats, taking advantage of the keyless push-button start and ably assisted by the Blind Spot Monitor and Front Assist.

The famed GTI badge is a Golf institution; Volkswagen created the hot hatch with the original Golf GTI, and today the envelope of performance is pushed to even greater heights. A 220HP, 258lb-ft 2.0L turbocharged engine sends power via a 6sp manual or dual-clutch DSG, while the Macpherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension maintain composure, precision and poise on every road you care to point the GTI's nose at. Opt for the GTI SE model and you'll get a panoramic sunroof, bigger 8.0-inch touchscreen and Fender premium audio, along with upgraded brakes and a limited-slip differential to better take advantage of that effortless performance. The GTI Autobahn is the ultimate machine outside the city limits, with its adaptive dampers giving a cosseting ride when you are looking for comfort, and hunkered-down control when carving up those twisties. Lastly, for the epitome of performance, so certainly not least, Volkswagen has created the Golf R to crush any misconceptions you might have had about how good a performance hatchback could be. With all-wheel-drive, 292HP and 280lb-ft of torque, tiny gaps in traffic grow and distances between hairpins shrink as the Golf R tears its way up the road. That monumental thrust is accompanied by advanced technology like Volkswagen's Digital Cockpit, LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, Blind Spot Monitor and Lane Departure Warning, again another nod to the fact a performance car can still be versatile enough to use easily day in, day out.

The Volkswagen Golf may be just another hatch, but its distinctive Teutonic flavor with unparalleled build quality and safety keep it at the front of the chasing pack. Versatility is still a welcome quality, it seems.
