2018 VW Golf Overview

The base engine in the Golf lineup is the automaker’s turbocharged 1.8-liter I-4 that makes 170 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque. The turbo-four is mated to a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic at the hatchback or a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automatic at the Golf SportWagen or Golf Alltrack model. Front-drive is standard on the hatchback and SportWagen, while all-wheel-drive is optional on the SportWagen and standard on the Alltrack.

The sporty Volkswagen Golf GTI is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 making 220 hp and 258 lb-ft and is mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch transmission. The former Performance bundle has become standard and contains VAQ differential and larger brake pads. A DCC adaptive suspension is only offered on the Autobahn trim.

At the peak of the Golf food series is your Golf R with a 292-hp version of the turbocharged 2.0-liter, which is mated to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends power to all four wheels. The DCC adjustable navigation and suspension are optioned together.

Android Auto and Apple CarPlay can be found on even the base model. Other standard features include automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, plus a 6.5-inch touchscreen. Optional equipment includes keyless entry/start, 8.0-inch touchscreen, navigation, LED headlights, and much more.

2018 VW Golf Design

The Golf R, like the GTI, is an understated car. But it’s that this subtlety that makes the one-piece model so visually appealing. It doesn’t require a large, shouty wing or striking red accents — it is stable in its level of functionality without resorting to such crude automotive threat gestures. Its barely angrier fascia, 19-inch wheels, and quad exhaust tips are compelling enough. Contrary to more over-the-top offerings we are looking at you, Civic Type R), the Golf R is efreshingly subtle, {and to most onlookers, entirely inoffensive.


The Golf’s cabin is simple, trendy, and covered in high quality materials. Black leather and soft-touch black plastics cover virtually every surface within hands reach, although there is conservative use of piano black plastic on the infotainment display and brushed aluminum on the gear lever. However, if we had to dock the Golf R cabin anywhere, it’d be for its dull design. The new Jetta has the same issue — the materials are good and the design is clean, but it all feels a little too conservative and business-like.

2018 VW Golf Safety

The Golf SE comes with blind spot warning, back cross-traffic attentive, and front assist with pedestrian detection, while the SEL adds adaptive cruise control. Lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, parking sensors, and park assist are a part of a bundle.
