2014 Volkswagen Golf

With a new 7th generation Golf just around the corner in about a year's time after a dazzling LA Auto Show Debut, one might wonder if there is still sales life left in the current generation Golf hatchback be it in basic form or as a TDI model with Volkswagen's highly regarded and amazingly efficient 2.0 liter turbodiesel engine under the hood. Most Americans prefer sedans with trunks so the Volkswagen Jetta which used to be entirely Golf based has often times hogged all of the attention. That is, until some things changed.

When they last redesigned the Jetta which is built in Puebla, Mexico the powers that be at Volkswagen decided it would attract a wider slice of the compact sedan segment by lowering the cost which meant using much cheaper materials in the interior and ditching the advanced independent rear suspension used in the Golf for a simpler, cheaper and less effective torsion beam rear axle. The result is a Jetta that doesn't drive or handle quite as well as a Golf nor does it have an interior ambience anywhere near on par with this current compact hatchback class leader.

So while some may still insist they would rather own a car with a trunk, Golf buyers know that not only are they buying a superior automobile engineered to be truly world class but that having that extra door in the back really turns this vehicle into a utilitarian family runabout. Think of it as a compact crossover that's lower to the ground, actually fun to drive and incredibly fuel efficient and you have some idea of what the 2014 Volkswagen Golf is like. They have sold 30 million Golfs over the years so something has to be right with the formula.

2013 Volkswagen Golf

With a new 7th generation Golf just around the corner in about a year's time, one might wonder if there is still sales life left in the current generation Golf hatchback be it in basic form or as a TDI model with Volkswagen's highly regarded and amazingly efficient 2.0 liter turbodiesel engine under the hood. Most Americans prefer sedans with trunks so the Volkswagen Jetta which used to be entirely Golf based has often times hogged all of the attention. That is, until some things changed.

When they last redesigned the Jetta which is built in Puebla, Mexico the powers that be at Volkswagen decided it would attract a wider slice of the compact sedan segment by lowering the cost which meant using much cheaper materials in the interior and ditching the advanced independent rear suspension used in the Golf for a simpler, cheaper and less effective torsion beam rear axle. The result is a Jetta that doesn't drive or handle quite as well as a Golf nor does it have an interior ambience anywhere near on par with this current compact hatchback class leader.

So while some may still insist they would rather own a car with a trunk, Golf buyers know that not only are they buying a superior automobile engineered to be truly world class but that having that extra door in the back really turns this vehicle into a utilitarian family runabout. Think of it as a compact crossover that's lower to the ground, actually fun to drive and incredibly fuel efficient and you have some idea of what the 2013 Volkswagen Golf is like.
