The 2017 Volkswagen Golf makes it possible to be practical and posh at the same time. As an upscale model, the Golf features handsome black leatherette seating surfaces and plenty of long-haul support. Settle into either row of seating and you’ll enjoy all the head- and legroom you could want. As a versatile hatchback, the Golf treats you to 22.8 cubic feet of cargo space – more than enough room for major shopping hauls and hobbyist gear, like musical instruments or the makings of your next homemade furniture set. If you need even greater space, flip down the 60/40-split folding rear seats to create up to 52.7 cubes for your hauling needs. There’s even a center pass-through, so you can transport longer items without cutting down on rear-seat passenger space.
Tech supplies are part of what makes the 2017 Volkswagen Golf an urban legend. The Golf’s central touchscreen makes it easy to find the feature you seek, thanks to its responsive controls and intuitive menus. All Golf models come with the cutting-edge Car-Net App-Connect system, which includes Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto technology. Simply connect your smartphone to the system, and compatible apps are displayed on the central touchscreen. You’ll never need to look down at your smartphone – and away from traffic – again. Voice controls stretch connectivity even further, giving you the ability to send text messages with both hands on the wheel.
The VW Golf has been one of Car and Driver’s 10 Best models for 10 years running – and, once you get behind the wheel, is easy to see why. This sporty hatchback doesn’t just double down on comfort and technology – it zips around town with zeal. You’ll relish the time you spend out on the open road, thanks to the Golf’s responsive automatic transmission and punchy engine performance. It’s also big on comfort, with a suspension designed to balance a sporting ride with passenger-friendly smoothness. You’ll ease over any bumps in the road in maximum comfort.
Boost your confidence behind the wheel with the Golf’s safety gear. The new Car-Net telematics system includes everything from remote vehicle access – like locking and unlocking features – to automatic crash notification. The system even provides roadside assistance, so you don’t have to worry about ending up stranded on the side of a busy highway. Basically, it’s ready for anything. And that’s not all. In government crash tests, the Golf received a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. Similarly, the Golf earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s top score of “Good” in every single crash test.
The 2017 Volkswagen Golf is uniquely suited to drivers who want a hot-hatch performance to go along with a luxurious cabin. The Golf’s speedy performance and responsive handling can’t help but appeal to drivers who want to take their ride to the next level. If that’s you, you’ll find everything you want in the 2017 Volkswagen Golf.
