2018 Volkswagen Golf
Why Buy the VW Golf?
According to Forbes, the Volkswagen Golf is currently number 10 on the list of the biggest-selling cars of all time, and that many buyers can’t be wrong, can they? It’s the car that brought the world the “hot hatch” in the form of the Golf GTI in the 1980s, and it’s as popular today as it’s ever been.
Don’t think the Golf is some relic from the past that’s popular on the strength of its name, though, because that’s most definitely not the case. VW has recently given the Golf some big technology updates to keep it as safe and current as anything in its class, and there are so many versions of the Golf today that there really is one for just about everyone. Whether you’re looking for a family runaround, a daily commuter, an exhilarating driver’s car or just about anything else, you’ll find what you’re looking for somewhere in the current Golf lineup.
Which Volkswagen Golf is Best?
It might sound hard to believe, but there really is no such thing as a bad Golf. The best one, then, is the one that’s best for you. But the really great thing about the current 2018 Golf range is that no matter which one you go for, they’re all highly practical and work superbly as a daily driver.
Is the VW Golf AWD?
In its more affordable versions the Golf isn’t usually all-wheel drive, but it’s something you can definitely have if you’d like it. If you’re looking for a vehicle that can hold its own in rough weather, an all-wheel drive equipped Golf is a good choice.
Are Volkswagen Golfs Reliable?
When a manufacturer produces and sells as many units of a car as VW does with the Golf, it’s unlikely that the word wouldn’t get out about an unreliable Golf. The 2017 Golf got a 2.5 out of 5 rating from J.D. Power and Associates Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS), which puts it just a little below the “about average” rating. However, VW as a whole has a reputation for producing reliable, dependable and durable vehicles and the Golf is certainly no exception.
