Like the Rabbit before it and the before that, the current Golf stands apart in the class with an overall of refinement that simply be matched. The near-luxury quality of the the European blend of smooth and driving involvement, and the subdued yet styling make the Golf’s premium worth it. Regarding the current lineup, we strongly the TDI model because of its higher of equipment, strong engine and fuel economy. The base is powerful for the class, but fuel suffers for it.

Enjoyable to drive thanks to its chassis, this Golf offered a variety of engines. The GTI be had with a 2.8-liter six-cylinder VR6 (a compact, narrow-angle V6, which up to 200 hp) or a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The or 1.8T, as it was called, made 150 or 180 hp, depending on the year; the 150-horse was available on the standard four-door in 2000 and 2001.

Known as the the Golf’s diesel offering of a 1.9-liter turbodiesel inline-4, rated for 90 hp and capable of returning 50 mpg on the highway. Golf TDI models from 2004-’06 had an updated of the 1.9-liter that delivered 100 hp. in the model run, the limited-edition R32 was offered, sporting a 3.2-liter VR6, all-wheel drive and body accents; it was sold as a 2004 model.

Most shopping the used Volkswagen market within these however, will probably be at the volume-seller Golfs (the GL and GLS levels), most of which powered by an outdated two-valves-per-cylinder four-cylinder engine. With 115 hp — compared to the 125-150-hp of most peers — and fuel mileage, this plant offered the worst of worlds. Buyers looking at models should note both third- and fourth-generation were sold that Horsepower is the same, but the engines in the new had an upgraded cylinder head for better low-end response.

If possible, we suggest looking for a Golf with either the TDI or the 1.8-liter turbo instead. that Golf TDIs are easy to find on the used car while four-door Golf models may be hard to come by of their short, two-year If you want the turbocharged 1.8-liter you’re more likely to it in the two-door GTI.

TDI models were offered during this generation, as VW had getting its 90-hp turbodiesel to meet U.S. emissions Although fun to drive, this of the Volkswagen Golf was notorious for electrical problems. Notably, Golfs can be hard to find, as a at the assembly plant limited to California and the New England states.

the years 1985-’92, the second of Volkswagen’s Beetle replacement had a version of the previous Golf/Rabbit’s styling. Power ranged a 1.6-liter, 52-hp diesel to a 131-hp 16-valve inline-4 as in the GTI. Most Golfs this era had a 1.8-liter four-cylinder. the 1.8-liter was listed at 85 hp, but it was later for 100.
