I’m a guy. I loved the VW Rabbit as I was up and I bought a Honda Civic as soon as I was able. Now I drive a Mini Cooper.

I love the and utility of these cars. And to top it I just like the way they

Such is the market for the 2010 Golf. And unlike most where I pursue the sportiest, powerful versions of the car, I was at testing the base model of the Golf. This model $17,600 with a 2.5L motor mated to a 5-speed That in itself is quite a since it is a big motor for a base and not the most frugal at 22/30 mpg and highway.

But the 170 hp and 177 ft/lbs torque should be


Ahhh, performance for a car is usually a very short But this is where the 2010 shines. The chassis is solid and the is taut and responsive. Couple with a capable base engine and this car is guaranteed to put a on your face. The highlight is the engine that puts out 177 of torque.

It pulls this car town, around turns and on the Get it on a twisty mountain road and it responds.

Oftentimes you have to reminding yourself that is a base model more of a car. No smiling allowed! that’s not how VW likes to treat numerous, perhaps first-time VW customers.

They delivered a car that is fun to as it accelerates and handles like a car. 0-60 acceleration of 8.0 is very respectable for a car in this And since this engine has a lot of and grunt, it feels faster that.

The chassis feels it can handle more than the economy-tuned powerplant can churn out it can. Unlike other cars, the Golf is a platform needs to be able to handle the and torque of a diesel version. In the GTI and the R32 monster powerplants and suspensions are for this chassis.

And as you drive this car and carve turns, it feels confident it can handle more power and speed.

Construction-wise, this car more like a BMW 3-series it does a Toyota Yaris. The feels overbuilt and solid. repeat our theory that chassis is built for so much On the higher-end models that are to come, it will probably $40,000.

So the build of this car much better than the competition.

This is the best VW Golf ever. The exterior and styling have been redesigned as well. The body is (if you’re a hatchback person).

The and lines are just right and all the trim has been blackened The rear angled tail have been simplified and to improve the rear of the car significantly. The and contouring of the body panels are but effective.

And the front of the car is attractive and neutral the ‘smiling’ Mazda 3. This is the best looking Golf in an lineage.

The beveled body and recessed cavities all work to form a clean and unified The black body trim is and does not call attention to And the rear and front lights really well with car.

How does a $17,600 hatchback deliver good It is more expensive than the as the Honda Fit starts out at $14,900 and the the Yaris and Nissan Versa are cheaper.

But this starts out at a good and ends at a good price the need for all kinds of options and to make it a decent daily And most important, it is a solid and fun to drive car. So it gets our recommendation for delivering excellent value for the money.
