2014 Volkswagen Golf

The three-door hatchback has been phased out, leaving the five-door to soldier on by itself for the sixth-gen Golf s last model year on the market.

The interior design of the sixth-gen Golf features the steering wheel, audio controls and climate control found in the CC and a new touch screen-based navigation unit. Brushed metallic trim inserts are standard on the dash and in the door panels of all Golf models, and accent the Golf s instrument panel and center console.

When needing to haul your gear, simply flip forward the 60/40 split-folding rear seat (it comes with a pass-through on TDI models) and the Golf can pack 46 cubic feet of luggage. Keep the rear seats in place and there s still space for 15.2 cubic feet of cargo.

Under the Hood

Engine choices include the 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that is also shared with the Jetta and Beetle, as well as the 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel that is currently in the Jetta and Jetta Sportwagen. The five-cylinder powerplant is good for 170 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque while the diesel makes only 140 horsepower but a stout 236 lb-ft of torque.

Fuel economy for the five-cylinder ranges from 23 city, 33 highway with a five-speed manual transmission (available only on the three-door) to 24 city, 31 highway mpg when a six-speed automatic is swapped for the manual. Step up to the diesel, known as the TDI, and fuel economy jumps to 30 city, 42 highway with either the standard six-speed manual or optional six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic.

Trim Level Breakdown

The Golf is available in a total of six different trim levels — three for the 2.5-liter gas engine, and three for the 2.0-liter TDI turbodiesel.

The gas trims start with the 2.5-liter, which includes power locks and windows, air conditioning, cruise control, an eight-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo system, a cooling glovebox, power adjustable and heated mirrors.

The 2.5-liter with Convenience brings a leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift knob and brake handle, heated front seats, heated washer nozzles and Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming.

The top-spec 2.5-liter with Convenience and Sunroof lives up to its name by adding a sunroof in addition to a premium touchscreen-activated sound system with HD radio, a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, a media device interface with an iPod cable and SiriusXM radio.

At the bottom of the diesel range there’s the TDI, which includes all of the 2.5-liter’s features in addition to a lowered sport suspension, a premium touchscreen-activated sound system with HD radio, heated front seats, heated washer nozzles, 17-inch Salamanca alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel and halogen foglights.

The next rung up the latter, the TDI with Sunroof and Navigation, includes precisely what you’d expect — sunroof and a touchscreen-activated navigation system.

Finally, the TDI with Technology Package adds a Dynaudio sound system, keyless access with push-button start, bi-xenon headlights with LED running lights and an adaptive front-lighting system.

Occupant Safety

All Golf models come standard with dual front, side and side-curtain airbags in addition to traction and stability control systems and electronic brake-force distribution.
