Review of the 2005 Volkswagen Golf

  • Though pricier than the average economy car, the 2005 Volkswagen Golf offers far more amenities, refined driving dynamics and a very fuel-efficient diesel option, all of which make it an attractive hatchback.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Long list of standard features, high-quality cabin materials, utility of hatchback design, fuel-efficient diesel engine, fun to drive.

  • Cons

    More expensive than its peers, mediocre performance of base four-cylinder, some controls difficult to use.

  • What's New for 2005

    With an all-new Golf on the way next year, there are no major changes for the current model.
