A little expensive but worth it.

2011 Volkswagen Golf TDI 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6M)


For those wanting a small car without the typical small car cheapness, this is one of the best cars out there! Ever notice how most large cars get the decent materials, features, etc but small ones just get an extra helping of cheap? Not here! You get all the material quality, features, and overall feel of large cars with this one. It also drives like a much more substantial car as well. The 6spd MT doesnt seem to be near as touchy as people let on with the 2010's, and also adds hill holder. The diesel is great feeling like a strong V6 while getting 40mpg+. In fact combined MPG is higher then the EPA rated 42hwy. Costs more then other similar cars, but well worth it.

Favorite Features

The diesel! I dont think there is a better combination of power, fun to drive, and MPG out there. Most seem to do only 1 of those aspects well instead of all. The numerous 'hidden' features typical of VW's and the ability to really customize thier operation.

Suggested Improvements

Add parking lights (city lights as they call them) on north american cars. Headlights are either on or off on ours. The base RCD510 radio seems to be watered down and missing features/settings that other markets have for the same radio.
