2012 Volkswagen Golf 2.0L TDI 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 6AM)

Review

Just purchased 4 door Golf TDI, 750 miles driven. Avg 44 MPG on daily 20 mile commute in mixed hwy/city driving. Love the DSG transmission. Car feels very solid. It reminds me of a more refined, better version of my well-loved but long gone '83 GTI, similar feel in the seats and suspension. Very comfortable for a small car. You pay a bit of a premium for the Golf because it is still made in Germany, but I think will prove to be a long term good value. Diesels have come a long way. Car is quiet, and while not a racecar, has good acceleration and great torque.

Favorite Features

Heated, comfortable supportive seats, Bluetooth with voice command integrated easily with cell phone, satellite radio, sport suspension, understated and tasteful interior design. Fuel economy on par with a hybrid but way more fun to drive! A small car that feels and handles like a larger vehicle. Comes with nice rubber monster floor mats, great for New England climate.
