HERNDON, Virginia — The redesigned 2015 Volkswagen Golf goes on sale in August at U.S. dealers, with a revised lineup that includes a new two-door entry model priced from $18,815 and a lower-priced Golf TDI that starts at $22,815.
The least expensive 2014 model was the Golf 2.5L, at $20,815. All prices include an $820 destination charge.
The new 2015 Golf gets a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine in place of last year's normally aspirated 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine. Depending on model, buyers can choose from five- and six-speed manual transmissions and a six-speed automatic.

The most expensive gasoline-engine version is the four-door Golf SEL, at $27,815.
VW is marketing the 2015 Golf TDI as a four-door only, in three trim levels. The top-of-the-line model, the Golf TDI SEL, is $28,815.
At introduction, VW will offer a limited run of 650 Golf Sport models, based on the four-door Golf SE and priced from $27,750.
A new Forward Collision Warning system is bundled with Park Distance Control and priced at $695. It is available on 2015 Golf SE and SEL trim levels. A new Automatic Post-Collision System is standard on the 2015 Golf.
