2003 Volkswagen Golf GLS 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Compared to all other small cars, the
Golf wins as the best quality and best
value. No car at $16K to $19K is
perfect, but the Golf is the closest.
At 3000 lbs., with 8 airbags, standard
4-wheel anti-lock disks, and available
ESP, it is the safest. It is also fun
to drive, with solid handling and a
remarkably compliant ride for small a
car. High resale value makes VWs the
only econoboxes that are worth leasing.

Best Features

Fun to drive, safety features, easy- shifting 5-speed, ride, handling, noise isolation, clever us of interior space.

Worst Features

Little more power in the 2.0L engine, better cup holders, an inch or two more in the back seat. (Much of the competition is better in rear seat room.)
