2017 Highlights

The two-door Golf has been discontinued, leaving the four-door hatchback as the only available body style. The S can no longer be ordered with a sunroof, while the SE and SEL trim levels have been dropped and replaced by a Wolfsburg Edition trim. Some options packages have also been axed, along with features such as adaptive cruise control and an automated parking system.

Happy Golf Girl
Great hatchback, comfortable, peppy, fun to drive and smart looking. My Wolfsburg edition came loaded, didn't need any additional options.
Impressed
Great fuel mileage, very sturdy on the highway. Previous GTI owner (1989 European model)...performance with manual is better than the 8valve GTI. Shifting is a bit vague, and clutch release is very short. After a 400+ mile hwy/town/country road trip, averaged just over 40 mpg, but never got above 75 and shift at 2000-2400 rpm. Golf handles steep hills in 5th and cruise control with ease. Would not normally write a review after 4 days...but this vehicle is a pleasure to drive even with flighty shift pattern. After 6 months, the clutch and shift pattern remains vague; however, the performance, fuel mileage, and comfort greatly outweigh the cons. I am averaging over 35 mpg combined, and often see 40 mpg going to work--no traffic and hitting no traffic lights. Would buy another Golf.
Developed vibration after a month and VW wont help
At first I dismissed VW since I could not get features I needed with manual transmission. VW came up with Wolsfburg edition. This was perfect configuration. I loved the car when I bought it. Very smooth, you ride it like on rails, quiet too - unlike Civic and Mazda 3 I testdrove. Has enough power and good pickup on low RPMs. I thought I got luxury car for a price of econobox. Then, 6 weeks later, after less than 2K miles engine developed vibrations. You can feel it though the steering wheel. Can deal on the short trips but if you have to hold it for an hour you feel everything shakes around. You can feel whole car shaking sometimes when started cold. Put your hand on idling engine and it is all shaking. I did not have so much vibration on my 99 Accord with 200K miles on it. It was rust bucket, yes... but never jumped around so much. I took it to the dealer and the answer is - unless it breaks or Check Engine comes up - nothing can do. This was my second visit. First one was due to paint peeling in the size of a dollar bill which they fixed with the heat gun. Will see how long I can last and if it goes away, if not this Golf will be up for sale lot sooner than I anticipated.

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf is that most logical of vehicles: a small, front-drive hatchback. But as space efficient and fuel efficient as hatchbacks can be, they've too often been stigmatized as cheap and poorly made. Don't believe it. The Golf drives like the sophisticated, refined and comfortable car it is. And inside the fittings are elegantly and logically designed using high-quality materials. The Golf is the affordable hatchback that doesn't feel compromised.

VW introduced the Golf way back in 1974 (it was called the Rabbit over here until 1984, and then again from 2006 to 2009), and the carmaker has been relentlessly honing its talents ever since. This is in fact the seventh generation of the Golf, and it's built atop VW's still fresh and impressive Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB is the German acronym) architecture. So maybe the most surprising thing about the 2017 edition is that it's actually less expensive than the 2016 model. Go figure.

Some of those savings can be directly attributed to VW's decision to simplify the lineup in the United States. First, the three-door model has been axed, while the remaining five-door is now limited to only two models: the low-end S and the better equipped, but value-oriented, Wolfsburg Edition. The top-end SEL has also been eliminated. Some features from last year's mainstream SE model, like the Fender audio system and 17-inch wheels, have migrated over to the Wolfsburg.

Wolfsburg, incidentally, is the German town where Volkswagen is headquartered. And yes, the Golf sold in the United States is made there in VW's massive assembly plant. Plan your vacations accordingly. VW builds other models in North American plants, such as the larger Passat sedan in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and the smaller Jetta sedan in Pueblo, Mexico. The Golf is, by far, the cheapest new car sold in the United States that's built in Germany.

All Golf hatchbacks sold in the United States use a 1.8-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 170 horsepower. Specialty Golf models like the Sportwagen, GTI, R, Alltrack and electric e-Golf are considered separate models by VW and covered elsewhere. So shopping is an adventure!

Running either the standard five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions, the Golf is EPA-rated at 29 mpg combined (25 city/35 highway). The popular and fuel-thrifty TDI diesel models have been discontinued because, well, you know, VW doesn't want to talk about that right now.

The Golf isn't alone in the hatchback market, so make use of all the tools here on Edmunds to inform your best decision and get a great deal from a dependable dealer. After all, that's why you're on this site, right?
