Fun, zippy car!
This car is fun, fast and does a great job for your every day commuter. It’s comfortable, great sound system and quiet. If you and your other half or friend wanted to go on a road trip, no doubt you wouldn’t have a great time. The furthest I’ve gone so far non stop is about 100 miles and I was averaging 37-39 mpg
2018 VW Golf SE
5 years ago, I test drove a Golf TDI 5M. Ended up purchasing a Jetta SW 6A the year after. 4 years later I now own a Golf TSI 5M and it’s as fun to drive as the one I test drove 5 years ago. It also is roomier than 5 years ago.

The 2018 Volkswagen Golf is a compact hatchback with a near-luxury interior and refined driving dynamics. For this year, Volkswagen simplified the Golf lineup to two trim levels: the S and the SE. Both trim levels come standard with a 170-horsepower turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and a five-speed manual transmission.

The manual-equipped Golf returns an EPA-estimated 29 mpg combined (25 city/34 highway), while the automatic drops each of those numbers down by 1 mpg. In our testing, Volkswagen's economy hatchback covered 0-60 mph in 7.8 seconds, which is quick for the class.

New for the 2018 Golf S are standard LED daytime-running lights and taillights, automatic wipers and automatic headlights. Inside, Volkswagen upgraded the standard infotainment system to a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Golf SE comes with more luxuries such as 16-inch alloy wheels, a power sunroof, faux leather upholstery, heated front seats, and keyless entry with push-button start. You also get active safety features including blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. New to the 2018 Golf SE is an 8-inch touchscreen.

While the cost of entry is higher for the Volkswagen Golf than for many other economy compacts, its base equipment by and large matches what you'll find in competitors' midlevel trims. However, active safety features and driver aids are more limited on the Golf than on many more recently redesigned cars.

Still, we like the Golf's quiet, roomy and upscale interior, in no small part because it feels more entry-level luxury than economy compact. We also appreciate the refined ride quality and good driving dynamics. The Golf is a fun, little car that's also a nice place to spend time.

Make sure to check out our full review for more information. If you think this is the right car for you, take advantage of Edmunds' shopping tools to get the best deal on a 2018 Volkswagen Golf in your area.
