Used 2018 Volkswagen Golf Hatchback

2018 Volkswagen Golf

2018 Highlights

The Golf Wolfsburg Edition and SEL trim have been discontinued, and there's a new SE trim. That means there are just two trims for 2018: the S and the SE. Both get mildly revised styling, a few more standard features and new infotainment systems.


  • Squared-off hatchback design provides lots of room for cargo
  • Premium interior materials
  • Engine is powerful and fuel-efficient


  • Fewer luxury and convenience features offered than on rival hatchbacks
  • Automatic transmission doesn't shift as responsively or intuitively as we'd like

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.
