www.autobytel.com/volkswagen/golf/2015/?id=32972 The 2015 Volkswagen Golf has been completely redesigned and is now in its 7th generation. This car is based on a new architecture that is shared with the Audi A3 featuring many parts in common. The SEL trim seen here has a base price of $26,995.

Under the hood is the 1.8 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that makes 170 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The powertain offers fantastic response all across the REV range once the turbo gets going at 1600 RPM. Fuel economy is 25 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway. On the inside the front seats are exceptionally comfortable. The steering wheel has nice smooth leather and a flat bottom.

The Golf is not only fun to drive; it delivers comfort, cargo capacity, fuel economy, top safety, and more.

      I love my 2017 Golf TSI. I’ve got the DSG and sometimes it gets a little funky, but it’s super fun!!! And I can haul groceries and my fam in it!

      You're sitting in the backseat and your legs are obviously touching the backs of the front seat and you're saying basically, 'Yeah, my knees are slamming into the back of the front seat but there's absolutely plenty of room back here!' How can you say that? It's OBVIOUSLY very tight!

      I wanted a focus as well because it is a great all around car. I really wanted a manual focus. But once I drove the golf......and then my wife saw the golf sportwagen...I have a 2016 sportwagen now! No disappointments. I have the only one in my town. I have only seen a few others that are 2015 TDIs that the poor owners are probably about to give back to vw. I bought the limited sportwagen. It is very close to an sel with all the safety features (cross traffic alert, blind spot monitors, automated cruise control, and auto braking) plus leatherette, heated seats, proximity key,, push button start, special alloys, panoramic sunroof and apple CarPlay for under $26000 window sticker. However I received a $4000 rebate then another $1750 playing hardball with my dealer and I got mine for $20000+. Now that is the best value in the entire car business!

      I test drove just this trim level and was truly impressed--a fat cut above most except maybe for the Mazda 3. Very refined, well-executed. I liked that the transmission gives you options....Excellent ride, handle, feel. A lot of fun to drive. I wish that VW would offer this trim level in an all-light colored interior--like available with the SE trim. Also--stand alone blind spot option AND remote start.

      Forget the loaded model.  Get the TSI five-speed manual, which has a proper transmission and loses a lot of the expensive, unnecessary options.  You can get one for less than $20,000...much less, given how much VW is discounting since the TDI scandal.

      While it seems like a pretty good car, the reality is that it is overpriced by 7 thousand dollars. VW needs to come back to earth if they want my business.

      I don't like that they've gone back to turbo's. 

      Everyone has now days. But once they are out of warranty, what are the odds you will get 250,000km / 155,000miles out of a turbo and no issues. My guess not likely.

      +jldude84 fair, but i'm mistrustful at the stage mileage/year wise when the turbo is out of warranty that i now gotta drop major coin on if it fails.

      Check Tire Rack and Discount Tire, etc. for wheel and tire packages.  For really common cars, Pep Boys may have something for you.  It's not hard to put together a good set for 5/8 the prices that the dealerships charge, and you can keep or sell the stock set.  Not a big deal.

      In my country you can't get anything for under $20.000 brand new. A Golf with the weakest engine stripped costs about $31.000, $34.000 on average. After BMW bought Mini the S Cooper is a good contender, the A3 sports coupe as well. Basically anything is less boring than Golf. I would even choose a trike before a Golf.

      +ventende I'm just wondering what you drive to consider this boring is all. What would you consider more fun to drive that is also under $20,000 brand new?

      Why is it so hard for you to accept an honest answer to your question? Something tells me you bought this car and now everyone that doesn't like it becomes an enemy of yours. I think this car is as boring as they come. It's really nothing exiting about a product that is made to please everyone, that's not progress and in my mind good industrial design doesn't work on those premises. There are too many compromises when your all too frenetically afraid of loosing old customers and gain new terrain, it all becomes repetitive and theres no real progress going on. It's a very boring product and boring is as I said the most describing word for it. Boring sells cause it's transparent. People know what they get and many people like predictability, but that doesn't make this car anywhere near interesting or exiting. Now deal with it or stop reading comments.
