2018 VW Golf: Performance Specs

2018 Volkswagen Golf Interior TechnologyThe 2018 VW Golf has been recognized for its sporty ride, and that's first and foremost the result of the engine under the hood. This turbocharged 1.8-liter 4-cylinder provides a robust 170 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque when matched with the standard 5-speed manual transmission.

Upgrade to the available 6-speed Tiptronic® automatic transmission, however, and you'll see a boost in torque to 199 lb-ft. With this transmission, you can switch into manual mode whenever you like and have more control over your driving experience. Sport mode is optional as well, for a more exciting ride.

Test drivers have found that this engine provides more than enough power for daily driving, whether it's cruising around town or racing down the highways. If you want a VW Golf model that packs even more punch, consider the even sportier VW Golf GTI and VW Golf R models.

Interior Features & Space

There's room fit for a king in the front-row seats of the 2018 Volkswagen Golf. With headroom coming to 38.4 inches and legroom measuring 41.2 inches, you'll have no problem getting in or out of the car-or finding comfort once inside.

The back seat is a bit tighter, but still plenty spacious for the average-sized adult. Headroom is almost the same as up front, at 38.1 inches. And legroom sits pretty at 35.6 inches, well above the minimum needed to make adults feel comfortable.

This being a hatchback, the cargo bay is incredibly practical as well. Behind the rear seats is storage space measuring nearly 23 cubic feet, giving you plenty of room for your weekly groceries or duffel bags for your next weekend trip. Fold the rear seats, and you'll have more than 53 cubic feet for larger items!

Exterior Features & Style

2018 Volkswagen Golf Test DriveYou'll immediately notice the 2018 VW Golf with its jellybean-like body, which is available in a wide selection of colors (seven in total), from mysterious Night Blue Metallic to energized Tornado Red. With an angled rear window and angular headlights, it manages to repackage the hatch body style as something chic and sleek.

New for 2018, the taillights and daytime running lights now use LEDs. They look sharper, last longer, and run more efficiently than traditional halogen bulbs.

Another convenience? Rain-sensing windshield wipers are standard and will automatically adjust to the level of precipitation. Taken together, these features show how well the VW Golf has followed up sleek form with function.
