2019 VW Golf: Stylish Design

The design of this iconic car has changed a lot over the decades, but the 2019 VW Golf has always managed to stay sporty, stylish, and timelessly relevant. Available 16-inch split-V alloy wheels make it look sleek in profile, especially set against that distinctive jellybean body.

LED taillights and daytime running lights give the VW Golf a modern look from both the front and back. If you value efficiency, you'll like that they run on less power and last longer than traditional halogen bulbs. Meanwhile, an optional panoramic sunroof opens your ride to some natural light in the skies above.

This ride's sleek design extends to the hatch trunk. You'll find nearly 23 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, perfect to fit the family luggage for a weekend trip.  

Hatchback Performance Specs

Peek under the hood of the Volkswagen Golf, and you'll find a turbocharged 1.4L 4-cylinder engine powering this car forward. It pairs with either a 6-speed manual transmission or 8-speed automatic transmission and generates 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, moving you from Point A to Point B in a smooth, reliable way.

It's an efficient engine, too, with an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 29 city and 37 highway MPG.1 With figures like that, you'll be spending less time at the pump and more time on the road!

Top-Tier Technology Features

The 2019 VW Golf really stands out for its infotainment system. Whether you're stuck in traffic on the way into work or embarking on a cross-country road trip, you'll appreciate being entertained by this intuitive system.

It comes standard with Bluetooth®, so you can stream your favorite podcasts, playlists, and talk radio, no matter where the road takes you. Plus, with VW Car-Net® App Connect, you can access all your favorite smartphone apps on the go.

With available keyless access and push-button start, you don't have to waste a second. Unlock and start the car without ever taking keys out of your pocket!
