Performance Features of the Volkswagen Golf

An industry leader for decades, Volkswagen leads the market of popular compact cars with its Golf, a four-door design that provides a roomy interior and plenty of power under the hood for drivers who need to pull into traffic quickly and enjoy peppy acceleration on the highway.

The Golf's turbocharged engine packs 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque into its tidy frame. The eight-speed transmission performs well on its own, but drivers can take greater control over their ride by switching to either Tiptronic or Sport mode to tailor engine performance to the demands of the road.

Tiptronic mode allows the driver to shift gears just as if driving a manual transmission using either the gear shift or paddles located on the steering wheel. When in these modes, the vehicle will also allocate its resources in favor of enhanced engine performance. Drivers can expect 29 mpg around town and up to 37 mpg on the highway under normal driving conditions.
