Exterior Features of the 2016 VW Golf
As mentioned, you can configure your 2016 Golf to have two doors or four, and there will not be a big difference in space, just ease of getting to the rear seats. The base Golf sits on 15-inch alloy wheels, but you can also get 17- or 18-inch ones instead. All Golf models have heated mirrors and full power accessories for convenience, and most offer a sunroof, as well. Higher trims have automatic headlights, automatic wipers, and fog lights to help you drive in any weather. Keyless entry plus ignition is also available, and you can add a Lighting Package to the top two trims. This will give you xenon headlights, cornering lights, and LED daytime running lights. Together, these features greatly enhance your visibility while improving your Golf’s style so you can be safe and seen at the same time you turn heads wherever in Texas you go. Most trims offer a sunroof on your 2016 Golf so you can make the most of gorgeous weather whenever it appears or let your passengers stargaze while you drive at night.
2016 VW Golf Interior Features
The plastics on the base version of the 2016 VW Golf are well-grained and feel soft to the touch. The interior arrangement ensures that all switches, buttons, and other controls are within easy reach of the driver and intuitive to use. The driver and front-seat passenger will have plenty of support even on the longest of drives, and everyone gets more than enough legroom and shoulder room. The Golf is actually spacious enough to be a family vehicle, even if your kids are teens and fully grown. For more comfort, choose a model with 8-way power and power lumbar for the driver. The front seats can be heated, and you can enjoy V-Tex, Volkswagen’s premium vinyl upholstery, on the top trims levels. You should always be able to position the steering wheel in a comfortable manner since it tilts and telescopes. With all seats occupied, the Golf has 22.8 cubic feet for your cargo, and you get a class-leading 52.7 cubes by folding the rear 60/40 seats flat. The cooled glovebox is a unique touch that many drivers will appreciate, particularly those that like to keep parts of their lunch or a water bottle chilled. Also related to temperature, the standard air conditioning becomes dual-zone automatic climate control on the top VW Golf, letting everyone customize his or her ideal environment. This trim also has interior LED reading lights for efficiency.
Performance of the 2016 VW Golf
The Golf runs on a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine with a turbocharger that gives you 170 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque with the 6-speed automatic transmission. Opting for the 5-speed manual brings torque down to 184 pound-feet. Experts agree that the Golf feels more powerful than the competition when in action. The engine feels nice and punchy and will smoothly overtake other vehicles on the highway, merging with a breeze. Those who go with the 6-speed manual will find it easy to shift as the clutch pedal requires light effort and the shift gates are distinctive.
