The 2017 VW Golf Is Fun and Spacious

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf proves that you can have a practical hatchback with a luxury feel thanks to its versatile design and high-end materials within the cabin. The hatch design creates plenty of cargo room, and the engine is both powerful and efficient. In addition to the Golf trims, there are also numerous variations on this classic, such as the e-Golf electric vehicle, the Golf SportWagen, the Golf Alltrack adventurous wagon, the fun Golf GTI, and the performance-oriented Golf R.

2017 Golf Exterior Features

Volkswagen makes it easy to get inside your 2017 Golf thanks to keyless access. Once you get in the cabin, take advantage of push-button start. The Golf’s rear spoiler helps with styling as well as aerodynamics, and the available panoramic sunroof is perfect for making the most of nice Texas days. Upgrade to get automatic wipers and headlights that take some of the guesswork out of driving in all conditions. No matter which Golf trim you choose to drive around Austin, you will get plenty of style thanks to the chrome grille accents and logo integrated into the handle of the hatch. All models also have integrated turn signals in their heated side mirrors, features that ensure other vehicles can tell where you are turning and let you always see clearly in your mirrors. The base trim has halogen headlights that feature polycarbonate lenses that are lightweight, clear, and chip-resistant for durability. On the upgraded trim, the headlights become automatic. Depending on your trim, the 2017 Golf comes with 15-inch Lyon alloy wheels or 16-inch Dover alloy ones.

2017 VW Golf Interior Features

Inside, the Volkswagen Golf has 60/40 split and folding rear seats that let you customize your cargo area and feature convenient release levers. With the rear seats upright, the Golf gives you 22.8 cubic feet for cargo; folding them flat increases this to 52.7 cubes, impressive figures for the class. It is even possible to adjust the cargo floor of the Golf, something most hatchbacks in its class can’t do. Speaking of seats, the front seats come with 8-way partial power adjustment and lumbar support and can be heated. The front center armrest has storage, as expected, and is adjustable. The standard cooled glovebox is a nice touch, perfect for storing a bottle of water or important parts of your lunch. You can also upgrade the upholstery to imitation leather and get heated front seats. The standard climate control system has rear passenger ventilation and a pollen filter, and the multifunction steering wheel is always wrapped in leather. For added convenience, the 2017 VW Golf always has visor vanity mirrors with illumination and covers, a one-touch feature on the power windows, four reading lights, and a sunglasses holder.

VW Golf Performance

Driving the regular version of the 2017 Golf always puts you in control of a 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with front-wheel drive. You can choose from a 5-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed automatic and will always get 170 horsepower. Models with the automatic transmission have 199 pound-feet for torque, while those with the manual have 184 pound-feet. The available Tiptronic transmission also features a Sport Mode that lets you tap the shifter to change modes and customize your driving experience. Regardless of the transmission, the 2017 VW Golf will deliver 29 mpg combined, more than enough to save you money on gas.
