The Volkswagen Golf: Your Versatile and Affordable Hatchback

The Volkswagen Golf has been around for decades and remained popular throughout its entire history. In fact, the Golf is such a popular model that it has spawned numerous related models with clear inspiration from the original Golf. Today, you can drive the traditional Golf hatchback, the versatile Golf SportWagen, the new and adventurous Golf Alltrack, the stylish Golf GTI, the high-performance Golf R, or the electric e-Golf. The fact that Volkswagen is able to offer such a range of Golf variations indicates that this model is a great value and incredibly practical; remember that those configurations don't even include the various trim levels.

No matter where you go, the Golf is popular for its compact footprint and hatchback design that delivers true versatility. Its small size and efficient engine means that it gets excellent fuel economy, and you can easily buy a new Golf for less than $20,000 with used models saving you even more money. Any way you look at it, the Golf is a great purchase with its long list of standard and available features and comprehensive warranty.

How the 2017 Volkswagen Golf Was Updated

Taking a look at the 2017 Volkswagen Golf, you will notice numerous updates, mostly to the way that the trim levels are set up. Volkswagen streamlined the trim options as a way to make production easier and reduce costs. Even so, you can easily customize your 2017 Golf. You will notice that now you can only get the Golf as a four-door hatchback, as the two-door version is gone. Every dealership will still have two trims, the S and the Wolfsburg Edition. The second of these is completely new and designed to appeal to drivers who want the higher end features previously offered in the Golf along with some others. Just a few of the amenities you get standard on the new 2017 Golf Wolfsburg Edition include a sunroof, 16-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, heated front seats, push button start, leatherette upholstery, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, and forward collision featuring automatic braking.

If you are interested in the other versions of the 2017 Golf, you will notice updates to their lineups as well. The Golf GTI has added a new four-door Sort trim sitting between the existing S and SE models. This new model comes standard with the performance package that increases power and adds a limited-slip differential plus the brakes found on the Golf R. Additionally, the new Sport GTI has bi-xenon headlights, keyless entry, push button start, 18-inch alloy wheels, and LED running lights. Looking at other Golf models, the 2017 Golf Alltrack is all-new, offering more adventure for those who love the Golf's features.

From the Rabbit to Golf: The VW Golf History

With more than four decades of history, the Volkswagen Golf has come a long way since its first appearance, when it was known as the Rabbit in the United States. The first Golf was created as a replacement for the Beetle, which was getting old. It was specifically designed to be spacious yet compact and known as the Golf in most countries, with the exception of the U.S. and Mexico. Throughout its history, the Volkswagen Golf has gotten larger as people's requirements have changed. The second-generation Beetle was responsible for introducing many features to compact vehicles, like ABS, power steering, four-wheel drive, and a regulated catalytic converter. In addition to enhancements to the engine, some significant milestones for the Golf were standard side airbags, ABS, and direct injection diesel engines in the third generation, a Cabriolet in the third generation until 2002, higher-quality materials in the fourth generation along with the first dual-clutch gearbox, and auto stop/start plus hill assist and park assist for the sixth generation.
