Volkswagen Golf 2017

Ever since 1974 the VW Golf has featured in many roles such as family car, personal car, hatchback, high performance hatch and so on. Enthusiasts have modified their Golfs to no end, and VW was no less earnest in experimenting with various configurations of this extremely popular car.

Today the newest Golf retails in the US starting at $19,895. It packs all the features and necessary gadgetry of a 2017 car, including push button start, keyless access, phone integration, Bluetooth streaming and a whole range of driver assistance features.

In addition to being smarter, the car is also safer, with several new safety measures having been incorporated. Unlike some of the other cars in its category however, the safety features do not take away from the driving experience.

VW has also endeavored to improve the car’s fuel economy. Golf was never a gas guzzler but now the 1.8 litre turbocharged front engine gets a fuel economy of 25 mpg in the city, or so VW claims.
