A Chart Topper Year After Year

The Volkswagen Golf is a charmer and a top choice among many hatchback shoppers browsing Camelback Corridor. In fact, the Golf has spent ten years on Car and Driver's 10Best list--a feat not many other cars have accomplished. The likeable hatchback is an all-around stunner from its youthful design and versatility to its turbocharged engine and premium performance. With four model choices--standard, GTI, SportWagen and R--and a variety of trim levels, the 2017 Volkswagen Golf in Phoenix truly has something for everyone.

Which Golf Will You Choose

The standard Golf is featured in two trim choices: S and Wolfsburg. The S trim is equipped with Bluetooth audio streaming, a touchscreen sound system and a USB port. The Wolfsburg adds leatherette upholstery, heated seats, and a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel. Looking for more cargo space than the compact Golf can provide? Many 2017 Volkswagen Golf reviews recommend the similarly-equipped SportWagen model with a whopping 66.5 cubic ft. with the seats down.

The sportier GTI model adds more athletic design features like a honeycomb grille with a red accent, an integrated rear spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels. The GTI comes in four trims--S, Sport, SE and Autobahn-- and starts with the same great features as the Golf S. The Sport trim, new this year, adds LED headlights, sports accents, keyless ignition and entry, and special floor mats. Top-tier trims throw in more tech, like a larger infotainment system with navigation. The track-ready Golf R model also offers similar trim levels with matching amenities.

Several Turbo-Charged Engine Choices

The Golf and Golf SportWagen models are equipped with a 170-horsepower 1.8-liter turbo engine paired to a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic. The Golf GTI adds a power boost with a 2.0-liter turbo that kicks out 210 hp (220 hp on Autobahn trim) and is available with an upgraded six-speed manual or a six-speed dual-clutch automatic. The GTI also boasts sport-tuned suspension, progressive power steering and dynamic chassis control for top-notch response. For even more power, 2017 Volkswagen Golf reviews recommend the Golf R. The race-ready model's 2.0-liter turbo is rated at 292 hp, and is available with a six-speed DSG transmission and 4MOTION AWD.

Stay Safe in the Golf

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf in Phoenix is equipped with a rearview backup camera, seven stability-enhancing systems, an automatic post-collision braking system and more. Top-tier trims add forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking and a blind spot monitor. For more information on the safety features available on Golf models, visit Camelback Volkswagen!
