Hatchback Cars For 2013 - 09 - 2013 Volkswagen Golf
The 2013 Volkswagen Golf has long been a compact hatchback favorite due to its perceived upscale interior quality and smooth ride. The Volkswagen Golf also offers a pair of engine options, starting with a base 2.5-liter, 170 horsepower five-cylinder mill and moving up to a 2.0-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder that is good for 140 ponies and 236 lb-ft of twist. The base unit can be had with the choice of either a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, while the diesel Golf TDI provides the option of a six-speed manual or a six-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission. Fuel mileage for the TDI shows as a lofty 30-mpg city and 42-mpg highway, and the useful little hatchback can swallow up to 46 cubic feet of cargo.
