Volkswagen has always done small cars right. Although the German brand is finally figuring out the SUV market — introducing two new larger people-movers this year, the Atlas and an all-new Tiguan — it’s still defined by its small, fun and more fuel efficient products like the 2018 Volkswagen Golf.
Now in its seventh generation, dating back to the 1974 VW Rabbit, the 2018 Golf is available in an expansive lineup with two body styles and six different models including an all-electric version. Each delivers a unique and affordable combination of style, luxury and performance.
Sold around the world, the popular VW Golf is a consistent favorite in the compact hatchback and wagon segments. In the U.S., it successfully competes against such models as the Honda Civic, Mazda3, Toyota Corolla iM, Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra, Subaru Impreza and Kia Forte.
