The Volkswagen Golf has added more standard equipment over the years as it's grown out of its pure economy-car roots--and as it's watched the South Korean car companies set the pace for features.

For 2011, the Golf adds a a couple of new standard items, which are nearly the extent of the changes for the model year. All Golfs now come with standard power windows, locks, and mirrors; cruise control; air conditioning; and an AM/FM/CD/MP3 player with an auxiliary jack. The Golf TDI diesel tops that list with more standard gear, including an LCD-screen music interface; Sirius Satellite Radio; a multifunction steering wheel; a six-disc CD changer; and Bluetooth.

Golf buyers of all kinds can order a sunroof, and Bluetooth is available on the base model. Heated seats are an option, too. The TDI model gets an upgrade option for a 300-watt Dynaudio Lite audio system that sounds crisp and clear, and worth the added premium over the base system. The truly big-ticket option on the Golf is a navigation system that includes a 30GB hard drive for music and maps, DVD playback, an SD card slot, and USB connectivity.

All 2011 model-year Volkswagens include a new three-year, 36,000-mile maintenance plan, a new value proposition that could tip the balance for buyers shopping a price point.

Conclusion

The base 2011 Volkswagen Golf won't seem austere; the TDI is positively plush, with Bluetooth and satellite radio.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
