2011 Volkswagen Golf TDI: 30/42 mpg
EPA




The Volkswagen Golf lineup gets one of our highest ratings for fuel economy, even though there's not a hybrid in sight.

The Golf's turbodiesel four-cylinder does even better than some hybrids. According to the EPA, it delivers fuel economy of 30/42 mpg, whether you choose its six-speed dual-clutch automatic or a manual six-speed transmission.

With the standard five-cylinder, the Golf still passes the 30-mpg mark, though new compacts like the Hyundai Elantra are pushing 40 mpg. The Golf is rated by the EPA at 24/31 mpg with this engine and an automatic transmission; opting for the manual cuts city mileage down to 23 mpg, but boosts highway numbers to 33 mpg.

The Golf lineup includes a distinct GTI model with a turbocharged engine. It's covered separately, and rated separately.

Conclusion

The TDI gives the 2011 Volkswagen Golf hybrid-like fuel economy, though the five-cylinder is just average.

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.
