As the entire compact class ups its game with tech-savvy features and luxury-like standard equipment, VW and the Golf have responded. They're not quite as plush for the dollar as some of the newest Korean cars, but the Golf lineup now has competitive gadgets to keep enthusiasts in the fold, straying just a bit from its econocar roots in the process.

All Golf hatchbacks now come with standard cruise control; power locks, mirrors and windows; air conditioning; and a CD player and an auxiliary port. TDI versions add an LCD interface for the audio system; satellite radio and a CD changer; steering-wheel audio controls; and Bluetooth.

On the options list, VW lists Bluetooth for base models, a sunroof, and heated seats. TDI versions can upgrade their listening pleasure with 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 new 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

Every Golf brings game; the TDI model gets standard satellite radio and Bluetooth.

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.
