2019 Golf VW

For years, the Volkswagen Golf has been one of America’s best-loved hatchbacks. It packs a lot of comfort, power, and convenience into a relatively small package. Now, the engineers at VW have retooled this beloved vehicle and made it better than ever before. Anyone who’s in the market for a hatchback needs to check out the new Volkswagen Golf.

The best way to do that is to visit us at Street VW, where we have a number of Volkswagen cars for sale, including the 2019 Golf. We’d love to show you under the hood and let you take one out for a spin. Before you stop by, take a look at this model overview to know what features to look for.

What to Expect From the 2019 VW Golf


Start with the cabin space. The Golf has a tall roofline, which makes for a nice, spacious front seat. The driver and passengers alike will find it easy to get in and out of this car, and the seating itself is plush and ergonomic.

Don’t let its small frame fool you: The 2019 Golf has a surprising amount of storage space, including a number of clever compartments to store your stuff. And when you put the rear seats down, it offers 52.7 cu. ft. of trunk room that surpasses any of the Golf’s competitors.


Volkswagen models are known for their technology, and the new Golf is available with an 8-inch touchscreen display that supports Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, as well as audio streaming and voice control for other compatible devices. Available driver assistance features like Blind Spot Monitor and security features like VW Car-Net® Security & Services® keep you connected to your car.


The new Golf has a slightly smaller engine than the previous iteration that puts out 147 horsepower, but it compensates with 184 lb.-ft. of torque for quick bursts of speed. The new 1.4L turbocharged engine offers smoother gear shifting, peppier acceleration, and better fuel economy. The combined city/highway fuel efficiency rating is 32 mpg, which is 4 mpg better than the previous model.
