Fall 2009 Auto Guide
New and redesigned Volkswagen Golf

Select model:
Volkswagen Golf

Smoother exterior styling, a revised interior and a new diesel engine option top the list of changes to the 2010 Volkwagen Golf. It also marks the return of the Golf name, which had been shelved in recent years in favor of Rabbit. New headlights, a wider grille and restyled front bumper give the Golf a sleeker look than ever before. Likewise, the interior has been updated, too, with a new center control panel, new steering wheel and new gauges. Power in the Golf 2.5 is supplied by a 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter, inline five-cylinder engine. The optional 2.0-liter diesel in the TDI puts out 140-horsepower and comes with either a six-speed manual or six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. Standard safety features include side-impact and side-curtain airbags. Side-impact airbags for the rear seats are optional.
