Volkswagen's Golf has been the king of the premium compact hatch for generations, and now it's almost time for the eight-gen to arrive. The Golf offers a blend of refinement, build quality, and price that helps it stand out from the pack.
There are few changes this year, as VW has announced 2021 will be the last for this car. New larger wheels and a new infotainment system with wireless App-Connect and now standard navigation are a nice touch and many of the previously optional driver aids are now standard on Highline.
The 2021 Volkswagen Golf is offered in Comfortline and Highline trims, both offering a choice of gearbox and a 1.4L turbo-four.
Comfortline starts with new 16-inch wheels as well as cruise control, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped wheel, shifter, and handbrake. Power locks, windows, and mirrors are standard and new for 2021 is an 8.0-inch infotainment system offering Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, built-in navigation, and voice control.
Highline offers 17-inch alloys and a panoramic sunroof as well as leatherette seats and keyless access and start. Dual-zone climate control is included as are front assist emergency braking, blind-spot detection, lane assist, and radar cruise control.
For options, you're limited to colour and gearbox.
Manual transmission Golfs are estimated to achieve 8.4 L/100 km city, 6.6 highway, with the automatic at 8.1 and 6.6.
