VW Golf Comfortline 1.8 20V 4 Motion 4X4 Full Review,Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
One of the pioneers in the small hatchback segment, the Volkswagen Golf has
had a bit of a roller-coaster ride throughout its life. Debuting in Europe
in 1974, it came to the U.S. a year later wearing the Rabbit nameplate. Ten
years later and coinciding with a redesign, VW shifted the North American
version to the official "Golf" name. But even that did not last. In 2006,
after selling three generations of the Golf to American buyers, Volkswagen
had a nostalgic feeling and renamed its economy car the Rabbit for the U.S.
But guess what? Volkswagen had yet another change of heart and reverted
back to the Golf name for 2010. Yep, it's confusing. Hopefully, VW's Golf
name is back for good this time.
Current Volkswagen Golf
The Volkswagen Golf is a compact hatchback available in a two- or four-door
body style. Regardless of body style, the base Golf is powered by a
2.5-liter five-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower. A five-speed
manual is standard and a six-speed automatic is optional. Standard
equipment includes air-conditioning, full power accessories, cruise
control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and an auxiliary audio jack.
The Golf TDI model features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel that produces 140 hp and a robust 236
pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual is standard and VW's six-speed
dual-clutch automated manual (DSG) is optional. EPA-estimated combined fuel
economy is an impressive 34 mpg. The TDI trim also adds alloy wheels, a
sport-tuned suspension, Bluetooth and an upgraded stereo with touchscreen
interface and an iPod interface. A navigation system and xenon headlamps
Like the Rabbit before it and the Golf before that, the current Volkswagen
Golf stands apart in the compact class with an overall level of refinement
that simply can't be matched. The near-luxury quality of the cabin, the
European blend of smooth ride and driving involvement, and the subdued yet
classy styling make the Golf's price premium worth it. Regarding the Golf's
current lineup, we strongly recommend the TDI model because of its higher
level of equipment, strong engine and superior fuel economy. The base
engine is powerful for the class, but fuel economy suffers for it.
There is also a high-performance version of the Golf known as the GTI.
Used Volkswagen Golf Models
The Volkswagen Golf name returned for 2010, marking the first year for the
redesigned sixth-generation model. Previous to this for a few years, there
was the Rabbit. Should you be interested in a used Golf, it's important to
keep this in mind.
Introduced midway through the 1999 model year and sold up until mid-2006,
the fourth-generation Golf sported clean lines, an impressive standard
features roster and the availability of turbodiesel power -- a rarity in any segment, let
alone the economy car sector. In keeping with tradition, three body styles
were available: a two-door hatchback, a four-door hatchback and a
convertible (sold as a separate model under the Cabrio name).Enjoyable to
drive thanks to its responsive chassis, this Golf also offered a variety of
engines. The GTI could be had with a 2.8-liter six-cylinder "VR6" engine (a
compact, narrow-angle V6, which made up to 200 hp) or a 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The turbo-4, or 1.8T, as it was called, made either
150 or 180 hp, depending on the year; the 150-horse version was available
on the standard four-door Golf in 2000 and 2001.
Known as the TDI, the Golf's diesel offering consisted of a 1.9-liter turbodiesel inline-4, initially rated for
90 hp and capable of returning nearly 50 mpg on the highway. Golf TDI
models sold from 2004-'06 had an updated version of the 1.9-liter that
delivered 100 hp. Late in the model run, the limited-edition
high-performance R32 was offered, sporting a 3.2-liter 240-hp VR6,
all-wheel drive and tasteful body accents; it was sold only as a 2004
model.Most folks shopping the used Volkswagen Golf market within these
years, however, will probably be looking at the volume-seller Golfs (the GL
and GLS trim levels), most of which were powered by an outdated
two-valves-per-cylinder 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. With just 115 hp --
compared to the 125-150-hp ratings of most peers -- and below-average fuel
mileage, this power plant offered the worst of both worlds. Buyers looking
at '99 models should note that both third- and fourth-generation Golfs were
sold that year. horsepower is the same, but
the engines in the new Golfs had an upgraded cylinder head design for
better low-end response.
If possible, we suggest looking for a fourth-gen Golf with either the
1.9-liter TDI or the 1.8-liter turbo
instead. Note that Golf TDIs are relatively easy to find on the used car
market, while four-door Golf 1.8T models may be hard to come by because of
their short, two-year run. If you want the turbocharged 1.8-liter engine, you're more likely
to find it in the two-door GTI.
VW Golf 7 4MOTION - Animation Technology
Volkswagen is expanding the new Golf range: following the models with
front-wheel drive launched at the end of 2012, the versions with 4MOTION
all-wheel drive are now being unveiled. Volkswagen is thus continuing the
long tradition of four-wheel drive Golf models -- the first Golf with four
driven wheels made its debut back in 1986. The new Golf's permanent
four-wheel drive system is one of the most modern and efficient of its kind
in the world. In this latest version of the Golf 4MOTION Volkswagen is
using a four-wheel drive system with an enhanced, fifth-generation Haldex
coupling. The intelligently controlled 4MOTION drive weighs 1.4 kilograms
less than the previous system, requires no pressure accumulator and reacts
extremely quickly to every conceivable influence exerted on it. The result
is greater active safety and improved handling.
15 per cent lower fuel consumption. Volkswagen is offering the new Golf
4MOTION in Europe in three levels of specification (Trendline, Comfortline,
Highline) and with two turbo diesel
engines that provide both high torque and great fuel efficiency. The common
rail four-cylinder engines deliver 77 kW / 105 PS and 110 kW / 150 PS and
consume just 4.5 / 4.7 litres of fuel respectively per 100 kilometres. Just
how efficiently the four-wheel drive Golf works is shown by a fuel
consumption comparison between the 103 kW / 140 PS version of the old Golf
4MOTION and the new 150 PS model: despite being 10 PS more powerful, the
2013 Golf 4MOTION consumes 0.8 litres (15 per cent) less diesel.
High tech as standard. Like the front-wheel drive versions the new 4MOTION
models are equipped as standard with a Stop/Start system and battery
regeneration. Also included as standard even on the base version
(Trendline) are features such as the four-wheel EDS (electronic
differential locks on both axles), the XDS front and rear axle transverse
lock, the electronic stabilisation programme, an Automatic Post-Collision
Braking System, seven airbags, daytime running lights, air conditioning,
electric windows front and back, a multi-function display (on-board
computer) and a TFT display with touchscreen operation. The premium payable
for the permanent four-wheel drive system on the Golf 4MOTION -- sold
fundamentally as a four-door vehicle -- is €1,800 in Germany.
