It may not be the first body style you think of when you are looking for a new car, but there are plenty of reasons you don't want to overlook a hatchback. Particularly if that hatchback is the Volkswagen Golf from Sunnyvale, CA. This sporty compact is ready for action but knows what it means to be elegant. It might be the most fun Volkswagen to drive. But what makes it stand out? Sunnyvale Volkswagen wanted to put together a brief list on what we love about this exciting hatchback.

  1. Energetic Powertrain: Getting around Sunnyvale takes on new life with the peppy powertrain of the VW Golf. It packs in 147 horsepower and 184- pound-feet of torque under the hood, thanks to its turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine. You get a six-speed manual transmission for a smooth-shifting ride, or you can opt up and get the reliable eight-speed automatic.
  2. Spacious Cabin: To say the Golf can seat up to five people comfortably, would not be doing it justice. Few people can complain about being cramped in the back seat. You'll find it provides plenty of room to stretch out in the V-Tex leatherette seats, which come heated, by the way. The slim roof pillars open up to give you a great view of the road and your surroundings. Getting in and out of the Golf is no problem, thanks to the tall roofline and taller floor.
  3. Ample Cargo Room: Chances are you are in the market for a hatchback because of the cargo room it provides. You need something to carry your band's gear, or team's equipment, or even your kid's school projects. The large cargo space makes anything possible. With the seats at full attention, you'll get a generous 22.3 cubic feet to work with. When the 60/40split-folding rear seat is laid flat, you will find an impressive 53.7 cubic feet of storage. But that isn't your only option. The Golf is loaded with small-item storage spots throughout the cabin.
  4. Reliable Volkswagen Safety: When you buy a Volkswagen, no matter the model or style, you know you are going to be protected. The Golf is no exception. The 2020 Golf earned an Overall Five-Star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for its crash-test performances. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety granted it its highest rating of Good its tests. The fact it comes with automatic post-collision braking, pedestrian monitoring, and a rearview camera system is a good sign it is looking out for you, as well.

There are many more reasons to consider the Volkswagen Golf if you like an athletic ride. The only way to find out your new favorite features is to see it for yourself at Sunnyvale Volkswagen.
