The Compact Hatchback Volkswagen Drivers Love: The 2021 VW Golf

June 15th, 2021 by

The Volkswagen Golf has long held the title of most desirable compact hatchbacks. The 2021 Golf is no different, except now a significant overhaul in newly standard features drivers can look forward to. What is not different is the simple fact that this is not a one-size-fits-all vehicle with the incredible variety of options drivers can choose from to personalize their driving experience.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The 2021 Volkswagen Golf has a turbocharged inline-four engine providing the power to propel the car purposefully and reliably in most driving conditions. Around town, the 2021 Golf will never want for power. In high-speed scenarios, the Golf does have to exert itself to keep up during high-speed maneuvers. The VW Golf hugs the road around corners and offers an athletic feel to the unfailing and quick steering. Simply put, the 2021 Golf is a fun car to drive.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The interior of the 2021 Volkswagen Golf perfectly embodies the Volkswagen ethos: comfortable and functional. Expect clean, straight lines with a sedate color palette and a feeling of openness throughout the car. The interior is unexpectedly roomy, meaning even the rear seats are comfortable for adults during long drives. The Golf’s cargo space is similar to most other compact hatchbacks. However, it can accommodate slightly more due to the taller design.

Infotainment, Connectivity, and Driver-Assistance Features 

The 2021 Volkswagen Golf offers standard features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Expect USB connectivity and a 6.5-inch standard touchscreen.

The 2021 Volkswagen Golf did earn a five-star crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, meaning you can trust you and your passengers are safe in the Golf. The Golf no longer offers adaptive cruise control. However, it does come with standard driver-assistance equipment. Some key features you can expect include standard forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking and standard blind-spot monitoring, and rear-cross traffic alerts.
