Overview

   

The Golf lineup for 2019 features the same six vehicles from years prior. These are the Golf, Golf GTI, e-Golf, Golf R, Golf SportWagen, and Golf Alltrack. Those last two are part of the wagon category, meaning they have an extra foot of length in the back. Each vehicle in the VW Golf family capitalizes on its versatility, namely the ability to drive like a sedan with the benefit of extra cargo capacity.

Hatchbacks

The hatchback-style VW Golf is essentially the same as the wagon mechanically, but its shorter length overall means less cargo capacity and a bit more dynamic driving, especially around the curves. A few powertrain changes have been made to the base Golf for this model year. A 1.4-liter turbocharged engine has replaced the original 1.8-liter, and it can be paired to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. These transmissions have replaced the respective five- and six-speed units from last year. This smaller engine has raised the Golf's fuel economy to 32 mpg combined, 4 mpg higher than last year's EPA-estimated figure.

Those who crave a bit more power than the 147 horses in the Volkswagen Golf should look to the Golf GTI. With this model, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine produces 228 hp, a significant increase that adrenaline seekers will approve of. The GTI can be paired to either a six-speed manual transmission or the all-new seven-speed direct-shift gearbox (DSG) dual-clutch automatic transmission. It also includes some sportier features, including a lower, stiffer suspension, 18-inch wheels, sport seats, and unique styling touches.

The e-Golf is a fully electric hatchback featuring a 100-kW AC electric motor that achieves an EPA-estimated driving range of 125 miles. Also included is a 35.8-kWh battery pack, as well as an onboard 7.2-kW DC extra-fast charger.

Last on the list is the Golf R, undeniably the most powerful and sporty of all the Golf models. Its peppy 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers 288 hp and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. While the buyer has a choice between the standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, the Volkswagen 4MOTION all-wheel drive comes standard. For those who want additional flair, the R Line is customizable with forty-five color configurations, letting it truly stand out on the road.


Wagons

The remaining two Golf models are wagons, which Volkswagen has continued to sell well despite significantly reduced sales of this body style throughout the auto industry. The SportWagen provides 66.5 cubic feet of cargo space, on par with that of many crossovers or compact SUVs. With a tasteful interior, smooth turbocharged acceleration, and all-wheel drive availability, the SportWagen is perfect for those who crave the extra space but don't want to spend more on an SUV or simply prefer a driver's seat that's closer to the road.

There are two configurations for the SportWagen: a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder delivering 147 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque for front-wheel drive models, or the all-new turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder producing 168 hp and 199 lb.-ft. of torque for AWD models. The FWD SportWagen come with either an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission, while the AWD comes with a choice of a six-speed manual or a six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Last on the list is the Alltrack, which is based on the SportWagen but adds 4MOTION (AWD) as standard in addition to protective lower body panels and more ground clearance, making it more suitable for off-pavement adventures. Under the hood is the same turbocharged 1.8-liter engine that powers the AWD SportWagen models. Unlike the SportWagen, though, the Alltrack gets a premium trim level, SEL, which features navigation and an upgraded stereo system.
