While the Volkswagen Golf costs a bit more than many rival models, it also feels more sophisticated and refined in general. Especially in TDI form, it gets the gas mileage of a hybrid with an eager, responsive driving feel that you won't find in any of the popular hybrids. The Golf TDI's gas mileage of up to 42 mpg also enables a driving range of 600 miles or more.
The Golf's option packages have been reconfigured for 2012, so that both the gasoline and diesel models are offered in three different trim levels. Most of the features are as previously offered, but 17-inch Salamanca alloy wheels are new for 2012 on the Golf TDI, and the top Tech Package on the TDI now includes LED daytime running lamps, Dynaudio premium sound and push-button start.
The 2012 Volkswagen Golf is offered in 2- or 4-door hatchback models, both with a choice between two engines, one gasoline, the other diesel. The gasoline choice, which is lower-priced, is a 170-horsepower, 2.5L 5-cylinder, while clean-diesel fans will like the 2.0L turbo-diesel 'TDI' 4-cylinder. Two-door gasoline models come with a standard 5-speed manual, while a 6-speed automatic is optional on that and standard on the 4-door models. Meanwhile, Golf TDI models come with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic. Both automatics include Tiptronic manual mode, while the DSG shifts much quicker than a typical automatic. TDI models achieve much better gas mileage, with EPA ratings of up to 30 mpg city, 42 mpg highway.
