The Golf is offered in just one trim level for 2020: the Golf TSI. Volkswagen's next-gen Car-Net telematics system and Wi-Fi hotspot capability are standard -- if you pay for the subscription. Both features have been updated across VW's lineup for 2020. See the 2020 Volkswagen Golf models for sale near you
Given how simplified the 2020 offering is, Golf buyers need only choose between the manual and automatic transmissions. Though it's on its way out, the seventh-generation Golf is still a compelling product. Just make sure that you're getting a great deal if you pick up a Golf in its final model year for this generation. Find a Volkswagen Golf for sale
The 2020 Golf only comes in one trim: the Golf TSI. (TSI is how VW brands its turbocharged engines).
The 2020 Golf comes standard with a variety of features, including proximity keyless entry with push-button start, leatherette seating surfaces, heated front seats, a tilt-and-slide panoramic sunroof, heated windshield washer nozzles, LED daytime running lights and taillights, forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, 16-in alloy wheels and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
The only option on the 2020 Golf TSI is an automatic transmission. With the base manual transmission, the Golf TSI runs $24,115 when factoring in VW's $920 destination fee. The optional $800 eight-speed automatic brings the total cost to $24,915.
The Golf's cargo capacity is impressive, with 16.5 cu ft behind the rear seats up to the level of the rear cargo cover -- as large as a midsize sedan's trunk -- and 22.8 cu ft. up to the ceiling. Fold the rear seats down and the cargo area grows to a remarkable 52.7 cu ft -- easily enough space to haul a bike.
