Overview

What's New in the 2015 Volkswagen Golf?

The Golf SportWagen is all new this year.

Which Golf is the Best?

The SE trim level strikes us as the sweet spot, giving you keyless entry/start, the panoramic sunroof, Fender audio and rearview camera without breaking the bank. No matter which engine you choose, the SportWagen SE is a lot of car for under $30,000.

Is the 2015 Volkswagen Golf a Safe Car?

Standard safety features on the Golf SportWagen include anti-lock disc brakes, traction and stability control and six airbags (front, front-side, side-curtain).

Competition

2015 Volkswagen Golf vs the competition

2015 Subaru Outback -- The Outback is a larger car than the Volkswagen, but it's also more capable, providing standard all-wheel drive and a raised suspension.

2015 Volvo V60 -- Considering pricier versions of the SportWagen? See if your Volvo dealer can hook you up with a deal on a V60. It's nicer inside than the Volkswagen, and it's swifter, too.

Toyota Prius v -- This supersized Prius hatchback is even more fuel efficient than the SportWagen, so if you're considering the TDI engine for its fuel economy, the Prius v could be an appealing alternative.

Used Audi allroad -- The luxurious allroad offers standard all-wheel drive and tough off-road hardware, and it's a little faster than the SportWagen 1.8T. Look for a certified pre-owned example with a factory warranty.
