Digital Trends, the leading consumer technology publisher, has named the Volkswagen Golf the Best Hatchback in its Best Cars of 2019 roundup. Digital Trends praised the Golf’s overall value and available technology,such as it’s Adaptive Cruise Control and the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit.

“The Golf is a tech-focused driver’s car that never fails to reward,” says Adam Kaslikowski, Cars Editor for Digital Trends.

“Over four decades the Golf family has proven its value while delivering driving satisfaction and high quality for its loyal owners,” said Scott Keogh, President and CEO, Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. “This award from Digital Trends highlights how far the car has come in its technology offerings.”

The 2019 Volkswagen Golf is available in two different trim levels—S and SE. VW pairs a 1.4-liter four-cylinder TSI engine making 147 hp with either the six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission.

SE models offer an available Driver Assistance package, which includes Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keeping System, (Lane Assist), High Beam Control (Light Assist), auto-dimming rear view mirror, and 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

MSRP for the 2019 Volkswagen Golf starts at $22,740 with a standard six-speed manual transmission. Those with the eight-speed automatic transmission start at $23,840.
