Fuel-Efficient Features

1.8T 4-Cylinder TSI Engine

The Golf Hatch's standard engine outputs 170 hp and up to 199 lb-ft of torque, offering plenty of pep without cutting into mpg ratings.

Front-Wheel Drive

The main advantage of FWD is fuel economy. FWD systems are made from fewer parts, which reduces the car's overall weight rating.

Power-Assisted Steering & Brakes

Power-assisted front/rear brakes and a Servotronic steering system reduce mechanical strain, which helps to preserve the Golf Hatch's mpg ratings.

Aluminum Cylinder Head

Compared to an iron cylinder head, an aluminum cylinder head is much lighter and cools more quickly, resulting in more efficient performance.

Drive On Your Terms with the VW Golf

The 2017 VW Golf is offered with two transmissions: a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic. With its base engine and 5-speed manual, the Golf earns an EPA-estimated 25 mpg city/36 mpg highway rating. Opting for the 6-speed automatic reduces the Golf Hatch’s fuel economy by only one mile per gallon on the highway. Either way, you can expect to save at the gas pumps!
