2014 Volkswagen Golf – Review, Specs, Configurations, Prices, and Interior

2014 Volkswagen Golf

MSRP: $19,995 - $25,200










  • Excellent diesel fuel economy
  • Broad cargo space
  • Smooth handling
  • Premium cabin


  • Poor fuel economy with a base engine


Few compact cars match the driving dynamics, spaciousness, or upscale cabin materials of the 2014 Volkswagen Golf. And it sits in the middle of the class because the majority of the rivals are not as expensive to own. Before the arrival of a brand new 2015 VW Golf, the VW Golf 2014 and its sports sibling Volkswagen GTI will be the last. In 2014, the seventh generation vehicle to take their name will arrive, so the 2014 cars will have a short year.

The current (and the new) car design automatically describes it as golf with design indicators that evolve deliberately. The 2014 Golf competition is a bit more premium than those cars when it comes to both traditional compacts such as Ford Focus, Mazda 3, and Subaru Impreza as well as two more recent entries, Korea’s Hyundai Elantra GT and Kia Forte, which indicates that the price tag is higher. The golf is well-positioned with hatchbacks undergoing a comeback, a hatchback over 40 years now.

Reviewers say the Volkswagen Golf 2014 is powerful, but disappointed by its fuel economy scores, at the bottom of the class. The turbo diesel Golf TDI is much better for its outstanding fuel economy and additional torque. All models are superb and fun to drive, say, automotive writers, pointing to crisp steering, strong braking, and a smooth yet pleasant ride.
