A robust subject of candidates has left many of the 60 jurors who vote for the award wringing their palms, however we’re clear thinkers right here at New Car Check Drive and I’m casting my vote for the 2015 Volkswagen Golf.
The whole lineup of 2015 Volkswagen Golf and GTI fashions is excellent and deserves recognition. These automobiles are clean and refined, straightforward and enjoyable to drive, with sharp dealing with. The cabins are elegant, unadorned and fashionable. The entrance seats are snug and getting out and in is straightforward. These are sensible automobiles with helpful cubby storage and many of cargo area.
A range of fashions is out there to go well with totally different tastes and budgets. The 4-door variations make wonderful every day commuters, whereas the two-door fashions add sports activities attraction.
The Golf is comparatively reasonably priced, with a number of fashions beginning under $20,000. The 1.eight-liter turbocharged engine that comes on the entry fashions does a very good job. (This consists of the Launch Version, Golf S, Golf SE, Golf SEL.) The turbocharged diesel in the Golf TDI will get an EPA-estimated 31/forty five mpg Metropolis/Freeway and gives a lot of energy. The GTI scoots round, propelled by its in a position and prepared 2.zero-liter turbocharged engine with 210 horsepower and an exhilarating 258 foot-kilos of torque.
