The Top 8 Volkswagen Golf FAQs

Crown Point and Hobart area drivers love the Volkswagen Golf for its versatility and its compact nature. It's efficient, easily parked, and will make a statement wherever you drive it.

Before you come down to our Merrillville lot to see it in person, read up on some frequently asked questions below:

#1: How Many Passengers Fit in the Volkswagen Golf?

Though the Volkswagen Golf is compact, it can comfortably fit up to 5 passengers. It also has a hatchback trunk and foldable rear seats that bring the cargo area from 17.4 cubic feet to an accommodating 53.7 cubic feet.

#2: Where is the Volkswagen Golf Made?

Until recently, the Volkswagen Golf was made in Mexico--but recent restructuring and changes should see production move to Germany within the year putting German engineering back at the heart of the car.

#3: What Tech Comes in the Volkswagen Golf?

Inside the Golf, drivers will find a premium 8-inch glass touchscreen that is Bluetooth compatible, has voice control features, and can seamlessly connect to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. To sweeten the deal even more, SiriusXM All Access will be available with a 3 month trial subscription to give you all the news, comedy, and musical range you crave.

#4: Does the Volkswagen Golf Need Premium Gas?

Nope! If you feel like treating your car once in a while (and flush out your tank), fill up with a mid-grade higher-octane fuel, but for your day-to-day, the Volkswagen Golf only requires regular gas to run its best.

#5: What Trim Levels are Available for the Volkswagen Golf?

The Volkswagen Golf comes with 7 stylish color schemes, four interior upholstery options, and two distinct trim levels so you get the most out of your ride. Check out:

  • The Volkswagen Golf S: Includes a 6.5-inch touchscreen and blind spot monitor with front assist (safety features).
  • The Volkswagen Golf SE: Has a larger 8-inch touchscreen, a panoramic sunroof, and a driver assist package for your convenience.
  • #6: How Fast Can the Volkswagen Golf Go?

    The Volkswagen Golf comes fitted with a lithe, turbocharged engine that allows up to 147 horsepower, 184 lb-ft of torque and can give drivers up to 37 miles to the gallon of highway driving range. It also comes with available 8-speed automatic transmission and a manual shift to Tiptronic mode or Sport mode to give you an extra performance kick.

    #7: Is the Volkswagen Golf Reliable?

    The Volkswagen Golf has been a fan favorite since its inception in the 70's. The look has changed but Volkswagen's commitment to quality has not waned. The Golf is now the strongest, most efficient, and most stylish it has ever been and drivers love it more than ever. With regular maintenance and care, your Golf could stay on the road for decades to come and drive smoothly the whole way.

    #8: Should I Buy the Volkswagen Golf?

    If you're looking for a durable, well-engineered, efficient vehicle, the Volkswagen Golf could be right for you. Daytime running LED lights, a 60-40 split folding rear seats, a sleek European-inspired design, a rear view camera system, and a suite of safety features including automatic post-collision braking, and stability management systems, make the Golf a pleasure to drive and a wonderful investment.
