“Volkswagen Golf also offers one thing no competitor can match: A quick and fuel-efficient diesel engine.” —kbb.com²
Go ahead, pass the next filling station. And the next. And even the next. Because the Golf TDI Clean Diesel engine sips fuel at the wallet-friendly rate of up to 42 highway mpg. Yes, you read that right. That’s up to 609 miles on just one tank.³ If that sounds impressive, prepare yourself for this: that T in TDI stands for turbocharged. And this engine delivers 140 hp and 236 lbs/ft of torque for exceptional power right from the start and plenty of oomph to keep you going. You can even add our DSG® automatic transmission with Tiptronic® to enjoy imperceptibly fast gear changes to go with that oomph. It’s a beautiful thing when a love of driving and a love for the environment coexist under one sculpted hood.
