What’s New in the 2019 Volkswagen Golf?
Every year Volkswagen makes at least a few changes to their lineup of cars and SUVs. The iconic Volkswagen Golf remains one of the longest-running nameplates on the road today, and there’s a reason for that. The utility combined with always-updated technology makes it a popular choice. Find out what’s new in the 2019 Volkswagen Golf here on our blog!
The biggest change for the 2019 Golf will be under the hood. Rather than a 1.8L turbocharged engine, it will get the same 1.4L turbocharged engine that the 2019 Jetta has. This amounts to 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. There is also an option for a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic transmission.
There will be two trim levels for the 2019 Golf: the S and the SE. The S will be getting new standard equipment that was previously optional: Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring (Front Assist), Blind Spot Monitor, and Rear Traffic Alert. Meanwhile, the SE will offer a new optional Driver Assistance Package which will include features such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keeping System, (Lane Assist), High Beam Control (Light Assist), auto-dimming rearview mirror, and 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
