Performance in more ways that one. The Golf TDI’s low fuel consumption combined with outstanding drivability is a tough combo to beat. In spite of higher purchase price it just may be cheaper in the long run. VW just set a new Guinness Book World record for low fuel consumption driving around all the lower-48 states.
The Golf is roomy with seating for five, can hold lots of cargo and is easy to maneuver in a crowded city. Take a look at my drive review right here.
