If you want a reliable vehicle for you and your family but don't want to drive around a huge minivan or SUV, a compact family car might be best for you. They can be fun, efficient and easier to drive than you might think. These fun cars are pretty popular, however, which means the market is going to be filled with competition. With so many cars available, which one is best for you?

One of the more impressive family cars is the 2018 Volkswagen Golf. While it effectively serves as a compact family car, it works well for personal use and can even be enhanced for high performance. The latter is common for Volkswagen, but its versatility sets the Golf apart from the rest. Learn more about the incredible features of the 2018 Volkswagen Golf and discover if it's the car you've been looking for.


Volkswagen is famous for its performance, and the Golf is no exception. This little hatchback can pack quite the punch with its 1.8-liter lightweight turbocharged engine. That engine offers 170 horsepower and 184 pound-foot of torque putting you behind the wheel of more power than you might think. Controlling that power is easy with the Tiptronic with Sport mode feature that lets you shift with wheel paddles.

Economically, the Golf performs very well. Most sedans have trouble competing with the Golf's EPA-estimated 36 mpg highway and 25 mpg city. Whether you're on the open road or in a busy city, the Golf will save you on gas without sacrificing engine power.


Family cars need space, and the Golf has plenty. Front passengers can enjoy 38.4 inches of headroom and 41.2 inches of legroom. The rear passengers have a bit less but can still experience serious comfort inside this family car. You can add natural light throughout the cabin with the Golf's panoramic sunroof that spreads over all seats.

If you're more interested in carrying cargo rather than passengers, the Golf has got you covered. Being a hatchback, the Golf already has a lot of interior space, but if you fold the seats down, you have an impressive 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space at your disposal. Don't hesitate to fold the seats either. Their 60/40 split design and power release levers make seat manipulation easier than ever.


What is a modern car without technology? Advanced tech is what sets the new age of cars apart from the old, and the Golf has a lot to offer. Connect your smartphone to your car with the VW Car-Net App-Connect feature. This handy piece of tech gives you access to some of your favorite apps right on your Golf's built in touch screen. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities, the Golf is ready to connect and give you complete control over your infotainment system.

The Golf also offers driver assistance technology designed to keep you safe. Backup cameras are standard in most modern cars now, so the Golf naturally has one too. However, the Golf additionally has available Forward Collision Warning which can alert you to dangers up ahead and Autonomous Emergency Braking which can apply extra pressure to the brakes if you can't get there in time.
