2016 Volkswagen Golf Santa Monica CA

We all like to have fun in our cars, but sometimes, we need them for work too.

Well, there is, and it's called the Volkswagen Golf. Check out the 2016 Volkswagen Golf in Santa Monica CA right here.

Versatility isn't just about the ability to optimize a vehicle's interior for passengers or cargo. It's also about being able to have a blast on the road when you have a craving for excitement. Whatever type of drive you're in the need for, the 2016 Golf has you covered with turbocharged power and new infotainment features.

If you're looking for a new hatchback that's powerful, efficient, and surprisingly efficient, the 2016 Volkswagen Golf is the car for you. Read on to learn more about it, and then come in for a test drive at Volkswagen Santa Monica.


The Golf's versatility begins with turbocharged power under the hood. A standard 170-horsepower engine is great for work or play, and better yet, it is capable of managing up to 25 mpg city and 37 mpg highway. Now you can have fun without worrying about expensive fuel costs.



When you want to stay connected, the Golf's new MIB II touchscreen infotainment system has you covered. With available VW Car-Net App-Connect, you can have access to intuitive smartphone connectivity platforms like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.



When you are ready to do a little work with the VW Golf, you'll find plenty of space to handle all the cargo you need to carry. The 60/40-split folding rear seats help make sure you have the right amount of space for passengers or belongings, offering up to 52.7 cu. ft. of cargo room.

Engine Specs

The VW Golf is powered by a turbocharged 1.8L TSI® engine that generates up to 170-hp. The engine delivers 199 lb.-ft. of torque when matched with an automatic transmission. You’ll receive up to 37 mpg highway* and 25 mpg city*, meaning less trips to the gas station. The Golf can accelerate from 0-60mpg in 7.8 seconds.


You can choose between a 5-speed manual transmission for slightly better gas mileage and controlled gear shifting, or a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic® and Sport mode for ease of driving. Both transmissions maximize performance based on your driving preferences.


The Golf seats five with ample space. V-Tex Leatherette seats are offered for stylish comfort. Sports sets with 8-way power adjustments and lumbar support are standard on the SEL trim.
