Just because you’d like to drive a smaller car doesn’t mean you have to settle for a cramped interior. Volkswagen hatchbacks offer the best of both worlds, and with a wide variety of configurations to choose from, the Volkswagen Golf is one of the best options for drivers near West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Explore the VW hatchbacks with Volkswagen Santa Monica today!
VW Golf Hatchback
The 2019 Volkswagen Golf hatchback is sold in two trims. Choose between the S, priced at $23,845 MSRP*, or the SE, priced at $24,145 MSRP*. With either, you’ll receive a 147-hp 1.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, as well as the following standard and available features:
- Blind Spot Monitor & Front Assist
- VW Car-Net® App-Connect
- 6.5-inch touchscreen sound system
- Available panoramic sunroof
- Available driver assistance package
When this hatchback is properly configured, you’ll enjoy up to 29 mpg city and 37 mpg highway, according to EPA estimates. You’ll also be able to make use of up to 53.7 cubic feet of cargo space, with the rear seats folded.
If you desire even more space, you can also check out the VW Golf Sportwagen design. This VW Hatchback also offers a more powerful engine as an optional upgrade.
VW Golf GTI
Drivers who place a high premium on performance will love the 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI. With a starting price of $27,595 MSRP*, four different trims to choose from, and a standard turbocharged engine with 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, it’s a great value for adventurous drivers on a budget. Upgraded models include leather seating surfaces, navigation systems, and more.
Models offer EPA estimated fuel economy of up to 24 mpg city and 32 mpg highway, and let you use Drive Mode Select engage Eco, Comfort, Normal, Sport, and Custom settings. No matter which Volkswagen hatchback GTI trim you choose, you’ll enjoy about the same amount of interior space that’s offered in the Golf.
If you’re more interested in the backroads than the racetrack, consider the 2019 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack.
VW Golf R with 4MOTION® AWD
Drivers with a little bit more stretch in their budget would be wise to consider the 2019 Volkswagen Golf R, the Volkswagen hatchback that’s best-suited to high-speeds and exhilarating curves. With 288 hp and 288 lb-ft of torque, its 2.0L TSI® turbocharged engine has no trouble getting you off the line, and 4MOTION® AWD will help you keep moving forward.
Pricing for these models start at $40,395 MSRP*, with standard DDC® adaptive chassis, VW Digital Cockpit, and tons of interior features, it’s not hard to see why more and more drivers are choosing the Golf R. It’s also available in more unique colors than most of the other VW hatchbacks in our lineup.
More and more drivers are upgrading with all-electric vehicles, and according to the experts at Car and Driver, the 2019 VW e-Golf hatchback just might be “the best electric vehicle in the compact class.” It possesses a range of 125 miles, and with a 134-hp 35.8 kWh 323 V lithium-ion battery propelling you, you’ll be able to enjoy every mile between charges. And starting at only $31,895 MSRP*, it’s affordable too!
Since it offers up to 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space, it’s also one of the most useful small electric cars on the road, and since its exterior is based on the well-loved Golf, it’s a good choice for the EV driver who’d like to escape notice.
