The rest of the 2019 Volkswagen models are finally coming out of the woodwork. However, we won’t overcomplicate things and only focus on one of those new models today. We’ve picked the 2019 Volkswagen Golf, the frontrunner and originator of the VW Golf family.

The biggest change to the traditional VW Golf for its 2019 model is its engine. The 2019 Volkswagen Golf has replaced the 1.8L inline 4 engine from its 2018 model with the same 1.4L turbocharged inline 4 engine found in the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta. As shown in the 2019 Jetta, as will hold true for the 2019 Golf, this change of engine reduces horsepower but greatly increases fuel economy and responsive handling which is a greater, more appealing factor for the compact builds of the Jetta and Golf. So, let’s begin with a look at the new 2019 Volkswagen Golf.
