Specs and features in the 2020 Golf

Performance-wise, the Golf is one of the most efficient hatchbacks you’ll find. It comes equipped with a respectable 1.4L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that gets 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Drivers also have the option between a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic transmission. This is the perfect power combo, because while the engine is capable enough to get you where you need to go, it also provides an efficiency rating of 29 city/35 hwy mpg. As you’ll notice from the table above, this is a slight decrease in what was offered for 2019, as the 2019 Golf got 29 city/37 hwy mpg. However, the Golf still remains one of the most efficient hatchbacks on the road, and it also makes up for that with newly-standard features such as Blind Spot Monitoring and a forward collision warning system. When you add in all the interior comfort and convenience amenities, you’ll see why so many drivers flock to the Golf.
