2018 Volkswagen Golf Safety & Technology
When it comes to the world-acclaimed quality of German engineering found in every Volkswagen model, there's no doubt that the new 2018 Golf is made to be among the safest on the road. In fact, strict government safety testing has already recognized the new 2018 VW Golf with the highest 5-star overall safety rating. That has a lot to do with standard features including advanced electronic stability control with electronic differential lock, leading-edge braking technology, and anti-slip regulation. If a collision proves unavoidable, impressive structural engineering that includes anti-intrusion side door beams, automatic locking retractors for the seatbelts, crash-optimized body, and even automatic post-collision braking offer a level of safety not commonly found in this small car segment. Advanced technology ranging from the updated infotainment system to driver assist features including front assist, voice control, and blind spot monitoring takes your safety to an even higher level in the new 2018 Volkswagen Golf.
What's the Performance Like in the New 2018 Volkswagen Golf?
This is the car that defines the Hot Hatch, and we think you'll agree that the new 2018 model continues to illustrate exactly what a fun, sporty, and economical hatchback should be. Under the hood, you'll find a proven turbocharged engine that pumps out an exhilarating 170 horsepower for this small car. What's more, we expect it will continue to gain up to around 36 MPG. When you consider that the advanced German engineering behind this engine is also putting you in control of 199 lb/ft of torque, there's no end to the excitement you can enjoy in the new 2018 Volkswagen Golf. Every bump is smoothed over and every turn is straightened with precision-tuned fully-independent suspension while the electric power assist steering provides comfortable and exact feedback at the wheel. There's so much more performance that we could go on about, but we think you'd be best served with a test drive at Carter Volkswagen in Ballard.
