2020 VW Golf
There’s a reason the Volkswagen Golf is nicknamed the perfect hatchback— and it’s not just because of its convenient design and cargo space. In addition to it’s compact capability, each VW Golf engine provides an impressive fuel efficiency rating for Tampa drivers. Read on below to discover the Volkswagen Golf mpg ratings across both trims, and stop in to Reeves Volkswagen when you’re ready to test drive this iconic hatchback.

Volkswagen Golf MPG

The Volkswagen Golf gas mileage on both the Golf S and Golf SE trim levels clocks in at an EPA-estimated 29 mpg city/37 mpg highway/32 mpg combined. This outstanding fuel economy is a result of intentional design and the VW Golf model’s lightweight and efficient engine. Learn about the VW Golf engine, specs, and interior features below.

Volkswagen Golf Engine

The VW gas mileage can be attributed to its 1.4-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. This fun-to-drive engine offers 147 hp, 184 lb-ft of torque, and a standard six speed manual transmission (with optional eight-speed automatic). If you’re familiar with past models of the VW Golf, you’ll notice this engine actually has less power than the previously standard 1.8-liter in-line four base engine— and it’s not a bad thing. The trade off here is the improved fuel economy, better for commuting or running errands around Brandon.
