Which VW Models Are Hatchbacks?

Are you struggling to choose between a spacious SUV and a smartly-designed sedan? Our neighbors love Volkswagen hatchbacks because they offer the best of both worlds! With an expansive cargo bay and a sleek, unmistakable design, the Volkswagen Golf has taken Wesley Chapel and Clearwater drivers by storm. Of course, it’s available in a wide variety of configurations, so you can choose between the Golf, the Golf GTI, the e-Golf, and the Golf R. Explore each of them in detail below!

VW Golf

VW offers the 2019 Volkswagen Golf in two trims, the S and the SE. The former starts with an MSRP of $21,845*, while the latter is offered at $24,145*. No matter which trim you choose, you’ll benefit from the inclusion of a 147-hp 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which delivers up to 29 mpg city and 37 mpg highway.

If you’re not yet convinced that the Volkswagen Golf hatchback is a great value, just check out a few of its highlighted features:

  • Blind Spot Monitor & Front Assist
  • VW Car-Net® App-Connect
  • 6.5-inch touchscreen sound system
  • Available panoramic sunroof
  • Available driver assistance package

Of course, there’s one other major benefit of choosing this model! With the rear seats folded flat, you’ll be able to make use of 53.7 cubic feet of cargo space. For even more space, check out the Golf Sportwagen design!

2019 Volkswagen Golf


The 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI is essentially a more performance-focused version of the model described above! The most affordable of its four trim levels starts at $27,595 MSRP*, but if you decide not to opt for the baseline S, you can upgrade with the Rabbit Edition, the SE, or the Autobahn trims.

In each configuration, the Volkswagen hatchback GTI sports a 228-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Although it’s significantly more powerful than the setup in the Golf, it still offers excellent fuel economy, with 24 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. What’s more, you’ll be able to switch back and forth between Eco, Comfort, Normal, Sport, and Custom settings using the standard Drive Mode Selection feature. Higher-level models offer leather seating surfaces and navigation systems, and each trim delivers the same amount of interior space as the Golf.

For a more off-road-focused Golf performance, consider the Golf Alltrack.

VW e-Golf

The 2019 Volkswagen e-Golf is an all-electric version of the VW Golf, and according to the experts at Car and Driver, it’s “the best electric vehicle in the compact class.” It’s 35.8 kWh 323 V lithium-ion battery is powerful enough to put out 134 horsepower for a total range of 125 miles, and since it’s exterior is based on the Golf, it’s sharp enough to fly under the radar!

It doesn’t offer quite as much cargo space as its non-electric cousins, but with a maximum capacity of 52.7 cubic feet, it certainly comes close! Pricing starts at $31,895 MSRP*.

VW Golf R with 4MOTION® AWD

If the Golf GTI is a “performance-focused” VW hatchback, the 2019 Volkswagen Golf R is an even more impressive version that truly feels at home on the racetrack! It’s only offered in one trim, with a starting price of $40,395 MSRP*, but since it comes standard with a 288-hp 2.0-liter TSI® turbocharged engine and 4MOTION® AWD, you’d be hard pressed to want for more!

It’s standard DDC® adaptive chassis allow you to enjoy impeccable control on the roads near Brandon, and with VW Digital Cockpit, you’ll never have to squint or search for important vehicle information. Did we mention that it’s available in dozens of unique exterior colors?
