Wherever you go in the world, the Volkswagen Golf is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable hatchback models. Despite its small size and the typical Nova Scotian’s propensity for larger SUV models, the Golf represents a great choice, and today we’ll tell you why.
Class-Leading Efficient Torque
The VW Golf may be small, but it’s powerful, too. It’s loaded with a 1.4L TSI turbocharged engine that can output an impressive — in fact, class-leading — 184lb-ft of torque. The best news for Nova Scotians is that the Golf isn’t just powerful, but also very efficient. How does 6.3L/100km on the highway sound? And 8.2L in the city? It was built for downtown as well as out-of-town life, not to mention any weather.
It Gives You Choice
When you need some flexibility in choice, the VW Golf can deliver. Choose from a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic with Tiptronic technology. After that, choose what extra interior features you’d like to add in — heated seat, a panoramic sunroof that lets passengers see the Nova Scotian sky as you drive and more — as well as which model you’d like to drive, the Comfortline or the higher-end Highline.
Once again, a hatchback doesn’t have to mean that you give up on key safety technology. The VW Golf comes loaded with VW’s Front Assist system. This includes collision and pedestrian monitoring, which will warn you if the system thinks you’ve missed a potential obstruction ahead. Furthermore, you can go for the blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control and lane assist features, too. Make your ride safer with a Golf.

We’re three years away from half a century of VW Golfs on our roads. When a Nova Scotian is looking for an efficient, comfortable and safe hatchback to use either in the city or in the wide open, then they need not look further than the VW Golf.
