You might think of the 2018 Volkswagen Golf as the Little Hatchback That Could. While its small stature and understated body style might make some drivers overlook it in favor of a flashier or larger—or more expensive—model, the truth is that those people would be missing out on plenty of perks. Because this is one little hatch that has a lot to offer.
The Golf is dependable, practical, and budget-friendly, with a 170-hp turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that offers just enough pep, more cargo space than you might expect from a small hatchback, plenty of high-tech features, and a nimble ride with responsive steering.
Though there are only two trims to choose from, each offers an impressive selection of features and standard equipment that will appeal to drivers in this segment. The S trim brings standard features including LED daytime running lights, a 6.5-inch touchscreen sound system, and VW Car-Net App-Connect. The SE trim offers more premium amenities, including a larger, 8-inch touchscreen sound system, power tilting/sliding panoramic sunroof, and a blind spot monitor.
We’re convinced you can’t go wrong with either of these trims, and at Ventura Volkswagen, we have Golf models in stock and ready for you to explore further. Browse our online inventory to get a better idea of which model is right for you, and then come to our dealership for the fun part: test driving!
Peek Inside the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Interior
The Golf’s supportive, roomy seats (cloth upholstery is standard but heated leatherette seats are available) accommodate up to five in comfort even on long drives. The materials used in the interior are high quality and reminiscent of what you’d find in a luxury model.

The cabin of the Volkswagen Golf aims to make everything easily accessible for the driver. The cargo space is ample for the class, and configurable with the easy-to-use 60/40-split folding rear seats. Folding these seats flat opens up 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space.
