We love our American-made cars. However, sometimes it just doesn’t make sense to pick a car based on the name. When it comes down to crunch time, performance means everything. We know you’re looking for the best they have to give, which is why drivers looking for more power and more coverage can find refuge in the Volkswagen Golf. See how it compares here as we match up the 2017 Volkswagen Golf vs 2017 Chevy Cruze Hatchback.
The most notable difference right off the bat, as we mentioned earlier, lies in the power. With 170 horsepower available in the base trim, the 2017 Golf edges out the Cruze, which gets 153 horsepower. Torque looks better too, with the Golf and Cruze getting 200 lb-ft and 177 lb-ft, respectively. Add in some other neat performance features such as Corner Traction Control and a limited slip differential and it’s not hard to see why some dedicated Chevy fans are starting to lean toward the Volkswagen Golf.
