The difference between these two, as mentioned earlier, is the standard features. Even in its base trim, the Golf comes with standard features such as voice activated controls, rearview camera, keyless entry, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and more. While horsepower is almost the same, there is much more torque in the Golf, which will give you a quicker get up and go time. While Honda might have better name recognition in the U.S., is that really worth the difference?
