2018 Volkswagen Golf vs 2017 Volkswagen Golf

2018 Volkswagen Golf vs 2017 Volkswagen Golf

We’re excited for drivers to take advantage of the newest member of the Golf family: the 2018 Volkswagen Golf. Since its introduction back in the 1970s, the Golf has stood the test of time and proved why it was brought here in the first place. So how does it compare to last year’s model? Take a look as we compare the 2018 Volkswagen Golf vs 2017 Volkswagen Golf!

One of the more exciting changes to the 2018 Golf, as with any Volkswagen model, is the new People’s First Warranty. This 6-year/72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty gives drivers the peace of mind that few others offer, as it’s one of the longest warranties in the industry. It’s also transferable, meaning if you choose to sell the car early with time still left on the warranty, the recipient will get to have the rest of the warranty.
