Did you say versatile? The Golf sure is. The base trim, available in three- and five-door variants, gets a 147-horsepower engine. If you want more performance, there's always the Golf GTI and R, which deliver 220 and 292 horsepower, respectively. A Golf SportWagen or Alltrack is ideal for active families, the latter blessed with AWD. And until Volkswagen hits the market with electrified cars under its new I.D. badge, the e-Golf makes city dwellers happy with a range of 201 kilometres.
