2018 Volkswagen Golf in Amherst, OH 

The capability, efficiency and performance of the Volkswagen Golf have made it one of the most popular vehicles available at the Spitzer Volkswagen showroom. For the new model year, the 2018 Volkswagen Golf in Amherst, OH has picked up several improvements that will put the five-door hatchback in an even stronger position than it has been in the past. The automaker has redesigned the exterior with sharper lines which are also accented by new front and rear bumpers as well as a new chrome grille. Additionally, Volkswagen has made LEDs standard equipment for the hatchback's taillights and the array of daytime running lights. Additionally, Volkswagen has expanded the number of trim grades of the 2018 Golf that offer active safety systems as standard equipment.

One of the things that has put the 2018 Volkswagen Golf in Amherst, OH out in front of the hatchback segment is that it offers one of the most engaging performance and handling profiles available. Each of the three available trims of the 2018 Golf, S, SE and SEL, start with the same engine. Under the hood of the 2018 Golf is a turbocharged, 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine making 170 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque. Most versions use a five-speed manual transmission to start, but a six-speed automatic can be chosen. The top-of-the-line SEL trim gets the six-speed as standard from the start. Using the previous model year as a baseline, drivers should expect to achieve about 25 mpg (city) and 35 mpg on the highway.
