Which VW Models are Hatchbacks?

2019 Volkswagen Golf

While most buyers are now interested primarily in crossovers and SUVs, there remains a vocal minority that still prefer the smaller and more agile profile of the hatchback. Some prefer the sleekness and road-hugging stance of a car, while enthusiasts adore the mix of innate practicality and impressive agility a VW hatchback can offer. Known for all of the above, the Volkswagen Golf was a founding instrument of what enthusiasts now call Hot Hatches, and the next generation of performance Golf hatchbacks is coming fast. If performance is not a priority for you, the standard Golf can still be easily found on the used market. 

VW Hatchback: Used 2020 VW Golf

Volkswagen hatchbacks offer great value and practicality across the board, but a used Golf will leave an exceptionally small impact on your wallet. Featuring virtually all of the modern interior technology and features of the latest models, the 2020 VW Golf is a great option for those looking for something more svelte and agile than a crossover SUV, but with the same level of practicality. With 53.7 cubic feet of cargo space, and 28 mpg city/36 mpg highway fuel economy, it makes errands around Kalkaska and Lake City a breeze. Key standard and available interior features include:

  • 6.5-inch touchscreen sound system
  • Available panoramic sunroof 
  • VW Car-Net® App-Connect
  • Blind Spot Monitor & Front Assist
  • Available driver assistance package 

VW Hatchback GTI: 2022 VW Golf GTI

Offering a complete package of practicality, value, and performance, the 2022 VW Golf GTI is the perfect daily driver for many an enthusiast. With a curb weight under 3200 pounds and 228 turbocharged horsepower, this new GTI swings through corners with advanced suspension and drivetrain technology that adds both confidence and fun to any driving scenario. Naturally, all this driving excellence does not dimension the original Hot Hatch’s practicality whatsoever. It is a true Volkswagen hatchback; GTI.

Volkswagen Golf Hatchback: 2022 VW Golf R 

While the standard Volkswagen Golf hatchback is excellent for commuting and errands in Bellaire, and the Golf GTI is the perfect all-around car for whom driving is not a necessity, but a lifestyle, the Golf R is something different than both. Boosted to 315 horsepower and developing 310 lb-ft of torque, the Golf R is a hot hatch that can give pause to supercars on track. The critical ingredient that allows all that power to be used to its full potential is a state of the art all wheel drive system, which includes moment to moment torque vectoring, among other advanced capabilities. Crucially for enthusiasts, the Golf R will be available with a six speed manual transmission alongside the dual clutch transmission option, just like the Golf GTI.
