What’s New for the 2014 Volkswagen Golf TDI

The 2014 Volkswagen Golf will be completely redesigned for 2014 with multiple stylistic changes throughout the hatchback.

2014 Volkswagen Golf TDI Exterior

For the 2014 model year, the Golf TDI doesn’t stray too far from its typical styling with new headlights and taillights and more striking bodylines culminating in the well known silhouette so typical of the hatchback. The rear is a touch rounder than it has been in the past, adding a bit of a softer look to the Golf.

2014 Volkswagen Golf TDI Performance

When it comes to powertrain for the 2014 Golf TDI, Volkswagen isn’t messing around. Using Volkswagen TDI Clean Diesel technology, the 2.0-liter diesel (TDI) model will no doubt make driving the hatchback fun and fuel-efficient with 140 horsepower and 236 lbs-ft of torque, providing the type of performance expected of a German-made car.

2014 Volkswagen Golf TDI Efficiency

Fuel economy is key for the 2014 Golf TDI getting an EPA-estimated 42 mpg highway with the ability to go 609 miles per tank. This means a lot less frequent stops at the gas station to fill up, taking out the stress of filling your tank almost entirely.

2014 Volkswagen Golf TDI Interior

Regardless of the trim level chosen, the 2014 Golf TDI offers a quality interior, reflecting Volkswagen’s craftsmanship. The cabin mixes a sleek, clutter-free design with seemingly upscale materials to create an interior that has a touch of class without being too ostentatious.

2014 Volkswagen Golf TDI Safety

Sadly, the safety features offered in the European market Golf TDIs, such as drowsy driver detection, won’t be making an appearance in the U.S., but it will come standard with 4-wheel disc brakes, electronic stability and traction control, and a plethora of airbags to keep everyone safe.
