When it comes to family cars, fewer brands can compare to the Volkswagen. The ‘people’s car’ has always been a favorite for families that need a spacious, fuel-efficient and powerful car. The Volkswagen Golf especially has carved out a niche for itself that gives hard competition to popular models such as Toyota’s Corolla, and Ford’s Focus. Why should you go for a Volkswagen?
European car brands have led the way in fuel efficiency. The Volkswagen is a good example of this efficiency at work. The Golf has an average of 29 mpg combined rating (city and highway), while the Jetta averages 33 mpg and the Beetle 29 mpg. This fuel efficiency is thanks to the turbocharged engines even in the smaller family models.
Ask anyone who has driven a Volkswagen before and they will tell you it handles corners like a Boss! The superior engineering is seen in the handling capabilities of the car. It remains planted on the tarmac as you push the throttle further than usual.
A family type Volkswagen like the Jetta or Passat will easily leave behind models in the same class like Toyota Fielder, or the Ford Focus. This has made Volkswagen a popular choice with younger owners who would like to push things a little further.
The Volkswagen Golf GTI catches the attention of many performance enthusiasts. It comes with a powerful 210 HP engine, that can deliver 220 HP when using a performance package. For a little bit extra, the Golf GT-R will deliver 292 HP with a performance bordering that of muscle cars.
Safety standards are impressive even in economy price Volkswagen models. The classic Volkswagen Golf, for example, comes with 7- airbags, and city emergency braking system, which gets into action whenever the car senses a collision.
The Volkswagen is popular for its spaciousness. The Golf SportWagen comes with 66.5 cubic feet of cargo space. It is not lazy either, with 170 HP of engine torque. The classic Golf has 52 cubic feet of cargo space. This spaciousness coupled with powerful engines makes the Volkswagen an attractive option if you have a large family.
Apart from the edge in performance, over other family sedans, Volkswagen models will come with extra features that are only found in pricier models of other brands. Standard safety features include emergency braking system and Post-collision braking system
