2012 Volkswagen Golf picture review accessory
With base GL models, the Golf is fitted with a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine. It is able to muster 115 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 122 lb-ft of torque at 2600 rpm. 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmissions are offered. The other engine powering 2012 Golfs is a 1.9-liter turbo diesel inline 4-cylinder engine. It delivers 100 horsepower at 4000 rpm and 177 LB-ft of torque at 1800 rpm. Power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering translates into a precise, responsive feel at you fingertips. Independent front and rear suspension components dampen the rough stuff on the road. The 2012 Volkswagen Golf's interior design speaks of quality and style, with an instrument panel that doesn't require a pilot's license to operate. Choice of 3-door or 5-door models adds to the Golf's versatility. To that end, we have included a link to 2012 Volkswagen Golf performance parts and accessories on the right side of the page.
Safety is one area that Volkswagen is known to take very seriously. All models have at least dual front airbags, front side airbags, curtain side airbags and antilock 4-wheel disc brakes. An antiskid system is optional .Equipped in terms of comfort features. This makes even long rides quite easy to handle. Some of the things you'll find include air conditioning, cruise control, height-adjustable front bucket seats, a center console, heated power mirrors, power windows and door locks and an AM/FM/cassette/CD player. It is equipped with a standard 2.4-liter, I4, 161-horsepower engine that achieves 22-mpg in the city and 27-mpg on the highway.
The 2012 Volkswagen Golf is roughly parallel in equipment to the Jetta. However, while the Jetta comes in sedan and wagon body styles, the Golf is offered as a two-door and four-door hatchback. As such, the Golf is perhaps a little more on the sporty side than its Jetta siblings. However, both come in a wide array of trims, with several different power levels available. The Golf alone can be had in four models, and that's not including the GTI, covered separately. For 2012, there is one new option that adds an even greater level of security. It is the OnStar assistance system, designed to keep you covered at all times. For northern climates, Volkswagen offers a Cold Weather Package. It includes heated front seats and washer jets.
Anyone who's ever experienced the frustration of dealing with frozen washers while driving down the road will appreciate this option. Volkswagen Golf offers driving excellence and high levels of refinement. It's agile and responsive, making it fun to drive. Yet it's remarkably practical, and offers admirable gas mileage. 2012 Volkswagen Golf is also fairly well equipped in terms of comfort features. This makes even long rides quite easy to handle. Some of the things you'll find include air conditioning, cruise control, height-adjustable front bucket seats, a center console, heated power mirrors, power windows and door locks and an AM/FM/cassette/CD player. The Golf returns for this year with only minor changes.
Emissions have been improved on the vehicle, as well as the front wipers. Additionally, seatbelt and fuel cap warning lights have been added to the instrument cluster. The OnStar Telematics Communication System is being newly offered for this year as an option on all models. Electonic stability traction control is also available optionally. Seats four comfortably, five for short trips. The great advantage of a hatchback, of course, is the amount of cargo space available with the rear seat folded, plus the ease of loading and unloading said cargo.
