VW Golf

The new Volkswagen Golf is available in two trims: S and SE. The 2019 Golf S has a starting MSRP of $21,845* and the 2019 Golf SE starts from $24,145*. Both trim levels are powered by a 147-hp 1.4L turbo four-cylinder engine and earn an EPA-estimated 29 mpg city/37 mpg highway rating. Highlights for the VW Golf include:

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

The Golf is spacious as well! With the rear seats folded, this Volkswagen hatchback offers up to 53.7 cubic feet of cargo space.


The 2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI is available in four trims: S, Rabbit Edition, SE, and Autobahn. Each trim comes with a 228-hp 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine and earns an EPA-estimated 24 mpg city/32 mpg highway rating. Standard Driving Mode Selection lets you alternate between Eco, Comfort, Normal, Sport, and Custom, while an optional navigation system connects you to POIs all over Mehlville. You’ll also enjoy the same amount of cargo space that’s offered inside the VW Golf.

VW e-Golf

The VW e-Golf is powered by a 35.8 kWh 323 V lithium-ion battery with a 125-mile range. Thanks to its all-electric powertrain, the VW e-Golf lets you cruise through Fenton in complete confidence. Additionally, it offers 52.7 cubic feet of cargo room for groceries and luggage.

VW Golf R with 4MOTION® AWD

The 2019 VW Golf R has a starting MSRP of $40,395 and is available in one trim: Golf R with DCC® and Navigation. Like the Golf GTI, it’s powered by a 288-hp 2.0L turbo engine. Standard DCC® adaptive chassis control gives you superb handling on Oakville roads while VW Digital Cockpit keeps you informed. With the rear seats folded down, the Golf R also offers 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space.
