Is the Volkswagen Golf a good first car? Many people ask what I recommend when looking for something practical, with good handling, adequate power and nice interior? The VW Gold does all of these things thanks to a 1.8L Turbocharged 4-cylinder with 170hp and 199 lb.-ft of torque using regular gas. The Gold has independent suspension and a good platform for above average handling. The interior of the Golf is simple, with nice switches and look and two screen sizes starting with a 6.4-inch unit or optional 8-inch screen. These both come standard with Android Auto or Apple Car Play, plus the screen doubles as a backup camera. The Golf is sold in many different trims, starting at a three door hatchback, a 5-door version, a Golf sportwagen, Golf Alltrack, GTI and Golf R.
