For some, the move to an SUV only feels natural, but for others a hatchback in an ideal compromise between the manageability of a compact sedan and the cargo space of a crossover. This is where the 2019 Volkswagen Golf comes into play for Longview TX shoppers. The popular vehicle has been on the market since the 1970s and continues to hold its own thanks to a simple style and plenty of practical features.
For 2019, the model replaces its 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with a 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine for more efficiency. Paired with it is a standard six-speed manual transmission, and update from five-speed in 2018, or an eight-speed automatic, which is also updated from the six-speed automatic available in the 2018 model year.
The 2019 Volkswagen Golf, which is the start to the Golf family, offers two trim levels, the S and SE. Both trims have the same engine and transmission options, but different available features.
Features of the S trim include LED DRLs, a 6.5-inch touchscreen sound system, Car-Net App-Connect with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth with audio streaming, cruise control, power windows and locks, Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Monitoring, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Traffic Alert.
The SE trim adds on an 8-inch touchscreen, panoramic sunroof, keyless access with push-button start, heated front seats and V-Tex leatherette upholstery.
A new driver assistance package is also available for the SE trim that has Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping System and High Beam Control.
