Though our team may be biased in saying that it's a much better choice than any other cars in its segment, its hard to argue with the facts.

Compare the VW Golf to the Honda Fit in Richmond

  • Get behind the wheel of the Honda Fit and you'll find that it offers far less horsepower than the Volkswagen Golf. With only 130-horsepower to its name, the Fit just can't match the Golf's 170-horsepower.
  • If you're traveling with four and are in need of some extra space for your things, you're likely to want a car that has a spacious cargo area, even with the seats up. Fortunately, the Volkswagen Golf offers 22.8 cubic-feet of cargo space without forcing you to fold down the rear seats.
  • Are you someone who likes to store things in your glovebox? If you do, the Volkswagen Golf's glovebox is ready to spoil you. Unlike the Honda Fit, the Golf offers a cooled and illuminated glovebox for all of your stowing needs.

The Volkswagen Golf vs. the Ford Focus ST in Richmond

  • Shopping for a car on a budget? While the Brown's VW Finance Center is here to help you find low, affordable rates, the best thing you can do is to buy a car that's naturally within your budget. That's why we suggest the Volkswagen Golf. At nearly $6,000 less than the Focus ST, the Golf is a natural money saver.
  • With multiple body styles, engines and transmission options to choose from, the Volkswagen Golf offers more opportunities for customization than the Ford Focus ST does. With only one body style, a standard 2.0-liter engine and no automatic transmission available, the Ford Focus ST aims to be one size fits all. Fortunately, the Golf can be as unique as you.
  • While the Ford Focus ST does offer an array of safety features, it's the Volkswagen Golf that's been rated as an IIHS Top Safety Pick+.


The Volkswagen Golf vs. the Mazda3 in Richmond

  • Again, if you're looking to save on your vehicle purchase, the Volkswagen Golf is able to do all of the work for you. With a base price of $18,545, the Mazda3 5-door is the more expensive option of the two.
  • If you're one for tech-savvy features, then the Golf is made for you. Now offered with the available VW Car-Net App-Connect featuring Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the Mazda3 fails to match up.
  • Other features that are exclusive to the Volkswagen Golf? The Volkswagen Car-Net connected car suite. Equipped with this safety essential, the Golf is able to remotely unlock the vehicle's doors, get help in an emergency and provide boundary alerts on your car.
