With another 10Best Cars win for 2018, the Golf is a fixture on our awards circuit. We’re not dispensing the honor out of habit—the Golf is truly excellent. It comes standard with a 170-hp turbo inline-four and a six-speed manual; a six-speed automatic is available. The Golf is responsive, predictable, and genuinely fun to drive. The hatchback makes the Golf practical, its price tag makes it attainable, and standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto serve as sweeteners for the younger crowd.
