2010-2012 Volkswagen Golf Diesel

Compact Hatchback

The Volkswagen Golf is one of the few compact cars on the market today that offers a fuel-efficient diesel motor. The 2.0-liter turbo diesel is rated at 28/41 mpg city/highway and can take the Golf nearly 500 miles between fill-ups. Buyers have the choice of three- or five-door hatchback body configurations -- both are the same size and carry five people. This variety mixed with good interior quality is likely why Consumer Reports recommends the car.
